Lauren & Dustin’s wedding day was simply magical. If you could imagine going to a wedding from a Nicholas Sparks novel, this is what it would be like. The beautiful event was adorned with soft romantic hues, whimsical mismatched bridesmaid dresses, lush spring florals, and a warm glow that acted as a veil over every perfect moment! Lauren wore spring flowers in her hair and the dreamiest A-line gown, covered with floral appliques, that swayed in the warm ocean breeze. Dustin’s suit brought out the colors in his eyes and perfectly matched his colorful wedding band! When their eyes met at the sweetest first look, it was pure magic. From that moment on, every part of their day was nothing short of perfection, and they were the embodiment of calm.
After their beautiful ceremony with touching vows, their pup made an appearance for some tail-wagging, face-licking photos before we snuck away to the hilltop overlooking the central coast. The romantic photos were what dreams are made of, and as a photographer, I will be forever grateful they entrusted me to document their wedding. The rest of the starlit evening was filled with stone fire pizzas and curated cocktails beneath a blanket of twinkle lights.
The photos of this day don’t even do it justice- but I must say it’s pretty darn close. 😉
