{REAL WEDDING} LOVE AT AN AVOCADO ORCHARD…

i am always proud of my photog friends.  i love that we get together in person and giggle about the silliest things.  i love that they have been there for me and keep me distracted from this misfortune of last year.  but i love them especially more when they share an avid love of Harry Potter and even had the piano player greet me with the Harry Potter theme song when they came to pick me up from the airport once.  Lia Cecaci, i will always thank you for that moment as it still remains as one of the best moments of my life ever.  but i digress, always proud of my photog friends including this one.

this sweet gem of a wedding is brought to you by Lia Cecaci from

OH, HONESTLY:

Jenny & Bryan, August 10th 2013. Somis, California. On a family friend’s Avocado Orchard. 

Jenny was one of my best friends through middle & high school. Although we didn’t stay close, we always kept in touch via social networks. Usually, you want to ignore and steer clear of most people from high school, and I’m glad that this wasn’t ever the case with us!

When I found out she was getting married, immediately I claimed the spot as photog. Via instagram comment, obviously.

She’s gorgeous, and her day was so very HER. From the tea length retro styled dress, shoes & hair do; to the organic orchard of a venue! I was just stoked to be apart of her day even after so many years.
Even the smallest of details of the day reflected her lifestyle. From the Organic & Vegan meal choices to the bamboo forks & knifes atop the matching bamboo plates.
The soundtrack? Spice-Girls to Backstreet Boys, then around again from Elvis to Chaka Kahn. I can’t even.”

 forever grateful for Lia, not just for her sending me her work to share on the blog, but for her friendship.  head on over HERE for more of this wedding and then stick around on OH, HONESTLY’S SITE too.

{REAL WEDDING} LOVE AT KANSAS CITY’S THE GUILD…

always thankful to have the work of

WALDRON PHOTOGRAPHY CO.

on the blog.  many thanks to Rusty for always sending such amazing work over.

“I’ve known Jared since the early nineties, when all we cared about was action figures & wrestling each other. We lived together when he & Stephanie began dating. We’ve been alongside each other for many an adventure, both for fun & for work. And somewhere along the line of watching him & Stephanie – and more importantly because of their graciousness – we all decided that I would bring my camera along on their wedding day. Jared & Stephanie worked together to design their wedding from top to bottom – from their hand-lettered invitations, to the letterpressed (designed & pressed by Jared) coasters, to the custom-designed Kansas City posters given as gifts to guests. I can say this. I see & experience weddings – and life, for that matter – a bit differently through a viewfinder. I like that. I was grateful on their wedding day, and I’m even more grateful here & now to have been just a small part & a witness to it all. The result was one of the funner weekends I’ve had, & a stack of pictures of which I’m more proud than most.”
