This year has been a crazy one, from the rain that seemed it was never going to end to the Indian Summer we are having currently. It seems Mother Nature has no idea what to do, which I know has wreaked havoc on the nerves of all my couples. I have been fortunate to have very little rain at all of my weddings so far this year- Andrew and Kaela’s wedding day was no different.
My assistant went to take pictures of the guys getting ready, and although I was not there the pictures tell an interesting story- I think they had too much fun! The guys had some tequila shots as they got ready, they put on their custom jackets that had their gaming names sowed into them and then took goofy photos that make no sense to me but I am sure the groom had a great time explaining them to the bride lol. I arrived as Kaela had the finishing touches on her make up, we all anxiously watched the skies sprinkle with some good luck showers hoping it was going to pass. Her girls helped her into her dress, while the little flower girl watched a real life princess come to life, each parent came in to see their little girl and these are a few of my favorite photos from the day as the emotions ran high (I might have cried too)
They we wed on her parents huge property, where they have a dog kennel and breed dogs which meant I GOT TO SNUGGLE PUPPIES!!!! They made this amazing archway leading to the ceremony from old doors and little sentiments form each others childhood. It was by far one of the prettiest ceremony spots to date, the rain cleared up and equally beautiful words spoken during the vows. With such a stunning a large property there were endless possibilities for backdrops to capture these most amazing photos, and of course a super fun bridal party helps! My favorite part of every wedding day is when I steal the couple for a few private minutes away from all the guests. These produce the best raw, in the moment, fresh off the high of making their love official memories that last a lifetime. So, we went to the bottom of the property and just let Andrew and Kaela just be them.- I swoon over these photos.
Little unknown fact is Andrew’s roots are from Mexico and a full table of his family came from to celebrate these two becoming one, AND they prepared a musical set “Stand By Me”, It was pretty awesome! The dance floor was amazing, so full of character and some hilarious photos that perfectly capture the fun that this wedding truly was! All in all Andrew and Kalea’s wedding was perfection, I hope you love looking through these photos as much as I loved taking them. To see all the photos from the day click here.
Congrats you two, thank you for having me capture your beautiful day!
