Palm Event Center Wedding
Rachel and Blake were TRULY an incredible way to start off our 2013 wedding season. It was a perfect spring day to get married – blue skies, light breeze, perfect temperature. Seriously, more people need to get married in the spring! It was stunning day for this equally stunning couple. It was our first time at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton, California and I loved it! I am so excited to shoot again there later this summer. Rachel looked amazing in her dress, and was surrounded by SUCH a fun group of girls. We had a blast photographing them getting ready for the big day.
Dustin was having a great time with the guys too!
But as it always is, the REAL magic happens when we get the couple together at last! Rachel and Blake had a first look so there was lots of time for pretty pictures in beautiful light. We had a great time with these two!
Then it was time for some “I Do’s” in the Estate Room! SUCH a beautiful place to get married!!
How cute are these two? I mean, seriously! They have so much love for each other, and it just shines through them. I loved photographing them! They had one heck of a party to celebrate their nuptials too. Loads of dancing, great food, touching toasts – it was just one great night!
Super fun right?! I wouldn’t expect anything else from the delightful Rachel and Blake. This wedding was especially different for me as it was just days after I had broken my hand. The first thought I had when I realized my hand was broken was Rachel and Blake’s wedding. How in the world would I manage it? Well, I happen to have Dustin Whitehead – world’s best husband and second shooter, and my dear friend Lisa Bardot of The Goodness didn’t even hesitate when I asked if she would come shoot with me just to make sure I had all my bases covered. I can’t thank you both enough for your love, help and support through what was a pretty difficult 8 weeks. Lisa, I can’t thank you enough for sacrificing one of your rare free weekends to come shoot a wedding with me. I appreciate it more than you know! As you can see from the pictures below, Lisa was quite literally my right hand gal.
Rachel and Blake we are so grateful to have been a part of your beautiful day! Thank you so much for blessing us with the opportunity to witness your love and the start of your marriage! Check out more of their beautiful day in their SLIDESHOW HERE or below.
