Alicia + Joey: full of life, character, and color! I already expected their wedding to be just this after the few hours we spent with them while shooting their engagement session. August 21st was an awesome day for a wedding, and it just so happened that it was the only day in the middle of the summer that it rained in San Diego. The old saying of "rain means good luck on your wedding day" must be true because Alicia + Joey are two of a kind!ajblog001.jpgajblog002.jpgajblog003.jpgajblog004.jpgMy favorite shot of the day!
I think this image perfectly displays Joey and his awesome personality, he had me giggling all day long:)

ajblog018.jpgMy favorite item of the day, Alicia's feathered bouquet complete with broach.
ajblog020.jpgAfter the official ceremony took place at the LDS San Diego Temple, Alicia + Joey had a ring ceremony at the reception venue.

Happy marriage to Alicia + Joey, so excited for you both! Be sure to check out their slideshow! Also last, but certainly not least, a huge thank you to Jason + Emily of Roger Ruth Photography for helping me out that day!

You saw their engagement session, now experience the wedding of Danah + Ahmad. The lovely couple was married on August 15th at The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. If we had only two words to describe this wedding it would be "simply classic". With white as their only wedding color, Danah's simple white dress, and Ahmad's classic black suit, it was truly a breath of fresh air. Danah's dress will definitely go down as one of the top ten wedding dresses we've ever laid eyes on, and Ahmad's black suit was bold and timeless!
adwed002.jpgadwed003.jpgMy favorite shot of the day! Danah was a gorgeous bride!
adwed004.jpgadwed005.jpgadwed006.jpgadwed007.jpgadwed008.jpgadwed009.jpgadwed010.jpgadwed011.jpgadwed012.jpgadwed013.jpgadwed014.jpgadwed015.jpgadwed016.jpgadwed017.jpgadwed018.jpgadwed019.jpgSecond favorite shot of the day!
adwed020.jpgadwed021.jpgThe reception, again, was simply classic. There was white flowers and white linen everywhere. Only Danah + Ahmad's closest friends and family were in attendance. 
adwed022.jpgadwed023.jpgMy favorite "detail" of the day (well, I feel bad calling a person a detail, but this person really added to the overall mood of the day), the wedding singer! He was an amazing vocalist that sounded just like Nat King Cole and did a great impersonation of Louis Armstrong.
As with all of our clients, we feel super blessed to have been a part of such an amazing experience and moment in time. Congratulations to Danah + Ahmad! Click here for their online slideshow!

*A quick thank you to Kary H. Events for beautifully organizing Danah + Ahmad's wedding day!

They say you're the best in the industry for a reason.. these images are the reason. I genuinely never stop being amazed and awed by the art that you produce. If I ever get married, I hope you'll be there.
