her best friend all growing up was her maid of honor – she was AWESOME – best maid of honor speech I have ever heard – I laughed and cried! I wish I could put it on here for you to read but she said the whole thing without reading! It was amazing!

Leah was so fun and happy the entire day – always laughing and smiling …I love her maid of honor trying not to cry here…

First look – probably one of my favorite parts of the day – I think it really is a great thing to do – it calms wedding jitters – it give the couple a chance to be alone and hug and talk – the rest of the day goes so fast – I just love this moment…Derrick cried the moment he saw her – I really think he was struck by how beautiful she was/is to him – inside and out…Seriously – it was very touching…can’t believe I got to be a part of it (off to the side of course!)

Hey Tracy, Where were all of these before pictures taken at? I love Coronado - my fiance and I are thinking of getting married at Candelas and I would love the same area for before shots!! :) Thanks!!

Some were at hotels, some at the Del. they had a limo driver drive us around as there is a lot of traffic in Coronado and no parking. Do you need a photographer?

Christina August 23, 2012 at 4:16 PM  

Thanks, Tracy! We are going to look at Candelas this weekend, so we are hopeful we will fall in love and our search will be over! Finding a venue isn't at all easy! Thank you for your help! We have already decided on a photographer though. We love your work though! Thank you for asking :-)
