When most people think of weddings they picture giant ballrooms filled with hundreds of guests, elaborate lighting, waiters, etc. And while I adore those kind of weddings, I’ve kind of fallen in love with the more intimate settings during 2015. Twice this year I’ve had the privilege of photographing weddings that had less than 100 guests and were hosted in small, but beautiful, backyards of private residences. While the big parties are always fun, the thing I’ve grown to love about the smaller weddings is the intimacy, the cozy feeling and the fact that the couple is surrounded by the people who are closest to them. It’s great for the guests too because everyone gets a chance to chat with the couple and personally celebrate with them!
The most recent instance was Aaron and Veronica’s intimate backyard wedding in Buena Park, CA. Here’s a few of my favorite highlights from the day:
Aaron and Veronica opted for an intimate backyard wedding. It was the perfect ending to their beautiful day. I loved the rustic yet elegant look of their burlap and mason jar centerpieces! The adorable succulent guest favors were the perfect finishing touch to their decor!
