Friends, do we have one pretty wedding to grace your screens today! This wedding has quickly become one of our new favorites and once you start scrolling you will definitely see why! We had the absolute honor of photographing Kristen and Jesse’s lush garden wedding at Heritage Museum in Orange County this past weekend and our eyes are still heart shaped!
From the moment we arrived, we were totally smitten and in love with every single thing we saw. Gorgeous maxi floral dress for the girls. Dapper grey fitted suits for the guys. And every single inch of the venue was covered in greenery and flowers. It was basically a dream come true and totally put our cameras into overdrive ;).
We loved just how lush and luxurious the wedding looked, but how these two were able to keep such an authentic, laid back and genuine party feel. It truly felt like a summer garden party and one we did not want to be over!
However, their gorgeous wedding was just a tiny part of why we had such a great time. Because, although we were smitten with every detail. We were even more smitten with these two! Kristen and Jesse’s love story started 13 years ago back when they were two teenagers just trying to navigate high school. It truly was an honor to tell their love story, because there is something so authentic about telling a story that started in high school. Finding your future husband in high school is so innocent, and truly makes you believe in that once in a lifetime love.
More than the lovey-dovey aspects, these two grew up together. While they were navigating college and life, they were growing up with each other. But more than just growing up with each other, they grew up together. They learned to navigate life together, they learned to handle relationships while becoming adults and there is just something so special about that. There is something about that, that makes you believe in fairy tales, and happily ever after’s.
Kristen and Jesse, we truly love you two! We love your friends, your families and from the moment we met at your engagement session we couldn’t wait for this day to come. You two are so kind and genuine and joyful beyond belief. We cannot wait to see what big things you accomplish next right by each other’s side—just like you have been since high school.
