I don’t even know where to begin other than to say I am so grateful to have photographed Casey and Jake’s wedding at Malibu West Beach Club in Southern California. From the first series of exchanges with Casey after she found me on WeddingWire a year and a half ago, I knew they would be fun to work with. For starters, Casey and Jake are HUGE animal lovers with five cats and four dogs! All of which were portrayed as cupcake toppers at Casey and Jake’s wedding. (I even got to meet one of their dogs, Zoey, during their engagement session last summer!)
This day was full of personal touches and you could feel the love from everyone. From Casey’s sister who is a hair and make-up artist, who made sure Casey had the look she wanted to Casey’s mom was so sweet as she walked her daughter down the isle; and Jake’s mom who could not stop hugging her son and new daughter-in-law; the elements and people at their wedding were full of warmth. And those pretty little paper cranes for the backdrop of their ceremony–Casey made every single one of them by hand!
From the easy going first look to partying on the dance floor, Casey and Jake definitely made the most of every moment on their wedding day. They were more concerned about making sure everyone had fun celebrating with them over anything else. These two and all of their guests were laid back and full of good vibes, which we all know is right up my alley.
