This wedding is definitely one that is near and dear to my heart. As I mentioned before, Marissa is my best friends sister which means I have known her family for quite some time. It is always nice to know (and adore) all the family prior to arriving at the wedding! I absolutely loved photographing Marissa and Emilio’s engagement images, so I was beyond excited to photograph their wedding day. Their wedding day was sunny, cool and overall just completely beautiful. Because Marissa and Emilio are both talented musicians, they had many musical aspects to their wedding, including live music during the ceremony, a special performance by Marissa and Emilio for their guests during the reception and of course Emilio’s boutonniere was made out of sheets of music. I hope you enjoy just a few of my favorites!!!
Powerhouse Park is a beautiful venue for a wedding!! Just blue skies, palm trees and the ocean.
The musicians that performed during the ceremony were all friends of Marissa and Emilio of course!! (And they were amazing!!)
This was an emotion filled first look.
Don’t you just adore them?!
Marissa — You are so beautiful!!
I LOVE this bridal party shot!!
I love their excitement!!
Surprise performance by the bride and groom!
This was the first time that many of the guests heard Marissa sing and her voice is so beautiful!
They are both such talented artists.
Congratulations Marissa and Emilio!!!!
