As Wilmington natives, there's a very special place in our hearts for weddings in our hometown... being able to get back into our own bed at the end of a long wedding day is kind of my favorite slice of heaven.
Now, add the intimacy and cozy flavor of a small backyard wedding to the hometown location, and you've pretty much made our year. We LOVE photographing the smaller, less formal, more casual and relaxed events that slip under the radar and don't get nearly enough love in wedding magazines and the style blogs.
Rachel and Cody got married in their own backyard, on a quiet little street not too far from the Wilmington Port and the Cape Fear River. A few dozen of their closest friends and families witnessed their short and impossibly emotional ceremony, and the rest of the evening was filled with bluegrass, local craft beer, and North Carolina barbecue*.
*Eastern NC barbecue. Of course.
Location: Wilmington, NC.
