Just when you thought you've seen your fair share of backyard celebrations, Erika of Light Sky Photography gifts us with this gorgeous DIY and vintage Thanksgiving wedding. Between the metallic pumpkin tablescape to the angel-winged flower kids to the fact that Sheryll is rocking the hell out of her wedding crocs… Our heads are spinning from all this backyard beauty! Oh, and Sheryll's wedding dress is actually a prom dress.

Erika told us: 

They built this shed in their backyard and bought a bunch of furniture and rugs from the thrift store. They are also vegans so 99% of their food was plant based except the turkey and gravy (they compromised with their non vegan friends and family).

Erika was the only vendor at this wedding because the couple DIY-ed everything themselves! Mind. Blown. This might be one of our most favorite backyard Thanksgiving weddings yet!

First, how cute are these pumpkin tablescapes though?

Comments on Ok, THIS is how you do a backyard Thanksgiving wedding

  1. Gotta love a thrift store wedding.
    Wow!
    They made the most of their thrift store purchases.
    And, I totally agree about the wings on the flower girl.
