Backyard wedding in Malibu: Anna + Ryan

Categories   Real Weddings

Let’s finish up the week with a completely adorable and super fun backyard wedding in Malibu… including a day after shoot with horses and a pool. It kind of looks like it’s not real because it’s so incredibly cute, but we promise it is.









Anna and Ryan bought all of their flowers at the LA Flower Mart and had friends and family help arrange them into misc glassware found at thrift stores around town.


For favors they made mix CDs and gave little bags of their favorite candy, gummy bears. And to spice up the tables, they bought 5 different fabrics and had a napkin making party one afternoon with a handful of friends. After the wedding they gave sets to close family and friends… hopefully the same ones who helped make them!




We love super sweet weddings like this… simple, heartfelt and all about the couple (with a few cute details thrown in, of course). You don’t have to go crazy to make your wedding memorable, not that we blame you if you can’t help yourself.

Congrats, Anna and Ryan! You have so many amazing photos to print and frame. We hope you dedicate a wall in your house to your lovely day.

Photography: Michelle King / Venue: Friend’s backyard in Malibu / Wedding dress: BCBG / Day after dress: unmarked vintage piece / Groom’s duds: The Stronghold in Venice / Flowers: LA Flower Market
