Jen and Chris planned a gorgeous Rustic Wedding at the Angeles National Golf Club.
The day started with Jen surrounded by all of her bridesmaids at her parents’ house listening to Country Music.
The Bridesmaids wore Team Jen tanks tops while they helped the Bride get ready.Chris loves Superman, so Jen bought him Superman Cufflinks and wore a Superman Garter under her dress with her cowboy boots.
One of my favorite parts of being a Wedding Photographer is getting to know my Brides while they plan their Wedding Day. A few months before the wedding, Jen had posted on Facebook about her, No Guys Allowed Fantasy Football League. I LOVE Fantasy Football and when I commented on her post, she invited me to join. It was so exciting to walk into a room full of bridesmaids and match their Football Team Names with their faces. Towards the end of the night our Commissioner came up to me to remind me to set my lineup in the morning. These ladies are pretty awesome.
Can this flower girl be any more adorable?
Jen chose to do a First Look with her Dad in their backyard.
As the Bridal Party climbed into the limo, the Father of the Bride watched from a distance.While I was photographing the Bride and Bridesmaids, my second photographer, Rhiannon, was hanging out with the guys.
Instead of wearing dress shoes, they all wore matching white Vans.
Once the ladies arrived at the Angeles National Golf Club, it was time for some group pictures.
Their blue and brown bridesmaid dresses looked so cute with their cowboy boots.
Even the adorable little Flower Girl wore boots with her cotton candy dress.Jen, you are seriously stunning!
Jen was tucked into the bridal room right before Chris and the Groomsmen arrived.
Chris’s Mom did a great job of pinning boutonnieres on a big group of guys who were excited to get the party started.The Groomsmen all wore superhero shirts under their suits.
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard while photographing a bridal party!
The guys like football too.
While the Matron of Honor and I were helping Jen with her petticoat, the groom was entertaining himself with the bouquet.
We took a quick golf cart ride over to a bridge for portraits of the Bride and Groom.
The sun was pretty intense all afternoon, but the clouds were amazing!
The beautiful centerpieces had burlap and lace wrapped around mason jars. The daisies and baby’s breath matched perfectly with the rustic theme.
Everyone can dance, but some people take it to a whole new level.
The night ended with Jen and Chris watching their marriage license being signed.
Jen and Chris, I had such an amazing time getting to know you over the past year and having the honor of photographing your wedding. You are both such kind, loving people and I hope your wedding was everything you dreamt it would be. Good luck with your recent move to Arizona and I’ll see you in the Fantasy Football League!
