Jami & Mike’s Orange & Green Vintage Backyard Wedding at Ancala Country Club: Part I

This adorably styled wedding by la Ricki was the ultimate wedding to close out my summer wedding season this year!  Jami has the most adorable dimples I’ve ever seen and when she told me her ideas of a backyard wedding and that our mutual friend Ricki Uster would be the designer of it all, I just couldn’t wait for this June wedding day.  Mike showed up looking sharp in his J. Crew suit and I loved all of the props the creatively talented event designer la Ricki brought to the portrait session prior to a very intimate backyard wedding ceremony with 20 family members.

Easton and Jameson were the darling little ones who knew how to strike a pose, as you’ll see (and see more next week when the reception is featured).  For now, enjoy Part I of Jami and Mike’s green and orange Anthropologie meets J. Crew styled wedding!

Diana Elizabeth loved it when Jami said during family portraits, “OK everyone smile, she’s going to make us look like we came out of an Anthropologie catalog.”  Music to her ears!
