“She saw this Church when she was 6 and knew she wanted to get married here.” Amber’s dad, John, told me this as I walked into the rehearsal with my jaw on the floor. The Church, Claremont United Church of Christ , was phenomenal!! The aisle, the stain glass, the balcony (that we couldn’t get into – bummer!) the pipe organ, seriously!

Amber & Anthony are wonderful friends that just happen to go to our church, so this was very special for us. I was shooting, along with my good friend and amazing photographer Sandra Salisbury, my wife was a bridesmaid and we had a lot of friends there to celebrate with!

To make it even more special, Ambers dress was made by her mom, Faye, and she did an absolutely amazing job on it!! The details of the day were spectacular, the church, the sweet reception and – the photo booth!! Holy cow was the photo booth fun!!

Be prepared people, there are quite a few, have to make up for my posting drought ;)

Seriously Faye, wonderful job!
