Brae + Oakley.
These guys were one of the first couples I ever took pictures of so they’ll always hold a special place in my heart.
While I was living in North Carolina over the summer, Oakley texted me asking about my availability for her wedding. Unfortunately, I was already booked on the day she requested, but a couple weeks later, she texted me again saying she couldn’t get married without me so they’d changed the date!
Biggest compliment ever. I love them so much.
The bride’s family stayed in the cutest little Airbnb in Laguna Beach where Oakley got ready the morning of their big day. We all piled in their rental car and drove the 20 min to a private beach where Brae was waiting for her under an arbor he made with his grandpa.
Me, along with 20 of their closest family members, could barely even hear their vows over the crash of the waves, but the way they looked at each other was indication enough of what they were saying + feeling.
Brunch was served at the cutest little sidewalk cafe with the most scrumptious orange ricotta pancakes, followed by some frolicking in the ocean to bask in their newly-wedded bliss.
Congrats to one of my favorite couples!
