I am in love with the simplicity of this gorgeous vintage backyard wedding. When Meredith from Benfield Photography emailed me I couldn’t resist to share. The bride and groom’s style is beyond stunning! She shares:

The intimate ceremony and reception were held at the home of bride’s parents in Rogers, Arkansas. The bride and groom both reside in San Francisco, but came to Arkansas to fulfill the bride’s childhood dream of getting married in her parents’ back yard, overlooking a beautiful lake, among the Arkansas fall leaves! This couple has true style, and every detail had a very vintage feel. The vintage Rolls Royce served as the perfect prop for their old fashioned style portraits!

His peacock feather boutonniere and pin striped suit (note he’s not wearing a tie!) screams 40’s inspired to me.
