Chris + Kari's Extreme Home Makeover Backyard Wedding

Planning a wedding always involves a lot of work, but it doesn’t always involve a whole lot of manual labor. Chris and Kari chose to take on the additional challenge of building their own wedding venue right in their back yard. Side by side, with the help of their family and friends, they took a large patch of dirt and created a space that they will enjoy long past their wedding day, a place that their family will call home for many years to come!

Chris and Kari have the kind of relationship that you just love to see. Their story is one of persistence, friendship, care and a whole lot of dancing! You could hear in the words that they spoke to each other on their wedding day just how much they enjoy each other, respect each other and love each other. There’s not a lot we can say about them that they didn’t say more earnestly and eloquently about each other in their letters and vows, so without further ado… enjoy their wedding trailer!
