Abby and Matt Wedding Newport Beach, California

Abby and Matt were sealed in the Newport Beach Temple in California. It was a long day for everyone, but an absolutely gorgeous day at that. We started with a wedding brunch in Laguna Beach California in the Hotel Laguna. I am so glad that Abby and Matt budgeted a lot of time for us to shoot photos together, it really allowed me to be more creative and we ended up getting some really awesome shots at the temple and the beach. We went back to Laguna Beach for some shots and ended up taking some shots at the very gazebo where Matt proposed to Abby. I had an absolute blast shooting and flew back early Saturday morning and had a couple hours rest before shooting Stevie and Nick's wedding, which as you probably know, will be my next blog post....so stay tuned yet again :P






















I heard it's Matt's family tradition for every wedding to wear the most silly socks ever invented, lol.































Hahaha, in case you are wondering about this most awesomely creative shot, we were finishing up Abby and Matt's engagement session months ago and Matt had one last idea for a shot. yep, this was it, he did it for engagements and it's only right that we followed tradition for the wedding. Matt likes to call it "Bum is where the heart is" lol. I like his sense of humor.













Some of you may recall Heather. It was nice running into Heather :) She came to the reception with her twin sister Heidi and it was nice to chat a bit. Thanks Heidi for taking this awesome picture :)
