Typically, when you say the phrase "at-home wedding," you imagine it'll be at the couple's home, or possibly their parents' place. In Carmen & Erik's case, they co-opted Carmen's sister's beautiful apartment in downtown Greensboro as the perfect location to host their intimate wedding luncheon celebration. 

There are so many different ways to make an event intimate: keep it small, fill it with personal touches, craft every aspect of it with love. Carmen & Erik did all of these! They kept the guest list to just their parents and Carmen's sisters; their personalized ceremony was sweet and the space filled with photos from throughout their four-year relationship; and they or their family members DIY'd every imaginable aspect of their day! Self-described foodies and adventurous home cooks, Carmen and Erik created all the food items on their menu themselves (save the beautiful little cake, provided by the awesome Favor Desserts in Durham!). Carmen's sister, who also opened her home to host, crafted all the flower arrangements and engineered all the decor. Music? DIY. Hair and makeup? DIY. It was beautiful, personal, and perfect. (Even in spite of the incessant rain—thanks a lot, January...)

Carmen & Erik, thank you both so much for trusting me to photograph your sweet celebration. Family, friends, and fans, wish these two every marital happiness available in the comments below and, on your way there, check out a selection of my favorites from their day!
