San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

The first time Amanda & I had a chance to talk about her engagement and wedding photography, we agreed it had to be unique and colorful. With the fair in town, it was the perfect location for their engagement session at the fair! A month later, Amanda & Chris were married at their church not far from where the fairgrounds are located. Amanda’s dress was classic with a gorgeous long train perfect for a church wedding!

Even though Amanda & Chris had a more traditional ceremony, the reception was definitely a reflection of their colorful and outgoing personalities! Amanda’s love of gerber daisies became the theme and the decor was vibrant and full of spring! The wedding was coordinated by Alpha & Omega Event Consultants, who Amanda & Chris actually introduced me to.

The most eventful part of the evening was the cake cutting. Everything was going nicely. They held hands as they cut the cake. They fed pieces to each other, keeping in mind the agreement they had not to smash the cake in each other’s faces. The next thing you know Amanda smashes the cake in Chris’s face and bolts out the door! Chris reaches his hand into the cake, grabs a handful and chases after her. When we next see them, their faces are covered in cake!!! It instantly became the new “Best Cake Cutting Ever” in my book! It topped previous smashings of cake in the face and even topped the previous week’s cake cutting by samurai sword!

Here I thought we knew the story. It looked like Amanda was the one who initiated the cake fight, but photographic evidence points to the contrary! Chris tipped the cake onto Amanda’s nose, just getting a little icing on her. Then it was ON! Any couple who has a cake fight and is still smiling in the end is definitely going to have much happiness in their lives!

Amanda & Chris, we’re so happy for you both! Congratulations!!

    Oh my gosh!! I love the one before last.. I didnt have the courage to smash John’s face with cake!! that picture is awesome!!!

    Haha! They completely shocked us all with the cake fight! Such a fun couple!

    I manually created the collage. It would probably be easier to buy a template but it doesn’t take very long to do on my own. Did you buy any from them? I’d love to get your opinion about using them…

    Gwen and Matt did an awesome job. I literally could not have asked for a better Photographer. I can’t wait to see the rest.

    Thanks sweetie!! Trust me, there are tons more photos to come! These are just a few favorites! : )

  5. Matt says:

    The ring shot in the flower and the closeup of the pearls are my favorites. I love detail shots like those. But the smashing of the cake in the faces! Wow! That was so funny and spontaneous!

  6. […] always get so excited when we get referrals from past clients! We first met Ashley when we shot her sister Amanda’s wedding back in May. And Amanda was referred to us by one of our 2008 brides, Kaci, so we are just excited […]
