Patrick + Melanie | Intimate Backyard DIY Wedding | Sacramento Elk Grove Photographer

This young and beautiful couple know me through Melanie’s sister. I did her wedding a couple of years ago! I have now done two out of the three sisters weddings and it was just a joy and pleasure to be asked by them again!

It was an intimate ceremony and reception. I did their engagement session just a few days before because Patrick is in the military and has such limited time to be home.

Then, he swept her off her feet away to North Carolina to continue as a military family.

Some of the details were incorporated into the wedding were quite personal and adorable.

Note the shots of the stack of letters that he had written to her over the course of many weeks away from her. Naturally, she collected them and they used it as the “ring pillow” during the ceremony. So awesome.

The ceremony was in the brides parents home and they live right next to a park that we were able to use and get some lovely portraits. Their backyard was the perfect setting for family pictures as well. Great memories were made.

Enjoy! And congrats!
