Alexandra & Josh

A Simple ROmantic Backyard FÊte


Most of the time, the most treasured of events are the direct result of friends and family coming together in mutual pursuit of celebration and love. For Alexandra and Josh's backyard August wedding in Lansing, Michigan, dozens of selfless individuals pitched in to serve this special couple as they finally came together as husband and wife. From the neighbors who helped string dozens of strands of magical twinkle lights in the backyard trees to the neighbor who presided over the ceremony, from friends who styled the bride's hair to friends who created the wedding stationery, the little things at this wedding were very much responsible for the bigger picture. It was a picture inevitably full of beautiful simplicity on the surface, but below the surface of blush, sage and Gatsby-inspired details was a picture of love sweet love and family.
