This is the story of Brooke & Steven & the day of their backyard BoHo wedding in Northern California.
They met in Australia while on set filming a Sci-Fi television series about dinosaurs.
He, from down under. Her, Los Angeles.
Their relationship spent on adventures here & there.
Now, the story of their love continues as they wed in her grandparents’ backyard.
Wild deer & baby turkey run free through the open space.
Guests lining the yard with tents in order to finish the night of celebrating by sleeping under the stars.
They are free spirits at their core, & their day perfectly represented that.
Surrounded by her grandmother’s art, she stepped into her dress & tied her sneaker’s laces.
She then waited in her grandmothers art studio as guests arrived.
Caring much more about loved ones gathering & sharing their love than putting on a perfectly scheduled production.
Running free in wild grass, playing rock-paper-scissors, & watching the clouds roll by.
Playing yard games, eating street tacos, laughing around a campfire, & twinkling lights all strung up in the trees.
Brooke & Steven. This is their day. This is their love.
“I promise to keep your heart safe & your soul wild.
Show you the light when it’s getting dark & guide you through the storm.
I promise to run when you skip & jump when you hop.
Cause i’m all in, I’m in this with you. I love you.”
– Her promises to him
“I promise to encourage & inspire you.
To stand by you in the good times & the bad.
If you fall, I fall with you.
I will forever be there to make you laugh.
To lift you up & help you chase your dreams.
I love you.”
– His promises to her
