Where do we begin!!
This intimate wedding is something straight out of a fairytale book!
Their venue was located in the heart of Hillcrest, San Diego, Ca.
They rented an Airbnb for their special day! Who would have thought to book their venue through Airbnb.... It's GENIUS! This proves that simple CAN be more! They were able to save money but still have everything they could have ever dreamed of. Even all of their flowers were DIY! You can't even tell they are all silk florals! They were beautiful!
When we first arrived to the house we couldn't believe our eyes to what was in front of us. As photographers, our creativity was sparked and we were so excited to start the day! We entered this master piece of a house and large wooden staircase stood before us. We noticed everything had a vintage feel with lots of windows that gave gorgeous natural light ( our favorite). It so happens to be that this house was built in 1925! We can only imagine how many memories have taken place in a house full of character.
Brady and Courtney decided to only have their closest family members attend their celebration, which only consisted of 10 guests. We have never experienced such an intimate ceremony, It was so beautiful to be a part of. As their guests were seated and the procession began, talented musicians(< found here), serenaded the atmosphere.
One of our favorite moments from their ceremony was the bottle of wine Brady gifted to his Bride. A little back story about this gesture... They bought a bottle of wine together,
that they would save and open on their wedding day. Unfortunately, that bottle of wine broke so Brady decided to do something special for Courtney. During the ceremony he presented her with a NEW bottle of wine that they would open on their One year anniversary. HOW SWEET is that!
After the ceremony, we got to steal the Newlyweds for pictures throughout the house. Did I mention the windows with natural light?!?! I think I did!
We captured them in candid, embracing each other as now Husband and Wife. During our time with them they told us that this was their FIRST time taking professional photos! We couldn't believe that... can you? They nailed it and knew exactly what to do!
**Tip** When you and your other half, get lost in each other and have FUN, your love, chemistry and personalities, naturally shines through our camera lens! Don't be nervous just be yourself! Candids are THE BEST!
The ended their evening with a sit down dinner prepared by a private Chef. Let me tell you.... so many delicious aromas filled the house and everything Chef Joshua prepared looked unbelievable! We would love to hire him for future events!
Lets just say, so far this has been one of our favorite weddings we have been a part of. Especially because we are beginning to change our style of editing and the moody tones created such a romantic and vintage vibe.
Thank you for letting us capture your Wedding Day. We are so grateful for you!
