This weekend was one of the most incredible days we have had this winter. The temps were cool, but not the least bit cold. There wasn’t a cloud to be seen and the sky matched the blue of Amy & Gabe’s wedding colors. If we could custom create a day to match a bride and groom, then last Friday would have been exactly what we would have ordered! Amy and Gabe’s joy was the over all feeling of the day. We kept hearing the word smitten being used to describe them, but it was more than just being smitten. We could see two people who were dedicated to honoring each other and God through their marriage.
We met with Amy and Gabe last summer as they began planning their wedding and just fell in love with how in tune they were to each other. Their connection made for one of the most emotional first looks we have had the pleasure of photographing! Both were unable to keep their tears contained as they waited to turn around and see each other. Those tears quickly turned to laughter and that set the tone for the remainder of their day!
The way blue of the bridesmaid dresses was complimented by soft pink florals that Amy chose for their day created such a lovely romantic feel for their wedding in the gazebo at Reflections at the Buttes. Amy’s bridesmaids kept saying she looks like a princess, but I am sure that everyone there would agree with me that there wasn’t a Disney princess around that could match Amy’s beauty in her Oleg Cassini gown. It was so fitting that their entire family was off to Disneyland after the wedding to vacation together. These two families were meant to come together as one!
Amy and Gabe, I pray that you are enjoying your honeymoon. Enjoy this sneak peek of your special day! We look forward to sharing the rest of the wedding with you soon!
