I've been wanting to feature and/or write about a backyard or home wedding for the longest time.  Intimacy is the main factor when bringing a wedding home and Melyssa and Spencer's nups in North Carolina embody just that.  This celebration with loved ones in the place most cherished was captured by Heather and Jared Photography.  This is what the shooters had to say about this incredible wedding: 'This wedding was a photographers dream! When we stepped foot out of the car and onto the Durren’s property, we were just grinning ear to ear! The rain from the impending Hurricane Joaquin had stopped pouring down and the backyard boho wedding was about to begin! An adorable vintage camper with handmade cocktails, an oyster and pig roast, and amazing food were only the beginning! Each table was set up with rustic details and fresh flowers. 

On top of all that was this beautiful candy bar with all my favorite candy from when I was a kid! POP ROCKS!!! Dot candy! So much goodness!! Together it made for a such a cozy lil’ spot to celebrate Melyssa and Spencer.Let’s talk about Melyssa and Spencer. Oh good gravy. I first met them on the wedding day but instantly felt like I had known them forever. Melyssa’s smile is contagious and Spencer had me cracking up! They are head over heels in love for each other and anyone who is around them can feel it! My favorite part is that they have FUN ADVENTURES together. Y’all know how much we love our adventures, right?! Well, these two decided to take their honeymoon to Ireland BEFORE their wedding and they had a blast! They came home and had a small ceremony and then celebrated BIG TIME with this EPIC backyard reception! Check it out for yourselves! I dare you to try not to smile when scrolling through these. It’s impossible!!!'
