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.
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.
What a fantastic ceremony end!! Love the colors!
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!
