Amber and Nick~ Destination Wedding Photographer~ Redondo Beach, California
Really? That is all I have to say about how pretty Amber looked on her Wedding Day. First off, this Wedding was extra special to me because not only was I honored to be asked to document such an intimate and Special Wedding Day, but it is my beautiful cousin!!! Growing up, even though we lived in different states, we were like sisters! (I’m pretty excited and ashamed to admit that I am in the same gene pool as this lady…;) Although, she is in a class of her own….)
Amber and Nick have a SUPER adorable and unique story!! I love that. So, Amber and Nick met in 3rd grade 😉 (Hence, why she walked down the aisle to George Strait’s “Check yes or No”….too damn cute.) They were friends, and went their separate ways in life…but as fate would have it, they were reconnected in recent years….and the rest is history folks! They are the cutest couple together…and I am pretty obsessed with how cute Nick is with all his tattoos….but then is literally the nicest person you’ve ever met in your life!
They had originally planned their Wedding on a Lake/boat outside of Phoenix (where they live)– but things just weren’t falling into place– so they said “forget it! Let’s get married by the Ocean!” Amber really loved the Nautical theme idea– as did I!– so it went perfectly with the location! It was a very intimate and small Wedding– with mainly immediate family, and a few old friends— it was just perfect size!
One thing that I really thought was sweet…and made me cry a bit….was the little “Stacey” charm that Amber had given to Nick and the best man, and Nicks Parents– as nicks’ sister had passed away not too long before, and it was a great way to know that she was there in spirit! Her beautiful little kiddos got to be ring bearer and flower girl (one of them) as well– and did a great job!! 😉 Such cutie-patooties.
So much history and back story and little details with these two— such a great story— I love that. Period.
So, here we go! Probably too many photos as usual….but who cares, right?
Venue: Hotel Portofino, Redondo Beach, CA
