Heather and Corey - Wedding

Heather and Corey kicked off the wedding season in style! They were married at the Steele Canyon Golf Course. The DJ was from San Diego Wedding DJs - and also happened to be a longtime friend who went to high school (and knew both of them there!), so the DJing was extra fabulous!

Getting ready:



Some flower details (after the flowers were fixed following a flower disaster!):
Heather and Corey elected to do a First Look. As i've said to so many brides... its AWESOME to do pictures beforehand, so you can enjoy your cocktail hour, we aren't rushed and because it gives a little downtime for the two after the ceremony. Unfortunately, due to some miscommunications at the club, we didn't get as much time as we had planned... but to make up for it, Heather worked it.

The first look:

See? Working it!




The kids in the bridal party were adorable!


We had a little time before the ceremony... which is when Heather became a bundle of nerves. The traffic getting out to the golf course was really bad, so there was a bit longer of 'downtime' than we had anticipated.

The most emotional ceremony I have ever seen!
First kiss!



Mr. and Mrs. Steele... escaping from the ceremony.


Cake details:
First Dance... we had this awesome backlighting from the setting sun - I just love how the whole bridal party is lined up and everything (throughout the reception) was lit so warmly.
Not surprisingly, the speeches were also really emotional.
Father/Daughter dance:


And one more shot of the two of them to close things off...


Congratulations to the newleyweds! And thanks for helping me have so much fun and kicking my wedding season off in style!
