Hazelnut Photography has completely made our day with this ode to vintage. It’s about as bright and cheerful as they come and filled with enough pretty flowers by Greenwich Floral to make any lover of Fall colors swoon. Then there are all the fun details: yarn wrapped letters, sassy heels, a vintage truck passed down from the Groom’s grandfather. Combined, these make for one smashing display of nuptials and we are happy as clams to get to spend our “workday” devouring every inch. Join us in the gallery for more.
From Hazelnut Photography…Jenn & Mike are the kind of people that you want to hug super hard and then put in your pocket so you’ll always have them with you. They are absolutely effervescent. They are sweet, they are kind and they are head over heels in love with each other. I have been looking forward to shooting Mike & Jenns’ wedding from her very first email to me.
I knew it would be extremely personal, and full of so much joy. Mike & Jenn are nature enthusiasts, their first date was a lake trip and they planned their wedding so that the anniversary would always fall on their big annual camping trip. So they wanted to be married, surrounded by mountains and nature. Maravilla Gardens lent the perfect backdrop. I knew that Jenn would want to incorporate as much of their personalities into the wedding as possible. My favorite personal touch, Mikes’ 1952 Chevy pickup. It was his grandfathers, bought fresh off the lot and driven across the country to Southern California in the early 1950s. Mike, his father and his brother have meticulously restored it and it made the perfect personal prop for our portrait session! Mike is a firefighter, so donations were made to the Los Angeles Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemans’ Fund in lieu of favors. Jenn is a teacher, so centerpieces included red apples.
It was a sweet & intimate affair, perfectly tuned to Mike & Jenns’ personalities. I’m so happy to share it with you!
