ALEX & MALIA | 5.17.19
Malia and Alex’s wedding at the Estate at Farrington Lake was truly a magical day. Our bride looked like a real-life princess in her gorgeous ballgown dress. We started the day in the newly renovated bridal cottage while everyone got ready. The maid of honor, Stacey Stratton was also one of our stylists for the day and our bridesmaids looked like they stepped out of a movie. The gorgeous natural light in the cottage gave us the perfect place to capture some truly elegant bridal portraits.
Outside, there is a picturesque path overlooking the lake that which we scouted as the perfect spot for shooting our couple’s first look. When Alex was finally allowed to turn around and see his bride, he was blown away by how beautiful Malia looked. We spent some time out on the path and in the woods with our couple and then with the bridal party. Malia and Alex’s sweet boxer, Lola even joined in for some photos. The impressive trees provided the perfect backdrop to this fairy tale wedding.
The rain clouds held off for the lovely outdoor ceremony. Our newlyweds exchanged heartfelt vows that even got us a little teary-eyed. The perfect sunlight filtered through the trees as the ceremony ended and the cocktail hour began. As twilight set in, we stole Malia and Alex away to the lake where they released some Chinese lanterns which were especially sentimental because this is how Alex proposed to Malia. We felt like we were in the movie “Tangled”.
Then we headed inside for the reception which was an absolute blast thanks to Tony from SCE event group. Nobody left the dance floor all night except to toast and eat cake. We headed back outside for our night shots, where we continued with our “Tangled” theme. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ending to the perfect fairy tale day. Malia and Alex were so lovely to work with and we wish them a happily ever after.
