Wedding in Carmel with Julie Cheshire

Wedding

The other week I shot a wedding with the lovely Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography down in Carmel at Mission Ranch. As you will see, Mission Ranch is just beautiful.

Loren got ready in the honeymoon cottage. It was an adorable little house just large enough for all of the girls to get gussied up. Loren is simply beautiful and I love, love, love her hairstyle.



The flower girl was cute as a button. That face in the lower left was when she saw Loren’s dress for the first time. She looked like a little princess herself.


The ceremony site was down a path and over a bridge with a spectacular and private view of a field and the bay in the distance. If it hadn’t been so warm and lovely, it really would have reminded me of Scotland. And there were even sheep out there! They started getting vocal during the formals before the ceremony. I just thought it was the coolest thing.



Loren and Michael had blue skies and huge puffy clouds just for them.


The ceremony was presided over by a family friend which made it all the more special and personal. The six bridesmaids carried white roses and green hydrangea; Loren’s bouquet consisted of green orchids and white roses.


Since we had taken care of most of the formals before the ceremony, we pulled Loren and Michael aside for just a few shots near the fence before heading off to their cocktail hour.


The details were perfect and everything seemed to fit so well. It was a beautiful wedding in the country with just the right amount of fancy details and relaxed atmosphere.


The couple danced their first song to Alison Krauss’ “When You Say Nothing At All”.


The party really got going after that. There was some great music and the guests were so much fun.


Thanks so much, Loren & Michael. All the best!

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all
Alison Krauss, When You Say Nothing At All

Laura and Ed’s wedding day couldn’t have gone more smoothly. The weather was perfect and it was just gorgeous at the William Penn Inn out in Montgomery County. The ladies in guava gathered in one of the suites as Laura got ready. Her Maggie Sottero wedding gown was a vision! It was about the third dress she tried on. I can totally understand why she’d stop looking after this! I loved the millions of billowing layers of tulle.The bracelet she wore was borrowed from her mother and she had her new initials monogramed in blue onto an old lace handkerchief.We grabbed a few of Ed’s formals before the ceremony as the guests started to arr ...
