Seattle Backyard WeddingSeattle, Washington

It took me so long to blog this, but Emily + Billy’s intimate backyard wedding really is one for the books. We shot their first look in the riverbed of Snoqualmie Falls and then headed to their beautiful home near Lake Tapps. They had just purchased the property and thought it would be the perfect place to host their ceremony and reception. Booking another venue was the original plan, but everything they considered was either too expensive or lacked intimacy. So they went with the backyard!

Everyone pitched in to make this day amazing. Emily’s mother designed all the florals, their friends caught the salmon served at dinner, and the wedding party made the hors d’oeuvres. I was floored by everyone’s love and dedication. Using their backyard started as a financial convenience, but now it’s a symbol of their union that they’ll see everyday. I can’t think of a better way to reminisce.
