Josh + April // Miramonte Resort & Intimate Wedding, La Quinta, CA

Oh my gosh I have so much to say about Josh and April! They had an intimate, back yard wedding on the most beautiful, golden, cloudy days. Their venue included beautiful citrus trees, succulents, a shimmering pool, macrame and Rose Quartz Crystals. I knew instantly April was a stickler for the small, beautiful momentos... the ones that bring back instantaneous memories and this day was no exception. Everything down to her mermaid hair, was beautifully thought out and most were hand made. What I remember most are their vows. They were soulfully written and said from the heart while they choked back a little bit of the tears! I am so so so glad they can relive this day everytime they look back on their gallery, I mean... if I get this teary eyed looking at the images I can just imagine what they see. *Be Still MY HEART!

Randy + Yvette \\ Pala Mesa Wedding

Meeting Randy and Yvette in 2016, I never expected to be part of such a beautiful and meaningful day. But after our meeting and first session of Holiday family portraits; it was meant to be. I was asked to capture their most important day; the day they were to be married. Once I arrived at the venue, I was absolutely stunned. Pala Mesa Resort does not disappoint from the aisle, décor and beautiful surrounding hills, to the bridal suite there was nothing short of beauty. Yvette made a beautiful bride, she wore a stunning fitted bridal gown along with navy blue converse "chucks" (my kinda gal)! Randy looked very handsome in the most perfect blue suit and their smiles never left their face. The entire night I have not seen such love from everyone - I was constantly being hugged and thanked (and I wasn't even the one getting married *insert blushing and laughter). This one was absolutely for the books, sending so much love and blessings to Randy and Yvette. xo -Amber Linn
