WE'RE MAC & CHRIS! OUR LOVE STORY BEGAN AS HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS. 11+ YEARS LATER WE'RE HUBBY AND WIFE, CO-BUSINESS OWNERS, BEST FRIENDS, AND PARENTS TO OUR FUR BABIES MILO AND ECHO.
We LOVE adventuring and traveling off the beaten path! We are foodies — always on the hunt for an authentic hole in the wall restaurant. When at home you’ll find us curled up on the couch watching a movie with a glass of red wine.
My (Mac) background may not be what you’d expect. I am a genetics laboratory technologist. Working in a fast-paced laboratory I am good at staying calm under pressure, multitasking and organizing.
Chris has a background in management and sales. You better believe Chris is very good with people. It’s not uncommon for me to pull him away from conversing with the grocery store cashier!
Wow your guests, feel no stress!
In September 2020, we hosted our own WONDERFUL backyard COVID wedding with 25 of our closest family and friends. It wasn't our original plan or even our backup plan, but it was better. SERIOUSLY. THE. BEST. We laughed, cried, and smiled the entire day! You could feel the LOVE in the air! We celebrated our big day alongside our guests until 3 am, and had to politely ask them to leave. It was an UNFORGETTABLE day!
HOWEVER. To this day, we are still amazed at the amount of work and coordination it took to plan and host a small event! Planning was ALOT. However, I (Mac), enjoy planning things. Trips, renovations, parties.. you name it. I spent countless hours on Pinterest, buying décor off Facebook marketplace, DIYing and sourcing vendors.
The process of setting up/styling/tearing down our wedding. That was stressful. Setting up and styling took a long time...Like the whole day. We had to ask family and friends to take the day off work to help us set-up our ceremony and reception. Then we spent our first day as newlyweds packing up our wedding. After that we still had to sell it all!
We knew there had to be a better way, so we made one! TA-DA! Intimate Backyard Events was born.
In the end, our special day was the most MAGICAL day that we will cherish forever! We wouldn't have wanted it any other way! That's why we want you to go small too. So you can host STUNNING and STRESS-FREE celebrations with the people who matter the most!
We can’t wait to help design and deliver your dream event!
