a southern backyard wedding

on october 10, mr. monaco and i attended the most beautiful outdoor wedding in fort mill, south carolina {very close to charlotte}. it took place in their backyard and was so lovely; so well thought out. despite an abundant amount of rain {nothing some tents/straw couldn't fix} the event was flawless and was full of so much love. they had me at eucalyptus, home brewed beer {which i didn't partake in!} market lights, a bluegrass band, a campfire, and southern food stations. congratulations, mr. and mrs. stout!! we were honored to attend your memorable day- it was so special. 
 here are some photos i snapped on my iphone... hope you enjoy! 
 the tables were gorgeous- especially once the candles were lit and started to drip down 
 their neighbor brewed beer for the event and the names were after his three labs - so cute! 
 vintage family photos 
 lavender programs:  
 the strings were beautiful during the ceremony 
 how amazing was the cake?! stunning
 these veggies were so.good.
they also had fried chicken, shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese- lots of southern favs
 a bluegrass band played after the ceremony- a dj would later follow!
  they had large jenga blocks as their guestbook- so cool! we love playing this at breweries around the city- and had a regular set at our rehearsal dinner for people to sign wedding advice/notes on...

  1. What a cute, fun, laid back wedding! Our wedding was much more formal, but I think when we renew our vows, we're do something more casual like this.

    All the Best,
