Take a peek at Katie and Drake’s desert backyard wedding photos from their home in New River, Arizona! They got ready in their living room, married in their backyard, and signed their marriage license on their kitchen floor. Most of their wedding was diy or help from wonderful friends, but basically everyone worked really really hard to pull this all together.
They shoveled literal tons of dirt and rocks (like over 12 tons) to get their yard ready for both the ceremony and reception. Drake built the altar and bar, while Katie did all the signs herself.
“Sam they are freaking perfect!!! We love them SO much. Thank you thank you thank you forever and ever! You are so great at what you do!
“Still look through all my wedding pictures like once a week. Best day of my life” – Katie
