Wedding of Tori and David was a dream! They flew us to San Diego and the mom of Tori’s best friend warmly hosted us at her place. We truly felt like a part of the family!
Tori & David chose to have their wedding at an amazing venue called Ethereal Open Air Resort. This venue is literally a photographer’s dream! Lot’s of open space, palms, green fields and themed antique-style rooms for bride and groom to get ready at.
We started our day earlier and went to the venue to scout a bit and get some nice shots of the space. Those are always great photos to have, as they help to tell a full story of the day and show the atmosphere of the place the couple is getting married at.
The day went perfectly. After a very touching first look, we had lots of time to get some fun wedding party pictures and even more for bride & groom’s photos! We scheduled all the portraits for an hour and a half before the sunset and the light was divine at that time of day! It is easy to do when sunset is at 5 pm 🙂
After all the portraits were done they finally tightened the knot at a cute wooden barn with lots of fairy lights and a rustic charm to it. The ceremony was sweet and short, when it was over everyone was eager to start partying! Tori and David really thought their reception through. They had a photobooth, yard games, bar and cozy lounge zone for guest to relax.
I think one of my favorite parts of the day was their friend’and family’s toasts. I felt so much the love and warmth in each word they said. That’s when you know how lucky the couple is by having all those people supporting their journey.
Another awesome thing was when Tori danced with her Grandfather, they rocked the dancefloor! Those memories make me smile every time, I’m so glad I captured it!
We have the privilege of working with the sweetest couples and these two were no exception!
Enjoy the highlights from this wonderful day!
