Liz and Dave have an undeniable connection that is obvious the moment they look into each others eyes. We saw it immediately at their engagement session and we couldn’t wait to be part of their summer wedding day! It was a beautiful June day that began with the Dave at the Hilton Garden Inn in Rancho Bernardo. Dave was all smiles and so were his men, all ready to celebrate and flirt with the camera. We met Liz and her ladies at her parents home, first capturing all the girls in their floral robes and then watching Liz transform into a bride from head to toe. Their ceremony was held at St Mary’s Catholic Church and once everyone was in place, Liz was escorted by her father in a traditional Scottish Kilt. Liz and Dave’s smiles were beaming from the moment at the aisle, all the way until their first kiss. And, Father Gallagher who married Liz’s parents also married Liz and Dave. He even gave an “a-okay” to the parents after the first kiss. Inspired by corals, pinks, roses and nature, Twin Oaks Garden Estate had just the feel and vibe that this couple wanted for their celebration. The guests were first greeted with a charming antique dresser with photos of the couple and a unique guest globe to sign, first time we had seen this and love the idea! Around the corner were fun outdoor games, cornhole, a giant Jenga and more! The evening continued with toasts, a fun dance between the bride and her dad, followed by a surprise performance from Dave singing Frank Sinatra’s “I Get a Kick Out of You”! Guests packed the dance floor and the photo booth too! We even snuck out with the couple for a few night shots highlighting the beautiful lighting at the venue. Their day was perfection and we will let the photos do the talking from here – there are so many photos!
