Lucy and Jason united their LOVE in marriage on June 22, 2016 in the La Jolla Shores Hotel in La Jolla, CA. They live in my hometown of El Paso, TX and decided on a destination wedding. I was the very LUCKY photog they chose to shoot one of the most important and special days of their lives! It was truly an honor!
Only their immediate family was in attendance to witness their I DOs ! And what an AMAZING, beautiful, intimate wedding it was!! Their bridesmaid and groomsmen were their KIDS! I thought that was such a wonderful unique idea! What a wonderful way to incorporate their babies on their BIG day!
There were SOOOO many heartfelt emotional moments during this wedding ! A very memorable one was when the bride and groom decided to exchange gifts. They wanted to keep it traditional, so Jason can see his bride until she walked down the aisle. So, they stood on opposite sides of a window curtain to trade gifts. Jason wrote a letter to Lucy and immediate tears started streaming down her face as she read it! She kept saying "I normally don't cry! I'm not a cry-er!" Welp, needless to say, she definitely cried many tears of joy this day and she had many of us crying along with her!
They had a sand ceremony in which they included the kids as well. The "Blending of the Sands" ceremony was absolutely a beautiful and meaningful alternative to the " Unity Candle" ceremony. Like a Unity candle the pouring of different colored sands together is used to symbolize the joining of the bride and groom as well as the joining of their families.
THANK YOU so much Lucy & Jason for allowing me to be your photographer! Your wedding was STUNNING and I enjoyed being able to be a part of your BIG DAY! May God bless you both with a lifetime of happiness!
