October weddings in California are what dreams are made of. Undoubtedly, this Long Branch Farms wedding was especially a dreamy one. The morning started out foggy and drizzly but by the afternoon we were drenched in that gorgeous golden light. Opting to take advantage of California’s sun and coastal views JM and Michael’s first look took place on an oceanside cliff. I love when wind makes an appearance during photos, especially when a veil is involved. The combination of those two things is magical. Following their first look, they were joined by their sweet group of friends. I loved getting to witness just how much they all adore JM and Michael. After soaking up the sun and getting to play in the wind we headed over to Long Branch Farms for their ceremony.
If you haven’t been to Long Branch Farms you’re missing out. It’s an eclectic venue with an Old West vibe and the venue provides such a fun atmosphere for its guests. From gambling in the saloon to dancing in the Grand Parlor, there is no shortage of activities for guests to enjoy. It was clear that JM and Michael’s guests had an absolute blast. This space was decorated so beautifully. The soft grey color palette with pops of burgundy were perfect autumn colors. They added a touch of elegance to the rustic space. These loves threw the best party and I was so honored to be there to document it.
