Last October Patti Jo and Eric had the sweetest backyard wedding you ever did see. The ceremony and reception took place at their home in southern Maryland, and it was a day full of family, love, and lots of personal touches. Patti Jo DIY-ed the decor herself, and everything was complimented by the beautiful space: the Fall trees that were just starting to change; the raised flower beds scattered with white candles; the wooden swing decorated in paper flowers; the white twinkling lights strung across the deck; and the cozy outdoor fire pit. It was an intimate affair with close family and friends, and it was clear to everyone how much this couple truly loves each other and their family.

The minute I met Patti Jo and Eric, I felt like I had known them forever. They're kind, genuine, and very down-to-earth people, and they have an amazing zest for life. I had the pleasure of meeting their children as well, who happen to possess these same qualities: Eric's son and daughter, Caroline and Michael, and Patti Jo's son, Graham. They were so excited about their parent's marriage, and their joy was contagious. This whole family is super fun and they love to laugh! They also share a rare bond with each other that is one of the strongest I've ever seen.

Words can't describe how special this wedding was and how special this family is. I'm so honored that I got to be a part of it, and I wish them all the best!
