Cherie & Todd's Casual Beach Wedding

Cherie and Todd have a lovely cozy condo a block away from the beach.  They have this super easy-going attitude that you can only see in a California beach town. This was easily one of the most relaxed weddings we have ever shot.  My wife and I showed up at the condo, and just hang out with the couple and their loved ones all day long while documenting their beautiful beach ceremony followed by a casual yet fun reception.

As I mentioned, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful with the Pacific Ocean in the background. The soundtrack was provided by a live violin and the release of the butterflies was the photographic highlight for us.

The wedding ceremony had a butterfly release and it was absolutely breathtaking to capture.

We took advantage of the surroundings of The American Legion where the reception was held and go nuts on the couple portraits.  Cherie chose a good amount of these photographs for her album.

The f1.4 aperture provides an extra shallow depth of field, which in turns create a dreamy blur on the picture.  This may not be ideal for large prints, yet it is the intended result of this photographer's approach.

A much needed calm moment before the reception shenanigans start.

The entire reception was full of love and full of fun.  Cherie and Todd chose an aquatic theme and the decor of the venue was filled with serene and peaceful items from the ocean.

The cake was a lovely smaller than usual piece as the couple opted for cupcakes (all ocean and surfing themed).

A relatively small cake on top, for the couple to cut and bunch of cupcakes all around.
After the couple cut the cake, they had a little moment to themselves.

Cherie & Todd, thank you for letting my wife and I document your wonderful day and may you live happily ever after!
