Aaaah, I’ve been waiting for this wedding for a long time. The bride’s Mom is friends with some of my past brides and their families so when it was time for her daughter Kelly to get married, I was so excited she thought of me. We met over coffee, laughed at planning the day, cried over the thought of having Grandma in photos, and laughed some more. It was a perfect fit. Then I actually met Kelly & Dave when they were in town and again, it was a perfect fit. Thank you for picking me to be your photographer!
This wedding was sweet, natural, real, emotional and full of love. The Fullerton Arboretum was a perfect fit for their celebration. It was so gorgeous. Hot that day, but gorgeous:) I really really really loved so many from this day. I can honestly say that I have never seen a couple more into each other on their wedding day than Kelly and Dave.
This smile is 24/7.
Both of them were almost giddy leading up to the moment they got to finally see each other.
Nothing like a mother-daughter bond.
I loooove it when couples decide to do a “first look” before their ceremony. Not only do we have more (relaxed) time to get gorgeous photos, but you also get to enjoy moments like this. Alone. They had one of the sweetest first looks I’ve done. We had them stand back to back first and then turn around to see each other.
One of my favorites from the day.
Did I mention I had a great second shooter with me? I love shooing with Jeanette Sanchez!! While she was getting this shot of Kelly and her Dad…
I was getting this one…
I swear, Kelly smiled and laughed through most of the ceremony.
Until he got deep into his vows…
Some reception details. Such cute yellow and green colors with brown bag touches.
They did an adorable little choreographed first dance.
