First Wedding of 2023 in the Books!
Holy moly starting off the 2023 Wedding Season with Lauren and Lee was the best way to go! From our first Zoom, we knew it was going to be a party together. We ended up Zooming and chatting for extra time and it broke my heart but I had to end our chat because I had another meeting to go to, but we could have just talked on for forever!
Lauren and Lee are fun, sassy, goofy, and so clearly madly in love. We did their Engagement Session in the Santa Cruz Redwoods to compliment the same vibes they were going to have at their wedding venue, Barns at Cooper Molera.
And honestly...their day went off without a hitch! Everything according to plan with everyone where they were supposed to be and when. Which, honestly, is a whole miracle in and of itself and the best way to set the standard for the year! All of their friends and family were so excited to be there, everyone's focus was truly on celebrating these two, and just enjoying the day to the fullest!
From a quick Getting Ready session, right into First Look, Couple's Portraits, and Full Wedding Party Portraits all before the Ceremony! Then post-ceremony we did Family Portraits, more Couple's Portraits, and then we hit Cocktail Hour and celebrated all the way through the end of the Reception!
