Talia and Payton their backyard wedding at the end of May. A fun way to kick off LGBTQ+ Pride month, being married!
I’m gonna preface this blog with a reasoning behind all the use of “LGBTQ+.” Google SEO is very specific, in order to show up in searches I have to use my key phrase a few times. I chose to make my key phrase include “LGBTQ+” because I want all couples in love to be able to find vendors who welcome and support their love. Maybe you found this blog on Google. And if so, welcome! Alright, moving on.
Their LGBTQ+ backyard wedding was held at a family member’s house. Talia and Payton shared a first look on the entry stairs.
Talia and Payton wanted to practice their vows and necklace exchange before the ceremony. It ended up being a really sweet private vow reading. And the necklaces proved to be too difficult to switch back for the ceremony, so they just treated this as their necklace exchange.
They chose to exchange necklaces with their star signs instead of rings.
It’s not photos with Talia if there isn’t swinging involved. Talia loves a swing set, and I’m so happy their backyard wedding had one for them to use.
Payton made Talia a cape for her wedding outfit. Safe to say we had a lot of fun playing with it for photos.
The LGBTQ+ backyard wedding ceremony was short, sweet and to the point. Everyone was already outside since we’d just finished family photos. So rather than making it a production of walking down the aisle, they just asked everyone to sit down so they could begin.
Their friend, and former boss, performed the ceremony. It’s always so special when a friend is the officiant. It makes the ceremony so much more personal to the couple.
One of Talia and Payton’s favorite places to go is Parkville Coffee. The owner created their very own special coffee blend in celebration of their wedding!
They love Parkville Coffee so much that we stopped there for part of their engagement photo session.
You might be questioning what you’re seeing in these photos, but I assure you that yes Talia did get her hair cut pretty much immediately after their ceremony was over. She’d been growing her hair out for the wedding, but has never enjoyed having long hair. Lucky for her, her new wife went to cosmetology school and is trained in cutting hair.
