A fall foliage elegant wedding with hunter green accents!!!

   A mother's love for their children is like no other bond. Leanna & her mom share that kind of bond. I could tell how Leanna's mom looked at her how proud and loved she is. My favorite moment of the whole celebration was the releasing of doves after the ceremony. The weather was absolutely perfect.

Leanna & Raul have been together for many years They grew up together. Therefore this was a very emotional day for the families. Leanna precious little sister could not hold back the tears as they said their vows and become united as one. Many tears flowed during the ceremony so many happy tears. Raul Dad was proud of his son. He showed throughout the whole day.

We started with the groom prep. Raul and all his groomsmen gathered at Raul's & Leanna's house to get prepped together. They all shared a frozen shot before we headed to bride prep. The guys looked very sharp in their tuxedos. I love the color pallet for this wedding. Dark green and silver were their wedding colors. Very unique. 

Bride's prep was busy and full of beautiful ladies everywhere. When I walked in Leanna already had all the dresses hanging up on the bed. It was so pretty and perfect. Thank you, Leanna, that was very helpful and it looked amazing. It was gorgeous. All the deep green dresses next to her dress really popped off the background. Details were gorgeous. Leanna did a great job with planning her wedding.

The ceremony was held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Bakersfield, Ca. This is our second time shooting at the big beautiful church. The coordinator is very helpful. The reception was held at Elgante at the Junior League of Bakersfield. Where everyone shared laughs, hugs, and dances. The family traveled from everywhere to share this special day with Raul & Leanna. 

Raul & Leanna, we are super excited for you guys to start this new chapter in life. We had tons of fun at your wedding. I will save our photo booth picture, Leanna, forever. You guys will always be apart of our ML family. We love you and again thank you for choosing our team to document your special day. Hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your wedding!!!!
