Amanda and Cayman’s wedding dreams came true and Anibaldi Studio had the honor of capturing their Melrose Ranch Wedding Photography. Amanda is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. She is always smiling and always has something positive to say, what a joy it was to be her wedding photographer at Melrose Ranch. I am so happy that Amanda found such a great solid guy like Cayman.
There were a lot of special moments throughout the wedding day. The father daughter dance, the mother son dance, the kiss during the ceremony, Cayman’s first look of Amanda in her dress, but my personal favorite was the combination of Amanda and her dad’s expression as they made it to the end of the aisle. In that one moment I could see the happiness of a very proud father and raw emotion of Amanda excited to start a new life together with Cayman. Im certain these photos will be looked at again and again for many many years to come. They will only increase in value as these too grow old together and have kids of their own someday.
Melrose Ranch is an amazing new wedding venue in San Diego with lush green gardens, huge shade trees, and a beautiful barn. When there are gorgeous flowers blooming with butterflies flying around, there really isn’t that much decorating that you have to do! The opportunity to be a Melrose Ranch Wedding Photographer is a dream come true and the venue reminds me of my wedding day at San Diego Botanical Gardens. There are so many different photographic opportunities that you just don’t have enough time in a day. Amanda was smart and we had a first look before the ceremony, so we had the time to capture photos in the gardens, vineyards, and courtyards. What a great place and with great staff too. Julie Stroh is a prenominal coordinator and with the help of her awesome staff, she takes care of the everything including the food. Not only was the food delicious but everyone was able to get there food within a 15 min or less window. I rarely see that and I was really impressed.
We hosted an open photobooth in the barn… what a hit! Everyone was having the time of their life!!! : ) Everyone was so silly and creative. I want to give a BIG thank you to Kevin for sharing his talents and shooting with me. I believe I get better with every photograph I capture. The next picture I take is always my best work! I can honestly say that this is the best collection of wedding photographs I have ever delivered. It all came together, the gorgeous venue, happy couple, and freedom to be creative and capture the wedding day like I see it. Im so happy to share these wedding pictures taken at Melrose Ranch.
