An Elegant Backyard Wedding Celebration in Carmel Valley

If you desire a more relaxed and intimate wedding experience, I strongly recommend considering a backyard wedding celebration. Rebecca and Jay did just that, but their backyard celebration was anything but ordinary. Theirs was a perfect fusion of elegance, timelessness, and simplicity, proving that you can create a beautiful and unforgettable day without going overboard on every intricate detail.


Jay and Rebecca’s story began in the late ’90s when they were friends and co-workers. They observed each other’s journey through various relationships until, one day, they discovered what they had been seeking was right in front of them all along. They have been together for 11 years, during which they welcomed a precious baby girl named Eadie. She had the opportunity to be part of their wedding day. Everything fell into place seamlessly. They were filled with joy as they celebrated their special day alongside their nearest and dearest family members.

I genuinely admired the feel of this backyard wedding. It’s common to imagine a quickly arranged event when thinking of a backyard wedding, but this celebration exceeded those expectations. It was carefully thought out and beautifully executed. The elegant table decor, floral arrangements, the stunning tree serving as the ceremony backdrop, abundant greenery throughout the yard, and the classic Northern California home all contributed to the charm. There’s so much more to highlight, but I’ll let the visuals speak for themselves in showcasing the beauty of their special day.
