Gilbert Wedding Photographer | Joe & Kiana

Where do I even start with this one!?  Joe and Kiana's stunning Gilbert backyard wedding was so thoughtfully planned out...with custom wood painted sign's, beautiful lighting and excellent food.  It was a dream to photograph!  It was a wonderful follow up to their river-side engagement session we shot months back.  If everyone decided to be married in the backyard, I'd be totally okay with that!

Ah! The first look...I love these moments.  It's like their faces can't smile big enough.

And the moment he see's the sunburn! 

(They worked tirelessly for months getting the house ready for the wedding, a few final hours in the sun the day before left Kiana with quite the burn)

I loved how Kiana incorporated a beautiful color palette of pinks, purples and blush for her bridesmaids dresses, as opposed to everyone wearing the exact same thing.  

It really gave them the freedom to choose something they love and it all came together picture perfect!

Her reception boasted the best succulent details!

Just incase you've never seen a roasted pig served at wedding, now you have!  (I completely agree with Kiana's expression!)
