I first met Janae over a cup of coffee in Cayucos and almost immediately knew that getting to capture her special day was going to be awesome. Meeting Michael at Tasha and John’s wedding only confirmed everything when he and Janae came up to me (maybe slightly inebriated) and couldn’t contain their excitement for their upcoming wedding. Let’s just say that if I lived in the valley, I think we’d be great friends ‘cause these two are some of the most fun, life-loving and generous people you’ll meet.
The wedding was held at the Annadale Equine Center in Sanger, CA and I can’t think of a more perfect location for these two to celebrate their love. We started shooting video and photos with Michael and his guys over in the horse stalls and then met up with Janae in the bridal suite. Both of them were so excited to see the other and I remember actually getting impatient for the ceremony to start just so Michael could see his bride. The anticipation didn’t disappoint as the doors opened and Michael set eyes on his soon-to-be wife. The ceremony was awesome; filled with laughter, tender vows and tears of joy. I can’t even begin to tell you how perfect these two are for each other… they just work so great together and I know they’re in for a lifetime of making amazing memories.
Following the ceremony was a reception of epic proportions and I don’t use those terms lightly. Rochelle from The Social Spree coordinated everything for 400 guests (yeah, you read that right) and hit a grand slam. She assembled an all-star team that pulled off an evening that was nothing short of perfection. From heartfelt toasts and first dances to elaborate dessert tables and late-night wood-fired pizzas, this wedding had it all. I hope as you get to look through the images and watch their video, you get the cozy feels we did capturing and editing it. Enjoy!
