| Brooke + Brenen | Backyard Washington Wedding |

There is something so personal about backyard weddings. Brooke + Brenen were married in the yard of the bride's childhood home. The groom's grandfather officiated and all the decor was set-up by friends and family. The bride's horse roomed nearby and we took portraits in the garden where the she played as a child. There were many parts of this wedding I loved but the one that stood out most was the father & daughter dance, which included moves inspired by the diner dance scene in Pulp Fiction. And how cute is the bride's cat in a dress?! <3 Every inch of this wedding was special and meaningful to the couple and I was beyond honored to be invited in to document their wedding story. 

This wedding was also featured on Rock 'n Roll Bride.
