Cheyanne & Nate Frey: Backyard Micro-Wedding

Who knew when I sat down with Cheyanne & Nate two years ago (almost to the date!) the wedding they envisioned would look much different. But Cheyanne handled the situation with such ease, and had plan a,b,and c for anything that was thrown her way. The morning of her wedding you wouldn't have had any idea that 36 hours prior, her closest friends would pull together this impromptu backyard wedding.


Although there wasn't snow and it was a rather foggy day, Cheyanne's wedding day inspiration was Winter Wedding Boards on Pinterest, and from those boards her favorite (& mine as well) detail of her wedding day came to life - the centerpieces and the girls flower hoops! The most anticipated part of the day was when Cheyanne made her way down the aisle to "Can’t Help Falling In Love" by Haley Reinhart which brought Nate, family and friends gathered to tears.


It was such a pleasure to be part of this day, and the love and support by those gathered was so evident. It was seriously the most emotional and strong feelings of love I've witnessed at a wedding. I personally had to choke back tears myself! By the end of the day the two felt "So grateful, happy, and full of love!"


"Laurie always does a phenomenal job at bringing out the personalities of everyone involved (parents, bridal party, kids, etc.). She gets the best angles and comes up with great ideas on the spot. We wouldn’t change a thing and can’t wait to continue to work with her in the future!"



Were you nervous? How did you calm the nerves?

"I just kept reminding myself that there were many things I couldn’t control, so just take it minute by minute and enjoy it while I can!"

Any advice for those couples planning their wedding now?

"Plan ahead, plan as early as you can, and always have a back up plan"

What advice would you give to future couples for their wedding?

"Go with the flow, and always have a back up plan! (Or a two)"
