So, I have been meaning to spend a little more time on my blog posts. I would love to give credit to the wonderful makeup artists, florists, Dj’s, videographers and various other vendors that I have the pleasure of working with, but I haven’t made it a habit yet. Bill and Missy were such a wonderful couple! Michael and I enjoyed spending the day with this very entertaining bunch, and I’m so excited to share their special day with you.
Their wedding took place on a Thursday, in Temecula CA. It seems that people are booking weekday weddings more than ever. Lake Oak Meadows, the venue for this gorgeous wedding, said that they booked everyday of the week for 3 weeks straight in September. If you’re planning a wedding on a budget, you might want to keep this in mind!
I am in love with their rings! I know rose gold has made a huge come back in the last few years, but these rings….oh my!
One of my favorite new traditions is the “first look”. I’ve actually done quite a few of these over the past 12 years, but now almost every bride is choosing to incorporate this into her special day. I think First Looks are a wonderful idea, and I encourage my couples to consider having one, especially during the winter months when it gets dark out a lot sooner. I completely understand tradition though, so I’m always ready to capture that first look when the bride and groom first see each other walking down the aisle. (Maybe I should do a separate post about this?)
Hahahaha! I told you this was a fun bunch. They wanted the Trex picture on the left and the picture of them shaming the only single sibling on the right. Apparently this is a traditional photo they take at their weddings, and Missy finally got to join her siblings on the married side 🙂 Too cute!
Not to push the whole “first look” thing too much, but all these photos were taken care of before the ceremony. This gave the couple time to join their reception party even sooner!
