Ashley and Jeff’s backyard wedding was inspired by feminine details and classic elements, making for a lovely and natural celebration. Having your wedding in a familiar place, like a parents’ backyard, can result in such calm and ease, and Erwin Darmali of Apertura perfectly captured these emotions through his lens. A couple of precious flower girls are a wonderful bonus, and these two brought so much joy to the story of Ashley and Jeff’s wedding day.
Ashley and Jeff
Private Residence, Pasadena, California
Simple, girly and natural. The wedding was at my parents home in the backyard which is situated at the edge of the Angeles National Forest. I’ve always been a nature girl and when my parents were looking for a new home during my childhood I saw it in the local newspaper and showed my mom. I’ve grown up in the woods and I wanted the focus to be on my home.
The first look. I was so excited and nervous but once I was with him I felt so calm.
The Couple Recommends:
Chef Ray from Pop Champagne and Dessert Bar did a phenomenal job, everyone told us the food was on point!
Erwin Darmali from Apertura Photography was so professional and made us feel comfortable and never interfered with the day. We couldn’t be happier with the final results, we really feel he captured our special day.
Beautiful Day Bridal was a dream to work with. They worked so hard to get all our dresses and tuxes fitted in time.
