Jacob & Kelly - Salinas Ranch Wedding

Jacob's expression when he saw his bride for the first time is hands down my FAVORITE first look memory of all time.

Alec & Carolyn - Holly Farm Carmel Wedding

I still remember the day Carolyn first texted me photos while she was trying on wedding dresses. I remember the overwhelming sense of love and thoughtfulness I felt when she sent the first care package while I was pregnant (a box full of my favorite treats, #cheezits&sourpatchkids), and the second package right before Phoenix was born (the cutest fox romper and matching burp cloths, #deathbycuteness), and then a box of cookies 2 weeks before her wedding (from her favorite bakery in Soho, #isthisreallife?).

For 18 months, we have emailed back and forth about wedding planning and life. Last weekend, I finally got to hug these guys in REAL LIFE. And their wedding was everything we dreamed it to be - Carolyn's dress was a masterpiece, their families practically adopted me as their own, their vows were beautifully written, their celebration mode was on point, and their love was ridiculously photogenic.

I could blubber on forever about how much I have come to adore this pair. But instead, I invite you to relive their wedding day me with...

P.S. don't miss their dreamy beach engagement photos I posted yesterday!!!

Alec & Carolyn - Carmel Beach Engagement Photos

Carolyn first emailed me in January of 2016. Over the past year and a half, we have exchanged over 100 emails and text messages, she sent me a care package when I was pregnant, and then again when Phoenix was born. But it wasn't until Thursday of last week that I finally got to see this couple face to face. And the reunion was everything I dreamed it would be - complete with slow running from across the wedding venue (mostly because Carolyn's shoes wouldn't allow her to walk any faster).

I know I've said it a million times, but it's true so I'll say it again: I book the most AMAZING couples. I am so blessed to have met these two and captured their wedding just a few short days after we got together for their engagement shoot (so stay tuned for that beautiful-ness).
