meghan and charles roberts wedding in oceanside california


i drove past several incredible homes this day, but this one held something more special than the rest.
i walked past several happy people this day, but two of them were happier than the rest.
i heard many words this day, but two stood out from the rest.
on this day meghan and charles said "i do" with smiles larger than life on a lawn of a family home that was filled with family and friends.
the day could not have been more perfect.




it all starts with the shoes. these stuart weitzman heels were so cute.




with shoes like that you can't just cover them with any old dress. meghan's vera wang wedding dress was just right. such a beautiful dress.




the cherry on top of all that dreamy goodness was the ring. perfection.







meghan had one of the most unique bouquets i have seen in a long time. very dark and very beautiful.




there are so many wonderful moments i live to capture before a wedding begins. details, anticipation, preparation... and laughter.




when meghan was all finished getting ready and she came out for a few last shots before heading down the aisle there was only one word that could describe charles' bride-to-be...




stunning.
















this shot makes me smile. i love watching kids at weddings. especially when they're talking with the bride or groom. it's so cool to see the curiosity and wonder in their eyes. is this where wedding dreams begin?







that sounds good. i'll have that.




table number 10







anyone thirsty?













the flower girls were so precious.




funny face!




the ring bearer was looking sharp in his little tux.




here comes the bride.




meghan and her father shared one last moment together before they walked down the aisle to charles.




this is the day that the lord hath made.







charles and meghan are an amazing couple. everyone at the wedding wanted to be near them, and they did a fantastic job getting around to everyone. i felt extremely blessed that they set aside some time to step away from their friends and family and allow me to get some shots of them.
















charles was beaming the whole day. i love his expression here because it is not posed at all. that is pure joy you're seeing.







i have to give props to steven from in the mix entertainment. as with most weddings, the time schedule got a little behind. of all the vendors i have ever worked with, steven was the most efficient and professional. he found a way to smoothly get everything back on track during meal time without anyone knowing. when it came time to open the dance floor everything was back on track, so it remained packed the rest of the night. if you are looking for entertainment for your wedding, steven at in the mix entertainment receives my highest recommendation.







this is my new all time favorite father daughter dance shot. meghan's dad is the best. his speech had everyone laughing and tearing up through all 3 pages of it.










the party lasted into the wee hours of the night. i want to thank adam george for letting me come along to shoot this amazing wedding. what a day. mahalo adam.




i loved the fact that everywhere i looked i saw meghan and charles. everywhere. :)
