Matt + Lauren Part 3 | Admiral Kidd Club | Temecula Valley Wedding Photographer

Click for: Part 1  and  Part 2


Romantics, Ceremony and Reception… yes…it’s long!


We took pictures at the hotel before…did the first look and then went to the ceremony site and fortunately took more pictures!  You will know why I say fortunately when we get to the ceremony part of this post.  Jessy and Emma were awesome and took many pictures alongside me.

The ceremony…..


Is this okay to admit on the blog? The pastor was late….this next picture  is Matt explaining to everyone…It was sweet and funny – Everyone knew neither of them were backing out!  The wedding was to start at 5:00 p.m….I think it started at 5:40 OR So which was sunset….I pumped up my ISO and also used my flash when I had to… So excuse all the different lighting…Some are regular at high ISO, some are flash – I love them all :)


It’s about 5::25  here (I know because my camera says – ha ha)  and sunset was at 5:40 so it was getting pretty dark….This is taken with no flash…Isn’t the city awesome in the background?

We took this while we were waiting for the pastor…everyone was seated on the other side so they didn’t see Lauren.  I loved how she didn’t want to to see anyone until the ceremony.  The light was going but we got a good one:  This is her beautiful Mom – who did all the amazing design and details of the day.

Oh here he is!  He was hilarious!  Max, Lauren’s dad said, “get a picture of the late pastor!!”…so I did :)

The pastor was awesome and totally good natured…made everyone feel at ease. There was a lot of traffic getting to the venue…He had everyone laughing when he came up….Made for a fun ceremony!

M&L Ceremony   029j rep

How awesome is this guy????  He and another stood at attention the whole ceremony – well maybe that is not the right term.  He stood nice and still…That’s Matt’s mom on the right – she is as nice and sweet as Matt!

OH he kills me!  That smile!  and he has perfect teeth…

M&L Ceremony   041j rep


There is no texture on this picture – it’s just how high the ISO Had to be due to the light or lack of it – I think it looks like a painting.  This little was was soooo cute – she is only two years old….They tried to bribe her coming down the aisle but in the end her mom carried her…

M&L Ceremony   043j rep


Here comes the BEAUTIFUL bride…It’s fun to look through all the pictures…Lauren did NOT take her eyes from Matt’s the entire way down the aisle – she has eyes ONLY for him – it was so sweet.  The entire time – we take continuous pictures and she never moved her eyes from his.M&L Ceremony   059j rep

Matt looking at Lauren…

How cool are the swords?????  They did it for everyone entering….Matt watched her the entire time as well…I LOVE weddings!

Matt looked so intently at Lauren’s father – so respectful…so sweet.  This was Max’s first daughter married…I know it must be hard for a daddy to let the first baby go…well probably any daughter!

Looking for the ring…fortunately I have seen this trick before – they had her ring the whole day…I couldn’t’ even take pictures of it earlier so I did have a second of “oh no!”M&L Ceremony   105j rep

There were lots of special dances…This is Matt’s Nana – I loved this woman – she was so awesome the whole day and night – she took amazing pictures everywhere she went and was as sweet as can be…no wonder she got a special dance!
