Backyard Elegance

Since Matt & Jen are thinking about a backyard style reception, I have become particularly smitten with the gorgeous stylistic details used to accomplish this look and feel. Backyard does not need to mean basic. The following outdoor reception photos depict outdoor rustic glamour at its finest.

The picnic tables, twinkle lights, and lanterns have my dreaming of warm summer nights dining al fresco.

Have you even been to an outdoor reception? What was the best/worst part about it?

E and I had a partial outdoor reception in our backyard-- our tables were under a tent, but our dance floor was outside (with lights stung across it.) The best part was that the weather was beautiful and clear, but then it did get a bit chilly as the evening wore on and one of the heaters we had rented didn't work when we tried to light it (that was probably the worst part!)

I am in love! the only problem with our particular backyard is size. and to rent a tent is the same price as going to kirkland house with chairs and tables included and a tent! (but then theres no kictchen!)
