Real Weddings: Kelly + Ivo

:

Kelly and Ivo held their beautiful wedding in Lake Havasu, Arizona, in Ivo’s parents’ backyard. The entire wedding was homemade, from the Kransekake baked by Kelly’s mother, to the ceremony arch built by Ivo, to the lavender lovingly collected by Kelly’s best friend Molly used in all of the centerpieces and bouquets.  The wonderful Leigh Miller captured all of these lovely images.
