It was a wonderfully warm and sunny 4th of July weekend. Janeen and Akili decided to have their wedding in Akili’s parent’s backyard, making for the perfect family and friends event. Janeen is originally from California, making for the perfect weather for a vintage California style backyard wedding. 🙂
Akili’s father is a professor, and couldn’t get enough of all of the wonderful artwork and artifacts throughout the house. Perfect spot to hang the dress!
Janeen’s mom was so sweet! I don’t think that there were any moments where she didn’t have a smile on her face. 🙂
Recycled wine and champaigne bottles? Yes please! AND- not to mention the fantastic mason jars. 🙂
See? Look at her mom’s beaming smile! Aww. Perfect! 🙂
Here’s the proof…. Let it be known that Janeen jumped higher.
The wedding cake was a rum soaked cake filled with the most delicious fruit, delicious butter, flour and sugar. It was amazing. Janeen’s mom spent all day on this family recipe.
