A Dream Wedding in Someone Else’s Backyard

MARINA GIOVANNELLI in her photo 3439750-1


MARINA GIOVANNELLI, in her quest for a distinctive wedding location, said she wanted to break from the “formulaic feel” of affairs in hotels and museums in the city of her childhood, San Diego.

I saw this article in the New York Times and it made me think about when I was searching for venues. Newport, RI has gorgeous mansions you can rent for events that I looked at while searching.


Would any of you take this route?

I would totally do that! There's a beautiful huge house by DH's parents house that I dreamed about renting out for our wedding -but never really inquired b.c it's privately owned and it would have been more of a headache!


I think the idea is awesome. The price tag and planning would be a little bit more I would think...


I just love how now a days people say "this is or isn't cookie cutter" and what not-when almost everything could be considered "cookie cutter" because there are so many people doing so many different things, kwim? Love the idea though! Great post :)

This is definitely an awesome idea and I actually brought this up to my BM that I'm currently assisting to plan her wedding.

Yes I would have done this! Originally we were going to have the ceremony in our backyard and I wanted to have a very intimate ceremony, but DH family was complaining. He has a large family and they all wanted to come with children in tow so we had to change that idea!
