We just couldn’t wait to post photos from this beautiful gay wedding, at Highland Ranch. Kelli and Dani had a very fun and intimate gay wedding, it was fit into a weekend retreat for their closest family and friends. What made it more awesome for us was that they had a very sweet first glance and did their portraits before the wedding ceremony took please. We love first glances; the couple got to see each-other before the ceremony and spend a very private and intimate portrait session time with each other. This part of the portrait session usually is very a emotional tear jerker. Dani and Kelly completely expressed their love and compassion for one another. We absolutely loved their wedding dresses, especially how they wore reverse colors, so perfect!
We were so honored that Kelly and Dani chose us to document their beautiful commitment ceremony. We are so deeply touched when two people truly in love decide to honor and seal their love and commitment for each other despite being the same sex and going ahead against normal conventions. We always in awe when a lesbian and gay couple decide to declare their undying and eternal love to each other and make the commitment despite the California marriage laws. And we are even more honored when the couple chooses us to be their wedding photographer. To document a gay or lesbian wedding is truly a special thing for us and something we really enjoy doing. Did you see our last same sex wedding photographs?
Their happy little doggy, Trout, was caught snoozing just before the first glance and ceremony. Guess he just had to get a few Z’s in before his owners’ big ceremony. Also, he might be tired from all the excitement leading up to the big day. We let him sleep for a bit, but then we just couldn’t leave him back for the portraits, he managed to get the energy to follow us around.
Bright colors and Fluevog shoes always make our day!
How special, for decor there were fresh picked wildflowers in little jars.
The events before the wedding even made us jealous that we didn’t join in. They had Clay Shooting and Horse-Back Riding, they even offered a nature walk and canoeing in the lake. There were also Yoga classes to attend all weekend, which I’m sure sparked interest in all the nature loving guests.
Kelly’s sister, also the officiant during their ceremony did a wonderful display of fire dancing toward the end of the reception. It was an amazing show, how brave she has to be to be swinging live fireballs that close to her body. I know all the reception guests were in awe.
This wedding had so many details and happenings that we just couldn’t fit it all into one post. We will be posting the rest of Kelly and Dani’s wedding soon!
