Los Willows Fallbrook Wedding – Emily + AJ Married!
You may recognize these two. They had a beautiful engagement session on the beach, and AJ dressed in style with red pants and suspenders, while emily coordinated in the cutest white dress! AJ is a very close friend of my husband Justin, so naturally the four of us do double date movie nights when we can! I was so blessed and honored when Emily emailed me and asked if I would capture this day for them!
Emily and AJ were high school sweethearts, and though their paths separated for sometime while they were young, they quickly learned that life was better together. Their commitment to each other withstood Emily’s ventures to Europe for a study-abroad trip as well as AJ’s year away for the military. It was evident to all of their friends and family that they had built a friendship that was going to be carried into a marriage, so when AJ and Emily announced that they were engaged, no one was surprised! The amount of love and support that was felt at their wedding was evident, as their close loved ones shared how strong their relationship was to withstand the time apart.
Emily started a relaxing and cheerful morning with her closest friends. They looked so cute in their waffle robes! Emily was telling me how they are so much more comfortable than the silk in the hot weather; I had no clue! You learn something new everyday. 🙂
I love this photograph below of Emily with her own mother on the right and her new mother by marriage (AJ’s mom) on the left. How sweet of her to get the moms robes, too!
Emily and her closest girlfriends looked so great in the dusty rose color she chose with the soft greens of her wedding venue!
AJ’s gray suit looked fantastic standing next to all of his groomsmen in black. I love it with the groom wears a slightly different color to stand out from all of the other guys, and gray is a personal favorite!
I will be forever proud of this photo. AJ pretty much never smiles with his teeth (and he has such a nice smile!) so Emily was saying all day how much she just wanted one of his great smile. I got more than just this!!! And you look great AJ!
Emily and AJ chose to have their wedding ceremony in front of the lake. Just wait until you see her entrance!
Cutest little brother and sister! Only one of them made it down the aisle. 🙂
The song changed for Emily to make her way to AJ. After a short pause, everyone was wondering where she was. We all turned around to see she was coming in from the lake behind AJ!
Look at how excited the best man is to see his closest friend smile as his bride walks to him. Aww!
They’re married! So much excitement. AJ just picks up his new wife with happiness!
Seriously! Look at this cute little face! Cutest ring bearer award.
After the ceremony, AJ and Emily ran off to the boat for a toast and their wedding party lined up to watch them make a quick loop around the lake!
SMILES!!!! You guys seriously look amazing. Emily, I hope you frame this!
Recognize these two?! They just got married a couple weeks ago, too! First wedding together as a married couple! I may have jumped on the dance floor to do the wobble with Yuliza. And I may have attempted to salsa with her. (She laughed at me. I must not have done it very well…)
That’s my husband! And Yuliza’s! And now Emily’s! And of course Chris, who we all love.
Too much cuteness to handle in one day. This is totally Emily and AJ – silly and full of fun. Thank you guys for having both myself and Justin at the wedding! We wouldn’t have missed it for the world, but getting to capture it was even more amazing!
