Bohemian Inspired Backyard Wedding, in Milford, IN – Hannah & Benji

From the dried flower petal exit, fresh wood-fired pizza cutting to start the reception, or the oriental themed rugs lining the aisle – the Nisly wedding was full of the most intricate, bohemian details with the most relaxed, natural motives for the entirety of the wedding day.

One could say that this Milford, IN backyard-feel wedding was a family affair, using the backyard of the groom’s family’s home, freshly brewed beer created in the Nisly’s own brewery in their basement, and the whole extended family decorating and setting up to make this fairytale come true.

As I entered the Nisly home this past June, I was reminded of the familiar feeling of peace. As back in 2021, I photographed Benji’s, the groom’s, sister married in this exact same spot! The Nisly’s and I have a history headed back to Elementary school, where I attended with their kids through high school. I have always been welcomed with the most open arms, offered the kindest gestures as I enter. It was a honor to witness this almost decade long love of Hannah and Benji become official as they shared intimate vows, created a time capsule to open on an anniversary, and open the floor to have deep friendships story-tell their way through speeches.

I cannot say enough good things about this wedding or this family (and also the INSANE amount of delicious eats: fresh wood fired pizza, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream from Elkhart, IN, classic appetizers, a popcorn + seasoning station, chips + snacks, custom royal icing cookies, and so much more!).

To top it all off, every vendor I truly had the most confidence in, and wow did everyone blow me away!

Thank you to these incredible vendors who made this day wonderful for Mr + Mrs Nisly!
