Candace & Anthony’s Wedding Day at Catalina View Gardens was the perfect mix of traditional, modern, elegant and rustic. You are probably wondering how on earth could a wedding be all of those things? Scroll through the moments we captured for the proof!
The outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean was breathtaking but couldn’t hold a candle to the beautiful bride Candace as she walked the aisle to Anthony. She was spectacularly beautiful for the couples “First Look”. What a moment as Anthony laid eyes on his bride for the first time. Her dress and smile sparkled with brilliance. When Anthony first saw Candace… I would say as a professional wedding photographer it was one of the biggest smiles I’ve seen! That’s not taking anything away from the other grooms of the nearly thousand weddings we’ve shot but Anthony sure does shine when he see’s Candace. Anthony also did a great job of holding back the tears… we are pretty sure we saw one fall. It happens to the best Anthony!
As wedding photographers it’s pretty obvious that we are there to capture the moments in the wedding but it’s also really an honor for us as to be invited to the moments right after the ceremony. These often quiet, calm, magical moments are just for the couple to be together, stop and breath for a few minutes. The couple stepped away from the festivities and into the olive grove just for some time to be together and take in the moment. Together they made their way to the vineyard, where it was again a privilege to be part of this quiet moment for the two as they looked into each others eyes in between rows of grape vines. Some of our favorite photos are captured in these “non-traditional” moments.
Anthony is a true gentleman always attentive to Candace, and Candace dotes over Anthony. The friends and family were a delight, such a fun group!
It’s really fun to get to know our clients… so many have become very close friends over the years. As we get to spend more time with our clients we get to see surprising and unique sides of our couples. Candace & Anthony are no different. They are so sweet together. You can’t help but notice this as you scroll through the photos and watch their wedding day video we put together. But when the sun went down and the music turned up these two cut loose! It’s such an amazing experience to watch love turn to joy and celebration. What a fitting celebration to a perfect day!
The whole crew danced as the sun set over the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The stars came out and the night of celebration commenced! And what a blast it was. This crew knows how to celebrate.
