Barbara + Eric: Backyard Bohemian

On a perfect Las Vegas day in mid-April, Barbara & Eric gathered their families and dearest friends in the backyard of Barbara's childhood home to celebrate their BIG day. The sun was shining, the wind was calm and love was certainly in the air!
Barbara & Eric's vision for their BIG day was imparted to us in just three simple words: bohemian, gypsy, rustic. And with that, our creative juices were flowing with endless possibilities! Our goal was to create a feeling of unconventional beauty, using gypsy-esq stylings. Think vibrant wild blossoms mixed with antique gold, Moroccan trays, cut glass, and vintage rustic woods.
Guests gathered on Moroccan rugs, vintage poufs and wooden pews as they bore witness to a breathtakingly intimate ceremony under a large Olive tree. After the ceremony, guests mingled while enjoying light bites and cocktails. Guests were then welcomed to their dining tables where they enjoyed a traditional Greek family-style dinner of pita, hummus, tzatziki, seasonal grilled vegetables and even lamb chops prepared on the family's backyard barbecue by the wonderful catering team at Cut & Taste. After dinner, it was time to dance the night away under the stars (and beautiful bistro lights strung by our friends at LED Unplugged.) Rather than the traditional wedding cake for dessert, the Mother of the Bride homemade authentic Greek pastries. Guests rounded out the evening by gathering around the fire pit to roast chocolate filled marshmallows wrapped in graham cracker crumbs...delicious!
