Cassie and Justin are getting married!! I've known Cassie for a long time, and I'm glad to see her so happy, ready to marry the man of her dreams. I'm so honored that they asked me to capture their special day! In less than 48 hours, they will be saying their "I Do's" in front of their family and friends at the beautiful venue Whispering Oaks Terrace in Pala, California (right outside of Temecula). This beautiful venue has so much character! From the vineyards, to the trees, to the barn and other cute buildings, there are so many different spots for photos. As we made our way around the venue, we had a couple onlookers, a couple kittens who decided they wanted to know what we were doing... you can see one of them photobombing the happy couple in one of the later photos!
If you're a fan of the TV show "How I Met Your Mother", then you'll love hearing about how Justin proposed to Cassie (even if you're not a fan... this is still pretty sweet!)! While living in different states, Justin surprised Cassie one day, showing up, and taking her out. Later that evening, he gave her a few letters (shown below), which began with, "Kids, I'm going to tell you an incredible story; the story of how I met your mother." He went on to write out the exact number of days they've known each other (984, at the time), the number of days they had been friends (798, at the time), the number of days since they had gotten together (186, at the time), and ended with, "1 Day where a decision was made to spend the rest of my life making those 798 days blend seamlessly into the 186 after, and every day prior to the 984 never existed." Is that not incredibly sweet?! Of course, she said yes! You can see her gorgeous ring below. I wish these two, and their yellow umbrella (another ode to HIMYM), nothing but the best!
