After we were done shooting our group and couple shots we headed over to meet our guests at the reception.
As we entered the supper club our amazing jazz band, Lapis Luna, performed “Beyond the Sea,” and I lead my beautiful Wife to the dance floor.
On October 17th, 2010, Joey and I were married in Corona Del Mar, California. I’m still conjuring up the words to give this incredible day justice. It was above and beyond what I had dreamed and totally different in every way from what I had expected. I have never in my entire life felt more loved and supported. Its all such a whirlwind in hindsight and it went by all too quickly, but the memories are fantastic and I look forward to sharing them with you in detail. I’m waiting on the bulk of my photographs to arrive but for now enjoy this preview.
When you get married in the country, you got to go a little country with your photo shoot. Luckily, an orchard, an old dairy, and a sculpture artist’s collection of shiny abodes made it all possible. Oh, and 10 smoking hot ladies in heels & boots.
For now, enjoy the mini sneak peek–more details on the big day and all the fun it entailed shortly!
We put our ceremony together ourselves and it was probably the biggest challenge of the planning. My dad is a minister, and we wanted him to do the ceremony, so the decision about an officiant was easy. Our challenge was figuring out what our ceremony was supposed to be about – we were already married, and we didn’t want to do a ceremony that pretended as if this was the moment of us getting married. We wanted instead to create a ceremony that celebrated our existing marriage, created a new community by bringing together our two families, and asked for the blessings, respect, and support of our marriage by our family and friends. We wanted those intentions to be really clear, and my dad made it so easy to work with him to put together something that was right for the occasion.
The forecast all day called for thunderstorms, but there was not a drop of rain and the weather was perfect. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect sunset for our ceremony!
