Kristen and Bret’s wedding was absolutely phenomenal! B and I traveled back to my hometown in preparation of their beautiful wedding overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The details were amazing and their entire day was absolutely perfect. Seriously, it was a fairytale wedding. A huge thank you goes out to Carrie for being an awesome Maid of Honor and super helpful throughout the day.

Kristen’s parents’ home has a hallway filled with family and school portraits and it was a perfect backdrop to showcase her beautiful dress!
Growing up, Kristen would look out the front door of her parents’ house and envision getting married right at this spot. During the ceremony, b drove over to Kristen’s parents’ house to create this image of Kristen’s childhood dream.
During the father-daughter dance, I love this moment and look from Kristen’s mother.
Bret is quite the dancer…
…And I am quite sure that he received those skills from his parents!
A little light painting to end the evening…
And of course, the newlyweds with the La Brisa team!
