What’s not to love about Josie + Dan’s Calamigos Equestrian wedding?!?!
They are a super awesome couple and, in addition to being absolutely adorable together, they really let their personalities shine through in their wedding day, which we love!
When couples first contact us, we send them a short questionnaire to get a little more information about their wedding day just because we like to get ourselves up to speed on what they are planning for their wedding. Here’s a little bit of what Josie sent us:
“Dan and I couldn’t be more different or LOOK more different from each other. I’m a short 5’2″, first generation Chinese American…and he’s a tall 6’2″ Irish American. Our wedding will reflect those differences and also highlight things that we both love. We both work in film and LOVE movies… so we want a cake topper of a bride n’ groom holding guns.”
When a bride is talking cake toppers with guns right out of the gate, you know that you need not question their “commitment to sparkle motion” (you get major Marianne + Joe bonus points if you know that reference). We were excited to shoot this wedding and to see how they expressed their differences and similarities in their wedding. They certainly didn’t disappoint! We could see little touches of “them” throughout the day and we loved them all. But, we have to say that our favorite was the A-Team style video that they aired right before their grand entrance to the reception. To be honest, we were a little bummed that we were only able to catch little bits of it (since we were shooting people’s responses/reactions while they watched it), but the little bits that we did get to see were fantastic! :)
