After a humid heat wave in California, Cameron and Chanel’s wedding day ended up with the perfect weather. Woven into every detail of the day was a bit of love and heritage. Every family and friend invited had the sweetest smile and the kindest hearts. They congratulated the newlyweds with the biggest hugs. I loved capturing the Celtic details of Cameron’s Scottish heritage and Chanel’s Irish heritage at their Rancho Santa Fe California Wedding.
I visited Cameron first since he was on the way to the wedding. He finished getting ready with his father and best man, making sure every detail was attached properly from his head to toe, including his crest, kilt, sporran, garter flashes, knife, and shoes.
Then I drove on to take photos of the details and bride finishing getting ready. Driving through Rancho Santa Fe, California was absolutely stunning. Houses were hidden behind beautiful wooden areas with winding roads and hills throughout.
This little bow is extra special, she used to wear it on her Sunday dresses as a little girl. Her mom and dad pinned it to the back of her wedding dress.
I absolutely loved her sparkling Steve Madden shoes! A gift from her father.
Her wedding ring was custom designed with Celtic flair (Chanel actually designs engagement rings!)
Her bouquet ribbon matched her groom’s kilt!
Chanel had to step into the side of her wedding dress. Luckily, she had a lot of great help and the dress slipped on with no trouble at all!
Oh my heart! It was so sweet to watch this daddy-daughter first look!
A little touch-up from momma before family photos.
Butterfly wedding photos are always a good idea!
Then it was off to The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe for the wedding ceremony in the new Bentley!
The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe is a beautiful place for a wedding! From the Tuscany inspired landscape and architecture to the delicious food, it was a pleasure to be there!
The groom seeing the bride for the first time!
During the first kiss, all of the guests released an individual butterfly, so beautiful!
All of the bridesmaids wore tiara’s and looked like princesses! Chanel’s father designed her tiara, fit for a queen!
We had a few butterflies left to play with for husband and wife portraits!
I am so happy for these two to be married!
I had a blast with you two! I wish you the most happiness in your marriage and thank you for letting me be your photographer 🙂
