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!

Lil was the most CHILL bride. What bride does their bridesmaid’s hair on THEIR wedding day! She is a wizard braider by the way…

Once the bridal party and bride+groom were ready, we were on our way to the Bakersfield desert for their first look…no peeking!

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!

My brides lately have had the MOST GORGEOUS D.I.Y. weddings, and Diana and Brian’s Vista Ranch and Cellars wedding was no exception. Diana and her friends and family worked countless hours creating centerpieces, florals (yes, her mother created the stunning floral arrangements!), and all the other details in between. My favorite part of this Merced, CA venue was the bridal cottage. It had EVERYTHING a bride could need on her wedding day all in one place including a salon, a kitchen, gorgeous window light, and lots of space for the bridesmaids and family to relax.

Thanks you two, again, for allowing me and my awesome second shooter, Shelby, to document your day!
