I was lucky enough to photograph this stunning backyard Phoenix wedding this past spring. This day took the phrase “backyard wedding” to a new level. This gorgeous wedding took place at the groom’s parents’ home in central Phoenix. There is something really special and intimate about backyard weddings when it is a location important to the couple. The whole family came together to put on this beautiful day, down to the tiniest of details.
The dress, the rings, the florals, the customized sign – this day went all out with some gorgeous details. Everywhere you looked, there were personalized thought-out little bits and I loved it.
This ceremony gave everyone some misty eyes, I tell you. The couple wrote custom vows to one another, and it was the perfect setting to celebrate their relationship. They also shared one of the most ~dramatic~ first kisses I’ve seen. I am always here for the drama.
Bride and Groom
These two also put their full trust in me when I said I had a crazy idea for some bride and groom photos. They were looking for a slight change of scene from the house for some photos, but we didn’t have a lot of room in the schedule to go too far. Luckily I had recently driven by this random park nearby, and it was absolutely BLOOMING with wildflowers. March in Phoenix is a pretty good time to get married if I say so myself. So these two let me do some rearranging of the schedule and take them over to this park for some alone time. It was so worth it.
We headed back to the house for their intimate backyard reception. We had speeches, cake, and ended the night with their first dance, accompanied by some sparklers. A backyard Phoenix wedding to remember, for sure.
