Who We Are

Originally a “pivot” by wedding planner Allie Shane, owner of Pop The Champagne Events. The Backyard Wedding Collective was born out of necessity
and out of passion- but it represents so much more than a pandemic-time solution. It represents bringing weddings back to their roots. And embracing the idea that celebrating love doesn’t require years of planning or giant budgets. It just takes some coordination, family and friends…and a little cake and champagne too.

The Collective’s Commandments

Everyone deserves to get married

The size of your wedding does not determine the value of your marriage

We believe in family. The one you were born with, the one you choose, and the one you are creating by getting married

The wedding industry is here to serve, not to judge

We are here to create, support, inspire and execute lifelong memories
