Kristen and Brady

Do you guys remember Athena and Daniel? (hint: harry potter) ^__^   Thanks to them I was able to meet Kristen and Brady and shoot their beautiful wedding. I was blown away by the intricate decorations, thought and love put into this wedding. From the 1000 golden paper cranes folded by her grandmother, to the gorgeous vineyards, everything was picture perfect~!

I felt so blessed to have the opportunity to shoot them, both of them are incredibly kind and easy-going. They told me they loved my pictures, trusted me and pretty much let me make them do anything I wanted. Complete creative freedom, YES! One particular thing that stood out to me (besides the amazing location) was the kindess of the families. Kristen’s mom was just the sweetest thing ever! She kept checking in with Courtney and I to see if we were doing okay, if we ate, if we were warm, we felt exceptionally cared for.

Kristen and Brady, Thanks for letting me drag you around and do as I please! You’ve made me fall in love with SLO all over again. I hope you enjoy this set, I had so many pictures I loved I couldn’t narrow it down!! This is the largest picture blog post I’ve ever posted!!!!(exactly 100 pictures!)  Special thank you to Courtney for making the trip up and 2nd shooting with me. 🙂 🙂

Isn’t her dress stunning?

One of her bridesmaids handmade all of those head pieces, isn’t that sweet?

Dessert bar definitely had me drooling

There was the cutest vintage bike outside! i just had to utilize it for something! 😀

Nothing like a little something to ease the nerves. ;P

The bridesmaids were very good at multitasking 😀

GORGEOUS gardens oh my goodness!!

Even the gift stand was adorably vintage!!

Found these little moss balls and I couldn’t resist!

Yes! all beautified

Kristen is just stunning

Love this shot Courtney got of the gate!

Her grandmother folded 100o golden paper cranes! Friends and family hung them on all the tress in surrounding the ceremony. 

These girls were so fun and sassy!

Kristen bought all her bridesmaid these adorable purple robes!

Freakin awesome “MANCAVE” complete with beer, video games, a flat screen TV and peanuts!

Great fun shot of the guy by Courtney!

Could you ask for a more beautiful ceremony location?

Caught this little cute expression on Kristen’s face as she was slipping the ring on 😀

I absolutely adore this barn

I almost teared up during the father daugter dance too

Athena and Daniel! It was so good to see you two, thank you for being such a springboard for my photography! I love you both.

These ladies really knew how to dance!This sweet girl approached me with the kindest compliments and totally made my night!

Kristen and Brady mentioned the LOVED Athena and Daniel’s long exposure picture, so I knew we just had to do one for them!! ;D I’m so happy with how it came out. Thank you Courtney for drawing the heart a million times! 😀

Ahhhh!!!! Looove!! The venue and all the details looked magical through your lens. Also, those golden craaaanes – I almost teared a bit at the beauty of the images of the cranes in the foreground and the lovely couple kissing amidst the greenery. You’re amazing.
