From across the Atlantic Ocean, Allyson + Daniel planned a fun, simple and lovely backyard wedding. The two, who met and live in Germany, planned a wedding in Allyson’s hometown of Marshfield, Wisconsin. Daniel’s family came in from California, and friends flew in from Germany, to help the couple celebrate. They had friends and family help them with the event. From the backyard, (her brother’s) to make-up, music, officiants and details, everyone had a bit of a hand in their day. Their nieces and nephews even planned a little shower of petals for a photo op! I love that these two set aside some time to head to down the block for some gorgeous sunset photos. I normally drive right by where their wedding was on the way to my in-laws, so I had bee scoping out the location and the light. And man, we lucked out with a beautiful July sunset! After their wedding, they headed to California to relax before flying back to Germany. I loved that these two planned a wedding that was truly about them and their lives and the people that are important to them. It is so easy to get caught-up in wedding planning and details, details, details. But these two had the perfect day that spoke to who they are. I am so glad that I was able to be part of it!
