Fun Fact: This was a bi-coastal wedding in a way: Ashleigh and Micheal booked me, then Ashleigh’s brother Brigham proposed to Jessica and booked Erica for their east coast wedding! Check back in October for their wedding in Newport!
Most Memorable Moment: Ok, this is a selfish memorable moment M & A: Before the wedding started I was taking test exposures for the processional shots. All of a sudden 3 guests start heckling me that “we cant believe Jim (Ashleigh’s dad) allowed a Canon to photograph her daughters wedding!” huh? Turns out her dad works at Nikon. I had no idea! They kept making jokes that if I missed a shot their Nikons would surely capture it!
When I got home from Ashleigh and Michael’s wedding last week I was on visual overload. So much to see, photograph, beauty was everywhere I turned. Thats what you get when you photograph a wedding coordinators wedding! Michael and Ashleigh enlisted the help of Pacific Events, based out of Las Vegas where they are from. Their crew brought in all the lighting, flowers and Manzanita trees in the week before and worked all night long and all day to get everything ready. The final product was unbelievable. If I had to describe it in one sentence it would be a mix of old school Hollywood glamor with little accents of diamonds throughout. Stunning! Auberge was transformed!
I could go on and on about the day but I’ll let the photos do the talking.
Michael and Ashleigh, have a great time in Africa, take tons of photos!
Ashleigh and Michael decided to do all photos before the wedding… this is my favorite photo from their first sight in La Pagode at Auberge:
Aren’t the hair pieces fabulous?
