The absolutely beautiful Lauren xoxo

So here it is, the second post of Kelly and Dani’s gay wedding photos from Highland Ranch in Philo. We left out some really amazing ‘First Glance’ photos and some really cute detail one that we thought you guys would love to check out. Backyard weddings are always so nice and laid back, there’s a homey feeling to them. And they are always so filled with cute little details!

This has got to be my absolute favorite photo of the beautiful couple. Love the emotion and beauty!

Isn’t that such a cute photo of Kelly and Dani on the right? That was right after their first glance! It’s like a little family portrait with Trout with the gorgeous blue skies. : ) Look how cute Trout is following his owners around like a little shadow.

Love, love, love the greenish mold walls of the horse barn in the background. What a nice contrast to the purple dresses! Kelly and Dani look so cute together, don’t you think?

Another beautiful aspect of a backyard ranch wedding – horses and nature! So great!

All the green trees of this backyard wedding makes it such a gorgeous backdrop! And even Trout came along everywhere with us! Who would want to leave him behind anyways? Can you say no to those eyes?

It makes us happy when two people are going with what their hearts tell them to do and not what society wants them to do, especially when you are this happy… who would want to listen to society anyways?

I love this set of two photos of Kelly and Dani, such sweet intimacy! Kelly, you look so gorgeous!

Cute hammock photographs in the backyard! A little quiet moment before the ceremony.

Now here are the details for a real backyard wedding, most of them were not set-up, but already at the ranch. These cute little examples of rustic decor made us feel like we went back in time. A complete visual feast for the eyes. What I love most were the cute peppercorn bouquet details that decorated the ceremony!

How awesome is this? Clay Shooting! All the guys were lined up to try this activity.

It’s so sweet that Kelly and Dani chose Kelly’s sister to be their officiant. We always love it when our couples make important choices for their big day!

Their wedding dresses were so beautiful, I just love how they wore reverse colors and even their bouquets were opposite colors.

Kelly and Dani’s wedding included a handfasting ceremony. Traditional handfasting wedding ceremonies are Celtic wedding rituals. It involves the tying of hands together to symbolize the coming together and remaing tied together.

How Cute, Kelly even did the ‘leg pop.’

Oh my goodness, the cake and catering was so delicious. It was made for Kelly and Dani by their pastry chef friend. It was a yummy flourless cake. Making you hungry yet?


What a wonderful day it surely was. Full of happiness and romance.

The whole weekend was full of fun. Thanks so much Kelly and Dani for including us! : )
