Briana & David – Soft Elegance at Maderas Golf Club

Ah, what a lovely couple! We met the beautiful Briana and her mother last year at the Bridal Bazaar and we hit it off immediately. I was then thrilled when she followed to let us know that she selected us as her photographers!

Briana and David were married at one of our favorite venues, Maderas Golf Club, right here in Poway. We absolutely love working at Maderas. We love that the site is full of so many beautiful spots to take photos, and the gorgeous view of the hillside is the perfect backdrop for a sunset wedding and cocktail hour. We also love working with Katy the coordinator – so laid back, yet always on her game.

I’m now a huge fan of Briana and David’s florist, Breathtaking Bridal Bouquets. The bouquets and arrangements combined succulents with some of the prettiest roses I think I’ve seen. The color combination fit in so well with the sunset ceremony, and the combination of textures was the perfect hard/soft – a photographer’s dream really.

Wait till you see her in it!!

The adorable sign was a gift from a bridesmaid – love it!

Cavity inducing sweetness!

And here she is in her dress. What a beautiful bride!

Briana was surrounded by bridesmaids who weren’t just beautiful, but also super great to work with. They are all such great friends that Briana couldn’t pick a maid of honor, so the four of them instead lined up by height. :-)

Dad about to give away is little girl.

The ring bearer (and his mommy) prepare for their big moment.

Ah – here’s the view! And with the cherry blossoms just coming into bloom… perfection.

Briana and David – I know we said it in person, but thank you once again for asking us to photograph this truly beautiful day. You two, and your loved ones, were so much fun to work with. And your wedding was one of the most lovely I’ve seen (I think I see a new sample album in our future!)

We wish for your marriage as much happiness and exquisite beauty as you experienced on your big day – and we hope to take many more beautiful photos of you in the future! :-)
