Beautiful summer, backyard wedding. It was truly straight out of an Anthropologie magazine. This sitting area, for guests to lounge and chat was one of Darcy’s favorite spots that she designed. And it was perfect for portraits. Every detail involved color and was perfectly placed. It was such a beautiful, summer day and the love these two have for each other was almost tangible. So many of their friends and family members came to celebrate them and were involved in making the day come together, you could really tell how loved they are by so many!
