Annie and Joe had a charming ranch wedding at Lake Oak Meadows in Temecula on a perfectly overcast day. The excitement in the air was palpable among friends and family in attendance. This was a happy day. Before the ceremony, Annie got ready with her bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law while Joe and his guys hung out on the other side of the venue. As Annie spoke about the days leading up to the wedding and the typical stress involved with planning such a big event, she mentioned Joe as he one thing that kept her sane. They are best friends and both of their faces lit up the minute they saw each other. It was such an honor to be a witness to this very special day. The über-talented Heather Kincaid invited me along to shoot this wedding with her, so a big thank you to her and to Annie and Joe for being so welcoming. Here is their day.
I had a lot of fun with the juxtaposition of Annie’s fancy dress and shoes against the country roughness of this cabin at Lake Oak Meadows.
Annie’s bracelet was amazing!
I’m in love with this next image on the left. There’s just something so timeless about a little flower girl standing back to watch a bride get ready on her wedding day. This particular flower girl was in absolute awe of Annie.
The flower girls and ring bearers were just so sweet!
I loved all of the charming details.
Best wishes to you, Annie and Joe!
