Candace & Justin - Los Angeles Summertime Wedding
If love could be personified, it would definitely come in the form of Candace & Justin, one of the sweetest and most beautiful couples I've had the pleasure of meeting. You can feel it in the way Justin looks at Candace, as Candace beams whenever Justin is near. This was such a magical, joyful day to witness, full of many happy tears and some of the biggest smiles. From getting ready to dancing the night away, it was the absolutely perfect day. The reception venue was actually C&J's plan B after their first choice had a double schedule, but it ended up being the icing on the cake for their romantic wedding day with its stunning interior & exterior spaces.
You can tell Candace and Justin are truly best friends, too. It's so special to witness two people who share such a deep bond get married. Throughout the entire day, my second shooter, Sarah, and I could feel the love and pure joy emanating from not only the couple, but also from those that surrounded them. Their wedding party, family, and friends really made the day even more special!
Looking back on this July day, it's so hard to pick a favorite moment, but I think the most special to witness was their first touch and private vows. The tears were flowing, but the smiles were big, leaving the photo and video team with goosebumps. It was such a pure & raw moment to see love shared in this way. In this moment, it was just the two of them. This moment set the precedent for the rest of the day, one of pure love, pure joy, and pure celebration. At the end of the night, my cheeks were hurting from smiling so much and my feet were hurting from all the dancing, but my heart felt so so full. This was the most perfect day, and I'm so lucky I got to witness it all.
