Californos had the pleasure of hosting a very special wedding ceremony & reception for some dear friends. Lauren & Josh were married in the Ballroom of our historic trolley barn with 150 of their closes friends and family in attendance. The meeting of these two is pure serendipity at play! They compliment each other in so many ways, it was a joyous moment for all involved, to see these two join up as a team as they move forward in life together. Another dear friend of both the bride and the Burns family of Californos, Andrea DeLong, was present to capture a thousand precious moments, such as this one - taken seconds before the groom got to see Lauren in her dress.
Lauren and Josh took a ton of amazing pictures with their wedding party. You can explore those images in detail on Andrea DeLong Photgraphy Blog. Look for the post on Lauren & Josh at Californos - August 27, 2016. These portraits were taken beneath the sycamore trees on Californos expansive back patio.
The wedding ceremony images of Lauren & Josh's event are quite nice, but the moment at the end, where Josh picked Lauren up and kissed her was memorable for everyone, as you can see on their faces, it was a bit of a pleasant surprise! He's a true romantic! Please check out more shots from their first dance, which was a very fun moment, and those images are terrific for seeing the back of Lauren's beautiful wedding gown. I liked this one very much, for the earring swinging and the pleasant gaze as they bride revels in the moment.
