I love everything about backyard weddings and receptions. There is just something SO romantic about inviting your closest friends and family to your home and the possibilities for making it completely personal are endless! Seriously, it is a planner’s dream and Becky and Devin did not disappoint!
I have known Becky for about 16 years now (which would mean that we met when we were 10, right Becky? ;) ) and anyone who knows her, loves her. I am quite certain of it. She is the epitome of a southern woman: beautiful (inside and out), thoughtful and kind. Oh, and she is a planner like me so I consider it destiny that we would become instant friends. So needless to say when she contacted me last fall about photographing her wedding to her sweetheart, Devin, I was over the moon excited and beyond honored.
Drawing their inspiration from a rustic, backyard BBQ wedding, Becky and Devin wanted a comfortable, laid back atmosphere where it felt like it was a party their guests would throw themselves. From hay bale couches covered with gorgeous quilts to a fun game of corn hole, guests celebrated with the guests of honor well into the evening.
Becky and Devin, thank you again for the opportunity to witness such a beautiful display of love. From start to finish, in every detail, you made everyone feel so at home and welcomed. Your longing gazes, tearful prayers and thoughtful words were full of emotion and I could not have been more happy and grateful to capture your first day as husband and wife (even if that did mean we had to run from a large snake in the pasture, lol). May God bless your marriage and I look forward to capturing many more “firsts”. Love you, Amber.
