A Rustic Fall Wedding: Lou + Demaris

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it feels fitting to be sharing this BEAUTIFUL wedding with you today! As I reflect back on this day, I am SO thankful for Lou and Demaris AND all the amazing couples I've had the honor of serving this year. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude!!!  
 
Lou + Demaris planned THE most gorgeous fall wedding, at a rustic residence in rural Central California. From the outdoor arbor complete with an antique chandelier to the indoor corrugated metal barn...the setting was absolutely STUNNING!!! Add to that, the couple's closest family and friends gathered together on THE most perfect fall weather - this day was DREAMY from start to finish!  
 
More than anything, I loved seeing the love and support for this couple! It was everywhere and FILLED the day with so much joy and laughter and heartfelt tears! A big thank you to Diane Angel Photography for helping me capture this day, and to Lou + Demaris for the honor of photographing your beautiful wedding day!








How gorgeous are these blooms by Natalie Galasso Designs?!?






Serious squad goals right here...






This dress was BEYOND!!!


Before the big reveal, Demaris and her mom took a moment to exchange gifts...


Demaris' mom gifted her charms for her bouquet...




And Demaris gifted her mom with an engraved bracelet to wear for the day...love!




Best reaction EVER to seeing the bride!








One of my faves!






Meanwhile, the groom was also getting ready for the ceremony...




With a little help from his best man!




But seriously, how DARLING is Lou + Demaris's son!?!?!!! Little man looked so handsome with his bow tie!!!








Lovelovelove his color combo!










These sisters were THE best!


One of the sweetest moments of the day was seeing THIS!!! When Brody saw his mom for the first time in her dress!!!




A sweet blessing over their daughter before walking down the aisle...










Officially Mr. and Mrs.!!!


Since Lou is a police officer, Demaris surprised him on the way down the aisle and handcuffed him 'for life'!!!! So good!














After a few bridal portraits, we headed inside for some dinner and dancing where their little Brody had his very own little seat next to mom and dad...i mean, how stinkin' sweet is that!?!?!












First dance...




I think Brody approved too!




After dinner was served, we snuck out for a few portraits at sunset...






Love!




I have so many favorites, but this might be a top!


I love these two together and seeing the JOY between them!








After sunset, we headed back to the reception for toasts and more DANCING!!!!
















I'll end with this one because the night continued with dancing and celebrating and SO. MUCH. LOVE. for Lou + Demaris! xx
