The wedding season has finally wound down, and I have the time to start blogging again. The other night I made a list of the shoots I need to blog, and came up with TEN, just off of the top of my head. Wow. So, you all know what I will be doing the next few weeks.
Finally, after a long hiatus, I bring you the wedding of Dan and Ashley!
Ashley and Dan had some really cute decorating ideas. I loved how they used actual limes to match with the lime green in the color theme.
Ashley and Dan’s wedding was coordinated by Wish Wonder Dream wedding planners, who were some of the most thorough and enjoyable coordinators with whom I have had the pleasure to work. Check them out if you’re looking for a planner.
Dan and Ashley even left little gifts on the place settings.
Ashley and Dan were married at The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu. The venue has space on the sand for beachfront weddings, a nice inside bar, and an event room with plenty of space for eating and dancing.
After the guests had some cocktail time in the bar, we all headed out onto the beach to watch Dan and Ashley get married.
They chose not to see each other before the ceremony, and they were a LITTLE bit excited to see each other when Ashley came down the aisle.
It was just getting close to sunset as the ceremony began.
And finally, they’re all legal and allowed to kiss.
Just as Ashley and Dan were pronounced husband and wife, their ushers threw beach balls out into the audience, so the crowd could toss them around as they came back down the aisle together.
Mr. and Mrs.
Love this. I have a small red shoe obsession. Luckily Ashley seems to have one, also.
Once it was too cold and dark to take any additional photos, we joined the guests inside for dinner and dancing.
I believe this may have been taken during Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”. Although, they did look this happy throughout most of the evening.
And, they’re off to the honeymoon!
Thank you both for having me photograph such a special evening. It was an honor.
