Ashley and Aaron’s intimate wedding day at Luce Loft was a beautiful celebration of their relationship. These two chose to be surrounded by only their closest family and friends.
We met the ladies at a chic condo in downtown San Diego to photograph the last hour of preparation. Once Ashley was dressed, we headed over to Balboa Park for their formal portraits and first look. While we were waiting on the rest of the family to arrive, I led Ashley and Aaron into the heart of the park where dense, tropical vegetation grows. Aaron waited patiently at the bottom of the steps as I went to fetch his bride. As soon as I said I was going to get her, Aaron’s eyes started getting misty. There is no question about how much he loves Ashley. His tears fell freely the rest of the day.
Their ceremony altar at Luce Loft was accented with greenery and air plants, a perfect compliment to the industrial vibe of the space. We frolicked around the streets of the Gaslamp in the dusky twilight, twirling and laughing under the market lights. An echoing room of cheerful guests and gourmet sliders from the food truck outside greeted us when we returned.
A day straight out of a dream. Congratulations Aaron & Ashley!
