Ashley + Derek's vintage boho backyard wedding was such a long time coming, but 100% WORTH THE WAIT! This sweet couple was supposed to get married back in April, but they were forced to reschedule their wedding for this fall at The Hamilton Manor. Unfortunately, that wasn't their last reschedule, because Ashley and Derek ended up having to push their wedding back to December of 2021.
Despite several setbacks, Ashley and Derek still wanted to get married in 2020, so Ashley's childhood neighbor offered his backyard to her and Derek to use for their micro wedding ceremony. Little did Sara know JUST how incredible this backyard was though! The yard was shared by two neighbors who had designed it to look like a literal park with beautiful garden paths. And the best part? They let all of their neighbors walk around and enjoy the yard whenever they want! How FREAKIN' epic is that?!
One of Sara's favorite things about Ashley and Derek, is how sweet and welcoming they are. As soon as Sara arrived for the day of the wedding, Ashley gave her the biggest congratulatory hug as Sara had just tied the knot with Kev in Maine a few days before! Sara says that Ashely instantly makes her feel like they're best friends and they think its so special that they both bought houses around the same time as well as got married in the same week!
After Ashley and Derek's ceremony, all of their guests walked around the corner together to Ashley's parent's backyard, where their reception was set up under a stunning sail cloth tent! Ashley and Derek had such awesome style and we love all of their vintage and boho touches in the décor. For dinner they served their closest friends and family gourmet PIZZA. Uh, yes please!! And it was just a super special evening because Derek's family flew in all the way from Oregon to join them. Plus, we cannot forget about Ashley and Derek's cute pup, Edgar, who was present for the entire wedding day!
