Lydia and Stephen hosted an intimate wedding in the backyard of the home she grew up in Charlotte.  I’m a sucker for backyard weddings because we also wed in my parents’ backyard.  There’s something super special about celebrating in a place with many milestones and memories.

Lydia grew up in a large family, and as the youngest, she has many, MANY nieces and nephews.  Her and Stephen also have a little girl of their own who is ridiculously adorable.  Even with big families, you could tell that everyone on both sides are crazy close and love these two very much.

Thanks to Natalie for second shooting!

L+S:  Thanks for choosing me to document such a personal day in your lives.  I really enjoyed getting to meet your big family and felt like part of it by the end of the night.  I wish you three the best as you officially begin your life together.

Love first looks for this very reason.  We also had a ton of extra time in great light to shoot before the wedding festivities.
