No matter what, I always make a trip to scout out every one of my couples' wedding venues before their big day - just to become super familiar with the lay of the land and also the light during the time when we will be shooting. This way, we are super prepared ahead of time for the wedding day and have that much more time for more awesomeness :) ! I also always invite my couples to join me if they wish, so we can walk the venue together and talk about what is important to them and what they like!
Today's scout was with one of my super cool couples, Sunshine & Ken :D!
Firstly, my goodness what is not to like about someone named Sunshine?
Her name makes me so happy Lol! And she totally lives up to it. Just when I thought it couldn't get any more cute, she told me that it was her Grandpa who started calling her Sunshine right after she was born, while he was holding her at the hospital. It’s what everyone has been calling her since :) . Super cool.
After visiting their family church where they will be having their ceremony (Ken is making their aisle runner himself - how awesome is that? I told him he can basically run sewing-circles around me LOL), and then the Richard Nixon Library where their reception will be held, they wanted to take me to the Anaheim Packing House for a bite to eat! I had never been there before, and I must say it's really cute!
Just wanted to shout out and thank you both for a very awesome afternoon! Cannot wait for your wedding guys!!!
Much <3, & thank you again for the seriously fun scouting trip :) ,
