There is so much to love about Aimee and Jarrod. They are incredibly cute, amazingly sincere, hilarious and sarcastic, and OH SO IN LOVE with each other. Photographing their wedding was an absolute joy… and literally, a day at the beach. I started the day out with Aimee and her girls, and man alive did she have the prettiest details ever. I mean, we all know what a sucker I am for hot pink heels.

After a first look at the hotel, we headed off to the beaches of Malibu for some couple portraits and bridal party portraits. Aimee and Jarrod even had the forethought of getting a party bus to haul their bridal party around for pictures. So smart! And I think so worth it to have all of the pictures out of the way prior to the ceremony so all anyone had to worry about was the party!

Thanks to the awesome bridal party for not even blinking an eye when I said, “And now all of you climb out onto those rocks… in heels and slippery rental shoes.” You guys rocked! Then it was onto the party bus and back to the beach club to get these two married! It was a beautiful ceremony, preformed by Jarrod’s brother-in-law. Such a blessing to witness so much love!

How cute is that sign! They carried it down right as Aimee was coming down the aisle as well and the other side reads “Here Comes the Bride” and I LOVE IT! Of course, shortly after the ceremony the light got all crazy pretty so we stole Aimee and Jarrod away for a few more pictures.

Then it was party time! Aimee and Jarrod really had dream team of vendors and everything turned out so beautifully! I loved their flowers and centerpieces. It was dreamy in that room!

Also, I feel like I just take better pictures at weddings with dessert bars… I’m just saying.

Aimee and Jarrod WE LOVE YOU! Thank you so much for having us be a part of your STUNNING wedding. We loved every minute of it, and are so grateful we got to witness it. You guys SO know how to throw a party! Check out more of this delicious wedding in the SLIDESHOW HERE or below!

jenny and brandon {wedding}

The wonderful Jenny and Brandon were married a couple of weeks ago, and OH MY GOSH! It was seriously one of the most fantastic fall weddings ever! It was just SO Jenny and Brandon – laid back, classy and ever so much fun. There were huge smiles on everyone’s faces all day and lots of love for this very, very happy couple. Jenny made one heck of a stunning bride! I mean, SERIOUSLY! She rocked it.

Brandon was a pretty hot groom too!

Because Jenny and Brandon were getting married at sunset they chose to have a first look just prior to the ceremony. The were ADORABLE! Seriously, these are some of my most favorite first look pictures ever.

And a big thanks to Dustin for standing in a soggy ditch to get some super awesome pictures from below.

And then it was time to get these two married! Jenny and Brandon have had a long distance relationship for most of their time together. So it was really cool to have both of their home pastors marry them. There was just such a huge sense of joy through the whole ceremony. It was awesome.

Dustin spent a lot of time in soggy ditches at this wedding. These next two images are among my favorite for the wedding and are all thanks to Dustin and his ninja photo skills. It’s rare to get a truly intimate image of the couple during a ceremony, so I was THRILLED when I saw these beautiful images that Dustin made. Also… he rocked the sun flare! It’s just one more reason for me to love and adore him.

These were taken as Jenny and Brandon were walking away from their ceremony. The light was just amazing and of course I was giddy as a school girl.

Then we took a few minutes for some more couple pictures before heading in to the party.

Then it was off to their party! Guests were invited to guess how many miles they had traveled to see each other over the course of their relationship. And the party was hopping! It was a blast to be there. And Jenny and Brandon REALLY know how to make an entrance.

Jenny and Brandon thank you SO much for having us be part of your wonderful wedding. We are so happy that you guys are FINALLY together for good! We adore you guys! Check out their SLIDESHOW HERE or in the box below for more images from their super fun wedding!
