Brenda and Antonio – Maderas Golf Club

The day could not have been more beautiful when Dad and I pulled up to the clubhouse where Brenda and her bridesmaids were getting ready, at Maderas Golf Club.  The location and weather worked so perfectly with Brenda’s choice of soft pink details, creating a romantic and elegant mood that lasted throughout the whole event.

Brenda’s bridesmaids gifts of personalized robes came in handy while we were shooting all of the activity of the morning.  Are these ladies beautiful or what?!


Brenda and Antonio decided to see each other before the ceremony, which means we were able to capture these fun images of the big reveal.  They were so excited and happy!

The wedding ceremony was at Brenda’s family’s church, San Rafael Parish in Rancho Bernardo.  The church architecture was amazing.

Next, we returned to Maderas to get some photos of the happy couple on the golf course as the sun started to move into the ‘golden hour’.

So romantic.

Meanwhile, their guests enjoyed cocktail hour with a beautiful view.  As you can see, the bridal party is having a great time!

Inside the ballroom, each place setting included a thank you note from the newlyweds.

The big surprise of the evening was the elaborate candy bar.  Brenda and Antonio had no idea that Brenda’s aunt had arranged for the table as a surprise gift.  They absolutely loved it!  (what’s not to love?)  The candy table was beautifully assembled and maintained by Sherrill Kinsler of Charming Expressions.

What a happy first dance.  I think they really like each other *wink*

The DJ’s were outstanding – keeping the celebration going all night long.  This is what the dance floor looked like right before the last dance!

And a happy exit!

Brenda and Antonio – you two are amazing.  I already knew we’d have a good time and that the photos of the two of you would be beautiful when I met Brenda before the wedding, but then getting to know the both of you on your big day, and seeing how sweet the two of you are to each other, just made me enjoy our day with you even more.  Thank you for being such a fantastic couple to work with and for asking us to be part of your celebration.

Your day could not have been more beautiful, segueing into a party that I’m sure your guests will remember as being one of the best they’ve seen!  :-)  Congratulations on such a great day!
