I am a wedding photographer based in Fresno, CA. For the past 3 years I have been capturing adventurous love stories and helping others feel loved and supported throughout their wedding experience. If there isn't a camera in my hand, you would find me watching Friends or The Office, eating Chick-fil-A, and hanging our with my hubby and puppy.
The lovely Madison married her Prince, Tyler Ehresman at the country castle, White Barn in San Luis Obispo. There was so much love and so many fun wedding details throughout the day that I am so excited to share!
Getting ready photos in the morning is a special time to capture the support crew having fun and getting spiffy. Madison and crew wore matching monogrammed satin pajamas, popped some bubbly, and featured signs of how they knew the bride for some memorable pictures.
I love that Tyler and his crew had fun playing cornhole! The men don’t take as long to get ready, but they deserve to make some memories with their best bros.
Madison and Tyler wrote their own vows and got to read them before the ceremony. Reading their words of true love to each other got them so excited to finally be married in just a few short hours!
Your wedding day is definitely an excuse to go all out with special details and make fun moments that turn into memories. Similar to souvenirs when traveling, customized wedding details that you can use later will always bring you a smile when you see or use them. One of my favorite customized details was the jean jackets worn by Madison and her ladies!
Look at these cute mermaid customized wine glasses! Madison’s favorite Disney princess is Ariel, and these wine glasses were a sweet nod to her childhood dreams coming true on her wedding day. Madison even personalized the bottom of the glasses with a sweet note to each of her maids.
Tyler and Madison love their dogs, Coral and Moo Moo, so much! They appeared on Tyler’s socks and were put on display as features of the signature cocktails.
All five senses can trigger memories, and I love how Madison thought to include her perfume in her details shots. All of their wedding signs were stylish, but this one might be my favorite 😉
Guests were welcomed into the glamorous barn for the reception, where they were blown away by the towering floral centerpieces and personal seaglass inscriptions in lieu of placecards. Also, the wedding cake that stole the show with a personalized cowboy and cowgirl silhouette to represent the bride and groom.
Alright, here is what you have all been waiting for! This ceremony had all the emotions including the “awwws” due to the cutest flowergirls and ringbearer, the tears of joy from Tyler watching Madison walk down the aisle, the laughs during the ceremony, and the biggest smiles after saying “I Do”!!!
My favorite part about photographing weddings is watching the love between the bride and groom when they get to be together. Madison and Tyler had a beautiful wedding, but an even more beautiful love for each other. Also, please schedule sunset photos, they are ALWAYS worth it! I mean look at this couple in golden hour in a field of flowers!!
The reception was an absolute party! Hilarious toasts, everyone on the dance floor, and to top off the night a grand exit with bubbles and fireworks!
