Dustin & Melissa – Valley Center Wedding

I have been looking forward to shooting Dustin and Melissa’s wedding since their engagement session last November. They are so much fun and Sean and I absolutely loved working with them!

The wedding was absolutely beautiful! Loved the colors, florals… just everything. It was a perfect DIY backyard style, and I just can’t get enough of those!

I laughed more than I have in a long time because everyone was so incredibly wonderful, and full of joy. There was SUCH a downpour of love and support for Dustin and Melissa. They are truly a match made in heaven. Melissa was hollywood beautiful and Dustin was as GQ as can be… seriously… this man knows how to pose! You’ll see… ;-)

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!!

Photo time. :-)

Love Melissa’s big smile!

The girls praying for Melissa before she walks down the aisle. SO sweet.

I love these candid shots of Melissa, just before walking down the aisle. She just exudes happiness.

Just married!

Melissa… give me a break with how gorgeous you are!

This little girl pushed through crowds of people just to hug Melissa who  “looked like a princess”… SO sweet!

Dustin, you go!

The light was scrumptious!!

Love these chandeliers that hung in the trees all over the reception site.

One of Melissa’s bridesmaids made their guestbook. Each of the guests could write a note and place it in one of the envelopes. Each of the envelopes had a unique quote on it… how fun and personal! I love stuff like that.

I don’t know why but photos taken during the cake cutting are always some of my favorites!

I’ll end with these two of Dustin and Melissa dancing. I feel like these sum up the wedding quite well, they are just so in love and you can see it.
