Elegant Backyard Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer | Matt & Angie

Elegant Chicago Backyard Wedding

Backyard weddings have become a very popular option over the past few years, and they are a beautiful way to celebrate with your closest guests at a special location. Matt & Angie enjoyed an elegant backyard wedding at their home in Huntley, Illinois. One of the highlights was defintely the 'First Look'- Matt thought he would see Angie but instead saw his daughter. She presented him with one of the coolest gifts Matt never would have imagined—Pilot Lessons. I think his face says it all!! Matt and Angie’s outdoor wedding in their backyard was also GORGEOUS, and we are so excited to share some of their photos as some backyard wedding inspiration!

Flowers and Decorations

Matt and Angie chose elegant flower arrangements and decorations for their backyard wedding. We loved that their decorations totally reflected their personalities and their style! Everything was so tasteful and sophisticated while blending perfectly into the outdoor setting. Periwinkle Florals out of Cary, Illinois, did the floral arrangements for this wedding, and we were OBSESSED! The all-white bridal bouquet and wedding arch arrangement were so elegant and romantic.

Dresses for Backyard Weddings

When you plan a backyard wedding, the backdrop of your day is going to be unique, so finding a dress that fits your style while going with the theme of your day can be a challenge. There are so many styles of wedding dresses out there, though, from vintage to modern to beachy to boho. We were swooning over Angie’s wedding dress from Genevieve’s Bridal Couture in Deer Park. The wedding dress perfectly matched the elegant theme of the day with lace details and a low back. It also fit perfectly with Matt’s classic black suit from Hugo Boss!
