What an incredible day this was! There were many elements that made this day so incredible; one being the location. Rancho Valencia is so relaxed and private, and it really feels like you’re a world away. The spanish style architecture is my favorite. I just love the textures of the tiles, wood, and terra cotta along with the rich, earthy tones. It’s down to earth and elegant at the same time; just stunning. This day actually happened to be the one random day in August that it rained in San Diego (which never happens). Luckily, Carrie and Kye chose a venue that has gorgeous architecture, so we were able to stay dry while still shooting in amazing locations with beautiful scenery. Because of the way the buildings were designed, we were able to still be outside and benefit from the natural light while staying under cover.
The second and most important element that contributed to this day being so amazing was the people. Carrie and Kye are an energetic, fun-loving pair, as you can see from their engagement session. Their friends and family were equally energetic (as you will see here), and it made for an incredible party. So much fun was had by all, and this party was off the hook. What a great way to start your married life together. Congratulations Carrie and Kye!
