This Alternative Couple had an Epic Backyard Wedding

Carly and Ryan’s backyard wedding was the coolest day to be apart of.

Carly and Ryan’s backyard wedding was absolutely incredible. I don’t think i’ve ever been to a wedding that was more representative of a couple. From the guests to the decorations and tiny details, everything reflected the couple perfectly. This day left me feeling so creative and obsessed with this couples alternative style.

The brides mother contacted me about photographing her wedding about a month prior to the big day. It was super last minute, but i’m so thankful I was available to witness the beginning of their forever. Carly’s sweet mom bought her daughters photography as a gift, and it was the cutest thing.

Carly and Ryan were the kind of people that know what they like and don’t care about what is “normal” for a wedding. These two had a unique colorful green, orange, and yellow color scheme for their wedding. It was so bright and inviting just like them, and I loved everything about it.

One of their friends made their wedding cake and topped it with a skeleton bride and groom cake topper. Everyone was joking about how cute and appropriate it was for the edgy couple. My favorite part about the whole day was Carly’s hair.

The side of Carly’s head was shaved, and she had the coolest little pearl beads attached to her hair. It was so alternative and awesome in every way. She looked like a million bucks in her wedding dress with that hair. There are only so many people that can pull of awesome style like that in a backyard wedding, and Carly and Ryan were definitely those people.

I loved everything about capturing this day, from the family to the decor and the awesome style. I wish Carly and Ryan the best of luck in their marriage, and can’t wait to see where life takes these two!
