Intimate Camping Wedding

Private backyard wedding

Troy and Echo Swanzey wanted both an intimate wedding and a large celebration so they found a way to do just that! Their very private wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeous gardens at New Hanover Arboretum where only themselves and immediate family were present. Back at Echo’s family home, on a sprawling piece of land tucked away in the woods, over 100 guests waited to welcome them and celebrate their union! White wedding tents were erected with tables covered in white linens and floral arrangements beneath them.

In the field adjacent to the celebration guests pitched their own colorful camping tents right next to the large bonfire pit that would keep the party going late into the night. They enjoyed cocktails and appetizers while they patiently waited for their hosts to arrive.

There were laughs and cheers as Regal Events DJ introduced the wedding party into the wedding reception to their own special song chosen by the bride and groom. After they were stuffed full of dinner and wedding cake the guests hit the dance floor running. They boogied the night away, celebrating Echo and Troy to the fullest. When the DJ played the last song of the evening the newlyweds were surrounded with a circle of their loved ones swaying to the music.

The magic of Echo and Troy’s lovely wedding was captured on film by Jayway Photography and Peter Potecha Photography and Videography.
