BACKYARD WEDDING / by Kate Penhorwood

Ross & Kassie had a romantic and intimate wedding at their family's residence. I was in love with all of their DIY details especially the wooden accents. They started the day with a first look so they would be free to enjoy time with their guests immediately following the ceremony. I love all the candid shots captured during a first look!

With family and friends present they celebrated their love at the same place where they got engaged. They were married by Ross's friend Nate who was also a groomsmen and the best man! He made the ceremony very personal. Close family & friends joined them in their sweet evening ceremony and then enjoyed Hors d'oeuvres and homemade desserts under a warmly lit canopy. Ross & Kassie shared their first dance to a song Ross personally wrote and recorded for her, which made that moment even more special.

my husband Jon, who is usually my second photographer, was one of the groomsmen, which gave me the opportunity to work with Cordelia. She is super-talented, energetic, & creative.  Her magnetic personality was the perfect addition to the day.
