Backyard Charlotte Wedding - Rebeccah + Josiah
When all hopes were lost, Rebeccah and Josiah decided to get married in their Charlotte, NC backyard home (well the bride’s backyard that is). A wedding that I am sure they will truly remember. Take their wedding to inspire yourself to do the same if your thinking about doing a backyard wedding.
Backyard Charlotte Wedding - Ceremony
The ceremony took place at a local Charlotte Church which they were either part of the crew or had access. However everything else was (getting ready, and reception) was done in the brides backyard. They had about 50 guest and all were close friends and family.
Rebeccah got ready in the basement of her home right in front of the window. So it was easy for me access the backyard so I can capture the family helping setup the reception while bride was getting ready.
Wedding During Covid19 Pandemic
Everyone’s life has changed completely during covid pandemic and being a photographer, I thought that weddings are done. However, love does not care about the pandemic or covid and will always find a way.
So far, I have covered three backyard weddings and this one was just as romantic as a regular wedding. Having lived in Charlotte, NC for quite some time, I knew my way around the city. Rebeccah’s home was right in the center of Charlotte, NC.
Backyard Wedding Charlotte - Reception
Grand entrance, the shoe game, the cake cutting, and all those activities was done in the backyard of Rebeccah’s home. Dad did an amazing job decorating the backyard with the help with the siblings!
I did alot of the portraits of the bride and groom at the backyard simply because it was a lot better background wise then at the church. However, we did get some amazing shots in the church as well.
So with, people that are still debating on wether to get married are not because some venues are not allowing weddings, there are always other options available. And I hope Rebeccah’s and Josiah’s wedding have given you guys some inspiration to continue or move forward with your own plans.
