A little throwback to this lovely backyard wedding from 2012 that somehow evaded the blog until now. Kirk and Jess are friends of ours, and they were married in her parents’ yard on day that started out pretty wet. They were prepared for anything though. Umbrellas helped us with bridal party photos, and tents covered the guests for the ceremony, and a bigger tent held the reception and dinner. Kirk and Jess did a “first look”, seeing each other and completing most of the formal photos before the ceremony. They talked about this experience in the article in Beautiful Beginnings Summer/Fall 2013 edition.
