California Blossom Wedding

Blossom Wedding

Ashley + Aaron were married at their gorgeous California blossom wedding this past February, and it was absolutely perfect.

I first met Ashley at almond blossom mini sessions I offered back in early 2021. She told me all about their planing for their wedding in 2022 – which felt so far away at the time! She described the gorgeous blossoms at Aaron’s family farm and the vintage details she had in mind, and I couldn’t wait.

Check out one of my favorite photos from their blossom engagement session.

Ashley is a veterinarian and Aaron is a farmer, so it was a perfect match. They met towards the beginning of the pandemic, and quickly fell in love.

There was some worry that the blossoms would arrive too late for their wedding, but they came in at the perfect time.

Ashley outdid herself with their vintage-inspired rustic wedding at Aaron’s family farm.

Every little touch – from the typewriter to their engagement photos spread throughout the farm was perfect. One of my favorite parts of wedding days is seeing how the couple pulls in each of their personalities to add to such a special day.

Ashley + Aaron chose to have their First Look in the gorgeous blossoms surrounding the Freitas Family Farm.

I’m a huge fan of First Looks. Firstly, they’re such a special moment on a busy wedding day. You get to share some intimate time together with your soon-to-be-spouse before all the crowds come in. My husband and my’s First Look was one of my favorite memories from our wedding day. Secondly, they let you get almost all your wedding party + family portraits done before the ceremony. By finishing that long list of portraits, you have more time together right after the ceremony and you can join your party much sooner.

After their First Look, Ashley + Aaron joined their family back in the house as the guest arrived.

This is often the best time for me to get some of those detail shots you saw earlier in the blog. I also try to get some photos of the first guests arriving – I love seeing their reaction to the beauty of the ceremony site that the bride + groom have often spent a long time planning.

Soon enough, it was time for their wedding ceremony in front of the blossoms!

After the ceremony, Ashley + Aaron took some private time together to celebrate and toast their new marriage.

Meanwhile, their guests got a private dance lesson from a line dancing instructor with Pemberton Music!

Afterward, Ashley did a quick change out of her wedding dress and their had their first dance – a salsa dance!

They had gone through months of lessons to perfect their routine, and it was definitely one of my favorite parts of their wedding.

It’s no secret that my #1 wedding tip for all of my couples is to sneak away during the reception for 15-20 minutes on sunset portraits!

The harsh sun had faded away, leaving behind a beautiful glow amongst the blossom orchard. Due to Aaron’s profession (farmer!), we had to take some portraits of them with a tractor. I absolutely lover how the photos turned out.

Again, I always recommend taking some time for sunset wedding portraits, especially if the backdrop is a gorgeous California blossom field.

We finished their sunset portraits just in time for a delicious catered meal from Magic Lamp Cuisine, followed by a beautiful round of toasts from the wedding party + close family. As always, I did tear up a bit.

I do want to feature their wedding cake as will, which was probably one of the best cakes I’ve had in my life. (I’m a huge fan of lemon cakes).
