Jenn looked stunning in her all-Vera Wang ensemble and Scott is as cool as ever in his sharkskin gray suit. Jenn + Scott met at a lounge in La Jolla, CA not long after Jenn moved from NJ to San Diego, where each had gone out with 2 other friends and ended up pairing off and talking to each other the whole night. 4.5 years later, they tied the knot. When it was time to find a venue for their wedding, they wanted to find a place where they can be their laid-back selves and since they are very close to their familes they found the perfect setting at The Condor’s Nest Ranch. The ranch has a house that they stayed in for the weekend, surrounded by the great outdoors, nature’s beauty (even the view of the ocean), and gorgeous antiques: old tractors, greenhouse, vintage 50′s pool umbrellas, and the llamas, horses, and potbelly pigs. As she calls it, “truly a magical place!”.
Jenn gifted her bridesmaids with these amazing necklaces that she created herself. I can’t think of a more special gift. The girls were ecstatic. It was a lovely gathering of girls getting ready… the emotions were high and I could certainly feel the love.
As if that weren’t enough, the ceremony being short and sweet was filled with heartfelt vows and the type of love that is deep to the core. I had to clear my throat and dab my eyes a few times.
What a beautiful celebration it was. I was honored to have been part of it. Congrats to the lovely couple. I am so thrilled for you!
Special thanks to 2nd shooter Ed Atrero and assistant Gavin Gottfried.
