Alison and Matt

The music pouring from the iPod could be heard from the street. A little Country, and little Pop. The make-up artist looked at the magazine picture Alison had previously cut out as a point of reference and bridesmaids occasionally passed by them, oohing and ahhing over the bride’s metamorphosis. The windows and door were kept wide open and a light Palm Springs breeze meandered through the house. Laughter could be heard outside from the patio table. Laughter mixed with a Country and a little Pop.

Matt and his groomsmen readied themselves at the Monterey Country Club, just as the wedding coordinators and florists prepared for his wedding. Perhaps it was the warm sun that made desert calming, but as the wind blew through the palm trees, one could close her eyes and feel love.

Matt and Alison met each other while playing the field. Literally. Both avid soccer players, they met while playing in Los Angeles and fell in love shortly thereafter. Documenting their vows and commitment to each other was extraordinarily precious because they made me feel like I was part of their homespun network of friends…like I was just a friend roaming around with a camera. I LOVE when this happens! Their gorgeous wedding was in Palm Springs and I was truly honored to be a part of their day. A special thanks to Alison’s sister-in-law, Shannon Lott, for finding my blog and recommending my work…it’s the biggest compliment when an industry colleague refers my services, so I appreciate her kindness and trust.

Here are a few of my favorites…

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw Alison pull out her wedding shoes from an Adidas can take the girl off the soccer field, but you can't take soccer outta the girl! :)

The hair and makeup was done by Maria from Salon Sessions (a home salon for America's Next Top Model) in Pasadena. She's awesome!

The following two shots were captured by adorable is the flower girl?!

Apparently the flower girl found a new use for her Dora the Explorer stickers during the toast! :) JD captured this shot...
