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!

Dreamy Plantation Wedding

Dreamy Plantation Wedding

Eric and Bre got married at Club Lake Plantation in Apopka, Florida. It was truly a rustic meets glamorous affair. Bre got the party started with the girls as they were getting ready. I arrived to Taylor Swift blasting, laughing, and a bunch of insanely gorgeous ladies getting ready to celebrate their best friend’s wedding.

Intimate Big Sur Destination Wedding

Intimate Big Sur Destination Wedding

Her and David had decided to do something a little different and get married in Big Sur on Pheiffer Beach. David's uncle married them, her mother Carole planned almost every aspect of the wedding, and they were surrounded by 31 of their closest family and friends on the most epic beach as they said their vows. Wanting to keep things intimate and more so "in the family", they chose to ask me to capture it all. God. Is. Good.
