Florence + Seng: A Beautiful Oak Tree and Olive Grove Wedding

You know those weddings where everything just sort of WORKS? Yeah, they’re pretty rare. This wedding day was such a delight for us to photograph. Here are some reasons why:

1- Traffic free commute
2- We got there early and had time to grub
3- Perfect pre-fall weather
4- Florence was flawless
5- Seng was so relaxed and fun to be around
6- Florence and her family are part French and spoke to each other in French all day long
7- Florence had a beautiful and untraditional wedding dress
8- We found larger than life cacti that made me feel like I was in Honey I Shrunk The Kids
9- We had time for everything we needed
10- There were desserts galore

I don’t know if you’ll be able to understand how happy I was to hear French spoken so beautifully around me all day. I couldn’t believe that I was able to understand a little of their conversations (Thanks to my high school French teacher Mrs. Lovelace) but when I tried to answer back I couldn’t even form words or get my tongue to move! It was hilarious and pitiful. I think I even responded in Spanish a few times. YIKES.
Florence actually had friends fly out from France to attend her wedding! It was so easy to tell that Flo + Seng are deeply loved.

Their first look was really special and they both admitted to getting more emotional than they thought possible! A first look is such a great way to embrace the wedding day (and each other). Gosh, they just make me so happy!

Badgley Mischka and Prada… the girl knows how to wear a pair of shoes! Let me tell you.
She really couldn’t have looked prettier. I loved her excited expression as we walked up to the First Look!
Florence was decked out in the most beautiful jewels from BHLDN; Anthropologie’s sister brand.
^^^ The guy 3rd from the left has my favorite smile. Ever! Steve and I were cracking up when editing these! How happy does that expression make you?!

Thanks for having us, Florence + Seng!! We are so happy you picked US to photograph your wedding day!
