Stephanie+Scott’s Backyard Wedding
From the moment I met Stephanie I knew she would be a blast to work with. Her and her family are some of the most genuine and nicest people I have met, seriously, and I’m not just saying that because she offered me moonshine lol. The wedding was held in her grandmother’s backyard. They read their nuptials under a tree wrapped in whimsical lights and decorated with hung lanterns, a tree that she probably spent countless hours running around when she was younger. They worked their butts off making pretty much all the decor and little details by themselves. Scott, being a tattoo artist, wrote all the calligraphy. Her dad and neighbor built this rad beer opening station (they should patent it cuz it rocked). Scott’s friends, who are also artists, drew some amazing artwork which were displayed for all the guests to admire. I’d list every amazing DIY project they did, but then you’ll get tired of reading and miss out on the photos haha.
As much as she warned me about the crazy antics that I may have to witness on her wedding day, I didn’t think she was serious. “I’ve seen worse, trust me.” Those are the words I repeated countless times to her, but boy was I wrong! This was 150% the funnest, craziest, most hysterical and full of laughter (and beer) wedding that I have ever photographed. Which brings me to my disclosure, there are A LOT more party photos in this sweet little post than usual, you have been warned.
This amazing wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty, you can view it here!! How exciting!!
Stephanie’s Grandfather couldn’t be there to see her marry Scott, but he was definitely there in spirit. These orbs appeared in all the photos of when her dad saw her as she waited to walk down the aisle in her grandparent’s bedroom.
Meet Finn, their adorable little boy. Look at those widdle cheeks!!
A backyard wedding in South Florida is so rare, and I have no idea why! They are always filled with love, coziness and best of all memories. Stephanie and Scott, I wish you both all the best and hope you have started a trend for future South Florida couples 😉
