Andrea and John's romantic DIY home wedding was a beautiful and intimate celebration of their love and the love of their family and friends.
Andre and John met at work and built a deep friendship over the years while they were forced to navigate the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic together. And it was during this time that their love began to grow.
Andrea was drawn to John's mix of opposing traits, describing him as daring and adventurous while also being kind and thoughtful. She appreciated how he made her happy and excited and supported her during the most challenging time of her life.
John, in turn, was enamored with Andrea's selflessness and kindness, her incredible talents, smart, articulate, a brilliant writer and musical. He considered her his best friend and was in awe of her ability to make him feel loved and supported. The couple realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together while on vacation in Tulum, Mexico.
John proposed in a romantic and intimate setting, surprising her with a private chef, candles, white flowers and a diamond ring he had picked out during a work trip to NYC.
The couple exchanged vows in a heartfelt ceremony in their backyard, surrounded by close family and friends. Their intimate DIY home wedding was simple and elegant, with homemade floral arrangements and twinkling lights creating a romantic ambiance. The couple's children, Polly, Jake, Millie, Lillian and Lucy, also played a special role in the ceremony.
The reception was a joyous and relaxed affair, with delicious food and drinks, heartfelt speeches and plenty of laughter and dancing. Andrea and John's family and friends were happy to be a part of their special day and support them in building their new family.
Andrea and John's love for each other and their family was the heart of the celebration, and their DIY wedding at home was a beautiful and intimate reflection of that love.
Here are some of my favorites from their romantic DIY home wedding.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!
"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team.
Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
