Orange County Wedding : Brandon + Kristin

Orange County Wedding : Brandon + Kristin


She turned to him and promised one day he’d learn. One day her husband would learn to play the electric violin, just like he said he would. But one day you’ll learn, Kristin quietly said as she looked into his eyes. The entire room erupted in laughter when Brandon’s brother toasted him during the reception, but while others heard the punchline, Kristin saw the plot. Where others erupted in laughter, one of the first things evident in her love was Kristin’s undying devotion to Brandon’s dreams, even if they come in the most random form of an electric violin. That’s what makes them, well, perfect.

Kristin and Brandon met in high school and even after they graduated and went their separate ways, their hearts remained intertwined. When their paths crossed later in life, they both knew their love was destined from the start. They’ve watched each other pursue their dreams and supported each other through every bend and twist life sometimes throws. Best yet, they’ve given each other the space to lay their own roots, yet somehow keep their branches tightly locked. So locked is their love that even despite jokes of forlorn electric violin playing, they remain hopeful it’ll one day happen. But this time, they’ll learn to play together.

Brandon and Kristin, I know you’re in St. Lucia right now and the last thing you’ll be doing is getting a sneak peak of photos, but if you found an Internet cafe just off the beach where you’re sipping frosty beverages with umbrellas, please know I’m sending lots of love. I adore you both through and through. You emanate God. No, literally, you shine with a beauty that is so pure, caring, and kind that I know it can only stem from a divine love. Thank you for allowing me and JD to document your love. It was an honor of the highest regard. Much Love and Appreciation…j*

I didn’t know until later, but I photographed Kristin’s wedding shoes in a memorabilia box belonging to her grandmother. I loved the vintage box…

The light pouring into the room was just amazing…and special thanks to Sandi of Sash Makeup Artistry for making Kristin look extra fab!

Brandon and Kristin decided to see each other before the ceremony to allocate a lot of time for photos….and to help calm an over abundance of nerves. Just passed this bridge, Brandon waited…

…and THIS is why I love when a couple will see each other before the ceremony…moments like this…

Many thanks to Lauryl of Lauryl Lane for all the gorgeous florals…

After the First Look, we photographed the bridal party and they were a pretty awesome group of ladies…

…and the guys cleaned up pretty well, too…

After bridal party photos, we spent some time taking more wedding pictures around the Orange County Nature Center….

The morning light was amazing….

Then it was time for a perfect ceremony…thanks to JD for both these pictures…

The processional photos are always some of my favorites from the day because they’re so emotion filled…

After the ceremony, we found this empty mine, so we thought it made a great background for wedding pictures! πŸ™‚

Many, many thanks to Lauryl Lane and Eva of Red Velvet Occasions for working tirelessly on the reception set up and details…

The reception was supposed to be outdoors, but had to be tented in light of the recent rain and hailstorms, but the evening was perfect and went off without a hitch!

Like always, I’m thrilled when I get to work with Melody of Sweet and Saucy…she always produces the most amazing desserts! She and Eva of Red Velvet Occasions produced such a cute dessert station!

The First Dance…

Loved this photo JD captured of the First Dance…

Special thanks to Tasos of Atmosphere DJ for playing some of the best music ever and keeping the party so fun…

    JASMINE! Love these pictures. You amaze me at every blog post. I did want to point out that lately your blog posts take foooorrrreeeever to load. I’m talking like 15minutes or more. (only when you do a full post with a lot of pics). I don’t know if it only does that for me or everyone but it’s only started doing it recently. I don’t know if you switched servers or what but I just wanted to be aware something is odd. It’s the weirdest thing and if it wasn’t my favorite blog ever I wouldn’t care but it’s utter torture having to waaaaaaaiiiit for each fabulous photo to load. πŸ™‚ XOXO!!!!

    Jasmine, I am just in awe of you. I look at your pics and just know that, under the same circumstances mine would come out too red, too contrasty, too blurry in the wrong place, or too dark…and I try really hard not to be jealous.

  160. Tom Wright/formerly WRIGHT-WAY PRODUCTIONS & P -

    Debi & I spoke to Brandan & Kristen about our wedding photos. Being in the business I went out of my way to be sure I hired the right photographer so our wedding day could be without worries. As a shooter you always hold onto a little trepidation until the film comes out of the processor (old School). Brandan & Kristen; you can breath easily now, your photos are beautiful. The bridge shot as it all but my favorite is with Kristen with her dad. Jasmine, you captured them, the location and lighting, but most of all the emotions of the moment. Good Job Jasmine!!

      1.28.10 - 9:47 pm

  161. arielle joy -

    I would say that this was the most memorable wedding I have ever been to ( except when I married my best friend , Glen of understand ). The simplicity and the dramatic effects were all in balance. It was magical ! The video and pictures bring to life the natural love shared between the two of you. God has blessed your union well. It gleams from your faces. With God at the helm, I know that this love will only grow stronger. Never doubt that, just look at these pictures..they are worth a million words!! Blessings to you Kidds!!

    P.S. I thought it was considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride BEFORE the wedding (as in your bridal and groom shots). Has that custom changed in the business? Did I miss something? Confused…

      2.1.10 - 2:53 pm

  199. Cristen -
