Kimie Grace Photography – Kent Wedding Photographer / Chico Wedding Photographer
Alyssa and Rick are so adorable together. I have known Alyssa for SOO many years, and so getting the call from her to be her Kent Wedding Photographer was such an honor. It kind of felt like 4th grade when you get passed a note that says “Do you like me, check “yes” or “no”… except for it was more like “so I know it’s a huge long distance, but I can’t imagine anyone else spending the day with me, and I love your work, and… check yes or no”. :)
Alyssa has the sweetest heart, and is one of the most genuinely loving people I know. She gives of herself to anyone in need, and does it with a smile on her face. I knew that whoever ended up with Alyssa would have to be someone who is cut from the same cloth, and I truly believe that Rick is just that! I only met Rick in person a few weeks before their wedding (at Danny & Jasmine’s wedding, actually!), and it was obvious how much he adores that girl.
I love a good backyard wedding, and this one was nothing short of amazing!! So many beautiful touches everywhere in the sprawling backyard that faded into forest. Alyssa and Rick do a TON of sailing every chance they get. So there were tons of sweet little nautical details hidden here and there between all of the gorgeous flowers (all grown by them and their friends!), the adorable wooden picnic tables that they built with the help of friends, and the gorgeous cafe twinkle lights strewn everywhere. Everything was so sweet and romantic, with such a comfortable, family feel.
The wedding ceremony itself backed up to a large foresty area of the backyard, which lent itself to some STUNNING ceremony shots. It then gave us the opportunity to take some stunning, unique portraits following the wedding – SO much fun! Even the neighbor horse (Mr. Ed) came over to the fence to wish them congratulations! :)
