Oh, how I love backyard weddings. I had one myself a few years ago and there’s something so intimate about having your closest friends and family over to celebrate nuptials on family ground. Katie and Sam had some pretty impressive grounds to celebrate on, too. They were married at Holy Spirit on John’s Island by their local bishop from back home and then held their reception at Katie’s grandparent’s nearby amazing, wooded waterfront property. Several of the property’s trees are registered with the National Register of Historic Trees. It was a hot day for September but there was just enough breeze to blow the thick moss hanging from branches that seemed to stretch on forever. The centerpieces were plucked from the garden and Katie’s cousins pitched in to ice the cupcakes, too.
