The couples favorite moment(s):
Sarah's favorite moment from the day was walking down the rose path to see Aaron for the first time. Their first look was also Aaron's favorite moment from the day.
Surprises for each other:
Sarah and Aaron didn't necessarily exchange any surprises or gifts with each other.
If Sarah & Aaron could relive just five minutes of their wedding day over and over what five minutes would that be and why?
Both Sarah and Aaron agreed that their private first look was their favorite part of the day that they could relive over and over again. She said she didn't have to worry about anything else.
When I first met Sarah I was drawn to her unique ideas and plans for the wedding. She had visions of a simple wedding followed by a larger celebration sometime in the future. I personally love intimate affairs so my interest in Sarah & Aaron's wedding was immediately peaked. After a brief chat at the wedding show Sarah sent me an email to set up their consult. During our Facetime consult we chatted more about their specific wedding plans and ideas for their wedding photos and portraits. After going over timeline and ideas for their engagement session I knew we were going to be a great fit, I was so excited to document their engagement and wedding.
The day of the wedding I arrived and got straight to work photographing the gorgeous ceremony venue, Paine Art Center & Garden, such a beautiful setting no matter which direction you turn there is always something photo worthy.
Sarah and her girls were putting on their final details so I promptly got to work photographing Aaron and his groomsmen and all of the details of their ensembles. I just love the Navy suits and rose quartz accents.
As Aaron was getting set for their first look I utilized the gorgeous natural light to photograph Sarah and all her details. I can't get over the classic elegance of her wedding dress, the low cut back adds just enough modern flair.
The hedges along the Rose Garden provided the perfect location for Sarah & Aaron's first look. The long gorgeous lines of the hedges made for the most gorgeous and dramatic lead up to their first look. Don't you agree? Sarah and Aaron exchanged letters and were allowed a private moment between the two of them. I just couldn't help myself, they are so naturally adorable with their interactions I crept through the gate for some unposed images photographed from afar.
The ceremony was simple, twenty-eight guests total to witness their union in front of the Rose Garden. Their closest friends and family to celebrate their marriage.
See what I mean? These two needed very little posing. They are so cute, I can't even handle it no prompting needed.
We managed to get a few family portraits completed before the rain started in. Fortunately the Paint Art Center & Garden lacks no shortage of adorable photo ops so we headed to the Morning Terrace to finish family portraits and begin the wedding party photos.
These bouquets! I'm literally obsessed they are so gorgeous!
Thankfully the rain let up enough to allow us to finish up Sarah & Aaron's bride and groom portraits. So beautiful!
