Yes, you did read that right. The Bells are officially destination wedding photogs! And what better place to start than in sunny, beautiful, I’ll have another acai bowl at Swami’s, San Diego??!! Not only was this wedding special for its location, but, more importantly, because of the people. Sarah, the bride, is a Jazzercise buddy of mine. We bonded almost instantaneously over our love of triple steps, chasse ball changes and jazz squares. Even though we now live states away, our friendship (and Jazzer passion) will always be there.
Sarah and Matt were married at Crowne Plaza on a beautiful, spring afternoon. Their ceremony took place outside, in a palm-lined courtyard, surrounded by dear friends and family.
Sarah sent me a picture of her dress months ago, and I remember really liking it. Nothing beats seeing it in person though! I love the single shoulder strap!
A little bubbly to get the party started.
The bride’s sister and matron of honor helping with a few last minute touch ups.
While I was hanging with the girls, John was with Matt and his groomsmen.
Loving the color combo…
Sarah’s lovely momma watching her daughter glow with joy and anticipation.
What a handsome group!
Sarah’s dad gave her these beads (that were given to him when he was born) to pin to the inside of her gown. These are the touches that make each wedding so special and unique.
Ladies, you look awesome.
Sarah and her sister are so cute together!
Yellow is such a great wedding color. It’s just so happy!
Okay, Sarah, you are completely, undeniably gorgeous.
And a rock star.
And….Sarah, seriously, I’m running out of adjectives!!!
Yellow shoes! Love!
Sarah and girls bringing on the sass…
