Emily & Brad : Married : Star Ranch, Corona, CA

As she approached her father’s arm on her way to walk down the aisle, I felt it. A lump in my throat, my eyes welling up with tears. Having known Emily for only a few short months, I thought for certain, my feelings were a fluke so I looked at Brad, and he had the same throat and eye problem. A quick glance at Emily’s mom, and yep, she had it too. We all were overcome with a wave of emotions for such a beautiful girl on that perfect day. A day made with love. Flowers and desserts and decor and cakes, all made by family and friends, weaving themselves into the couples story.

Emily & Brad are the kind of people that dance like no one is watching. They are warm and comfortable. They laugh hysterically and love out loud. They include everyone and make you feel like you’re old friends, even if you’ve just met. It has been such a privilege to know them and capturing their wedding day didn’t feel like work at all. It felt like a dang good party with people I’ve known for years. Thank you both for trusting me and for being such a dream to work with. You are so awesome and I can’t wait for our airplane date!! xoxo
