Elegante at Junior League Wedding  |  Bakersfield, Ca

   The weather was beautiful, and the mood of the day was perfect. Everyone was getting ready for Ryan and Gabrielle's big day. With months of planning and the day has finally arrived. 

Gabrielle and her girls got ready at her sister Danielle's house. Tons of gorgeousness everywhere I looked. My favorite part of bride prep was when Gabrielle grandmother helped her put a pendant with her grandpa's pictures on her bouquet. This was by far too precious. Gabrielle's grandmother is very photogenic every time I pointed the camera towards her she would have the biggest beautiful smile. It was contagious.

Ryan and his friends got ready at Ryans parents house. All the men looked very sharp all dressed up for Ryans big day. You could totally feel the love there. We got him prepped real quick just in time to head over to his first look with his soon to be MRS. 

The ceremony was at Valley Bible Fellowship the aisle was decorated with blue rose petals and custom signs. When I walked in saw one of their engagement pictures up on all three of their 3 huge screens. It gave me chills to see my picture that big. The ceremony was short and sweet. The words from the pastor truly came from the heart, for he has watched Ryan grow up since a child. It was a very pretty ceremony. I loved Gabby's long veil spread out behind her. 

As the day flew by we ended at the reception, it sure was a party to remember. Tons of family and friends danced the night away at Elgante at Junior League of Bakersfield. It was awesome to see everyone enjoying the night. 

Ryan & Gabrielle I am more than honored to have documented your wedding. Your wedding was tons of fun and full of love, laughter, and good times. You guys are very loved and blessed. Enjoy this new chapter of your lives. May the Lord bless you with many many years of happiness.
