When it comes to choosing the perfect location, you could just call yourself lucky when two gorgeous Hollywood hills backyards are available. Especially when one is your childhood home with the treehouse you grew up playing in.
Adam and Deborah had the dream scenario. They had already decided they wanted to get married in the backyard, a big full lawn with an incredible old tree holding Deb’s childhood treehouse. When word traveled that the neighbors would be out of town the weekend of the wedding, they jumped on the opportunity. They asked the neighbors if they could use the backyard for their reception, and they said yes!!
The neighbor’s backyard was equally as gorgeous surrounded by overgrown flower hedges and big oak trees. it was a literal secret garden and Deborah used that to her advantage when planning out the reception space. Tea lights in the trees, butterflies hanging from branches and limbs, large brass lanterns in the corners, and beautiful filagree china for the place settings. It was whimsical and full of secret garden vibes the entire evening.
It was an incredible night filled with constant celebration and laughter. Easily my favorite wedding all year…well….so far anyway.

A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
