A delightful wedding and reception for Theresa and Jason at Wedgwood Wedding & Banquet Center at the Golf Club of California, located in Fallbrook in North San Diego County. I had the pleasure of capturing the wonderful day and created a thorough collection of Fallbrook wedding photography for the couple. From getting ready through their ceremony, creative photos and portraits, reception and on to the last dance of the evening. The wedding photos captured each moment of joy that the couple and each of their guests experienced.
This was actually my second time photographing the couple. Several months early the three of us got together to create their engagement wedding photography session at Presidio Park near downtown San Diego. Like that first session, their Fallbrook wedding photography was also fun and creative. And like all of the weddings I shoot, their photography was thorough because it resulted in a photo gallery shot in true wedding phot0-documentatary style.
The getting ready portion of the Fallbrook wedding photography captured the latter part of Theresa’s getting ready, as well as the final setup of the ceremony and reception areas of the venue. It’s fun to see how venues evolve in getting ready, just as it’s fun and important to photograph the getting ready of the couple.
The getting ready was followed by a first look between Theresa and Jason. With the greens and trees of the golf course making for a very pleasant backdrop, this special moment when Jason got to see his bride Theresa for the first time in her wedding dress made for an important series of photos. Performing a first look before the ceremony not only made for a special intimate moment in the Fallbrook wedding photography, it also allowed us to create most of the family portraits before the ceremony. Capturing important family photos before the ceremony instead of afterwards meant the couple were able to celebrate with their guests right away after the ceremony.
Theresa and Jason’s ceremony took place outdoors on a nice patio with the golf course serving as the backdrop. The architecture and decor added nice charm to the couple’s wedding ceremony. The ceremony itself was very well officiated and had the couple each reading their own vows, as well the sharing of a sand ceremony. After the ceremony we took a moment to capture a group photo, an important shot for remembering the day and everyone who was present to celebrate with the couple.
A cocktail hour followed the ceremony, which not only allowed for some fun before the reception, but also time for guests to write private messages to the couple on their storyboard. After the hour-long mingling it was time for the reception. The reception lasted about 4 hours and featured the couple’s grand entrance, first dance, an excellent meal, toasts, fathers-daughter dances, mother-son dance, bouquet toss, and the cutting of the lovely wedding cake.
The evening’s DJ and MC kept the schedule nicely on track, and he also played an excellent selection of music. During the evening of Fallbrook wedding photography, many great candid shots were created, as well as more many combinations of posed photos of the couple with their family and friends.
Featured in this article about the couple’s Golf Club of California Fallbrook wedding photography are a few of my favorites from their session. To see their complete collection of wedding photos please visit my San Diego Wedding Photographer Client Galleries (password required).
With so many great shots in the couple’s collection the very best way for them to really enjoy them will be in a beautiful custom, Italian-made wedding albums. And that’s just what Theresa and Jason will receive as part of their wedding photography package, and gorgeous wedding book with 50 of their favorite photos, plus a couple of copies of the book to give to family! Their package also includes a vivid Metal Print a favorite photos, multiple copies of their digital photos, as well as a collection of traditional prints, too.
