rebecca & nate's wedding

I know it's been awhile, but I have tons of pictures to post, so keep an eye out for more weddings (and a handful of engagement sessions) to come!

I want to start off with Rebecca and Nate's wedding at Corazón.

The Vera Wang bridesmaids' dresses were really gorgeous!
When he saw Becca for the first time in her dress, Nate wanted to do so in a private setting to keep the moment more special. Here's his mom and Becca's girls peeking as her sister covers Nate's eyes.

I love the Old World look of Corazón.
Bart from the Daisy Basket put together the most beautiful bouquets for the girls. They were all a little different, some with sweet peas, others with what we decided should just be called "redonculous," since none of us could pronounce it properly.

I really like this next image...I think they look like classic movie stars.

So Becca, Nate, and I were walking around the grounds to do their portraits and kept hearing this shrill half frantic, half furious shrieking. We looked around and there was this fat little bird who decided the open bed next to the walkway was a good place to have her babies. I don't know what she was thinking...she would've had the same level of privacy had she nested on the hood of someone's car.... One way or the other, she puffed up and screamed any time anyone would walk past her domain and throughout the ceremony, she made her protest. I'm sure she thought she was terrifying.
Nate and his family collected each and every one of these rocks from the beach near his home.
Rabbi Huber has officiated a few weddings I've photographed and I always like seeing him. He's great at explaining the significance of the Ketubah and I like hearing him sing.
Here's more of Bart's handywork. The long tables and organic centerpieces of lush flowers and moss flowed perfectly with the Tuscan setting of the venue. The chuppah he designed was perfect. They wanted their chuppah to compliment the setting, not stand out from it and Bart delivered!

This next shot is by Christa.
Here's Nate breaking the glass...a REAL glass, mind you, and a rather thick wimpy lightbulbs for him! He was really quite proud of himself as you'll see. He should be; it was impressive.

Another fabulous shot by Christa as the wedding party gathers post ceremony.
Everyone was commending this bridesmaid for her bravery and mastery of these killer shoes. She even walked well in the grass. Kudos.

Larry Lee & Back In the Day provided some kick-ass entertainment! The dance floor was small, but packed to the walls. It's always fun to watch the bride and groom dance together for a large part of the reception and Becca and Nate really just seemed to enjoy themselves , each other, and their party.In fact, the band was so good and everyone was having such a good time, that the horah was nearly forgotten. With Bart's help, we got it going and chairs were flying!

Thanks so much to Becca & Nate for being so wonderful and to your families who were so involved and helpful throughout the day. I wish you all the best for your new lives together!

Kitty, I can't stop staring at this wedding - your images are breathtaking! The whole series is just so classically beautiful. They do look like Old Hollywood movie stars!
