Aaron & Keri Married! | San Diego Wedding Photographer

Well, before I start....BEWARE! Long post! :) There were so many great photos from their wedding...I just couldn't choose!

Aaron and Keri are such amazing people. They are the definition of the 'do-it-yourselfer'. I can't tell you how many professions Aaron has had already in his young lifetime. He just cracks me up. Let me just tell you this...we'd call him for our gardening questions, or when we need our hardwood floors replaced, or when I need to know what roller rink I should have my next birthday party at or which fish would survive in my fresh water tank....and if I ever get a dog...I definitely would know who to hire! Mr. 'I have my own dog training company'. ;) I love it!

Well, when it came to planning their wedding...they were in true form and did everything themselves! Ah-Mazing! They really did an incredible job. You can always tell a good wedding by how much fun your guests are having...and I don't think I've seen a party go down like this in awhile! :)

They were married at the Mission Bay Hyatt. A few details from getting ready:





I love this picture of Keri's dad admiring her from a distance...



There are so many beautiful portraits of Keri!





This is one of my favorites...



Loved her bouquet! Ah...ranunculus...one of my favorite flowers! (They also used gerbers...my other favorite flower!)







I really loved the colors in this wedding. They were so bright and cheery!







And da boyz...
I love this series of Aaron.







And...another thing I love...LIGHT! Not just any light...but fun light! :) Got to use my new video light in these two shots. So fun!











Time for the ceremony where they also added some really great unique touches...



Such as the flower pups!







Aaron made the huppah and it looked so great with the water as its background...





They saw each other before the ceremony so we had plenty of time for some awesome portraits!









This next one is hanging in my office...giant canvas! I just love it! Can't wait to show you guys! :)



Look how great the Ballroom looked. Again, it was all of their handy work. They did such a great job putting everything together.







AND...one of the best things about that night...when Aaron and Keri had first met with me, he told me that he only cared about all of his guy friend being there, the open bar, and being able to break dance for the crowds. Well, he did it!!! :)

But, before he could strut his stuff...Keri first had to show him what he was up against... ha ha! :)





It truly was amazing...I'm so glad that I was able to witness it!

Congratulations you two! I'm so happy for you and can't wait for you to see your album! :)
