John and Christina's "I Do"

The day started at the Botsford's house. Christopher and I pulled up with our coffee and Hector's burritos and chatted about the plans for the day as we waited for the bridal party to arrive. Christina and her maid of honor Carrie pulled up and I was amused to see Christina in the front seat in her sweats, her veil and a big smile. Thus began the day. As Christina got ready, her bridesmaids enjoyed a morning jump on the trampoline and the moms bustled around busily steaming things and checking on the bride to be. When Christina was finally ready to go, she was a brilliant bride! Her dress was perfect for her... that's all... just perfect.

We made our way over to a friend's house to meet John before the ceremony and when we arrived.... I was in AWE! The place was beeeaautiful! Many thanks to the Gamboa's for letting us use the property for a while! It was such a privilege to be included in their day and I felt such joy and peace as John and Christina saw each other for the first time before the ceremony! It was such an intimate and romantic moment... it made me all misty-eyed. 

There's so much I could say about John and Christina, but I'll save you a week and just say this. It was my honor and such a blessing to be your wedding photographer, I couldn't have asked for better friends or better clients than you. You truly are my poster couple! Enjoy... (ps... the slideshow takes a little while to load... please be patient... )
Just a few shoutouts: Thanks to Diane Reichenbach of Whimsey Florals for Christina's perfect flowers, to Annie Botsford for the very professional looking cake, to I Love Tacos for the delicious food, and to the best 2nd shooter in the entire world.... Christopher!
