Leslie and I photographed this wedding June 14 2013 and after a long blogging break, it's now time to share this beautiful summer vineyard wedding! For Ashley and Taylor, this was their destination wedding. They live in Texas and most all of their family and friends traveled in from Texas to attend their wedding. To be honest with you, this wedding was probably one of the most influential weddings to our business move here in California. It's actually amazing when I think about this wedding, how we booked it, the connections that we have made from it, and how important it relationships are in this business.
Eli and I planned a trip to the West Coast for some sight seeing, networking, and learning at WPPI ( convention in Vegas for Wedding and Portrait Photographers) We knew we were going to have our friends Chris and Nancy accompany us on this journey. What we didn't know, was that these two were planning a surprise wedding for friends and family. They knew they wanted something beachy and what better place to do it than Southern California in Newport Beach. We had to keep it on the down low, which was a little tough at times, but we made it happen. Chris and Nancy are awesome wedding photographers themselves, and we felt so honored that they asked us to be the ones to document their special day! What a compliment! They got married at Little Corona Beach and it was breathtaking! Shelby Nolan of Green Leaf Designs created the most beautiful bouquet and boutonniere for Chris and Nancy. If you ever need flowers for your wedding/event, be sure to check her out- she is wonderful!! Green Leaf Designs is located in Huntington Beach, California. It was a perfect wedding all around, I don't think we could have asked for better weather that day. Chris and Nancy are a beautiful couple and we wish them many years of happiness together. Cheers to the happy couple!- Leslie
