Jessica + Spencer: Orange County Wedding

A San Juan Capistrano DIY Wedding

The Millers -- Oh what a joy it was to be a part of their special day! Somehow Jessica and I became friends on Facebook, probably due to all of our mutual friends and the fact that she grew up next door to one of my closest friends. Regardless, she contacted me about photographing her wedding and I was beyond thrilled to accept simply because she's gorgeous, but also because I loved what I saw on her Facebook profile. I knew instantly we would be a good fit.

They were married right up the hill from the house she grew up in. Literally up the hill! I mean talk about an amazing location! Who would have thought it would be right here in Orange County, California? We stepped right into the woods and it was magical. After the ceremony, we headed to the community clubhouse for the reception. Their wedding was a true DIY wedding. I'm so glad I could be a part of it.

Also shout-out to Chip Kimmich, the other photographer (Who knows who was first or second ha!)

I absolutely love they took communion together -- one of my favorite moments from the day.

 I love this final image especially because it's so blurry. You can just tell they are beyond stoked to be married and to be celebrated -- these are the true real, raw moments.
