We have the most amazing Disney-Hawaiian inspired wedding on the blog for you today! Ryan and Jody said ‘I Do’ in Camarillo at the McCormick House Ranch and incorporated their love for Disney and Hawaii perfectly into their wedding day vision.
We first met this couple through Instagram when we were looking for a Disney –loving couple for a shoot we had in mind. They were such the perfect fit and that shoot was even featured on Southern California Bride! Fast forward a few things and a month before their wedding Jody reached out asking if we could shoot their wedding, after telling us a bit more about the day she and Ryan were planning, I immediately said yes! We love when couples center the wedding on their interest, weddings days are unique and they should be a reflection of all that you love, Ryan and Jody did just this. From Disney themed table numbers, to a bounce house and food trucks, their entire day was a reflection of themselves.
While their entire day was amazing, one of our favorite moments was the amount of time we had to do portraits, Jody pretty much gave us free rein on portrait time and we had over an HOUR, yes over an HOUR for portraits, which honestly had me swooning! We were able to explore different areas of the venue and take advantage of the amazing warm golden light! I felt so spoiled over the amount of time, and the amount of images I was able to create, it was pure bliss!
While that amount of time for portraits was amazing, it didn’t quite top how amazing it was to capture the start of their forever. I probably have said this a million times, but I truly photograph weddings for my love or marriage. I am so passionate about marriage and what it represents and when I am able to capture the love story of two people who would give Ariel and Eric (the little mermaid) a run for their money, it makes my heart happy; happy that two people found their ‘happily ever after’ and happy that their love gets to be a testimony to marriage. The feelings they have for each other is truly awinspiring. There is nothing that Ryan wouldn’t do for Jody and likewise. Which made capturing this day, even more magical!
