This delightful backyard wedding comes to us from Melanie Reyes Photography, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan! Here’s Melanie to tell us more:

When I met Paul & Brandie I immediately loved what they were about. See, they had planned a BIG quintessential Ann Arbor wedding – big bridal party, Ann Arbor venue, 200+ people, – the whole shebang. When they added up all the costs for such a wonderful affair they took a hard look at the numbers and said, “Do we want a big wedding or should we instead use that money and buy a place to call HOME?” So that’s what they did.

See more after the cut!

They bought a Gorgeous Ann Arbor home and put in a lot of hard work to make it a beautiful home. They invited their immediate families and two special friends to their home, “Come and celebrate us saying YES to each other.” They gathered in their beautifully manicured backyard in the heart of Ann Arbor and with the love and support of those closest promised Forever and Always.

After a variety of photographs and clinking drinks the group of 22 headed to Ann Arbor for a feast at the amazing Aventura Restaurant. The intimate party moved to the wine cellar where they Toasted and Cheered and Feasted – and there was not a dry eye in the house.

Congratulations Brandie & Paul and thank you Melanie for sharing! For more information about Melanie Reyes Photography, please visit her website.
