I am smiling from ear to ear as I sit down to write this post. While I first chatted with Becky + Barrett, I vividly remember their vibrant laughter. Even minutes into our phone call, they were laughing and Becky blurted out “sorry, we have BIG personalities!” I knew right then that they were the perfect fit for us, that I wanted to get to know them more, and we were SO overjoyed when they chose us as their photographers.
It’s hard to put into words just why, but I think this wedding will go down in history as one of our absolute favorites. Sure the details were gorgeous- we LOVE a colorful and bold wedding, and El Chorro is our favorite too, but it was SO much more than that! It was the excited giggling as soon as we walked into Becky’s bridal suite that day, to Barrett’s mom yelling from her second story hotel balcony to everyone at the hotel pool “My son is getting married today!! Wahoo!!”, to the complete happiness and the playful bickering between Becky + Barrett during their couple session (they are such a REAL couple), to the dancing all night long- oh the dancing!! Andrew and I laughed so hard with their guests as they danced like crazy- it was truly joyous from start to finish and SUCH a vibrant celebration! We left feeling so uplifted, and we are still laughing at some of the amazing moments that we witnessed on this day. Everything flowed perfectly, and when our dear friend from Carte Blanche Floral showed up and pulled the most colorful and beautiful flowers out of her van, my heart leapt for joy. I just kept saying to Andrew “Perfect. This is perfect. This wedding is SOOO Barrett + Becky”.
We feel truly honored these two chose us, and we will forever look back on this day with fondness. Barrett and Becky- your relationship is one of a kind. Your playfulness, the way you love each other fiercely and joyfully- you truly have something special and we could not be more thankful to know you and to have played a small role in your vibrant love story. Cheers to new beginnings! -A&EJ
