We drove two hours after finishing the previous wedding and set up our tent by lantern light to arrive in time for the most wonderful weekend.
A camping adventure.
In the park where they met, so long ago.
Promises by the ocean.
The salt sea breeze of the warm summer night lingering, as they danced under the stars.
From their engagement shoot alone, I knew their wedding was going to be one I’d never forget. Their relationship is pure love, beauty and a lot of being silly. The amount of time and dedication that went into each and every detail of this wedding is over whelming, everything was personal, everything was perfect.
Some say it takes a village to raise a child, I think it takes a village to make a wedding THIS magical to happen. My heart, head and camera were happy after this wonderful day.
Who says the groomsmen have to pose awkwardly before the ceremony, why not play Mario kart?
These signs were hand made by Amy’s mother! She’s seriously on wheels, they were beautiful!
Just calming the nerves.
If you’re wondering it’s hibiscus flowers and raspberries in champagne, and yes it was delicious.
Amy’s grandfather restores antique toys, candy machines oh, and fire trucks!
I believe this is where I said “you’re velociraptors”
This wedding took time. Patience. Love. It was hand-made with nurture and care by family and friends of the newlyweds. It was Friday the 13th. Things that could go wrong, did.
But Tommy and Val shrugged it all off. Love is lucky you see.
They were there to celebrate their love, their marriage, their child – and the laughter never stopped the whole day.
Get creative, step outside the norm. Get offbeat. Let’s get wild, let’s have fun – at the end of the day all that matters is the fun you’ve had with friends and family. At the end of the day it’s you and him/you and her. Be yourself. Be true to you. Be true to each other.
I had a lot of fun shooting this one. (Selena, get your tissues out)
You fell in love with Duncan + Amanda during their engagement shoot, now I bring back their adorable and cute love for their wedding. We had a warm, sunny and fun day celebrating their devotion to each other (and cinco de mayo too!)
Their “All You Need is Love” theme popped its head in throughout the festivities, which I adored. Your wedding is your day, get personal with it.
Thank you for having Conrad and I. xo
