Stay Home, Get Married

Kyle and Sabre live with their family on a beautiful piece of land in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. What better placed to get married than in their own backyard? A backyard wedding is perfect, especially when your backyard looks like this.

Dee and Kris have known Kyle for a lifetime. Kris used to babysit Kyle and his brother BJ. So fun to get to photograph such a big day too.

Gianna Zydonis with Wild and Lovely Events transformed their land into the backyard wedding venue of their dreams. The haybale seating and the wood accents were the prefect mix of rustic and chic.

The couple chopped their own wood for this aisle separator. Children ran throughout the yard dressed in their cowboy hats and boots. The feel of the day; laid back and fun.

Get Married! Have Fun!

Even though the sky was smoky from the wildfires, the day was beautiful and it was finally happening.

Three images of the wedding processional of ring bearer, groom trying not to cry, and bride being escorted by her father down the aisle.

Kyle was so emotional seeing Sabre walking toward him down the aisle. This was the moment they wanted when they chose not to do a modern first look and do a more traditional look across the aisle.

Their flower girl was kept happy with endless lollipops. The ring bearer, did a great job keeping the rings safe until he handed them to his dad.
