De Luna Ranch Wedding: Chuy & Lupe and Rosario & Jose

Two brides. Two grooms.  One day! What a unique experience it was for me to be a part of this wedding!  Hearing that there were going to be two couples getting married at the same ceremony definitely perked my ears up when I first heard from Chuy.  I had never shot anything like it before, but I was up for the challenge and I'm so glad I said yes!  Rosario, Jose, Chuy and Lupe were ALL such wonderful people to work with and their wedding was just so much fun!   Rosy and Lupe, two very creative sisters, put a special touch on every part of this wedding. Details, details, details!  From the floral ladders,  to the handmade signs, to the personalized Instagram photo booth...there was so much to capture!  The ceremony was held at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and the giant fiesta continued on at De Luna Ranch up in Brentwood, CA.  The venue hosted two live bands, including an all women mariachi band who sounded amazing! The next band kept the party going strong with lots of enthusiasm and crowd participation.  Once I was done shooting I was tempted to stay and party myself!  :-P  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am so happy they chose me to photograph such a lovely day.  Getting to capture the love of not just one couple, but two was such a treat.  Congratulations to you both!!

Monica and Brian's Wedding at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club

October has nearly come and gone and I'm still catching my breath!  It's been a busy month, but so good at the same time!  I've been able to shoot mini sessions, engagements and weddings, all in just these past few weeks!  I've gotten a bit behind on blogging (I admit!) but it just means I have so many more fun blog posts around the corner with fresh pictures to show you soon :-)  For sneak peaks and more up-to-date news, please Like my Facebook page by visiting the link on the right! To start off the month, I had the pleasure of shooting Brian and Monica's lovely wedding at Cinnabar Golf Club with my dear friend Danielle, from Danielle Gillett Photography.  Often times I go into weddings not knowing what to expect from the day because really, every wedding is different and you can never quite predict what each one will hold.  I've had my fair share of stressful weddings, but this one ran so smoothly and peacefully that I actually had a chance to breathe and truly enjoy myself!  I originally met Monica and Brian last year at a wedding fair and I knew we clicked right away.  They are nothing but friendly and easy going and it was a joy to work with them.  I really hope to do many more shoots in the future with them and wish them many blessings in their new marriage!

Handmade Wedding Details

DIY weddings are so popular these days and I for one am a huge fan!  Nothing puts a unique spin on your wedding day like handmade details spread throughout your venue.  It not only makes your wedding stand out from the rest, it also gives the bride and groom an opportunity to showcase their personalities and interests in one of the most meaningful days in their lives!  Plus, weddings are not a cheap event and anything you find where you do-it-yourself will save you lots of money.

For instance, at this Stern Grove wedding in San Francisco, the bride chose simple flower arrangements and was able to pull together an array of various wildflowers with some baby's breath in a mason jar and make a lovely centerpiece.  Next, save some money and combine some elements such as the wedding favors and seating cards.  All the wedding favors were homemade vanilla extract and also served as the escort card telling each guest where they were seated.  For a fun spin, the bride gave each child a beautiful paper crown as their favor and also added a tag with their table number as well.  One of the most clever crafts of the day were the adorable felt flags waiting on each chair at the ceremony.  There was a variety of sayings scattered throughout, including the couple's wedding date, and the guests waved them as the newlyweds walked down the aisle.  Lots of cute details and some simple ways to save money.  That combination is always a win in my book.  Please feel free to Pin this image if you like what you see!

Marcus and Michelle's Wedding at Green Gables Estate

It finally arrived!  My big sister's wedding day!  It was gorgeous and everything came together so well.  There were many last minute details, but it all turned out beautifully! She and Marcus were married at Green Gables Wedding Estate in San Marcos, CA and it was such a cool venue.  The bridal suite was lovely, the ceremony area was darling and the reception area was huge. It was such a perfect setting for a wedding and my stunning sister fit right in! Her peach and white details were so elegant and her wedding dress fit her to a tee.  She was definitely a picturesque, blushing bride.

I've been waiting for this day for a long time and I just felt so elated to have been a part of it. I did my part as a maid of honor to tend to all Michelle's needs, but I'm not gonna lie, it was hard to juggle it all.  Not that I was stressed, but the wedding photographer in me wanted to take pictures of EVERYTHING, but it just wasn't possible.  I did as much as I could, but my main focus was Michelle and taking care of her to make sure she had an amazing day!  My biggest regret was not getting more photos of her and her new husband.  I eventually had to relinquish my desire to shoot every picture possible and let the official wedding photographers do their job.  That's what they were there for anyway, right?!  With the help my fiancè, Nick, we were actually able to practice our skills at recording video with my Canon 5d Mark II. I don't claim to be a videographer, but it sure was fun capturing a different side of things. Now we will all have the memories to cherish in video form!  I could ramble on and on about the wedding day and how amazing my sister is and this and that.... but I'm sure you'd like to see the photos that I WAS able to take!  Here's one of the very rare times I actually show up in a couple photos (thanks to some willing friends who manned my camera for a few shots).  See if you can spot me ;-)  

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Blackshire!!
