Its really hard to know where to start on this one . . . This wedding was such an incredible production, such a myriad of details and special moments, all coming together at once. Ailien and Drake were fantastic to work with. They are this really special couple that is so happy to be with each other. They each have such an air about them, and Drake’s unforgettable laugh is contagious and infectious! Bronson, Eder, and I spent 13 hours with them on the wedding day, from the traditional tea ceremony at Ailien’s parents house to the wedding ceremony at St Therese of Carmel to the reception at the Hotel del Coronado. It was such a great experience and there are so many amazing pictures to show (I think I set a record in this post for number of photos . . . ).
The parasols were an awesome touch by Ailien. She got them for all of her girls, and they were perfect for the wedding photos. The ones of Ailien alone with her parasol are also amazing. The light we were able to work with down at the Coronado beach was phenomenal.
This whole event was possible because of the amazing team of vendors Ailien and Drake assembled, and I have to give them some of the credit!
