They had a beautiful Catholic wedding and then a blowout wedding reception in Kelsi’s parent’s backyard. I love backyard weddings because they’re so much more personal and everyone is a little more free to be themselves. They had a “classy country” theme that I think they struck perfectly. Also, check out the treehouse where they spent their first night together. I really need to get one of those!

After the ceremony they canoed across the lake to their reception full of family, food, hilarious toasts and fire dancing! I feel so lucky to be able to hang out with awesome brides and grooms on one of the most special days of their life!
But the best part would have to be the dance floor. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much dancing fury as I saw that night. There were dirty dancing reenactments, giant wigs, a flying groom… entertainment for all!
By the way, are you seeing this wedding venue? I think Belle Gardens is one of the reasons we have Pinterest. This is like the original Pinterest wedding venue – back when you had to cut photos out of magazines for inspiration! This Victorian wedding venue is run by a husband and wife who live on site. They absolutely love what they do and put their whole hearts into every wedding! They are also very dedicated to creating little photo op vignettes all around the property! There’s no possible way to even photograph it all in one day!
Um… wow! Words cannot describe how amazing this wedding was at Broken Top Club in Bend! And I’m not just talking about how pretty all of the details were, or how lovely all of the bridesmaids looked (but as you can see, they were indeed lovely). This wedding just had an extra dose of special. Amanda and Michael were completely surrounded in the joy and love of their family and friends in Jesus.
