Stephanie and Aaron were married in the backyard of their historic Highland Park home. The location was steeped in memories, it's been in the family for generations. Their event was a true coming together of loved ones. Months prior, everyone worked together to renovate the backyard. When I arrived the morning-of, family and friends were all through the space setting up lights and tables and wine (can't forget booze). The teamwork was a beautiful thing to witness, and it was a true coming together of families!
Steph and Aaron leveled up the new first look tradition with private vows. I absolutely love this idea. So happy to have captured the moment (from afar!).
They were married under a huge tree in the backyard, surrounded by their loved ones. Cocktail hour was under the shade of the biggest cactus I have ever seen, as tall as the house! Aaron's grandma could remember when it was just a tiny, single stalk. We walked the neighborhood streets for our post-ceremomy portrait session.
It was such a beautiful, intimate backyard wedding. I was the only "real" wedding vendor in attendance, and sometimes that's just the way I like it. Such an honor to be a part of their event.
