Megan & Kevin's - Backyard Wedding
It was a beautiful day on November 1st when Megan and Kevin, as well as their closest friends and family, all joined together for their marriage. Wedding days are always so special and everyone has their own unique experiences; as a photographer I love to capture not only the bride and groom as they share their first hours of being husband and wife with their family and friends, but the joy that is shared amongst everyone attending. Megan looked stunning in her gown; a strapless dress decorated with floral lace and an accent of a champagne colored flower sash – once she was ready to go, fully dressed and made up, Megan found herself overwhelmed and had tears of joy in her eyes.
Their ceremony was outside at Megan's childhood home in Glendale, AZ and had about one hundred and twenty people in attendance; the colors Megan and Kevin had chosen for their wedding day added pops of color here and there. The bright blue could be found as an accent on their wedding cake in the form of a ribbon, all over the candy buffet table that featured delicious sweets such as rock candy, and even on the tables, where guests could find a large ceramic bluebird as well as napkins adorned with bright blue ribbon.
After the ceremony, I headed out with the happy newlyweds and took some photos of them together posing, kissing and laughing; genuinely enjoying their first moments as bride and groom. Following the photos we headed to the reception where a great meal was served outdoors to the bridal party and all of their guests. We took a couple opportunities to grab some photos as the sun set on a wonderful day and to light up the evening, the whole reception area was lit with string bulbs across the makeshift dance floor and wrapped around tree trunks. It was a whimsical and wonderful way to end a perfect day for Megan and Kevin as they danced the night away with their closest friends and family.
