Our Wedding Day

AKA one big ol’ excuse to post wedding pictures.

I honestly can’t believe I’m writing this right now. It feels like just a few days ago that we were searching for our venue and now here I am, uploading pictures from our wedding day.

Our photographers, Sanford Creative, were un-effin-believable. Within days after we picked our date, we booked Amanda and Scott Sanford from southern CA (a recommendation from a friend). I fell in love with their style and just had to have them.

TBH I was never the type of girl to “dream” of her wedding. What I did always know, was that one day when it does happen, I had one, ballsy-ass request: it has to be during autumn. Even ballsier: I wanted crisp, autumn weather with beautiful, picturesque foliage and if it was the slightest bit hot or humid, I would probably be miserable. How audacious of me to ask for the one thing I can’t control – the weather.

My wish came true and it ended up being one of the coldest days of the year. I totally asked for it and I’m not complaining.

We stuck it out through photos in 16 degree temps/20 mph winds. I swear I would have given my left pinky to frostbite knowing our pictures would have come out this good.

I was lucky enough that they were able to deal with the frigid temps for literally 6 minutes – just enough time to get some amazing photos. How stunning do they all look?!

  1. […] It’s my all-time favorite color to wear and such a beautiful, rich color. I used to fantasize about not having a white wedding dress and just wearing the most beautiful dark green dress. Obviously, it was just a fantasy, but since I couldn’t wear that on my wedding day, my gorgeous bridesmaids flaunted the shit out of their Vera Wang forest green dresses. […]
