Photographing the Essex wedding was such an honor! Stephanie, the bride, and her family have been long-time family friends and it was such a joy working with her and her family on such a wonderful occasion. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Kevin, the groom, and seeing how sweet he is with Stephanie. They were both glowing with smiles all day. The couple exchanged their vows surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends, even their chocolate lab buddy was present, with his bow tie of course. The weather was perfect for a rooftop wedding at Laguna’s, La Casa Del Camino, it was a gorgeous day surrounded by beautiful people. Lastly, I must mention the beautiful invitations designed by the bride herself, as well as the custom place cards and place card numbers designed by Stephanie’s daughter Raven, who is quite the artist, goodness these women are so talented! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Essex!
