Whether decorated with contemporary, clean-lined tables, antique Shaker-style cabinets, or the ever-sought-after subway tile backsplash, the all-white kitchen has been so popular for so long, it’s hard to imagine it ever going out of style.

Quite the contrary; a wedding is a wedding, regardless of size, scope, and location—and smaller guest counts make it possible to get even more creative.

Whether your celebration takes place in the backyard at home or far
