Mr. & Mrs. Bengard

I love Jamie and Erik.  I know I say this about all of my couples, but I’m so lucky that I really do love all of my couples!  And if you really knew me you know that I would never say anything that I didn’t mean.  Trust me!  

Jamie and Erik are both so animated, emotional, and hilarious!  They are totally made for each other.  When they are together they are constantly laughing at and with each other.  I love a guy who isn’t afraid to show his emotions and shed a tear or two.  I definitely saw Erik shed a couple of tears :) .  And just to give you an idea of how funny he is too, Erik walked down the aisle to “Another One Bites the Dust”.  Yeah, it was hilarious!  Jamie’s smile is as big as her heart.  She is a friend to everyone (which was evident by her 9 bridesmaids) and everyone who knows her is better for it.  While on the dance floor after their grand entrance she yelled, “I’m a Bengard!” and everyone started cheering.  It was so cute!  And now there are officially two Jamie Bengards!  My friend Jamie #1 (see post below) is now sister-in-law to this Jamie (Jamie #2).  How funny (and confusing) is that?

Jamie and Erik were married at the Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton.  It’s a gorgeous spot for a wedding!  They had my all time favorite detail at their wedding – a photo booth!  I’m not going to lie.  Jamie #1 and I totally snuck in for a few shots :)  I couldn’t resist.  Red Carpet Photo Booth did an awesome job and were a lot of fun to work with!  My all time favorite florist, Jenny B also did the flowers.  It was pretty much the perfect day!

Jamie and Erik, you know I love you guys!  It was seriously and honor to be chosen to capture your wedding day!  I hope you two had an amazing honeymoon in Costa Rica!  Here’s your slideshow!

All of the bridesmaids bouquets were different

Jamie’s bouquet had her grandmother’s handkerchief and necklace wrapped around it

Jamie’s Aunt was her Matron of Honor.  I thought that was really cool and really says something about how special their relationship is

The first look

Love this shot of Jamie’s parents watching

My favorite little ringebearer

There were lots of tears during the ceremony


I love toasts because they are a great way for me to learn even more about my couples.  Jamie and Erik’s toasts were particularly touching
