Mr & Mrs Gallagher – Wedgewood San Clemente

Alaina and Timothy are best friends. They know what the other is thinking, he can calm her anxious feelings and she makes him smile from ear-to-ear. Throughout their wedding day at The Wedgewood in San Clemente, they reminded us of how much fun new love is and that magical feeling you get on your wedding day. The newlywed love is intense and bubbly, like champagne. And who doesn’t love mimosas?

Watching Alaina and Timothy share that kind of heart-pounding, romantic, googley-eyed tenderness for one another makes us want to bottle up all that emotion and sprinkle it onto the whole wide world. Imagine if everyone gave their favorite person a high-five, held them tenderly cheek to cheek, and ate a piece of cake by the end of each day? Yup, everyone would feel just fabulous! Their day made everyone smile and we are honored to be a part of it..

Congratulations Alaina and Timothy! We wish you all the happiness and then some! XoXo, Melissa & Scott

Christina & Ryan – Beautiful Temecula Wedding

We’ve been looking froward to Christina & Ryan’s big day since we met them… And of course, their wedding in Temecula was unforgettable, with rolling golden hills, sprawling fields of leafy vines, a charming cottage, and an amazing military couple. Christina and Ryan are some of the most genuine, kind and fun people you will ever meet! They truly made us feel like part of their family. It was an honor to document their day, and shooting at the stunning venue, Temecula Creek Inn. When Christina and Ryan embraced for the first time on their wedding day, their smiles were so bright they challenged the midday sun. Their day was nothing short of perfection, which was simply a reflection of their love…for each other and those around them. We appreciate the honor of documenting your wedding and it was a blast being adopted for a day by your families… The festivities, the joy, and the FUN made your day a memorable experience and we couldn’t think of a better way to start your lives together. Much Love and Appreciation… Melissa & Scott

LOVE is sweet!

If you ever thought love wasn’t sweet, then wait till you see our favorite photos from this gorgeous wedding.  Joyce and Darius celebrated their wedding day surrounded by the ones they love the most at Tustin Ranch Golf Course. The  details that they added were the per­fect touch to this already gor­geous venue. Their hap­pi­ness for each other and the friends and fam­ily around them made this day truly special. Enjoy! Honored to be featuring their wedding today.   XoXo, Scott + Melissa

Kelly + Anthony = Married!

Sometimes when we show up to begin our day shooting a wedding, we just know instantly that it’s going to be a great day! Full of lots of moments and pretty things to document. Without a doubt, that happened when we showed up to the Victorian Mansion in Santa Monica to begin documenting Kelly and Anthony’s wedding day. If you haven’t been to the  Victorian before, it’s a stunner. Every nook and cranny is beautiful and worth cherishing and photographing. Kelly & Anthony put so much of themselves into the wedding – from making the invitations, the bouquets and the boutonnieres to choosing what books to use for the centerpieces to writing their own vows and having the guys wear superhero cufflinks! They didn’t over think any of it, and let things happen as the universe saw fit. There’s something so beautiful about that to us, chronic over-thinkers. We loved the energy of this day. Kelly and Anthony, it was a pleasure to capture your beautiful wedding. Here are a few favorite moments from your day. XoXo, Melissa + Scott
