San Diego Wedding Photographer: Graham + Lauren, Wedding – Part II

Here’s the “full monty” for the fabulous Russell Wedding. If you missed it, check out Part I with my favorite B&W’s here! ๐Ÿ™‚ Prepare yourself…this might be the longest single blog post I’ve ever done, but it’s soooo worth it!

Graham and Lauren were truly the sweetest couple…both had such amazing style, personality and presence. Their sweetness reminded me of Allie & Noah on The Notebook movie…and I can’t wait to see their marriage in 10 years! They seem to have genuine fun with everything. Loved them!


The Bridal Suite was in an original 1800’s schoolhouse and it was AMAZING! A perfect fit to Lauren & Graham’s vintage style.

Hand-stamped handkerchiefs for the ladies…Love this detail!

Loved this painting in the Bridal Suite…a perfect fit above all the lovely bouquets made by Jerri Disney. ๐Ÿ™‚

Each bouquet was wrapped in vintage lace and sealed with an antique brooch. Now you see why I could have been there shooting for DAYS!

The bride’s sister and MOH…perfectly sweet AND beautiful!

Her Badgley Mischka blush petal heels were to die for! I had a hard time limiting the number of shots to put in of them…swoooon!

The GORGEOUSNESS that is Lauren. *sigh*

Handmade boutonnieres with antique keys, vintage lace and memento scrabble pieces? Yes please!

Graham seriously has FIVE brothers…his mom is a SAINT! They were all so sweet, respectful and HILARIOUS!

See what I mean?…sweet and hilarious! Lauren and he are going to have SUCH a fun marriage! ๐Ÿ™‚

One of Graham’s younger brothers sang the sweetest rendition of โ€œI Wanna Grow Old With Youโ€ย during the ceremony…MELTED ME!

Vintage Chevrolets…shoot, vintage cars in general…make me a very happy photographer! This ’57 Bel Air was no exception!

Love this one above…

These shots with the pink balloon are some of my all-time favorites!

The cake table? Umm…no words to describe.

And the SWEETS table?!?! I was born to be at this wedding…right?!ย 

Each table had vintage books relating to the seated party’s relationship to the couple…these were on the Bride’s table. Love!

Vintage crocheted wraps, toile fabrics, porcelain accents, hydrangeas & peonies…

The bride and her family went to antique stores each week for months before the wedding, to collect individual, unique vintage china for each setting! WOW!

Cards & gifts for the bride & groom were settled in an old wagon, complete with vintage quilt, fun photos of the couple and pure FUN!

Somebody went ALL OUT on their wedding gift wrapping…I was DYING laughing! So unique, so talented, and so memorable!

A HUGE congratulations to Lauren & Graham! I pray your marriage is as sweet, joyous and fun as your wedding day was! Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of it!

And a HUGE thank you, again, to Megan Plenge…you are such a special friend and I absolutely cherish our shooting time together! It’s always such a fun, relaxing treat to be your wingman. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for allowing me to help capture your sweet couples’ special days and celebrate in their joy with you. ย xo
