Good Evening! I just got in from a full day with Jennifer & Charlie for their wedding and can I say, what an absolutely incredible way to start off the new year.
Our day started down in Newport Beach on the strand for a wonderful family portrait. We were blessed with a break in the gloomy weather that we were experiencing, which was very different from what Southern California is known for. BUT! We never got that crazy storm that was plastered all over the news.
After we stormed Newport Beach, Jennifer & I headed to the Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton to get ready for the ceremony. Jennifer had the best shoes that we all ooh’d over & she wore her grandmother’s pearls too. The details were beautiful, her hair stunning & her bridesmaids in beautiful blue gowns. It was truly… hmmm… what was the word that described everything today? Oh right. EPIC! One word that rang true for everything today.
As our day was continually blessed with a break in the weather to eventually a magnificent midnight blue sky, we had an original ceremony like you’ve never been to before, followed by some very fun formal & family portraits & then the delicious reception. Their reception was catered by Colette’s Catering and everything was overseen by Duane, who is absolutely one of the best in the industry.
As everyone danced the night away, group portraits were shot from the circular staircase & an encore shoot that we snuck out for – just made for a perfect day. And their perfect day was topped off with a wonderful farewell as they drove off in their convertible surrounded with everyone blowing bubbles down the driveway.
Here are just a few of the near 2,500 photos that I shot today. Thank you for inviting me into your world of fantastic friends & family & I hope you have a blast on your cruise down in Baja – cheers!
