Happy Monday, friends!! I’m so excited to share this wedding with you! It was my first wedding of 2012 and boy, did it come through as one of the best ever! Joy and Tim were such a dream to work with…they were both so relaxed and trusted me with anything. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to call clients and more importantly, friends. These two have been together for many years so it was finally time to make it “official” :). With a couple that has been together for so long, taking photos is easy, effortless and comfortable. Very few nerves and hopeful excitement created a beautiful day at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa! I love this venue! Yes, you have guests walking around here and there since it is a hotel, but overall it’s a very intimate setting that works with any palate for an amazing wedding day.

Also, a HUGE thank you to Rachel of Bliss Events and her team for coordinating a flawless day!

Enjoy the photos of Joy & Tim’s lovely day…

Joy’s parents were very emotional throughout the day…love this moment with Joy and her mother.

Amazing flowers by Rae Florae!

Gorgeous Kate Spade shoes…unfortunately one of the heels didn’t last the whole day. But luckily didn’t break until JUST after walking out of the ceremony. MOH shoes to the rescue!! 🙂

Joy is a STUNNING bride!

The first look…

These two are so cute together!

I mean, seriously…can this light get any better!! AH!

Tim’s reaction to Joy’s gift…a picture of it was on her phone. But that’s just a guess…it was for his eyes only! 😉

Gorgeous yellow and purple details…

When I asked Joy if the llamas in their logo had any significance, she said, “Not really…that’s just us!” Love it. 🙂
