Julie + Blaine: Wedding, Cuvier Club Ballroom, La Jolla, California

One of the things I love most about working in the wedding industry, is the opportunity to meet so many amazing couples! Julie and Blaine were nothing short of simply amazing to work with. In fact, I'd like to think Julie and I have built a pretty good friendship in the short months that we've known each other. (or maybe we both just really love having a reason to drink wine.)

I love that they selected a Thursday to get married along the La Jolla shores at the Wedding Bowl. Julie was looking her finest after Ankerman Artistry was perfected her hair and makeup. Her daughter made a beautiful Maid of Honor. 

While Blaine and his Best Man were waiting for the bid day to get started, there was one important guest that was rushing to get to San Diego. Julie's mother. She was diagnosed with cancer just a few months prior to the wedding. The doctors said the earliest she could travel was the day of the wedding after her radiation treatment. 

She was delayed, rerouted to Orange County, where an Uber driver was able to get her to the ceremony  just in time for the sun to peek out. And there Julie was...walking down the aisle. 

The ceremony was perfect, as was the reception. I absolutely love these two and I'm praying they have many more beautiful years to come.

Congrats Julie & Blaine!

Special Thanks to the vendors!

Taylor & Joe: Wedding, Darlington House, La Jolla California

Taylor and Joe's wedding adventure started in beautiful La Jolla. Taylor spent the morning with her girls at La Vallencia Hotel - getting pampered and relaxing. They continued their morning over at the Darlington House where Taylor slipped into her beautiful dress. 

About the same time Joe and his guys cracking a few beers next door. Guests trickled in and took their seats at the ceremony site under the blue skies and scattered clouds (perfect since in weeks prior San Diego had quite a bit of rainfall). They said their "I do's" under a perfectly decorated alter thanks to Bluebell Florals

Taylor and Joe left plenty of time for photographs and mingling with friends and family in the courtyard. We even had time to skip down to the beach to capture a few beautiful portraits of just the two of them. 

They danced under the stars until the end of the evening - while the air was cool, the tequila kept everyone toasty warm. Congrats Taylor & Joe!

Natalie + Alex: Wedding, Twin Oaks Garden Estate

These two loved birds helped us kick off the 2017 wedding season with a bang! The Twin Oaks Garden Estate is one of the most beautiful backdrops we've seen for a Southern California wedding. The romantic venue has the perfect touch in every corner allowing brides and grooms to relax and enjoy their big day. 

Natalie and Alex are from the Burbank area and we couldn't have been happier that Shae, the brides's sister and a former bride we photographed, connected us when they were engaged.
