I had the privilege of second shooting alongside with the fabulous Lucy of Lucy Munoz Photography back in September. To call her sweet is an absolute understatement! She totally Rocks!
The beautiful wedding was held at the Green River Golf Course in Corona (right down the street where I used to live and I had no idea this gem was even there!) The bride Anissa looked gorgeous! I fell in love with her beautiful gown, it was so fluffy and elegant. I felt a little soft spot for her groom Randy because he reminded me of one of my brothers! The whole wedding party & guests were so warm to Lucy & I, they treated us like we were a part of the family! Thank you Lucy for allowing me to shoot with you, it was a great experience!
Ruffles! Ruffles! Ruffles!
Isnt she a doll!!!
In the hotel room next door the groom & his men were getting dressed...
I had no idea how many styles there were in tying ties! And they knew neither of them lol so they actually youtubed it!
He figured it out! Woo hoo!
Nothing like a little Jack Daniels to get the party started!
Look what I found hovering around! Gosh i love hummingbirds!!!
They decided on having a first look before their ceremony! It was a great opportunity to get intimate photos of the stunning couple!
He was one happy groom walking to the altar!
Precious moments from the mother of the groom!
The next photo is my favorite! There were railroad tracks behind the golf course & it hadn’t bothered the wedding until they were about to exchange their vows… then three trains crisscrossed each other blowing their horns very loudly as they passed. Yes I said THREE TRAINS!!! Instead of freaking out, everyone started rolling with laughter! It was great! It just goes to show that no matter how well you plan for a flawless wedding, you can’t control everything! So just roll with it and laugh it off!
The couples first dance as husband and wife!
Father & daughter dance!
It was one of Anissa’s bridesmaids birthday and Anissa surprised her with candles on her slice of cake! It was so sweet and thoughtful!
Loving the Michael Jackson Kick!
