august 11th . 2007 . the lodge at torrey pines
matthew and sarah are rockalicious. they were so much fun to photograph and were totally up for anything which always makes it fun for us :) here's a few of our favorites...
sarah taking a quick peek before the day got started...
a little foreplay :)
matthew was having a fun time with the tie :)
i just love the anticipation in matthew's face before he saw sarah for the first time!
since matthew and sarah decided to see each other prior to the ceremony, we had plenty of time to take some fun pictures of the two of them and wander around the grounds of the lodge. first up, the matthew!
sarah looked absolutely radiant!
we loving finding little out of the way places to make images...like this one which is my absolute favorite of the day...was taken against a concrete wall under an overpass.
sarah had a ginormous bouquet....it was like a third person so we figured it should take center stage for at least one pic :)
we love finding the "underbelly" of these gorgeous hotels and resorts to add a little grit to all the glamour of the wedding day...so you can imaging our excitement we stumbled upon the main air conditioner for the lower part of the building :)
an awesome moment between sarah and her father walking her down the aisle...
this shot pretty much sums up the whole ceremony...great light...lots of laughs...and lots of movement from the flower girl and ring bearer :)
after the ceremony matthew's niece wasn't too happy to be taken away while mommy was in the bridal party pictures :)
now this is the way to spend a cocktail hour!!!
how adorable is the flowergirl?!?!?
sarah is part of a group of tribal, urban, fusion, bellydancers so during the reception four of her girls surprised her with an awesome performance!!!
matthew's dance with his mother....
the amazing flying flower girl!
matthew had great form during the cake feeding :)
this week we have a special double dose of ring shot....the first one is pretty normal, and the second one is...
