Carie Ann and Johnny

You couldn’t ask for better weather for a backyard ceremony than the September evenings. Carie Ann and Johnny had to reschedule their big day from May of this year to September but there was no doubt that it was the perfect decision.

Carie Ann and Johnny had their ceremony at their family’s property in Charlotte Hall, Md and a reception under a tent right after. Little did they know that the very same place they had the engagement session is where they would get married! (Check out some of the images of their engagement session HERE on my Instagram.) This private ceremony and reception made all of their wedding dreams come true. They had the pleasure of having their children, their family and friends celebrate all evening with them, dancing, singing, riding four wheelers and dirt bikes.

I am so happy, even with COVID in the mix, that they got to have the wedding of their dreams and be able to celebrate the same year they originally planned. I am so happy i was able to capture their day and was able to document it so beautifully, something they will be able to enjoy for a life time!

A September Backyard Southern Maryland Wedding

Britt and Mo

Hats off to the first wedding of the year with this beautiful, low key, intimate ceremony and backyard reception in Deale! Britt and Mo made a decision (like so many other brides this year) to reschedule their big day and due to the COVID restrictions, they decided to make is a more intimate approach!

They found a secluded park right on the Chesapeake Bay in Deale, Maryland to have their ceremony and took their party bus back to Britt’s childhood home where her parents still live to have their reception. The tables and chairs were graciously dropped off by Barnes Farmhouse Tables, Britt and Mo made their signs in their very own at home woodworking shop (check out their work, its incredible!), and they also made all the bouquets BY HAND out of wood shavings!

Unfortunately, due to COVID, Mo’s family wasn’t able to make it, so they joined in via FaceTime and zoom! It was absolutely heart warming to see them all together, dressed up, watching the ceremony. I know its not ideal, but it is really the next best thing! (thank you technology!)

I dearly enjoyed spending time with Britt, Mo and their whole family. They were all so kind and welcoming, it really made me feel like one of the family! I am so happy I could be there to be a part of your day!
