Home Real Weddings Backyard Krysia + Michael’s Charming Backyard Wedding

Apparently this week of Real Weddings is the week of gorgeous and adorable nuptials featuring dogs and horses. I just cannot get enough, from the sweet dog on Monday, the horse and buggy on Tuesday, and the escorts for the bridesmaids from today’s sweet event. If I get married again, I’m most definitely including goats – I do live in Portland after all, I can get away with it. Perhaps some chickens, as well? Enjoy.

From the photographer: Krysia, Michael and their families put so many personal touches into this beautiful backyard wedding. Krysia’s parents offered their beautiful property for the wedding – they even prepared it especially for the event with new landscaping, all of which was done by Krysia and her mom. Special wedding party participants included the family’s pony, goat and dog, all of which walked down the aisle with a bridesmaid. Krysia and her sister prepared the pony’s mane themselves that morning, all done up with their hair and makeup, getting the pony ready, too!

The flowers, origami cranes and other decorations were all done by the couple and their families. They even prepared most of the food themselves ahead of time!

I'm Whitney, your friendly neighborhood DIY Bride content contributor. I live in the Pacific Northwest (land of great beer, even better coffee, VooDoo Doughnuts, and lots o’ rain) with my hubby and our two dogs. A native Oregonian, I'm into hiking, trips to the beach, wine tasting, and farmers markets. My favorite activity has to be curling up in a chair with a good book and James Taylor on the stereo, after a day of madly crafting, baking, and writing. Along with working with DIY Bride, I also plan weddings and events in the Northwest.
