Internet (a.k.a. my one fan, two family members and three friends who read this), I have a confession. I am SO excited to share this lovely Golden Gardens wedding with you, but I am also a little nervous. Maybe you remember Jen from a previous post about her and her amazing photography business. (If you missed it, you can check it out here.) I cannot tell you how much of honor it is to be chosen by one of your peers to photograph their big day. It’s big. Really, big for a chica like me.
J+J… Oh man! What an honor to be trusted to document your gorgeous wedding. It has been such a joy to get to know and work with you. I hope you enjoy, love and cherish these images for a lifetime.

We started the day at The Sorrento Hotel. The hotel was lovely and and offered an amazing skyline for their sweet-as-pie first look.
Next we hopped (more like climbed/jumped) into the hummer limo with the wedding party. The day allowed for a lot of time for wedding photography. A luxury I don’t often get, but certainly could get used to. We were able to spend time at Pike’s Public Market and on the beach at Golden Gardens. With such a hot and sunny day, there was no better place to be than the beach. Excuse the excessive amount of images. I just couldn’t choose. So, I didn’t.
The Ceremony was set in a shady corner of the lawn at Golden Gardens park. Their vows were sweet, meaningful and down right perfect.
The historic bath house at Golden Gardens is absolutely spectacular. It was the perfect setting for J+J’s Tuscan wine themed decor. The team at Blue Ribbon Cooking & Culinary Center did an amazing job with the flowers, the table settings and the delicious food.
