Kaia and Ben got married at Ben’s parent’s house in Gloucester. Backyard weddings are some of my favorite to photograph not just because of the easy-going vibe, but because of the significance of the setting. That can add so much more depth to pictures as time goes on. While Ben got ready at his parent’s house, Kaia had friends come over to hangout at her and Ben’s place not far away. They opted against many of the traditional reception events and just let the evening unfold naturally and organically. It was an elegant wedding with all the comforts of a backyard party. One where all the people most important to you show up.
