So look. If there was a hurricane projected to make landfall the day of your wedding, you’d probably be humming the tune of Alanis Morissette “Ironic,” am I right?
The days leading up to Lauren & Amanda’s wedding, I watched the weather pretty nervously. While I know you can get some pretty unique not-your-every-day-wedding-photos in the rain, not everybody is psyched for that weather outcome. But, on Lauren & Amanda’s big day, Mother Nature simmered down, the storm headed back out to sea, and most importantly, those two darling brides weren’t letting the drizzle get them down. Seriously, their positivity and HUGE smiles made it feel like we were hanging out in the tropics.
What I love about Lauren and Amanda is how kind and easy going they are. They were totally game for adventuring around the ins and outs of the church…up stairwells and down in the maze like hallways below. I tried to have them do their first look inside the columbarium because I totally didn’t know what that was (you learn something new every day). After they nicely explained that it would probably be both weird and frowned upon, we settled for the nook leading up to its entrance, since it was perfectly symmetrical and nice and private. Shooting their portraits in the National City Christian Church‘s courtyard and up those epic steps was a dream. Their reception was a blast (line dancing was taken very seriously). It was such a happy day, I’m pretty sure I smiled the entire time 🙂
Congratulations Lauren & Amanda! You guys rule! – Lexi
