#DirtyGoatWedding, DIY Backyard Wedding in Mira Loma, California
Updated: Jul 23
I've known Kohl & Taylor for years. Taylor waited for Kohl while he was in the United States Army, and throughout the years, I watched as their love for one another grow stronger and stronger. When they first got engaged, my husband and I pulled an all-nighter to drive out to Arizona. We slept for two hours, met up with them at a random parking lot, and drove them into Sedona where the four of us trekked through the rocky terrain to climb onto Devil's Bridge. Following their Session, I pulled them both to the side and told them I was about 4 weeks pregnant. I offered to give them back their retainer if they didn't feel comfortable with my due date being right around the corner from their wedding and they insisted they trusted and wanted us.
Everything at their wedding was DIY! I loved how everyone they loved came together and made the biggest day of their lives happen. Before putting on her dress, Taylor read a hand-written letter from her soon-to-be-husband.
It made me so happy to see how in love they are. Taylor, with the help of her bridesmaids, changed into her wedding dress, where she did a first-look with her father.
I rode with her dad from where she got ready to the place of the ceremony--her uncle's backyard. On the way over there, I listened while he gushed about his baby girl. Meanwhile, Moe was hanging with the guys.
The Kellys were surrounded by friends and family last November, where they tied the knot at their uncle's home in Mira Loma. As you can see, they're having the time of their lives, truly "being a guest at their own wedding." And us? We're just happy we were able to capture it for them.
