Audrey and Brad have the cutest story of how their relationship came to be! They actually had their first kiss when they were 13 years old during a game of truth or dare. After that, they didn’t connect again until senior year of high school when their respective best friends began dating each other. Once they finally did reconnect, though, everything just clicked into place. The pair began dating and have now been together for about 8 years… and now they’re married!
We took first look wedding photos in this cute little outdoor courtyard space. Audrey looked so beautiful in a simple, a-line wedding dress, and Brad looked handsome as heck in a classic black groom tux. After an emotional first look came the ceremony!
The outdoor wedding ceremony took place right in front of one of the prettiest trees I’ve ever seen! You need to scroll to see those photos because they came out magically. The ceremony space was simply designed with wooden chairs and neutral florals. The couple had the sweetest vows to say to each other, and this was such a fun and enjoyable wedding ceremony!
After saying their “I do’s,” the couple and their guests headed over to the courtyard reception. The reception design was also kept simple, with a gorgeous color palette of white, olive, and gold that tied in with the rest of the wedding day details. Fun fact: the company that did the wedding invitations was SoCal Graphics, which is actually the groom’s dad’s company!
The reception went well into the night, and it was sooooo much fun! This wedding was such a joy to capture. Sending you so much love, Audrey and Brad, and thank you for letting me capture this wonderful day.
