One of the very first decisions we made for our wedding was to have an intimate ceremony AND then two receptions later; one in Illinois for E’s large family and one in Hawaii for my large family. E really wanted our Illinois reception to be a pig roast in his parent’s backyard (what an awesome idea – Hawaiians love pig, too!) so that’s exactly what we’re doing next summer.

Here’s the mood board I put together for our ‘Vintage Hawaiiana’ Backyard Pig Roast reception
