Irvine Nature Center: Martin and Katy

Irvine Nature Center: Martin and Katy

Irvine Nature center lends itself to green, funky, fun weddings and their wedding was no exception. This wedding was a completely unique experience because Martin and Katy had a very specific color, texture, and design aesthetic.


Irvine Nature Center : Martin and Katy

I had been looking forward to it for a full  year because we did their engagement session way back in the fall of 2010 in Patterson Park! You can check it out here. I knew from those photos that Katy would be a stunning bride and that Martin was totally in love with her (as he should be).

Martin and Katy have been together since college so the casino wedding was a very personal and emotional one. There was a moment during the ceremony where they were both crying so much they stopped and gave each other a hug. I love seeing those real emotions spill out in front of my camera and I was honored to be there in such an intimate moment.

The bridal party was hysterical and we spent time playing in the woods and by the trolley. What happens when you get a bunch of theater and design geeks together..magic. They were definitely my kind of people and my second photographer  and I wanted to be friends with everyone that attended.  They were all sporting vintage clothing, mix matched colors, and awesome accessories. The dance floor was like a rock concert at times and I literally think they broke the dance floor. Now that is a great party. The night ended with a campfire marshmallow roast where friends gave ” I love you guys” speeches with sticky hands raising glasses and toasting their gorgeous day.

Thanks to all the fabulous Vendors who made this event totally unique!
