California rock ‘n roll backyard wedding from Rad and In Love
Who here loves backyard weddings done right? Then you’ll love Krystal + Jonny’s 40-guest nuptials at their home in Los Angeles. Since they were tying the knot at home, they wanted to repurpose as much decor as they could and make sure everything represented them both to a T. Storage baskets doubled as favor boxes and trays, Jonny made a playlist for them to listen to afterward, and their photos by Rad + In Love felt like that perfect representation of their lives.
Krystal loved that her Leanne Marshall gown from Love and Lace Bridal Salon perfectly balanced her tattoos with its silk fabric, deep-v, and open back. So pretty!
Krystal says, Jonny and I are both really laidback people and we wanted our wedding to reflect that. We knew early on that we wanted an intimate wedding and having it at our home seemed like the perfect idea! We had recently landscaped the entire back garden since becoming engaged and I could just see us there in front of our closest friends and family saying “I do”. In the end it was exactly what we had envisioned, it was a perfect mix of our styles!
After we said I Do, Jonny and I came into the house and had a little bit of time alone. We had a glass of champagne and sat on our couch and laughed about how nervous we were! It was so nice to have that time together before the festivities began. Jonny jokes that the spicy fusilli pasta was his most memorable moment, but he says, “The real most memorable moment was when I first saw you start to come down the aisle. The rest of the day was a bit of a blur, but that moment and how I felt is completely clear.”

As soon as Jonny and I became engaged, I started the planning process. We were in London for 6 months so researching vendors and trying to plan from an ocean away was difficult. Our biggest hurdle was parting ways with our original wedding planner four months before the wedding. We had found them while we were overseas, but when we got back to Los Angeles and sat down with our assigned day-of coordinator we found that we didn’t share the same vision. Luckily that lead us to Gerry of Galas by Gerry, who was the perfect fit!
So glad it worked out. Congrats, you two!
