Simply calling Roxy & Rodney's fantastic summer event a "backyard wedding" does not even begin to do it justice. First of all, how many people can claim a backyard that looks like it came straight out of a glossy brochure for a tropical resort? The amount of care and personality that went into planning and decorating is also totally evident when you look through Chris Sosa Photography's charming photos of the day. From the hand-picked antique furniture to the giant Jenga game, Roxy & Rodney really know how to put together a fun, unique, and stylish event! I could go on and on about the gorgeous floral centerpieces and the menu that is quite literally making my mouth water, but instead I'll just let the images speak for themselves. Enjoy the gallery, and keep reading below to here more about the happy couple and their inspiration for this joyous day.
From the photographer...
Rodney & Roxy met at a bible study and credit their faith with bringing them together and strengthening their relationship. They’re funny, sweet, and generous people that love to host parties for their friends, so celebrating their wedding in their backyard made perfect sense. They spent weeks shopping for antique furniture, finding the perfect decor accents and deciding on their favorite cupcake flavors to share with their closest family and friends. Rodney’s daughter Brianna plays a huge role in their relationship as well. Roxy and Bri get along so well that you’d think they’ve been family from the start! As the evening went on, it started to rain just as their reception was about to kick-off. After waiting about two minutes for the rain to stop, everyone just shrugged their shoulders and danced in the rain for the rest of the night!
