Congratulations to Cindy and Brandon on their beautiful wedding day! These two are an incredible couple, and you could feel the love not only between the two of them but from all of their family and friends which made their wedding day all that more special and meaningful. The toasts made by their best man and maid of honor affirmed what we had experiences about the kind and authentic nature of Cindy and Brandon. Cindy and Brandon’s Carlsbad Wedding was held at a beautiful venue, The Crossings at Carlsbad. The golf course was the perfect place for an outdoor wedding in Carlsbad, and the weather was perfect for their outdoor wedding ceremony.
Brandon and Cindy granted us full artistic license to shoot anywhere their timeline would allow us to shoot, which made for some great sunset couple pictures, wedding portraits, and candid wedding party photos. We found a great spot off the beaten path for some couple and wedding party photos where we could utilize the view, skyline, and quality of light coming from the sun. Later in the day we took the golf carts out and were able to use the long shadows at sunset for and a more dramatic, creative photograph of the couple out on the course next to a tree.
Wedding Reception Ideas
For their reception they decided book one of our Snapshot Studio Booths (a photo booth rental). We brought our classic photo booth props as well as our high powered fan for a special touch. Almost every person at the wedding reception used the booth (once, twice… or ten times) throughout the night. Another great wedding reception idea that was a tasty hit with their guests was the onsite, made to order doughnuts by Sensational Treats.
Be sure to also checkout their wedding wedding slideshow.
