Wedding: Ann & Craig

When Ann sent me a message a few weeks before her wedding asking if I would come and take pictures of her guests as they arrived, I was ecstatic! After doing an engagement session with Ann & Craig, I couldn't pass up getting to be at the wedding of such an amazing couple. And then I begged her to let me stay and photograph their ceremony. And since she's so amazing she let me. Once again, thank you Ann for trusting me so much!

Ann & Craig got married at Villa de Sol d'Oro, a beautiful venue nestled in the hills of Sierra Madre. I've seen so many pictures of this beautiful venue which made me so excited to shoot there. And then I got there and saw how amazing they had it set up. In a word: Beautiful. No detail was left out.

I loved this message left in the guestbook...
"Who knew there was an 'app' for love! I guess you found it!"

Guests

Nothing makes me feel better the someone coming up to me and telling me that they read my blog or saw my pictures. Craig's Aunt made my day by coming up to me and telling me how much she loved my work.

Ann... you looked AMAZING!

Have you seen the movie 27 Dresses? Do you remember the part where she says while the bride is walking down the aisle she always looks to see the grooms face?

That's my new favorite part of weddings.

The cutest part of the ceremony was the exchange of the rings. At the end they each told each other to "never take it off". Now why didn't I think of that? ;)

What incredible details! Who was the main photog? My favorite shot is the one of the 4 people under the tree. You nailed the exposure!

Thanks Jenna! I had one of those moments where I looked back at the picture and almost jumped up and down because it looked perfect SOOC!

And Palos Studios was the main photog.
