Jillian and Miguel: an intimate and warm celebration
Some of the most beautiful and unique celebrations are intimate ones. A perfect, dream wedding might just be a small cluster of loved ones witnessing vows at the beach at sunset, followed by a candle-lit dinner. Jillian and Miguel didn’t invite hundreds of friends to their wedding, or have a professional florist cover a rented banquet hall with expensive arrangements. They didn’t hire a dj, caterer, or coordinator. They opted for a simpler gathering… and it was lovely.
Kristen (a fellow photographer and friend of the bride) and I met at Jillian’s sister’s house, where the bride would be getting ready for the big day – and where their dinner celebration would be taking place later that evening. This gave us the perfect opportunity to get some fun photos of all of those special details in daylight.
Jillian did a beautiful job making her own bouquet. She even added pearls to her roses.
A few words from the best man as the ceremony begins.
I love the expression on Miguel’s face as he sees his new bride
When Jillian’s sister was married, there was a rainbow. The family was sure it was a sign from their dad, looking down on them on that special day. Jillian also hoped for a rainbow on her wedding day…
Jillian and Miguel – I am so happy that Kristen asked me to help her take your wedding photos. It was a beautiful day, and it was so great to meet you two. And of course, thank you so much for helping me out at the Bridal Bazaar afterwards. You two are so great, and so beautiful – perfect examples of the clients I love to work with most. :-)
