I love “at home” backyard weddings! Daniela and Jesse were fortunate enough that Jesse’s parents have a big enough backyard to have hosted and I loved that during the toasts they mentioned how many special occasion parties had been held in the backyard. What a treasure of a property (complete with redwoods!) for family and friends.
Daniela was STUNNING in her lace, but sleek gown and had one of the best bride smiles I’ve ever photographed. Jesse was clearly enamored with his bride and looked pretty gorgeous himself. To these two, family and friends were most important as well as plenty of alone time together on their day. They ate inside after the official “seclusion” following their traditional Jewish ceremony so that they could enjoy each other, which I think is a great way to really soak up the day. Then they went out to join the guests for loads of toasts and dancing. What a lovely wedding. Formal and casual at the same time!
