Wedding at the Santa Lucia Preserve 06.30.2009

As you saw from the preview the other day, I shot another wedding at the amazing Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel Valley, California. It is one of my absolute favorite venues for a wedding and we had another incredible day with a super cool couple. The Wedding Coach, Sanford Marshall and his team put together an extraordinary event and Mary Lois from Loop Event Arts & Interiors provided the florals. It was a gorgeous day and it was easy for me to capture relaxed portraits, amazing details and real moments.


Here's her gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown (shot with my Lens Baby Composer):

Not only was the couple beautiful inside and out, they were very photogenic and made our jobs easier.

This was a first for me... they had a "self adornment table" set up in the woods so everyone could have a boutonniere or corsage. I've never seen that at a wedding before and I've been to a bunch.

The redwood grove is a spectacular place for a wedding ceremony:

I think this is my favorite shot so far (I still haven't gone through all of the photos... so many!). I love this one because it's straight out of the camera, no Photoshop. I love how the light is peaking through the trees, bouncing off the orange, yellow, red and pink flower petals at their feet, and bouncing some colorful light back up into her face and under her arm. Her expression is perfect and she looks so happy and excited to be getting married.

I also love this one and the couple is about to sneak another kiss before being escorted up the aisle by a piper.

A real moment only seconds after coming up the aisle. I'd like to thank the tree on the right for bending perfectly to help frame my image. (the trees on the left did a fine job as well).

The reception inside of this old rustic barn was incredible.

The light pouring through the windows during the first dance was special!

It truly was a very joyous occasion:

After the first course, I snuck them out of the reception for 5 or 6 minutes to catch some tasty light at the end of the day:

A view from just outside of the barn. By the way, the LA AllStars had the crowd rockin' all night long. They were amazing!
