Beach winter wedding

It's pretty hard to imagine Allyson without a smile on her face, because hers was ear-to-ear the entire wedding day. She and Trevor wed on a pleasantly temperate November afternoon near the beach, with some cute beachy touches at their reception.They even had a masquerade-themed rehearsal dinner the evening beforehand since it was right around Halloween!Venue: Hilton Waterfront Beach ResortCoordination: Simply Sweet WeddingsFloral Design: Flowers by CinaDJ: Elevated PulseCeremony Music: Essence EntertainmentCake: Simply Sweet CakeryHair/MUA: Studio O wedding masqueradebride and groom portrait individualbouquets and boutonnieresWells1086Trevor's reaction seeing Allyson for the first time! Wells3039I love this picture of Allyson with her dad walking down the aisle. You can see the fatherly tenderness in how he's gripping her hand. beach wedding photoWells3097Wells3101Wells3126Wells3129Wells5003Wells1184reception beachy detailsunique guestbook ideaWells5031Wells5105Wells5199Wells5223Wells5226Wells5237 

Huntington Beach Hyatt wedding

I have known Jill since high school, and I can honestly say it was heart-warming to see her so smiley and happy on her wedding day.  I always feel so special photographing the weddings of friends, like I can give them something wonderful on a day that's among the most memorable in their lives.

St. Simon & Jude Catholic ChurchJill & Joselito were wed at Jill's childhood church, Sts. Simon & Jude in Huntington Beach, officiated by Father Isaiah Mary Molano.
