Loving the First Look Photo Fun of Melissa McClure, San Diego Wedding Photographer

We love when couples have fun with every single aspect of their wedding planning and, of course, on their wedding day! That's why we believe hiring the right personalities is one of the most important parts of creating your wedding line up of professionals. If you want a light hearted wedding day be sure to hire vendors who think and feel that way too! San Diego wedding photographer Melissa McClure loves to bring joy and her gift for photography to weddings.

And in case this adorable, ahem... 'first look' photo doesn't tell you everything you need to know about this lovely artist, watch this:

San Diego Featured Wedding: Katie + Adam's New Family of Four

The blending of families in the pursuit of true happiness and love is always a marvelous sight. Katie and Adam wed at the San Diego Administration Center in front of just their closest friends and family. The setting was small, yet so full of bliss. And now, their little family is just that. Adam has two children of his own who stood right beside them throughout the ceremony, symbolizing the unity that this family now holds. What was once three is now four, and their family couldn't be more thrilled by their new tribe and all the love they look forward to for the rest of their lives!

Here is a little inspiration for all couples who wed and increase their family and their hearts by 'marrying' their true love's children. 

Children teach us all how to stay wrapped in the arms of love simply by the way they live each moment. They show us the truth and remind us to look out in wonder at the abundance and joy that life holds. To view everyone with the eyes of your heart and to look within and find the divine existing within yourself. Very importantly, living in love means being able to live in a place in your heart where you feel as safe and as loved as a child. And forming a circle of love that encompasses all your family and friends.

Congratulations to all the families celebrating a new marriage!

A Library Wedding First Look Photo Shoot is Literally One for the Books

We are crushing hard on this Kentucky wedding for Wedding Crush Wednesday! This featured wedding showcases Nathan and Chelsea Burton who won our hearts instantly after viewing some of their wedding photos - we love book and libraries too! Chelsea's love for shades of purples and pinks made a debut throughout her bridesmaids' dresses and florals. The couple wanted to make sure they included not just colors, but all of the things that they love. Apparently, so did Mother Nature. These two love rainy days, and sure enough, a rainy day is what they got. Along with their love for cuddling up during these storms, Nathan and Chelsea share a love for books, so much so that the two had their first kiss surrounded by them, they even returned to that same library to do their first look. That is certainly one for the books!
