An Intimate Backyard Cliff Wedding | Zach & Colleen

Waves gently lapped across the rocks below the window Colleen gazed out of. In just a few short hours, she would stand below that very same window and promise her forever to the only one she wanted to spend it with. Looking back inside, she smiled at the friends who were there to prepare with her and laughed at their silly shenanigans. The lively group spent all morning together, casually putting on their makeup, doing their hair, and creating joyous memories together.

Soon enough, the time had come. Colleen walked down the stairs, linked arms with her parents, and slowly made her way outside the house, around the pool, and to the edge of the cliff to meet her future husband. Surrounded by only their closet friends and family, Colleen and Zach said their vows and sealed their marriage outside of their family’s home that beautiful May afternoon.

When Cassie (Cassie Jones Photography) asked me to assist her with this wedding and told me a bit about it, I couldn’t have been more excited. Beautiful, intimate, and authentically joyful weddings like this one make my heart come alive, and it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of Zach and Colleen’s cliff wedding.
