Kayla and Brett got married at Higuera Ranch, one of San Luis Obispo's most beautiful and breathtaking wedding venues! We were thrilled when they reached out and chose to hire us for photography and video. Lucky enough, Higuera Ranch is located just on the edge of San Luis Obispo, so to be so close to home was a real treat after shooting all day.
Personally I love hearing proposal stories. So to help get to know our couples better, we send out a questionnaire with various questions about their wedding, vision, who they are as a couple, etc. Here is their answer when asked to tell us about their proposal:
"We got engaged in New York City, one of our favorite places. After Brett's proposal we took a helicopter ride around Manhattan, drank champagne throughout the city and finished the perfect day with a Broadway show."
Once you meet Kayla and Brett, you quickly fall into their circle of friends, laughing and joking around as if you have known them forever. I showed up the day before to hang out and photograph their rehearsal dinner, and some quick portraits out in the vineyard during sunset. We came back the following morning to capture details, set up and everyone getting ready before the day began. Kayla did a first look with her Dad, which is always a real touching moment and a great option if you want to pass on doing a first look with your fiance.
The ceremony couldn't have been in a better spot! Nestled between the barn and the trees surrounded by Higuera Ranch's 80 acres of rolling hills. After exchanging vows, their guests enjoyed cocktail hour and lawn games while we finished up family photos and some portraits before their grand entrance into the barn for dinner. If you scroll below, there is no shortage of confetti canons in this wedding :) and we are totally okay with that. For sunset Chris took us all up to the top of the hills for some amazing photos. The light was incredible, with a view of San Luis Obispo and the rest of Higuera Ranch, it was definitely a sight to see. Once back to the reception, Kayla and Brett danced the night away celebrating with their family and guests. Thank you guys so much for having us there, your wedding day was perfect!
