Real Wedding : a backyard affair with large city details, small-town feel

I am totally in love with today's wedding - it's the perfect mix of elegance and fun all at once. Photographed by Melissa McFadden Photography, the wedding of Michelle and Bill took place in a small wine community known as Walla Walla. Michelle's family currently live in Walla Walla where they run Ensemble Cellars. Their ceremony was held in their family church and the reception took place in the backyard of their family home. Some portions of the house were built in 1865 which places the home on Walla Walla's national historic register.

Gotta love the food - appletini's served from Mason jars, wine from the family winery, gourmet food for the adults, pizza for the kids, and a candy bar.

Thank you so much Melissa for sharing today's absolutely gorgeous wedding with my readers. To see more from Melissa McFadden Photography, please visit her web site and blog.
