The stars completely aligned for this GORGEOUS private estate wedding! I can not go on enough about the backyard where Lily and Ben were married. It was A…beautifully landscaped and B…large enough for a ceremony on one side of the yard, cocktail hour on the other, and a pool in the middle! Lily and Ben with the help of friends and family pulled off this stunning DIY wedding. Pretty much everything you see was created by them–from the flowers, to the pies, to the centerpieces. I am falling more in love with backyard weddings. They’re so intimate and romantic!

Can you tell Ben’s mom is a photographer???





This is why I love my job. This moment of Ben’s mom, Barb, watching her son watch his bride walk down the aisle makes my heart so happy!
