The One with Sandy & Dave's Wedding

I am a firm believer that God is a masterful planner. He really has a way with weaving together the sweetest love stories. I can't wait to go to Heaven someday and go back and look at the intricacies of my own life because I am thoroughly enjoying the love story He's written for Adam and I.

Sandy and Dave were destined to meet and fall in love. They went to the same high school and didn't meet again until years later. They were surprised to know that God had made their paths cross again, this time in His perfect timing.

Their wedding was held at the El Cajon Seventh-Day Adventist Church. It has a beautiful sanctuary in a circular building with tall ceilings. Daniel and Kevin came along to help me and I couldn't have done it with my boys backing me up.

Sandy had a beautiful vintage wedding gown. I love vintage dresses!

Sandy was so easy to photograph because she was constantly smiling all day long. A happy bride is a smiling one!

And because no post of Jasmine's is without kiddies... here are some of my fave kid shots.

This cutie just shone so brightly all day - she smiles from ear to ear!

And then when she put on her flower girl dress, she just kept twirling in it.

Another flower girl getting her hair done. I love the little delicate flowers.

The bible bearer. Look at those eyes!

This wedding was definitely a community effort. You just knew that Sandy and Dave were deeply loved by their friends and family because of how much time and effort they put into making this day a special one for them. I love this shot of a fruit plate that they made! Not bought... MADE!

I had showed her my LCD earlier that day and from then on, she wanted to see the photos of herself! Not exactly the best thing to happen during a ceremony.

Their super yummy cake... I could have eaten five slices, easily.

Sandy and Dave, I hope that your move to Arizona was a smooth one. Thank you for having us come out to capture your wedding day. We wish you many years full of God's blessings!

You've gone from second and/or third photographer to the main one. If I like photographing weddings, I hope I get to that point on a full-time basis.

I'm proud of you. Congrats!
