2020 was the YEAR of the intimate backyard wedding and this one did not disappoint. This day was GORGEOUS! The weather was a perfect 80 degrees, sunny with a slight breeze and love was definitely in the air. Luke and Haley, tied the knot at Haley’s childhood home. Surrounded by orchards and under a grove of eucalyptus tree these two said “I do” in front of all their family and friends.
I always tell my couples that I’ve never seen a perfect wedding day. While this one was pretty close what you don’t see is that our original location for sunset photos was a field behind the house. This field would have been perfect for sunset BUT it caught on fire about 3 hours before the ceremony (tell me you live in Northern California, without telling me you live in Northern California). Luckily, I had these leftover smoke bombs from a styled shoot that made up for the lack of a view. Honestly, plan B of riding skateboards and playing around with the smoke bombs was even more fun than the perfect sunset in a field. The night ended with the most delicious cake and some wild dance floor moments. Luke and Haley were sent off to their honeymoon by their cheering friends and family.
Intimate backyard weddings can be challenging to pull off. They take a lot of effort in advance to make things perfect. Choosing the right vendors to execute your vision for the day is key to success.
