Backyard Wedding for the Books: Sydney & Greg

There is something enchanting about the home where Sydney and Greg were married. When you walk through the front door, you immediately know that an infinite number of memories of love and laughter filled the space. Every book, every picture frame, and every object has a story. This was the home of Sydney’s beloved grandmother, and the perfect setting for Sydney and Greg’s backyard wedding.

Sydney and Greg are equally loving, funny, expressive, and they both exude all things cool. Greg can pull off a top hat and handlebar moustache¬† like nobody’s business. Not to mention, he can also balance a chair on his chin. Come on — if that’s not badass, I don’t know what is.

Sydney is the life of the party, always bursting in song. At times she used her handmade AMAZING flower bouquets as a mock microphone. She even had a mix of wedding songs playing while she was getting dressed. Sydney’s antics are always memorable. After Sydney and Greg cut the cake, Sydney turned the bride and groom cake toppers towards each other to make them kiss. Everything she does makes you smile!

One of the funniest details I’ve ever seen was something that most guests didn’t have a chance to view. As a joke, one of Sydney’s bridesmaids gave her a pair of socks with¬† the jail release number printed on the sock. “Well, if you get into jail, the only thing they let you keep are your socks,” she said. “Just in case.”

Sydney, Greg, and both of their families poured their love into every detail of the wedding. The backyard was draped with flags of different colors, and was the perfect resemblance of prayer flags strung across the mountains in Nepal. According to tradition, prayer flags promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. It is commonly believed that prayer flags will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. I couldn’t wish for more for such an incredible couple like Sydney and Greg.
