Music, Magic, Pianos and Paintings! The Stunning Rancho Bernardo Inn and St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church Wedding of Tara and Andrew

Welcome to the wedding day of Tara and Andrew….a day they’ve been dreaming of for a long time!

So of course, each and every detail was perfect!

From the invitations to the bouquet and everything in between!

I always make a point to capture all the bride’s beautiful accessories…
I think to myself “what will she want to look at 50 years from now?”

…and then I capture it!
(that’s why Tara and Andrew’s Wedding Gallery has  1300+ portraits!)

And before we get too far into the story of their wedding day,
I’ll just mention that we had so much fun at their stunning   Disney Symphony Hall ENGAGEMENT SESSION
that I already knew it was going to be a fun and fabulous wedding day!!!!

When we arrived at the bride’s  suite,  the bride and her girls had just about finished their hair and make up and Tara was ready to step into her amazing wedding gown….

**Of course I wanted to capture all of that getting ready fun too….

I want to capture the STORY OF THE DAY not just the formal pics!

After a few sweet bridal portraits, we headed outside to capture some special moments with her bridesmaids…

The bride and groom wanted to have a “First Touch” – just a quiet moment before the ceremony where they don’t see each other, but instead just hold hands and soak in the early emotions of their wedding day.

(Side note:  I always schedule a venue pre-visit a couple weeks before the wedding – that’s when I found this amazing and beautiful corner for the two to reach around and ‘connect’)

Then it was time to dash to St. Gregory The Great Catholic Church for their wedding ceremony.

I love to keep things fun and relaxed AND give my bride and grooms an assortment of portraits –
posed, formal and stunning as well as fun, silly and carefree….

In addition to portraits captured at St. Gregory The Great Catholic Church, we also saved some portrait time for the Rancho Bernardo Inn.

**And if you’ve never been there – is a beautiful place for a wedding reception – with beautiful rooms to get ready in and lush gardens everywhere for amazing portraits.

It’s a photographer’s dream!

The ballroom was all dressed up for the wedding too!

You absolutely HAVE TO SEE their amazing wedding day video show HERE and portrait gallery with 1200+ more portraits!

And did I mention that I first met Bride Tara at her sister’s wedding five years ago?
