Alex & Mark's wedding!

Our buddies Alex and Mark married each other on June 25th at Nestldown in Santa Cruz, California. The location was amazing, a photographers dream! Unfortunately I wasn't the main photographer so I wasn't the one that got to run around the property for a special bride and groom photo shoot. But what I did get was beautiful and fun and funky, thanks to their festive Day of the Dead theme. And I had a wonderful time shooting and enjoying the wedding of two of our favorite people...

adorable father/daughter moment. One of my favorites of the day.
By the way, Alex got her dress just a month before her wedding!

The bride walking down the aisle. Angel wing tattoo plus a sparkly veil make me all swoon-y.

Our centerpiece and wedding favors. We got to keep all the luchadors and Alex & Mark picked out this special favor for us since we just got married. It was really sweet.
