Liz and Mike are Married!! | Intimate Backyard Ceremony – Chesapeake, VA

There’s nothing quite as sweet as an intimate backyard wedding ceremony! And what a perfect, sunny May afternoon they had for their big day! We all met at a marriage commisioner’s home in Chespeake and her tree-lined backyard made a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony and their kids made sure we were in the perfect spot.

Congrats, Liz and Mike!! And thank you so much for inviting me to capture these memories for you and your awesome kids!

They chose to include a sand ceremony – even making sure to measure out just the right amount of sand – to show how all six of them would come together to form something new and beautiful.
