Alyssa & Eric | Maderas Wedding Photography

Alyssa & Eric Moon.  What a great last name right?  These two had an amazing celebration for their wedding day!  They were married at the Maderas Golf Club in Poway CA.  When I met with them many months back, I loved getting to know them.  Alyssa is extremely organized and cast such a great vision for how everything would go!

We got rained out for our engagement session and we joked about how surely, especially with the El Nino, it would be rainy and the ceremony would have to be moved indoors.  But no!!  We had the most gorgeous day.  Weather reports kept us watching the week before, but it turned out the clouds made for some beautiful light and a cooler covering for the warm sun.

I had some great help at this ceremony and had the privilege of having two amazing shooters with me.  Kellie of Little Blue Bow Photography, who has shot with me before, and Kristin, of Better With You Photography, whom I got to shoot with for the first time.  Both girls shot some amazing images and we had a lot of fun doing it!

The Maderas Golf Club was an amazing venue.  They were so accommodating and helpful with everything!  I loved getting the chance to work with them.  Oh, and they had some pretty amazing views and locations for photos 🙂

What I loved about their wedding was the ease of the message and the atmosphere.  They laughed and cried and it was all so, well, comfortable.  You could tell they were best friends.  They enjoyed each other.  And it seemed that despite how different they were, they complimented each others really well!

After the ceremony we snuck out for some golden hour photos.  The sun had just come out for the first time that day so we were able to get some gorgeous images!
