This sweet and intentional backyard wedding was my last wedding of 2018 and the perfect way to close out a beautiful season. I am incredibly thankful for every wedding day I get to be a part of, and these little backyard weddings are great at reminding me what this job is all about. Every single detail of these two’s wedding day was true and unique to them. They did everything they wanted to and nothing they didn’t have to.
Berklee and Johnny road-tripped from their home in Tennessee all the way out to California to wed in her grandparent’s backyard. They were surrounded by twenty of their closest friends and family, had two people in their “bridal party” and had their ceremony in the dark. There was twinkle lights, vintage rugs, and beautiful blue decor done by her mom and grandma. Berklee wore a gorgeous two-piece Grace Loves Lace dress and was barefoot all day. They brought their favorite tamales from back home and ate family style with lots of wine and laughter all around. There were traditional cupcakes, as well as a beautiful raw vegan cake with fresh flowers on top. They shared their vows privately, celebrated their first dance with lots of bubbles, and danced the night away after dinner. There was no pressure, no strict timeline, and no fuss at all.
Because their wedding was so small, Berklee and Johnny knew they didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time on formal pictures the day of. Instead they opted for extra family photos and a day after session at Sequoia National Park. It was truly so special to get to show them around one of my favorite National Parks, and I will be sure to link those photos up above. For now, enjoy all the little moments that made Berklee and Johnny’s backyard wedding so perfectly them.
