ali + nolan

Ali and Nolan's wedding was awesome! They are such a fun and laid-back couple, and I really enjoyed working with them AND their kids. This was my first time doing a wedding at either the Marston House Gardens or The Butcher Shop and I can say that both were excellent. The garden was a very serene spot situated in Balboa Park, and Mike and his team at The Butcher Shop made everything run very smoothly. Plus, the food was yummy!

Huge thanks to Melissa McClure for providing these photos- they are just gorgeous... it actually took me quite awhile to whittle down my favorites to an amount appropriate for a blog post. The black and white one {of Ali and Nolan's First Look} is easily one of my favorite photos of the season! So full of emotion, I just love it. I think it makes a good case for having a First Look.
