Holly and Travis: Backyard Wedding

We had the privilege of planning Holly and Travis's wedding this past September. They both lived in California so we collaborated lots over phone and email. They grew up in the Cary/Pittsboro area and actually met in the 6th grade at Cary Academy. They started dating their Junior year of high school and followed each other to Harvard. Such a sweet couple! When you met them you could tell how well suited they really are for each other! 

They decided to get married at their Alma mater (Cary Academy) and have their reception in the backyard of Holly's parent's house (the house that Holly grew up in). It made the wedding super personal and meaningful to both of them! If you have not been, Cary Academy's campus is BEAUTIFUL; great landscaping, beautiful buildings as backdrops, and plenty of parking....just what you want in a venue! They also had several teak benches placed around the campus and we were able to use them for guest seating at the wedding....seriously cute!

Holly's parents had a large back yard and worked tirelessly the year leading up to the big day to make it perfect...and it was gorgeous! The had new sod laid down, planted flowers and shrubs, and even built a new attractive shed to replace their old one. It looked amazing....The day was beautiful and could not have been prettier! Enjoy the pictures!
