Happy couples are possibly my favorite thing in the entire world. I don’t mean just happy, I think it’s safe to say that most people are happy, but those couples who can’t stop giggling throughout their photo sessions are what make my heart soar! Summer and Daniel are one of those couples! And, to make this wedding even more wonderful, I found myself back at Milagro Winery!
She’s a Dodgers fan, he only cheers for the Padres and yet, they’re perfect together. I love how much Daniel loves Summer, like LOVES Summer (so it’s good thing he married her!). Usually brides are all gushy in love on their wedding day, and the grooms just want me to stop taking their photos… but not Daniel! He thought Summer looked so beautiful, that he literally had his phone out and snapped pictures of her whenever he wasn’t being posed.
Daniel is also a Youth Pastor and an amazing singer! He kept all of us vendors quite entertained with his INCREDIBLE voice singing songs of worship and praise. It brought such a lovely spirit to this event, and Summer just beamed with pride and adoration. Summer too is just darling! She’s that girl at work/school who’s happy all of the time, and just so in love with Daniel. She had a go-with-the-flow, rain-or-shine, she and Daniel can get through anything kind of an attitude. It was infectious!
I love that these two chose a very simple white color palette for their wedding. From the Groom’s accessories, to the flowers and the invitation suite, a white floral aesthetic is classic and timeless!
I’m so blessed to get to do what I love. Thank you for letting me capture your love, Daniel & Ally!
