Charming Homegrown Suffolk Wedding

Inspired by her parents' backyard for their special day, Vanessa and Jimmy dreamed of a homegrown, comfortable rustic wedding. And when that backyard is on a farm overlooking the Nansemond River, you can't get a more beautiful setting for a simple wedding outdoors with close friends and family!

With the open space, string lights, fried oysters, and barbecue, Vanessa and Jimmy's day set the tone right for a stress-free shindig in Suffolk, especially when captured by Photoladylove and orchestrated by McBride Events. To keep with the spirit of closeness, their wedding party consisted of just the bride's sister and the groom's father… accompanied by the sweetest flowergirl nieces ever.

No matter how big or small, a wedding infused with the couple's personalities is just the right kind.
