Mariah and Derrick's backyard celebration was one of the most beautiful outdoor weddings I've ever photographed. Aside from the couple being so sweet, they were also so stunning and made every photo look like something from a wedding magazine. The day began with the ladies in the most beautiful airbnb, where I photographed the dress and other getting ready photos, while my second photographer, Amanda, photographed the guys back at the house. From there, Mariah decided she wanted to do a first look with her in-laws, before climbing into a horse-drawn carriage with her mother and brothers to make their way to the ceremony location. The LOCATION. Simply put, it was beautiful. The ceremony took place at the very top of a hill in an open field overlooking the rolling hills and mountains of Allegany State Park. The day continued into a cozy tented reception in the couple's backyard.
