Being a part of Amanda and Doug's day felt like being a guest at their wedding. They were so warm and welcoming and kind, it made it truly effortless to capture so many great moments. Not to mention the styling by Jade Magnolia made for some real eye candy! Amanda and Doug live in Capitola right by Santa Cruz, such a dreamy area. The Santa Cruz Mountain Redwoods surrounded them during their very meaningful and symbolic ceremony amidst there closest friends and family. Later after pictures, a bunch more special people from their lives joined the party! There so many moments that showed just how much love they have for each other. I caught Doug kissing Amanda's shoulder unprovoked more than once, and Amanda couldn't hold back the tears of joy right after the ceremony! Excited to welcome 2018 with this first blog post of the year. This wedding was truly a highlight of 2017 for me! Can't wait to grow and stretch myself creatively in 2018! Let's do this!
