Backyard Wedding in Lafayette

California hills

Blake and Katie were married at Katie’s family home in Lafayette, CA. Their beautiful wedding ceremony had the golden California hills as a backdrop. Their reception had more fireworks than they planned as enthusiastic groomsmen lit some incandescent displays they had bought when asked to buy the sparklers for the sparkler send-off.
