Beautiful white clouds sprinkled the rich blue sky as Phillip and Andie enjoyed their sweet and blissful wedding! Their gorgeous wedding took place at: The Gardens At Peacock Farms in Arroyo Grande – one of the very best wedding venues on the Central Coast. I don’t think I could have asked for a more kind and photogenic couple. The couple as well as the bridal party, family and friends were in great spirits, ready to party and were a pleasure to be around. I arrived early to ensure I had plenty of time to photograph the details including the wedding rings, shoes, wedding dress and everything in between.
As mentioned above, The Garden’s At Peacock Farms, located in Arroyo Grande is a gorgeous wedding venue. The venue includes a wonderfully spacious and beautiful bridal suite for the bride to get ready. It also has a small vineyard, pond, tractor and truck props, beautiful green trees and plenty of space. This venue was designed with weddings and wedding photography in mind – right down to the smallest details. I’ve seen a great number of wedding venues in my day and this is one of my favorites. Peacock Farms is professional staffed for the entire wedding day to make sure your wedding day is the best it can be. I simply can’t say enough good things about this wedding venue.
Not all brides are daring enough to let me leave their sight with their wedding dress in hand. However, Andie gave me a great amount of trust and allowed me to very carefully take her wedding dress outside so that I could shoot it hanging from this tree. I think it was well worth the risk. Thanks Andie!
Details, details, details. Personally I love all your wedding details. As a general rule of thumb: if you took the time and money to include them – their important enough for me to photograph. Details are not the substance of your wedding day, but they certainly add to the fun, excitement and beauty of your wedding day!
With the majority of the wedding details photographed, I moved on to the “getting ready shots”.
Andie was quite the stunning bride!
Phillip was quite the handsome groom.
The stunning floral arrangements were provided by: Flowers To You By Jessica. Jessica provides some of the very best wedding flowers and floral arrangements in the business. If you are looking for a wedding florist, you’ll want to give her a look.
Phillip (below) showing me he’s not having a case of nerves – his hands are not shaky!
It seems wedding cupcake arrangements (below) are becoming more and more popular. They offer many advantages over wedding cakes. Of course it’s really just a matter of preference!

Here comes Andie down the aisle with her father.
Capturing the emotion on your wedding day – whether it is the bride, groom, family member or wedding guest – is my reward as a wedding photographer.
After the ceremony we arranged for Phillip and Andie to rejoin the audience for one big group shot of everyone in attendance.
Everyone wanted to see the wedding ring!
Phillip and Andie were referred to me by one of my all time favorite wedding clients, Abel and Candice – featured in the below photograph. What a wonderful couple they are. A special thanks to them for recommending me to Phillip and Andie. Candice, by the way was pregnant at the time of this wedding. She has now gone on to give birth and so Abel and Candice are now proud parents. Congrats! Below, Candice has fun taking a picture of the official picture taker (me)! I love the look on Abel’s face as she does so!
These two girls (below/top/right) really “take the cake”. Well actually, as you can see, they were about to “take the cake”. Fortunately I caught them in the act and then persuaded them to wait until the cake was served for everyone. Just another “save the day” type deed – that I so often do with out any recognition! : )
Featured below, the groom’s father! To say he was “off the hook” would be an understatement. I do not think I have ever seen a father of the groom, let alone anyone, smile for so long un interrupted. This guy was smiling, dancing, you name it…ALL night long! I could not help but smile from ear to ear as I watched his wonderful display of joy and laughter!
Phillip and Andie make their escape through the gauntlet (below)!
“Your chariot awaits you” – as the expression goes. In this case it was: ”Your Caddy awaits you!” Sweet ride!
A special thanks to Peacock Farms for their great wedding venue and fabulous service through out the day. The Central Coast is blessed to have you in the wedding industry.
A wonderful and blissful day of love and laughter for Phillip and Andie. My memories of their most special wedding day will live on for many, many years. My hope and prayer for Philip and Andie is for that wonderful love and laughter of their day to live on in the sweetness that is the rest of their lives. Congrats to you two and remember you always have a friend here – so stay in touch!
