Liz and Chris: classic elegance in La Jolla
I was so looking forward to Liz and Chris’ wedding after having had such a great time with them on their engagement shoot. Liz and Chris met at IU where they both were into cycling. I suppose it’s not surprising that a couple who met while doing something fun would also have a fun connection. They play together – they laugh together – they clearly like each other. Their wedding absolutely reflected this, and meeting their guests showed us that both of them come from families who also know how to have a great time. This was truly a great day.
Liz and Chris were married at the beautiful La Jolla Women’s Club. But first, they got ready at a rental and hotel room nearby.
I can’t say enough about how much I love Liz’s dress. She looked so classic. I could only think of Grace Kelly (for those of you familiar, I don’t mean her actual wedding dress, but her overall style). Liz, with her hair pulled back into a low bun, simple and fresh makeup, and one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve seen, looked amazing on her wedding day.
And Chris, in his Officer Dress Blues, didn’t look too bad either.
Liz and Chris decided to capture a ‘first look’ before the ceremony so we could spend a little time taking photos of just the two of them.
… and another first look with her dad
Now off to the beach for a few photos The flowers on the grounds of the La Jolla Women’s club were in full bloom That’s right – the dress had pockets! A perfect place to keep her vows. Wine box ceremony: Liz and Chris both wrote personal notes to each other and placed them in the box with the wine. The idea is that they will enjoy the wine and read them to each other on their first anniversary.
