Meryl + Jon {Western Rehearsal Dinner}

We are so excited to share Meryl and Jon's wedding weekend with you. We absolutely LOVED this wedding. It was filled with so much emotion and beauty that it was a blast to photograph and can we say easy too, no pushing for some love from these two!! We will start with the fun rehearsal dinner they had also at the Alisal Ranch in Solvang, a new favorite venue of ours! How can you go wrong with a western themed rehearsal dinner with lassos, horseshoes, and of course carne asada!   The wedding is coming up next! 

Of course our little Avi crashed the party! She is 6 months old here! :)Mix of film and digital.

We love how when we are helping our clients out with their photo timelines (mainly for lighting sake) and working through the complicated timing of the day, wonderful situations occur. This was just that. As we trying to time the couples portraits, details of the reception space, and a 25 minute ride up the mountain in the weeks leading up to the wedding day, we finally came up with a plan that worked. Unintentionally when the day came,  meryl and jon  were able to great their guests at the top of the hill and it all worked out more perfect then we could have written in the timeline. Happy accidents at weddings are the best and most memorable parts of the wedding day.  It was such a fun day! Of course I had to post a pic of her amazing shoes!

So much more of this awesome wedding to come...
