A Prado wedding inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement for Susan & Matt

Susan is kind and loving and multi faceted and a perfect fit for Matt. These two care so deeply about their community and making sure they are adding to it. I loved getting to know them and can’t wait to photograph their friends wedding next month. I had such a great time on our engagement session in the snow and every planning meeting we had. I learned about the Arts and Crafts movement and about Susan and Matt. I already miss hanging out and talking all things weddings. Take a look at this gorgeous day.

A Del Mar Powerhouse Wedding for Angie and Nils

Oh these two. Weddings are magic. I wish I could post their vows right here for all of you. I wish I could have memorized every word. I was so struck by the idea that last year I didn't know these two, and yet I had the opportunity to hear their love story and be there for the beautiful merging of their families. I love how open to magic and wonder Angie and Nihls are. They live on separate continents and some how this Norwegian woodsy man fell for this American southern belle. I want to be a part of a life that wonderful. Between them they have 5 kids who feel the magic too. Now it's just the 7 of them.

I wasn't at all surprised to see the thoughtful touch of personalized menus. Angie and Nihls are exceptional people. Every menu was personalized with a guest's name. Doesn't that make you want to throw a party and create something as personal as this for your loved ones? What a way to make your crew feel welcome. As if drinking cocktails by the sea on a warm day wasn’t welcoming enough. I’m full of gratitude for getting to be a part of it all.
