Charlyn and Mathew’s Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Wedding was absolutely beautiful and so much fun.  When we met Charlyn and Matt a year or so prior to their wedding date we immediately knew they were our kind of couple.  Matt is creatively inclined while Charlyn is incredibly organized, making them a perfect balance.  They like to have a lot of fun and we always find ourselves laughing a lot when around them.  They chose the beautiful Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines for their wedding for many reasons but among them the facility could accommodate their large number of guests and families as well as host a room for their traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony and a separate ballroom for their reception.  Charlyn and Matt’s ceremony was held outside on one of the terraces over looking the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course.  The wedding day wet so smooth and everyone seemed to have a tremendous amount of fun.  Thanks for sharing your amazing day with us we feel so lucky.

The little flower girls were so cute getting their make up done.Charlyn’s beautiful modern dress for her traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony.  Then she changed into a wedding dress for their outdoor ceremony.
Charlyn and Matt had a first look in the lobby of the Hilton before their Tea Ceremony.  It was such a special moment to be a part of.We have to thank Matt for this little jem with the T.rex.  Being in the Hollywood special effects industry he came up with this idea a while back before it became popular but was torn on whether or not to still do it.   When it came to wedding day we thought why not.Vendors

Tucson is known for its warm weather and bright sunny days.  Well Brad and Brooke’s wedding day started out with weather quite out of character for this dry city.   We were met at the Skyline Country Club by blustering winds and rain showers.  Who would have thought.  As Brooke and her girls got ready curling their hair and the Gentlemen played some poker, the rain storm finally let up.  The awesome event staff at the Skyline Country Club boogied to set up and dry off everything for Brad and Brooke’s outdoor ceremony.  When the guests arrived everything looked beautiful!  The Skyline Country Club has an amazing outdoor spiral stair case and it had dried up enough that Brooke was able to use it for her grand entrance. We are so glad that everything came together so beautiful for Brad and Brooke on their wedding day.  They are two incredibly sweet and fun people and we wish them many more years of fun and passion.  Thanks so much for including us in your special day!

Brooke had matching pink robes embroidered for all her bridesmaids to relax in and wear while they were getting ready.  So cute!Brad put a lot of time and thought into his gifts to Brooke.  Each gift bag had a memento from their relationship and note attached with loving words. Family is incredibly important to Brooke and it was so sweet capturing both her mom and stepmom helping her into her beautiful wedding dress.We just love this moment shared between Brad and his Father.  These two are just too awesome!

Brad and Brooke didn’t want to see one another before the wedding but we found them a nice little spot where they could hold hands for a moment and share a little prayer together.

As a woman trying to wear heels and stand around in grass is a serious challenge.  Seeing as how all of Brooke’s bridesmaids were going to wear sweet high heels, Brad made the entire wedding party white wooden hearts to stand on during the ceremony.  It sure looked cute with all the hearts lined up.  You can’t even tell that it had rained! What an amazing wedding day.Brooke’s entrance was phenomenal coming down the grand outdoor staircase at the Skyline Country ClubI do!It was just a selfie kind of moment.I seriously love these two on the stair case!  Have you guys modeled before? are you sure?Brad and Brooke had a really fun reception.  There were some incredibly sentimental toasts and lots and lots of dancing!Oh how we love a sparkler send off!

Working with newborn babies can be a lot of fun.  Even at such a young age they all have little unique personalities.  Parker was the perfect little baby on our shoot with him.  He was happy and awake when we arrived allowing us time to get some really great photos with him and his parents.  After some smiling and pirate winking he was ready for a meal and a nice nap.  This was of course the perfect time to wrap him up and get those awesome newborn sleeping photos.  We had a great time working with Parker and his wonderful parents.  It will be fun to see him grow and change.
