Rachael and Joe’s wedding day starts at Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn for getting ready, first look, couple’s portraits, wedding party and family formals… woah! But guess what? It all felt effortless with a big group of fun, excited and lovely people to be photographing. This venue has gorgeous light in their center courtyard and this group is a blast! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn weddings are the best!
Rachael is the oldest of 4 girls, so she shared a very special first look with her dad. They are both the sweetest and of course, they were bringing tears to everyone’s eyes. On the flip side, Joe is an only child and the pride and happiness beaming from his parents faces was so perfect. Like I said, a seriously awesome group!
As we walked across the street to Bali Hai after the ceremony, everyone was ready to party! The views at Bali Hai are tough to beat. I love our San Diego skyline and how the weather is always perfect for an outdoor reception. Because Rachael and Joe did a first look they were able to mingle for most of their cocktail hour. I love when a couple makes their wedding day their own! The rest of the night continues with tearful speeches, sweet dances, cocktails, cake and even a choreographed dance by Rachael, her dad and sisters to “I want you back” by *NSYNC.
I’m so excited to dive in to ALL the images from the day! In the meantime, enjoy these previews…
