Hannah and Patrick's wedding took place in the backyard of the bride's childhood home. Although a beautiful property before, the months of preparation all came together on the morning of the wedding. There could not have been a more perfect setting for these two to express their love and celebrate their vows. Everyone pitched in to transform the already gorgeous backyard into the setting for a globally-infused wedding celebration.
Each element of the Deaton's wedding was carefully thought out and designed with love. I was amazed at how much the community of Hannah and Patrick pitched in to pull off such a perfect day. Friends and family created music, flower arrangements, center pieces, and hors d'evours.
Despite a rainy morning, friends and family finished getting the house and yard in order while the bride and groom readied themselves for the ceremony.
Separately, Hannah and Patrick left the homestead and ventured to a local bridge for a moment to themselves before the ceremony. Once the sun was shining, Hannah and Patrick headed to a local park to spend some time together for a first look before the ceremony.
During the session, a young bagpiper could be heard playing in the distance. He was kind enough to pose with the bride and groom on their wedding day!
The love that Hannah and Patrick displayed for one another and each guest was seen in every detail of their globally-infused garden wedding. Most notably, was the live music keeping rhythm throughout the day. Click on the music below to hear Taylor Rae and Sweet Poison Victim.
The music set the pace for an incredible ceremony.
Guests mingled during the backyard cocktail party before a seated dinner in the front of the house. Origami place cards directed attendees to their seats. Each table had a one-of-a-kind centerpiece.
The Catablu Grille out of Fort Wayne catered the affair. The dining room of the Miller's house was transformed into a spectacular buffet.
The day turned into the night and guests returned to the backyard for a night of dancing and relaxing with friends.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Deaton!
