Thank you to Carrie Wildes Photography for sharing this super adorable loving backyard wedding! Marissa's dress is gorgeous, and I love the nontraditional flare of this intimate wedding!
This is definitely a pinnable wedding!
Marissa and Scott were going to do a destination wedding in Costa Rica, but they have 3 adorable grandmas that they knew wouldn't be able to travel there. So, they decided to have a sweet little backyard wedding just for them! Dorothy, June, and Barbara were all married over 60 years and they had a photo from each of their weddings with a sign that said Your Legacy is Our Goal. I've known Marissa for gosh, over 8 years know as she is a super talented hair and makeup artist. She told me it was just going to be super simple, and I of course knew she would have the cutest details. Nancy, their friend and officiant, had a little surprise for them during the ceremony. She had asked each of the moms and grandmas to write a sentence about the prayer they have for Marissa and Scott and then she put it all together and read it as a prayer for them as a couple. It was one of the sweetest things ever! To make them the official Mr & Mrs. Smith all 3 grandmas signed the marriage license. After photos with everyone including their dogs Mo and Avery Marissa had the perfect brunch set. Their table was set with china that had little name cards accented with rosemary and a beautiful floral centerpiece. It's pretty obvious these two are just plain made for each other! Just a week after the wedding was over they found out there were pregnant and this ended up being their actual wedding as Marissa couldn't travel to Costa Rica right around their due date. They are SO happy they had this wedding photographed because it ended up being their actual wedding!!!!
