September Backyard Wedding A Touch of Glitz

Labor Day Weekend is the unofficial end of summer and the unofficial beginning of fall weddings! We had the chance to look back a little bit to those warm summer days when one of our own brought in their wedding album from Mikala Sonia Photography.

Emily & Chris tied the knot with a backyard summer soiree complete with vibrant purples, greens and touches of gold with some fabulous gold glitter napkins. Their guests danced the night away under the tent, but had the chance to enjoy lawn games like a giant Connect-4 and Cornhole before the sun went down.
