Saturday in the Park: Devon and John at the Prado

Filed under Uncategorized • Written by admin @ 7:08 pm

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Devon and John at the Prado, in Balboa Park. It’s such a beautiful venue for a wedding! It’s a classic San Diego landmark with so many places to shoot and wonderful light everywhere. Devon and John are getting ready to go on a loooong honeymoon, so I’ve been going through all of their images today so they can get a sneak peak before they fly off into the sunset. I’m still working my way through all the shots, but I did grab a large handful of Devon and John, just for them. So, without further ado…

Devon had a private room upstairs to get ready in…I took advantage of the roof : )

Natalie & Aaron, A Fairytale in Fairbanks.

Filed under Recent Work • Written by admin @ 9:54 pm

Wedding & Reception: Private Residence, Fairbanks Ranch.

Flowers: The Floral Palette, Fairbanks Ranch

Coordination: Amorology Weddings

Catering: Coast Catering

First of all, let me apologize for taking so long between blog entries. I’ve been working hard this season, honest! Since last saturday, I’ve been working on images from the wedding of Natalie and Aaron, which was hosted at a private residence in Fairbanks Ranch. I have too many favorite images to post here, so I may have to follow up with their slideshow when I get it done.

Natalie and Aaron enjoyed what was truly a fairytale wedding. The residence itself was amazing, but all of the details really made it into a fairytale. Natalie owns and operates the nearby Floral Palette store in Fairbanks, so naturally she handled her own flowers and assorted details. I could write a whole post about just the details, but I have to fit the wedding in here too. Suffice it to say, the arrangements, the lanterns and the candles everywhere created a magical feeling for all in attendance.

The ceremony went beautifully and the rest of the evening was a huge treat for their guests. Natalie and Aaron passed on some of the usual reception formalities and instead focused on creating a luxurious and relaxed soiree filled with amazing edibles and music. You’ll see what I mean in the photos below.

Let’s start with a few of the Bride:

Barry at Coast Catering ran a display kitchen down in the cabana all evening, turning out one new tasty course after another. Guests happily rotated in and out, sampling every new dish as Barry and staff plated them up. I had the pleasure of sampling the Campanelle Pasta, which was basically an extremely high end version of what you might think of as mac’n'cheese, except with Chantrelle mushrooms, butter nut squash, aged gruyere and chardonnay sauce.

Finally, we did a few fun parting shots later in the evening, here is on of my favorites:
