A Whimsical Backyard Wedding

When I first stumbled upon this wedding, I immediately knew it would be such a wonderful fit for Once Wed. Not only are the bride and groom are just about as sweet as they come, but their entire wedding was a collaborative effort between family and friends which in my opinion is the best kind of celebration. Yota, the beautiful bride, was kind enough to share some of the details behind their whimsical wedding…

Joe and I were married on the 11th anniversary of the day we first met.  We wanted to have a simple outdoor ceremony and a small backyard reception, but my side of the family is Greek and doesn’t do small.  So we compromised and had a big backyard wedding. We were married by a pond at beautiful Larz Andersen Park in Brookline, MA.  A local Boston gypsy jazz band, Sinti Rhythm, led our procession of guests to the ceremony site.
