So far Erin and I have been immensely fortunate to be a part of many wedding days these short 9 months! Caterers have come and gone, bouquets have been thrown and caught, cakes have been cut and consumed, and ultimately at the end of the day, every wedding is packed up and little evidence is left of what occurred. So what is remembered after such a big day? As artists and visual storytellers, how easy is it to just get enveloped in the details? While those are super important, what do people truly come away from? For someone like me, I love the details. I could spend 20 minutes just photographing a place setting if I wanted to; Erin however is so amazing at capturing emotion. And it's along that line of thought where we find the true surviving aspects of all wedding days; the love, emotion, and impressions from the day! It's these emotions that we strive to freeze in time, so that once all the gifts have been opened and all the "repeaters" have been exchanged, all it could take is one image and *BAM* you're right back on the dance floor of your wedding and reliving the moment!
Cara and Kellen's wedding was gorgeous as it adorned the grounds of the Harveston Lake House. It was set up on a beautiful patch of green with a beautiful lake as their background. It was hot, as Temecula in summer always is, but their guests were shaded beneath umbrellas all anxiously awaiting the marriage of their dear friends. Joined by a couple we've photographed in the past, (Carissa and Jackie) everyone at this wedding were just a blast to be around! With beautiful place settings and yummy food, it truly was a time where everyone could enjoy the day with Cara and Kellen; who made absolutely sure to spend time with their guests (they were such good hosts!).
You probably remember how great this couple was from their engagement session down at the Balboa Fun Zone, but both were styling last weekend and we couldn't have had a better time sharing in their day with them and their families!
We hope these few photos have that *BAM* effect, and that you are transported back to this unforgettable wedding. Congratulations to Cara and Kellen, you both are so wonderful!
