Backyard Bliss | Sanford, Florida

Andrea + Miles | Elegant Backyard Wedding

When Andrea first contacted me about their backyard wedding, I was STOKED. I love literally all weddings, but the intimate ones are what I envision for my wedding one day. When I showed up in Sanford for their little gathering, I was BLOWN AWAY. I have never in my life seen such an elegant backyard wedding until theirs. It sat behind the three properties that Miles’ parents owned. The ceremony took place right next to the pool as all of their closest friends and family gathered around. There was a ridiculously gorgeous garden area where we did their bride and groom portraits. The cocktail hour came complete with a sweet back yard bar and fire pit. And the reception…you guys. Clear tents for receptions are the way to go! Clear tents give you that perfect coverage in case Florida decides to rain, but keeps everything feeling so open! So your guests stay dry and still get killer views of your reception venue. Throw up some market lights and you’re golden.

So if you’re on the fence about whether you want an intimate back yard wedding or not, check these out!
