The best surprises are often the ones when things don’t go as planned. In the case of Andrea and Josh’s love story, that couldn’t be more true.

While they originally were hoping for a forest wedding in a California park, the pandemic had other plans in store. “Like most weddings this year, Covid greatly altered Andrea and Josh’s original wedding plans, resulting in a location change and guest list adjustment,” explains their photographer Tiffany of Tiffany Longeway Photography. “But these two love birds took the changes in stride and ended up with a backyard boho wedding that is what dreams are made of.”

And what a dream it was!

Fall tones including burnt orange and moss green added color to the relaxed backyard ceremony that was complete with vintage rugs lining the makeshift aisle and a handmade arch backdrop. It was the perfect setting for the exchange of vows with their closest friends and family there to witness the exciting moment. “My husband’s vows blew me out of the water, he had everyone laughing and crying,” recalls Andrea.

While not the original plan brought about the best, most unforgettable memories.
