What a perfect day for a backyard wedding! Actually the wedding of Kelley and Jared was held on the beach in Corona Del Mar, California but the beautiful reception was back in Costa Mesa at their home. We stared the day in Costa Mesa for getting ready shots and right after that our wonderful spontaneous bride decided that it awesome to go for a jump in a bounce house that was setting up across the street for a birthday party. Of course she was right! The photos from the bounce house were indeed awesome! We soon may our way down to the beach for the ceremony. Our biggest challenge that day was the bright beach sun but we found a way to minimize the brightness to get some great shots. Then it was off to their home for the reception. Kelley and Jared’s friend Kim and Sarah from the Love Riot handled all the coordinating, table decor, place cards, and lots of wonderful personal touches. Congratulations on your new lives together as husband and wife! Thanks for having us be there.
