Small Wedding Weddings

Whitney and Don’s Country Classic Backyard Wedding

Whitney and Don know how to get married right: a breezy custom wedding gown, a relaxed ceremony and reception with their family, beautiful heirloom china and farm flowers, a sunset portrait session in a field of Queen Anne’s lace, a gourmet chef working in the kitchen, and an immediate honeymoon to Ireland.

This was one of the shortest weddings I’ve ever shot, and also one of my favorites.  Whitney and Don chose to keep their wedding small, but it wasn’t lacking a thing.  This was one of those weddings where everything just worked, and I loved being a part of it.

Special thanks to Shannon Maggi for second shooting with me!
