Marissa and I (mallory) have known each other for about five years. When she introduced me to Chris, I knew right away he was special to her. In planning their wedding, all she wanted was to have their close friends and family at their home together for a beautiful celebration. Every detail of the day was planned and executed by Chris, Marissa, and their friends and family. It’s one of my favorite backyard weddings to date. There we so many special details and moments and it was an honor for us to be there for such great friends.
Catering: Tap Root
Mobile Bar: Sweet Water Caravan
I could rattle off a list of reasons why Kat & Zak quickly became our favorite couple, or how we have so much in common, or how they chose the most amazing vendor team...but it's really just not even about their wedding or about us. I'd much rather talk about how these two chose to center this celebration around their love of each other and natural, how they chose to focus their weekend around celebrating with their people. It's obvious to see why, too, their family and friends were so happy, genuine and inclusive. We felt like guests the whole weekend.
In their vows, they spoke of family, of hiking, of trials on the trail and hardships they've overcome. They spoke with cracked voices, holding back tears, overwhelmed with joy. They held each other close all day and each portrait we captured was the product of a real moment, never performed.
It was beautiful in every single way and I would shoot this wedding 100 times more if I could.
Meet Kat & Zak!
