Kellie & Cody - An Eden Oaks Ranch Wedding in Valley Center, CA
When Noami Lowe, mother of 4, Professor at CSUSM and Palomar College, Brooks Institute Photography Graduate, and Superhuman Extraordinaire, asked if I would be interested in 2nd shooting a wedding with her, I nearly screamed! Second shooting had become a major goal of mine for this year, as I was preparing to start taking on weddings of my own next year! Eden Oaks Ranch, nestled in the hills of Valley Center, provided a beautiful backdrop for this adorable couple, and the owners of the venue are a dream to work with! I used to moonlight as a small-time wedding planner, and worked with a major wedding planner for day-of-coordination, and never have I met more helpful, courteous and genuinely kind venue owners!
That prior experience with weddings served me well as I quickly found myself pinning boutonnieres on all the groomsmen once again, (they never seem to know how to do this themselves)! Speaking of flowers, Kellie + Cody chose the most beautiful arrangements for the ceremony aisle which then doubled as tabletop centerpieces! They also really wanted a first look before the ceremony, which we as photographers LOVE, and they got some adorable moments together without having to take too much time away from cocktail hour for formal photos. The sooner they could join the party the better, and boy do they and their group of awesome friends know how to party - dance moves galore from this bunch! Needless to say, I had a blast taking and editing these images, and I am honored to have just been added to the preferred vendor list over at Eden Oaks Ranch...hopefully I'll be shooting there again soon!
