Taylor and Brandon

These two and their amazing backyard wedding were everything!

Taylor and Brandon were the funnest, sweetest, most genuine couple I’ve met in a while. We met in 2019 for their amazing Mount Rainier engagement session, and they lit up in front of my camera. They decided on a small, backyard wedding in Duvall, surrounded by their closest friends and family, at their grandparents property.

This family home sits on a gorgeous, wooded lot, surrounded completely by trees, ferns, and wildlife. The lake in the back yard can be see by the balcony and the house even has a full service apartment in the detached garage.

Taylor and Brandon got ready for their big day among loved ones, swapping stories and laughing until they cried. Once they got ready, they had their first look in the front yard of the property and had a tearful reunion. Their ceremony took place on the balcony of the main house, overlooking the lake. They had a gorgeous, bohemian arch, and the day was beautiful. During their ceremony, they had their bridal party help them plant a tree, representing the community of their friends and family, that helped build them up as people. They shared tearful vows, and kissed over the rambunctious cheers of their guests!

Then we partied! We spent the evening eating amazing food, listening to toasts, dancing the night away, and taking sunset photos at the lake. It was truly a magical day!
