This Arroyo Trabuco Wedding is the definition of rustic, folksy, and all around the cutest outdoor wedding!! It has a vibrant colored bouquet, Moroccan rugs that lead down the aisle, stringed lights, and pampas grass galore! When you think of a golf course wedding, you would NOT think of this day, but the entire team made it happen in such a brilliant and beautiful way.
The Bride and Groom
Kyler and Stacey Jackson are badass entrepreneurs and small business owners. They are also two down to earth human beings with hearts of gold. Stacey had her dream wedding envisioned and she saw it come to life this day. She knew she wanted stringed lights for her reception (THIS HAPPENS TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TOO). I love to play with the lights at night during the mega dance party, it creates the coolest images! Anyway, she also really wanted rugs and pampas grass. Her florist and a rental company made the dream an ultimate reality, it fit perfectly you guys.
Arroyo Trabuco Wedding Venue
I absolutely love photographing outdoor weddings because I am at the mercy of natural light — my favorite light source. The sun guides me and it is always perfection. I have mastered all lighting situations and so it is fun to photograph in any condition! Whether it be a sunny day or a cloudy one, and the darkness of the night that encompasses the dance party, it can all be beautifully photographed if done so correctly.
I also love to sit with my couples a few months before the big day to create a timeline that takes the sunlight into consideration for the details of the day, the ceremony, and the reception. I like putting my input to help and ensure the best light for the points of the day. Then they take this timeline to their planner and they create the ultimate wedding timeline for the day, and we go based on that!
