Beautiful Backyard Wedding | Hilary and JD
When I met Hilary and JD for the first time at Cartel Coffee months back they shared their vision with me, it was going to be an intimate wedding in the backyard of their Tempe home. They wanted their day to be totally them and hadn't found a location had the feeling they wanted. Hilary found me on Pinterest, which looking back was meant to be because I can't even find myself on Pinterest!! During our meeting she showed me the Save the Date she had created and I knew this wedding was going to be beautiful!
I visited their home about a month before the big day and they shared with me all the improvements they had made to their backyard in the previous months, where everything was going to be set up and the tables and benches they had hand made with the help of Hilary's parents. It was all incredible. Hilary and JD are clearly a team, sacrificing nights out with friends and small appendages (JD broke a finger) to get the job done! Their preparation for their wedding is a metaphor to marriage that I can't help but point out. Marriage is hard work and commitment, it's putting your partner first with the common goal of making each other happy and creating a healthy foundation for years to come. Already Hilary and JD are starting out strong, I know that they will place the same level of dedication, love and cooperation into their marriage that they placed into their wedding day.
During their vows Hilary quoted someone as saying, "if your lucky, the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back." Hilary and JD are definitely lucky but more than that they've decided to choose each other every time and that's what makes their bond unbreakable!
I am so honored to have been the one to capture Hilary and JD's wedding day, it was a dream to get to see all of their hard work come together and witness their love and excitement of becoming husband and wife! Here are some of my favorite images from the day, I hope you love them as much as I do!
Hilary's Free People dress suited her perfectly and she created her bouquets to perfectly match her wedding day theme! Hilary and JD made the backdrop for their ceremony, stringing it with olive branches for some greenery. Gorgeous!
Hilary's rose gold engagement ring is a stunner! JD did an amazing job picking it out!!
