Intimate Backyard Wedding In Georgia | Savannah Wedding Photographer

I shot Olivia’s friends wedding in North Georgia a few months back and us girls had the best time together. It’s such an honor when a client hires you from a past experience at a wedding. Olivia and Austin chose a small, intimate backyard wedding on her grandfathers property. The house is everything my creative mind desires, history, character and amazing light. They started their ceremony with hand written vows. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Austin washed Olivia’s feet. It was the sweetest gesture I’ve ever seen during a ceremony and overwhelmed me with joy. After the ceremony we transitioned to the reception area where pizza and cake were waiting. I repeat, PIZZA and CAKE were waiting. I have to admit that pizza was crazy good and I devoured it in like two seconds, not joking. They finished the evening with a beautiful sunset sendoff in one of America’s classic muscle cars. It was a dream.

Catiyln and Mike had the sweetest intimate backyard wedding. Everything about their day was full of warmth and love. From the moment I arrived, I felt included and welcomed as part of the family. I knew right away this day was going to be amazing.

Gathered around a hand full of friends and family, they said their vows under a big beautiful oak tree then celebrated with coffee and a bonfire! They kept things simple and true to who they are. This is why I have such a huge place in my heart for small weddings. No stress, no expectations, just love.

Sweet words from Catiyln:

Two of the past three years I have been content. It was just me and my Marshall.. enjoying life together. Just us, everyday. I had no need for anyone else to love. This past year the same has continued although, I started to have a longing for someone to share Saturday morning huddle house coffee with.. someone to connect with, to share stories, and most importantly someone fellowship with who shared the same love for God. So I prayed. I prayed for God to send me someone who just knocked me off my feet, and someone who was just as crazy about me. Someone who without a doubt had been sent by Him. Because if I had to question it then I couldn’t even entertain the idea. Then in July.. God sent him.. the one whom my soul loves. Someone to pray with, worship with, lean on, laugh with, and occasionally share Saturday morning coffee with.
