You are fabulous and have inspired me to cater my wedding! We are thinking of a backyard wedding but unsure. If you don't mind sharing where did you have your wedding?

Amanda, I'm so glad you're thinking of doing your own food! We did our wedding at a industrial loft space. We have no yard and space is so difficult to come by in Chicago, so we were limited. I love the idea of a backyard event. If you have the space, I say work it!

Please, let me know how it goes. Send pics!! I'm so excited for you.
