This Condor’s Nest Ranch wedding was so much fun.  Ellen Hollman and Stephen Dunlevy met while on the cast of Spartacus.  If you think that show is epic, just wait till you see their wedding.  Seriously every moment was full of emotion, fun, and amazing surprises.  Watching Ellen on her wedding day was so sweet.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen someone enjoy and savor every moment as much as she did.

We were back at the charming Condor’s Nest Ranch for Melanie and Bryce’s engagement.  They will celebrate their wedding here later this year, so it’s such a special place to also capture the sweetness of this season of their life.

This was such a special wedding to be a part of!  It was a destination wedding for Kady and Adam and their family who were all from out of town.  And San Diego’s L’Auberge Del Mar was the perfect venue to show off California’s charms.  Definitely look at the end of the post to check out the amazing team who made this wedding so beautiful.

Kelsey and John love beautiful architecture alongside the contrast of nature, so the Claremont Colleges were the perfect place for their engagement pictures.  These are seriously gorgeous campuses.

Oh we loved this wedding!  There was so much family lovin’ and dear moments.  And the reception dance party – I haven’t seen a funner group in a long time.  I loved that the dance floor was full of kids and kids on top of shoulders.  Check out the amazing vendors at the end of this post.
