Backyard Woodland Wedding | Taylor & Michael

The day started bright and early with family members bundled up to setup outside as Taylor and the girls started their beauty routine inside. At another cabin down the road, Mike and the guys courageously fought through the cold water, probably making jokes to try to forget just how icy it was! But as the sun rose above the pine trees, coats and sweaters were laid aside for the perfect, little woodland wedding.

At their grandparent's mountain cabin, with just their nearest and dearest surrounding them, Taylor and Mike said their vows under the blue, sunny skies. With no activity-packed program to push them along, they were able to just be and enjoy every moment with the ones they loved best! The perfect way to spend each moment of one of the best days of their lives!

The week of the wedding, Taylor found Downton Abbey inspired jewelry in the perfect colors!

The most stunning detail of the day was this gorgeous BHLDN gown! Yes, that would be Anthropologie's wedding line for all those wondering!

Isn't she beautiful?! Just love the red accents from the flowers that Taylor chose from Rocklin Florist!

Along with all the pretty bridesmaids in their ModCloth dresses!

And I can't forget the cute flowergirl and her doggy that was dressed up to match her!

Mike was also looking pretty spiffy!

Complete with bowtie, fox socks, wingtips, and a boutonniere that was purchased on their third date to the movies!

With an antique, heirloom watch tucked in his pocket!

Taylor and Mike chose to do a First Look and see each other as a start to their wedding day! It was such a sweet moment and allowed them to spend the whole day together!

As well as allow for extra-special pictures together! Not only were Taylor and Mike willing to make their way out onto this log for a picture, but it was actually Taylor's idea! Love her!

Just am in awe at how the grandeur of the tall pine trees was a perfect backdrop!

It was so heartwarming to see how everyone there was so close and banded together to celebrate Taylor and Mike! I'm kind of convinced that there's nothing like small, intimate weddings!

While Taylor's and Mike's vows to each other were simple and fun, there was also a beautiful sincerity. And I'm sure a few tears were shed as Mike also vowed to protect and love their cute, little, flowergirl daughter!

As a nod to their very first date, Taylor and Mike chose to treat their guests to a brunch where they could all gather around, visit, and relax.

Guests were told to chose any glass they would like to use and take home as a keepsake!

Whimsical bunches of flowers in silver vases decorated the tables with even an antler or two!

Brunch wasn't complete without various cakes from Rick's Dessert Diner, the location of their second date and engagement shoot, and pies from the famous Machado Orchards!

Taylor and Mike, I was so honored to have been able to spend the day with you! Best wishes for even more wonderful days ahead with your sweet, little family!
