Intimate Backyard Wedding in Palo Alto, CA

An intimate backyard wedding in Palo Alto that reminds me a lot of my engagement party held for my (now) husband and I in my childhood home.  It was a beautiful hot summer day, lanterns hung high, white hydrangeas, white tents and passed hors d’oeuvres.  It was a memorable upscale backyard party, that should become a yearly tradition! In any event, this wedding was also held at the bride’s childhood home making the venue meaningful and significant. Also, there is no venue rental fee which is a win-win for everyone.

Photographer’s Comments: “I am really excited to share this lovely backyard wedding that took place in California.  The bride got ready in her childhood bedroom. It was just too sweet! The bride’s mom did most of the flower arrangements and the reception was held underneath a beautiful tent in the family’s backyard. Their closest family and friends surrounded them with love and it  was such an incredible day.”
