Backyard Wedding in Fullerton

It’s been a while since I’ve shared content from California but here you go. This wedding was at a private residence, where they transformed a backyard into an outdoor ceremony space, and afterward, a reception space. This is different from many weddings I’ve been to but I really liked how laid back and personal it felt. Weddings come in all shapes and forms, but I think we should all value the experience over trying to cram as much of anything possible into it (e.g. photos, guests, scheduled activities).

The couple was big on DIY, as you can see in their choices for the bouquet and decoration. Their invitations were prints of artwork painted by the bride. I often look for custom details as options for photographing rings.

The night ended with a couple of pyrotechnic displays. The smoke from the mini fireworks does something pretty cool to lights but remember to only set them off in an open, outdoor space!

Morristown Wedding at the Madison Hotel

The bridal prep, ceremony, and reception for this wedding took place at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ. All of the details and an enthusiastic bride came together quite nicely! There were custom bridal pajamas, gold foil invitations, and bouquets that coordinated with bridesmaid dresses. Aside from the details, there was just a whole lot of happy going on in the air and that’s what I love to capture the most. The clouds parted late in the day, lending a gorgeous sunset to beautiful portraits and a fantastic ceremony.

The hall where the ceremony and reception took place was mostly enclosed by windows. If you were among the audience, you got to watch the sun fade to a soft, orange glow before you as the bride and groom exchanged their vows.
