Simple + Chic Backyard Wedding

We adore the relaxed, casual vibe of Meredith and Graham’s summer backyard wedding! With a ceremony at the intimate Smithfield Church and a reception held at Graham’s family’s New York country home just one street away, these two brought all of the comforts of home into their celebration. Meredith is radiant in a demure Lela Rose gown, and we love that although she wore a chic chignon for the ceremony, she let her hair down (literally and figuratively) for the outdoor reception! Bridesmaids in simple white dresses, simple centerpieces of daisies and greenery topiaries, and pretty runners with pops of blue complement the garden setting under the tent. After a family style dinner by , guests danced the night away to John Ragusa Music. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful images from Charlie Juliet!

  1. Love the relaxed vibe and timeless simplicity of this beautiful wedding and outdoor reception. It seemed to sincerely capture the essence of what a wedding really is all about (two people committed in love) without the pomp and fuss that can sometimes creep into such “big” occasions.

  2. Amzing photography. “Charlie Juliet” truly captured moments in time that will bee treasured over time as beautiful memories. I love the way she displayed her photographs with such variety. I can tell she loves what she does and cares about her clients.

  3. the pictures are beautiful. I love the relaxed feel of the photography that matches the feeling of the wedding. I especially enjoyed the black and white photography. CJ does a wonderful job of capturing the emotion of the celebration.

  7. The photos are absolutely STUNNING! The bride and her attendants are all beautiful and the setting could not be more perfect. Though this is a “casual backyard wedding” the pictures reflect “simple elegance” and wonderful memories!!! Great Job!!!!
