Hi there! Welcome to the  blog, a journal about my life, work and some other pretty things!

Hi, I'm kylie.

Intimate Backyard Wedding | Elk Grove, CA | Letty + Thomas

May 4, 2019

The Big Decision

What to wear, what to wear? That is a question on MOST people’s minds before the big first date. Do I go fancy and show off what I got? Or do I go more low key to show off my laid back side? Or… does this sweater make it look like I’m not trying too hard when in fact I’m going out of my mind trying so hard??? And of course, your hair never wants to cooperate on such a day…ever! Whatever you do choose, a lot of time and thought goes into the big decision.

Great minds (in love), think alike

Letty and Thomas were no exception to this whirlwind of thoughts that we have all had, especially since this was a blind date. A previous classmate of Thomas and current work mate of Letty set these two up. They had no idea that this first decision they made, something as seemingly simple as picking out an outfit, was going to be the first step to their life together. When they first saw each other, they had one obvious thing in common. They both wore red! And this was just the first spark.

Happily Ever After…

Flash forward to the perfect California afternoon for a beautiful backyard wedding. Many months of prep went into to making Thomas’ childhood home a perfect venue for friends and family to witness these two becoming one. Every detail was so personal. Letty’s dress was actually made from her mother’s wedding dress (insert happy tears over here)! But my absolute FAVORITE was their cake topper (scroll down to see) that Thomas made himself. The cake topper is Thomas, Letty and each of their dogs! If you have followed me for some time, you will know I LOVE dogs! I have two of my own and they are my everything. I knew Letty and Thomas were a perfect #kyliecomptoncouple, but this just solidified it!

A Note to the Happy Couple

Letty and Thomas, thank you so much for inducting me into your family for the day. You are two of the sweetest people and your love is so pure. Anyone who looks at you can tell. Always look at each other the way you did on your special day. There is nothing like it and I was honored to capture it. Have fun is Disney World and don’t forget to send me pics so I can live vicariously through you!

Until next time,



How cute is this first look?

I am sooooo happy these two took a few minutes during dinner for some amazing Golden Hour Portraits! Just look at these GORGEOUS blooms!

Check out this amazing dessert display!

Here is the cake topper that Thomas made himself! Such an adorable new family of 4.

Look at all these tasty pies from Zest Fresh Pastry in Woodland, CA! (insert a billion heart eye emojis) And yes, they tasted as good as they look!

And a cake from Ruboolu’s Bakery is always a hit!
