Gennie and Chris’s wedding was planned completely over the phone and through email. The first time that I actually met the couple face-to-face was on their wedding day. A little stressful, but I discovered quickly they were both great people and easy to work with so everything went well. Their ceremony was in a nice traditional church in Yucaipa. I loved the soft lighting and tried to utilize that rather than blast everything with a strobe. After the ceremony, we moved to the reception at Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley.
Both Gennie and Christopher work in law enforcement, so they came up with this unique cake-top. I love the pistols that the two figures are holding and that they’ve got each other’s back.
Sometime during the reception, Gennie ditched her high-heels in exchange for her comfortable Converse high-tops. I really liked the dichotomy of her elegant wedding dress paired with the dirty tennis-shoes, so I made sure to feature this in a couple of pix.
