I’m loving that many of my couples are choosing to have more intimate events. Which is exactly what Kelly and Sean decided to do!!
Kelly and Sean had a beautiful, simple, and Elegant Backyard wedding. I left this wedding feeling so inspired. To see a couple surrounded by so much love. I witnessed siblings who are truly there for each other. To see parents, not just hug but squeeze their adult children, several times throughout the day. To feel genuine excitement. I was inspired. This is why I document weddings. And I couldn’t have been more honored to have been a part of their story.
Kelly and Sean
As I reflect back on their engagement session, I asked Sean how he proposed. He wrote the story down, for me to include in the blog post… and below follows a very small excerpt, of him explaining how he felt the moment she said yes.
“It is hard to imagine a happier moment than this in my life. But with Kelly at my side, I’m sure this is just the first of many.“
When I read that… my heart just melted. And the best part about the story is this: It’s just the beginning. This is their first chapter. Kelly and Sean’s fairytale doesn’t end here. It begins. They will continue to love each other more with each passing day.
See, that’s the romantic part. It’s not the wedding. (Although this was a very beautiful Simple and Elegant backyard wedding!), It’s the fact they couldn’t wait any longer to get married. It’s the fact that they love each other more today than they did yesterday. It’s the simple fact that they found each other, out of the sea of souls out there. They have each other. Forever.
Simply Elegant Backyard Wedding
Now, this may not have been their original plan, but they totally embraced 2020’s “new normal” and had their sweet celebration. While, there were quite a few loved ones who couldn’t make it, for the obvious reasons, they were there in spirit. (And via a live-stream!)
Kelly and Sean are still looking forward to celebrating with their entire guest list next year as they celebrate with a full party at the Bedford Village Inn! But for now, let’s take a peek at their special day!
Here are a few photos of their Simply Elegant Backyard Wedding!
While the getting ready portion of today wasn’t as elaborate as a full-on wedding day, we still got some beautiful images that document the anticipation and excitement.
The First Look
Kelly and Sean chose to share a quick first look before walking down the aisle. I love first looks, they are always such a special moment.
Seriously, their happiness just radiates.
Simple, Sweet and emotional. It was perfect. In every way.

The Dinner reception!
I was only there to document just a few minutes of the after wedding dinner reception, but for what I saw, it was an absolutely lovely time!
They had a pinata!!!
Seriously how fun is that?!
Congratulations to Sean and Kelly!!
