Mr and Mrs Smith

Allison and Ryan were married on September 25.  Which also happened to be one of the hottest days of the year.  Good thing they were married in Laguna Beach.  It was only in the low nineties there.  They were married at the Surf and Sand Resort.  It was fun taking their pictures there because that happens to be the hotel where I got ready and took my pictures on my wedding day.  We’ve spent a lot of our anniversaries there and even our babymoon :)

Besides all the beautiful details of the day, I loved the emotions.  Allison was a little nervous before the ceremony.  But, it was a good nervous.  I just love when you can feel how excited a bride is to see her groom for the first time.  When you can sense that this is the day she’s been waiting for her entire life.  I love when the groom is just as nervous as the bride.  And I love it when they see each other for the first time and all the nerves go out the window and you can sense their relief that they are so happy to be together.

Allison picked so many of my favorite vendors for her wedding day!  I was so very excited to finally get a chance to work with Treasured Petal.  Their flowers are amazing!

Allison’s niece was the cutest.  Their relationship is really special.  You can just tell she adores Allison!  She was probably the most excited flower girl I’ve ever seen.

Both Allison’s dad and Ryan were in the Marines.  They wore their Marine Corps dress blues and I love how the colors pop!

Both Allison and Ryan were very emotional before and during the ceremony.  Ryan was trying so hard not to cry :)  It was very sweet.

Yes.  Ryan cut the cake with his sword!  And it’s a real sword.  I asked.  It could cut you.
