The first time i talked to Amanda on the phone, she sounded like thee most excited bride i’ve ever spoken to or even met.  You could just hear the  love oozing for Phil and the excitement for their wedding in her voice.  It was ADORABLE – like her.  And, when i say excited for their wedding, i do not mean so much for the actual wedding day, but for the meaning and the beauty of marriage and what it stands for.  So, when she and Phil decided to have me photograph their wedding, i knew that it was going to be so wonderful, so full of their personality, genuity, love for each other and for the Lord…and it was just that :)

The gals started getting ready at the El Cordova Hotel.

So beautiful!! I look at these pics often, for I am getting married at the Coronado Community Center in October. Every thing is gorgeous! I do have a question–I am a bit obsessed with the wedding gown. Can anyone tell me who made that dress/where it’s from? Thanks :).

Gorgeous! Love the details and the car shots. Also, it’s pretty hard not to like a ring shot when there are gummy bears involved. ;)
