Marie And Sean | The Prado

Apr 20, 2012

Some images from a gorgeous Spring wedding at The Prado… Marie and Sean are a really relaxed, low-key couple who are obviously head over heals in love.  They planned an afternoon wedding in beautiful Balboa Park on a gorgeous Spring day.  Their decor was amazing! They incorporated a lot of old books into their center pieces and even made paper flowers from the pages.  Since they are both teachers and lovers of theater, this was perfect.  Another touch I loved…Marie had fabric from her Mother’s lace wedding dress added to her own dress. The neckline was absolutely gorgeous!  There were so many sweet, handmade touches at this wedding.  For their first dance, they danced to “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” but an incredibly sweet version by Ingrid Michaelson.  I felt like this song was just so fitting for them… understated, authentic, simply and absolutely lovely.  Best wishes to this lovely couple!  I can tell they are going to continue to be very, very happy together.

Stunning.I absolutely love the way her fingers are delicately reaching for her veil…Dapper.Officiants are using iPads!Walking down the aisle.Father of the groom…The wedding partyThe bike was kind of their mascot for the wedding, as it could be seen on their invitations, programs, etc.  So cute!Books are works of art filled with stories, history, knowledge… Why not use them as centerpieces? What a cool idea.A globe…another great decorative piece with lots of meaning…Paper flowers made from the pages of books!Check out that beautiful light.Last dance of the day.Our mobile photo studio, Snapshot Studios, was a huge hit!

    Every picture was thrilling to me. I am Marie’s Great Aunt, and so very proud of her. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Sean yet, but know he’s wonderful just by her choosing him. I was unable to make the wedding due to illness, and am very excited to see all of the pictures. My favorite one is with her Mom, Kendra (my niece). She has always been like a daughter to me, and to see them in that picture brings me great joy. The Dasteels are a beautiful family.
