Real Backyard Wedding Inspiration

Real Backyard Wedding

Love was in full bloom for this gorgeous rustice elegance, backyard wedding.

Hailee and Mike celebrated their special day surrounded by the people most important to them. The weather was perfect for a ceremony on Lake Toho in Kissimmee. Then they moved to the reception which was held in the backyard of family-owned land. The property was completely transformed with a gorgeous clear tent, flooring, lighting and florals. 

Tent and Decor Design

Being a wedding industry professional for 7+ years, Hailee has designed and seen hundreds of weddings. The day finally came for her to officially design her own backyard wedding. Hailee had her vision and everything planned when it came down to color combinations, lighting, floral, tenting, tablescapes, and much more. Needless to say, Mike didn’t have much say, but the event turned out beautifully. The happy couple booked their wedding furniture and decor with Rentaland Tent and Event Rentals as well as RW Events.

Getting Ready for the Ceremony

The morning of the wedding was pretty stress-free. Hailee was confident in her vendor team and wedding planner Pavone Events handling it all for her. The ladies got dressed at Hailee’s childhood home and had an emotional first look with her dad and grandmother while Mike and his mother had a first look before the ceremony. Hailee’s hair and makeup were done by Kristy’s Artistry Design Team.

Family is one of the most important aspects in Hailee and Mike’s life and they both wanted to incorporate their family in parts of their wedding day. Hailee was escorted down the aisle by her father and grandmother. The couple’s closest friends and family stood next to them in support of their union.

Details, Details, Details

The details were so important to Hailee and Mike because they wanted to be able to re-live their beautiful day every time they go back to their wedding album. One of the much-needed details was the restroom trailer, which was provided by Luxe Flush. The trailer was stationed in the backyard of the family property with the tented reception space as well. Hailee and Mike danced on a cloud to “Heaven” by Jason Aldean which matched their hashtag perfectly #oncloudcarvalho. The first dances had everyone in tears. Hailee and Mike LOVE cake pops so instead of a traditional cake topper, they went with cute little bride and groom cake pops and fed them to each other when it was time to cut the cake.

The Party Starts Here

As soon as the dance floor opened after dinner, it was full all night. The entertainment by Kenny Kings El Timbalero and party music selection by Press Play Entertainment was phenomenal and had everyone on the floor wobble-ing, cupid shuffling, and many more moves no one knew about. You can see the energy and fun everyone was having in the photos. Along with a night full of partying was a delicious meal provided by Big City Catering.

I've Had The Time Of My Life

It was time to wrap up the end of a perfect day full of love and family. Hailee and Mike had a sky lantern release with their parents and the wedding party followed by the last dance to “The Time of My Life.” They truly did have the time of their life on their wedding day and exited to their getaway car, Mike’s choice of a blue Ford Mustang.
