Home Grown Creston Wedding

Last Saturday I was out at Camp Emanuel Heights in Creston to photograph Anthony and Natalie's wedding. They met while working at the camp during the summer of 2011. Anthony is from East LA and Natalie is from the very rural town of Shandon. Anthony is good friends with my son Zack and knowing that all this young couple have is love, I volunteered to photograph their home grown wedding. To my knowledge most everything was donated by friends and family to give them a wonderful wedding day.

Natalie the bride, made all the flower arrangements.

Natalie look gorgeous in her wedding dress.
One of the most special moments was just before the ceremony when, with out seeing each other, the bride and groom gave up a special prayer while they held hands around an oak tree.

Rumored to be there very  first kiss under the canopy built by the brides father.

Bride and groom share a special moment back on the stage that was lit by wireless LED lights that I had borrowed from Bob at Phase1 Mobile DJ service.


The food and atmosphere were great although it was a bit chilly.
