A private backyard filled with a guest list of 52 was the ideal setting for Liza & Joe’s intimate backyard wedding in Pennsylvania.

Instead of dancing, guests socialized and competed in lawn games.

From the bride:¬†When Joe and I began planning our wedding last March there were two things we envisioned it would be; simple and intimate. With those two things in mind, we picked our venue, a family friend’s property, and we compiled a guest list with a grand total of 52 people. As for the lunch boxes, that idea came after we struggled to find a reasonably priced caterer we liked. So instead of doing a fancier full course meal we opted to use a local cafe and serve our guests a sandwich, homemade chips, salad, and a cookie all neatly packaged in a brown craft box stamped with a little message. There was no dancing, but instead, people sat around the fire, played games, and just socialized. It was a very laid back and stress free day for Joe and I and we are so thankful we were able to fully enjoy ourselves with our closest family and friends.
