Romantic Forest Wedding at Calamigos Ranch // Neil & Nicole @2019 Sun & Sparrow // Southern California Wedding Photographers
1. Describe your how you felt on your wedding morning, all the anticipation and the love. What were you most looking forward to in the beginning of your day.
When I woke up, I was a little nervous but very excited. The day that we had been planning for the past eighteen months had finally arrived. It seemed so surreal. I was wondering what Neil was up to and thought of all the special moments that we were going to have that day. I was most looking forward to our first look because that was going to be the first moment of the day that we could spend together with just the two of us.
2. Did you have a ‘first look’ or a ‘walk down the aisle’ moment? How did you feel when you saw your significant other for the first time?
We decided to have a first look. I wanted to get our photos done ahead of time so it didn’t feel rushed trying to get them all done after the ceremony. I also wanted to get rid of some of the nerves I knew I would have. Walking up to our first look I was so anxious, I felt like I had a million butterflies in my stomach. We held hands and when we finally turned to look at each other all the nerves rushed away and happiness flooded in. It was a magical moment and we both couldn’t stop smiling at one another. It was really nice having that special moment that was just between the two of us before we got swept up with the rest of the day’s festivities.
3. What was your favorite moment/story from your wedding day?
My favorite part of our wedding day was the reception. It was such a great feeling to finally be married and enjoy all the hard work we put into wedding planning. It was really special being surrounded by our family and closest friends and having them celebrate our love. We also had some amazing speeches made by our family and some surprise karaoke.
4. How did your day most feel like a fairytale?
The location of the wedding made it feel most like a fairytale. The natural beauty that Calamigos Ranch has to offer is truly amazing. Being surrounded by nature with the ones that we love was an exceptional feeling. It was definitely the best day of our lives so far and we are so excited to see where the rest of our adventures take us. Thank you so much Sun & Sparrow for capturing our big day!
