Cherie and Todd have a lovely cozy condo a block away from the beach. They have this super easy-going attitude that you can only see in a California beach town. This was easily one of the most relaxed weddings we have ever shot. My wife and I showed up at the condo, and just hang out with the couple and their loved ones all day long while documenting their beautiful beach ceremony followed by a casual yet fun reception.
As I mentioned, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful with the Pacific Ocean in the background. The soundtrack was provided by a live violin and the release of the butterflies was the photographic highlight for us.
We took advantage of the surroundings of The American Legion where the reception was held and go nuts on the couple portraits. Cherie chose a good amount of these photographs for her album.
The entire reception was full of love and full of fun. Cherie and Todd chose an aquatic theme and the decor of the venue was filled with serene and peaceful items from the ocean.
The cake was a beuatiful smaller than usual piece as the couple opted for cupcakes (all ocean and surfing themed).
Cherie & Todd, thank you for letting my wife and I document your wonderful day and may you live happily ever after!
