Wedding photographer Kristen Marie Tourtillotte often covers the most opulent of celebrations with elaborate cakes, petit fours and detailed decor. Her shoot for Seattle-based couple Michelle and Ryan toned down the common preference for opulence, instead choosing to conduct the ceremony at their home.
Toutillote captured the intimate vows as they took place among family, friends, and thanks to the locale, pets. Pies were baked in the couple's kitchen as mimosas were poured into long flutes. The 829 address proved to be the perfect location, bringing together the guest list with a no-fuss appeal.
Michelle and Ryan's backyard saw the official priest-ordained declarations take place, formally tying one to the other in a familiar setting. The beauty of Tourtillotte's shots encourage viewers to rethink typical unions.
