What I love about my job is the fact that no matter how many weddings I do in the same venue, each one is different from the last one.
Samantha and Jacob's wedding was SO refreshing to capture! Even though it was totally beautiful, their wedding was less about the details, and more about the emotion and creating meaningful memories.
Beautiful Eclectic, Effortless Wedding
I arrived early to the gorgeous Hacienda Siesta Alegre to find a bright and sunny day. I met Jacob and his groomsmen, who were hanging around the venue while refreshing with drinks. After they dressed up, we walked around the hacienda for a couple of photos, after which I visited the ladies. They were completely relaxed, as there was no one else in the room but them. After Samantha's friends helped her get ready, we did a short portrait session just before the Ceremony.
The wedding had an effortless, informal and eclectic theme to it. Paired with romantic white, pink and gold decor, the couple had cupcakes and a yummy pastry bar instead of cake, and converse sneakers instead of high heels.
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony, Amazing Party, and Bubble Farewell
The ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt, and oh, so happy! It was followed by an amazing sunset photo session, which gave amazing golden hues to the newlywed photo session.
One of my favorite parts of the day was the party! There was some mayor dance moves and I was worried someone would fall in the fountain because the crowd was wild! After some romantic slow-dancing to finish off the night, the guests gave the newlyweds a bubble farewell under the twinkling lights in the dancefloor.
I'm so excited to share this set with you, and so happy to have been trusted with such special and fun memories.
