• Steven + Jennifer

Backyard weddings are unlike any type of wedding. There is something so relaxed and welcoming about them. I knew as soon as I read Jen’s first email about what they were envisioning for their big day that this wedding was going to be a ton of fun! Steven and Jen wanted to get married at home… where they hang out with friends and family… where they feel most like themselves and where they want to spend the rest of their life. It seemed only fitting that they would start their new life together in a place that they hold so dear to their hearts. The only thing that was missing were the pups!! We missed their fur babies but with all of the hard work that a DIY wedding entails, it was probably smart to leave the puppies with the sitters. These two worked so hard pulling this day together. They did everything themselves and since our own wedding was in my parent’s backyard, I know the feeling!

 At moments, it can be overwhelming but as soon as you walk down the aisle, all of the stress and work seems to be forgotten because you’re about to marry the love of your life! Steven and Jen’s ceremony was amazing. I didn’t want it to end! Their love for one another is so evident in the way they look and interact with one another. Both Steven and Jen have such sweet, genuine demeanors about them. They are truly a perfect pair and we couldn’t be more excited for them!! They are currently living it up in Mexico and we’re just a little jealous:) Steven and Jennifer, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day and for trusting us with such an important role. We are so thankful that we have new friends in Goochland!! It was so evident throughout the day that you are so well loved by your family and friends. We wish you the absolute BEST as you start your new life together as husband and wife!!!

    These came out beautiful! Jen and Steven certainly got blessed with a beautiful day and I was so happy to be part of it. Katelyn, having you and your husband there felt more like great friends shooting the big day rather than you being strangers. You both make a great team and it shows in your work! Loved having you guys part of our fun!
