Nautical Long Beach Wedding // Katie and Daniel
Katie and Daniel got married on a sunny day in October at the Long Beach Yacht Club. The groom is not only a total sailing nerd...he's an actual sailor. I didn't even know this was still a thing, did you? Regardless, I was sure happy to find out. Both of their families are members at the Long Beach Yacht Club, so to say they freaking lovvvvve this place is a total understatement. And, #funfact, Katie's dad David is going to be Commodore of the club in 2017. Yes, I had to Google what that meant and Yes, it's a huge deal. So- I'm stoked for him (and wouldn't mind being invited back to take event photos. Ahem, just sayin'). The theme of this Nautical Long Beach wedding was a no-brainer and the nautical touches were seen at every turn. From the rich navy blue bridesmaid dresses and sash on Katie's bridal gown to the sailor's knot table decor and the faux buoy place card holders. I was focused on making sure I got great shots, but let's be honest here folks, my primary objective was day-dreaming about sailing on the open sea with my hair in the wind and a classy cocktail in my hand.
Can you blame me?
I'm pretty sure this was the best day of Daniel's life....like, ever. His expressions ranged from overcome with emotion to bursting with happiness and I'm so glad he and Katie will get to relive those moments through these photos forever.
