BACKYARD COVID WEDDING by Amy Jordan Photography

Backyard Poolside Wedding turned Micro wedding due to COVID in California

Like so many couples in 2020, this couple had to rethink their wedding day. They replanned the whole day to be in their family’s backyard. Just enough room aside their pool for their intimate California wedding.

With their trusty dog by their side, they vow their lives together. The bride wore a simple yet elegant wedding dress from Lulu’s that she cannot wait to wear again to celebrate in 2021! It was the best compliment to her custom denim jacket! The perfect accessory!

How did the couple meet?

They met in high school and were friends for a few years, but they didn’t start dating until college. They currently live in San Rafael, Ca with their dog, Luna, and cat, Figgy!

Their Proposal Story:

Jordan had just returned from a month-long trip to Mexico and Guatemala with a friend. Tyler suggested a hike to their favorite spot on Mt. Tamalpais, a special place. He proposed on an overlook with a view of the Bay Area.

Their biggest wedding planning frustration?

Our biggest frustration was modifying our plans due to COVID-19. It wasn’t the easiest process to move our date, and when we did, we felt like we still wanted to be married on our original date, with just our closest relatives.

There was one thing that we kept from our original plan and that was our photographer…and we are so glad we did! Amy got the most beautiful shots of the tiniest details (down to the personalized masks for our guests), every emotion during the intimate ceremony, and fun photos feasting on burgers afterward! She was easy to work with, professional, fun, and was the perfect addition to our wedding day.

Their favorite memory from their Intimate California Wedding was for sure sharing their personal vows in front of their parents and siblings!

For our COVID wedding, they wanted simple!

The decor was simple, flowers were limited to a small bouquet and a boutonniere, the bride did my own hair and makeup. The one thing they didn’t want was our guests to worry about taking beautiful photos. That’s where Amy came in! She was flexible and knew how to get everyone doing their jobs to help make the day go smoothly.

Their wedding took place in the backyard of the groom’s childhood home. It was technically the first place they lived together. They had many other special memories. It was perfect for a small ceremony, an eating space, and beautiful views.

Where did she get that fabulous wedding dress?

She got her dress from Lulus, as she didn’t want to wear my more elaborate gown for the backyard ceremony The is saving the dress to wear again at their 2021 celebration! The Lulus gown was simple, comfortable and went perfectly with the new embroidered “Mrs.” denim jacket on top.

Bridght side of the COVID replanned wedding?

The one special thing to the couple was that their rescue dog Luna was in attendance with them. At their original wedding, she wouldn’t have been able to come. But she made the day so much more special and Amy snapped some adorable photos of her!
