Private first looks are my favorite! I love the anticipation on their faces. I love that first split second when they turn around and see each other. I love those squeals that the bride lets out that I know she wouldn’t if she were in front of a hundred people. I love watching tears fill a grooms eyes as he takes her in. I love that I get to witness it all first hand. This first look was so fun because the brides walk was long. By the time we got her to the groom I was surprised she hadn’t yelled his name and started sprinting. And the look on both of their faces at the same moment is one I still talk about. Stay tuned for more of this wedding…
When I met Katie and Ben, I knew I had to work with them! Their personalities were exactly what they saw for their wedding – colorful. Katie wanted a wild but refined look throughout the day, and the dream team we pulled together did exactly that. The amazing Lauryl Lane took Katie’s ideas, ran with them and designed florals that blew me away. Katie has been involved with The Girl Scouts almost her whole life and now works with their corporate offices full time, so she wanted to incorporate their famous cookies into her menu. Melody at My Sweet and Saucy made an amazing cake display featuring each cookie dusted with edible gold. Thank you so much to Braedon Photography for these gorgeous images.
This picture totally captured Katie and Ben. Thank you so much guys, for letting me be a part of your special day!
And thank you again to this amazing team of vendors:
I am so excited for next 4th of July!! I know, it’s far off but I get to spend the holiday weekend at one of the most amazing resorts in Southern California. The Grand del Mar in San Diego is beautiful, and one of my 2010 couples is getting married there. They met on the 4th, got engaged on the 4th and they will be married on the 4th. I love it. These pictures barely even do justice to how great the venue is…
I was thrilled when I heard about Ashley and Franco’s wedding ideas. They wanted a small, intimate affair at a private residence in San Juan Capistrano and for guests to truly feel like they were at a big family dinner in Italy. It had such a warm, tuscan feel. So romantic!
