A Rustic Backyard Wedding at a Private Residence in Balmoral, Manitoba

Robyn Makowski (28, a Laboratory Technician) and Greg Parsons (35, a QA Chemist) held their wedding in the place where they planned to spend the rest of their lives together: their own home in Manitoba! The couple exchanged their vows outdoors in their backyard, with the backdrop of gorgeous trees behind them. "The natural beauty of our yard was perfect for the wedding," Robyn says. The cocktail hour and reception were held in a large white tent, also in the couple's backyard. A color palette of purple and gray and burlap tablecloths and accents brought out the rustic theme the couple was aiming for. "We are both outdoorsy people, so having the wedding outdoors in our yard really reflected us as a couple; all the DIY touches allowed us to personalize our wedding and make it unique," Robyn says.
