The first time I met Mara + David was on their wedding day! They came all the way from New York City for their wedding day! Since Mara is a Southern California native they decided to hold the wedding in Escondido at Mara's parents' beautiful nursery. What a lovely venue! The nursery (Oasis Water Efficient Gardens) was full of succulents and orange trees, Justin and I had so much fun working with the available surroundings!
Mara + David were such a fun unique couple, every detail about their day was so well thought out and matched Mara + David so well!
I had to start this entry off with my favorite shot of the day! It just felt appropriate!:)
My favorite detail of the day: Mara's bouquet!!! Great job to Robyn from My Fair Flowers for making this and for coordinating the wedding day!
One amazing element that really set the tone for all the guests as they arrived were the conga drummers! I could here the drums throughout the entire nursery and it added such a wonderful energy to the wedding day!
Thank you, THANK YOU to Mara + David for such a RAD day! LOVED every minute of it!! Don't forget to CLICK HERE for their slideshow!
I've been looking forward to Jay + Marissa's wedding for quite some time...especially since it was the first wedding Justin and I shot in 2012, starting our wedding season off with a fantastic day! Luckily for me, I've been able to take a few months off to spend time with my kids, but I'm super excited to be back in the game again!
When Justin and I arrived at the Santa Margarita Ranch we were squealing (well, I was at least, Justin was just happy) with excitement to 1. work with Jay + Marissa on their wedding day and 2. photograph this lovely bride and groom at such an AWESOME venue! We loved it!!
It's only appropriate that Jay had Yo Gabba Gabba! Vans on for his wedding, the Director of Photography for YGG had to represent!:) Plus, Jay + Marissa met on the set of Yo Gabba Gabba, so it made perfect sense to add in this small detail!
My favorite item of the day: Since Jay + Marissa aren't huge fans of dessert they opted to have a cheese wheel "cake" instead, I thought it was brilliant!
A snapshot of us! I'm super lucky and blessed to have my favorite person and best friend shooting with me! I love you Justin Lyon;)
Congratulations to the gorgeous couple! Don't forget to check out Jay + Marissa's slideshow!
