My favorite of Dawn and Andrew’s wedding

I learned that Dawn and Andrew shucked pearls throughout their six year dating relationship and had some of the pearls made into jewelry for their mothers and bridesmaids. How cool is that. Even the pearls Dawn wore were from their relationship. Now you all can go “awwwwww”!

Dawn had mentioned she LOVED the little wishing well, so I had to make sure I got some cute shots with it.

So for the best man’s speech: apparently the groom, Andrew, got lost at Disneyland with no phone and not only left the park, but also walked all the way back to their hotel to get a spare iPad to message his group that he didn’t have his phone and that he was okay. Everyone in the room was busting up laughing!bride and groom dancingbride preparing to throw bouquetGroom getting ready to throw garterwedding couple playing newlywed game with each other's shoes

The couple did a fun “Newly Wed” game where each had one shoe in each hand, he had one of his and one of hers and vis versa. They were asked a question and they were to raise the show to represent him or her. Some of the questions were pretty funny like who was the safest driver (her) but who has the most car accidents (her).  Apparently they weren’t sure who said I love you first.Couple kissing

Just one of many central coast weddings for me, and I can’t wait to work with my other brides!!!! If you’re interested in more wedding photography information, please contact me via “contact page” or visit here.
