san diego wedding photographer - josh & julie's equestrian park wedding

josh & julie are very kind people & they put so much effort into hand crafting every detail of their day. the ceremony & reception was at an equestrian park in murrieta, california. places like this are so rustic and beautiful, something you don't always get at big fancy wedding venues. with that said, you have to pretty much do everything yourself since their is no staff. luckily they made the smart decision to hire a wedding planner who handled the setup as josh & julie prepared for their first look and oh, their wedding! let's take a step back and talk about the moment i knew julie was going to make her wedding fantastic - at their engagement session. we had a truck bed full of vintage furniture and camping gear, all for an amazing styled session in joshua tree - so fun! from the oversized greenery on the tables & bouquets, to the vintage furniture - everything was lovely. this chick is crafty with great taste + has a supportive man to help make things happen! take a stroll with me through the highlights of their big day <3
