Hannah and Mike’s Pretty in Pink DIY Backyard Wedding by The Ely Brothers

Today we head over to Ohio courtesy of the The Ely Brothers from Columbus who have sent me in this beautiful Backyard wedding. It’s such a gorgeous wedding, with a beautiful outdoor ceremony, a tonne of DIY and lots of pretty details. The whole day is wonderfully relaxed and the bride looks amazing in her soft floaty dress. The Ely Brothers have done a fantastic job in capturing the day so beautifully.

The lovely couple are Hannah and Mike who were married on 3rd September at Chagrin Falls, Ohio in the backyard of Mike’s family home. Hannah and Mike’s daughter was the flower girl and their best friend performed the ceremony. They had 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen and 180 guests. The wedding took 2 years to plan

Most memorable or unusual moments of your wedding day?
The extreme heat and humidity was unexpected, but didn’t keep us from having a blast. The pony rides and photo booth made it very fun and memorable.

    Where do we begin or end?? Two years to plan = perfection! Love the backstory, the family tree, the pony rides, the backyard, the adorable flower girl and all things combined to make this wedding an affair to remember! Boho wedding? Well, we think it’s totally above and beyond boho chic!
