Flashback Fridays! Karen & Jeremy – the Wedding

November 18, 2010

Hi mcbloggies!

Thanks for hanging in there with us…we’re trying to get back to our ‘regularly scheduled programming’ here on the blog, so to help catch back up I’m starting Flashback Fridays! We have shoots we’ve been meaning to share for a LOOOOONGGGG time, so those will be the flashback posts, & we’ll share a bunch from this year too.

For those of you looking for more Landon posts, stay tuned because we’ll have some more next week! & for those of you looking for more photo shoot posts, also stay tuned because we really are making an effort to catch up. And for those of you looking for both, thanks for being a mcbloggie =)

Today we have Karen & Jeremy’s “garden vintage” themed wedding at the French Estate in Orange.
Karen & Jeremy are super fun & super chill – we really enjoyed getting to know them at their engagement shoot in Newport Beach, hanging out on their wedding day, & hearing about their adventures with their new puppy! They’re so thoughtful too, when they found out we were expecting they sent a gift for Landon, who we still referred to as “baby bean” at the time.

I started the day hanging out with Karen & the girls, & immediately noticed all of her attention to the details of the day. From her beautiful dress from Mon Amie, to the sweet out of town guest bags, everything was so thought out. Her lace & diamonds & choice of cream colored flowers perfectly fit her garden vintage look.

Karen & Jeremy opted to do a first look, which we loved! They planned their day of schedule with the photography in mind (LOVE!) & the first look allowed us to capture moments like the ones below, & also gave us a more relaxed time to take pictures of both the bride & groom, along with the entire wedding party.
The bridal party was lots of fun, & totally up for anything – even a bridal party crasher named Micah…
We walked around downtown Orange together, & Karen repeatedly said things like “stairs? Of course we can walk up stairs! Anything to make our photographers happy!” Seriously, making our jobs so easy! (And in the shot below, just another candid of the party having a…well… party!)
Details at the French Estate…
The ceremony was personalized with meaningful readings by Karen & Jeremy’s moms, & it was officiated by their good friend – the highlight was when the rings were dropped (momentarily) but found by the groomsmen! The bulk of the time was dedicated to the reception & dancing. Here’s their beautiful “First & Second Dance.”

I loved the special table details, like their letterpressed menus & fresh rosemary stems incorporated in the napkins and centerpieces!

They had given special remembrance to Karen’s late father, both in the ceremony & on their remembrance table. Karen also shared an emotional dance with an uncle in memory of her father.


The night ended with LOTS of dancing, music provided by their excellent DJ, Steve. Their friends love to party, & there were tons of fun pictures to choose from, but I made sure to choose the tame ones 😉
We’ll end with my absolute favorite image from the day – congrats Mr. & Mrs.!

    I was curious about if you ever thought of adstiujng the page layout of your web site? Its well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of content so people might connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two images. Maybe you can space it out better?

    This evening I did it your way! The fritters were great and very delicious. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. Instead of Sour cream I prepared a Dip with Crème fraîche, Salt, Curry, Soya Sauce and dried Chili. Have a nice weekend. Elke
