Kyla + Brian – Barbie’s dream wedding, Ponte winery Temecula wedding photography

July 12

Kyla & Brian are awesome. The first time I met Kyla was actually the wedding day of another client – she was the amazing hairdresser who was responsible for my bride looking gorgeous. The first time I met Kyla with her other half, Brian –  they had just spent the weekend wine tasting and were both sporting  ray ban sunglasses – 2 things I think are rad.  So by the end of the second time I had talked to her I knew a few things: 1. She had perfect hair.  2. This girl was going to have a dream wedding 3. Brian was just as awesome as Kyla.

I was right about three.

Klya loves Barbie ( and she could seriously be a Barbie doll!) and she planned every last little detail of her gorgeous wedding day just as you would expect for Barbie & Ken ;)

I think my very favorite part of this wedding was not the details, or how gorgeous everything looked – or even the perfect weather and delicious food – my absolute favorite part was that at the core of all the planning the most important part of the day for Kyla and Brian was that they share this special day with family. Family was at the core of EVERYTHING – from the importance of Kyla’s amazing relationship with her mom who was the one person Kyla wanted to have help her get dressed, to the moment that Kyla made sure to share a special moment with her future mother in law moments before walking down the aisle.  Marriage when stripped down is about the simplicity that you are sharing your life with the person you love most in the world – and the family you share it with.

And last but not least – my favorite moment at the reception – was watching a video that Kyla & Brian made for their families, and in it Kyla said she knew Brian was the guy for her when she told him she wanted so many little girls that she could start her own cheer squad – and Brian loved that. It turns out  they are going to get that wish – because just recently Klya shared the news that they are expecting their first baby!

Thank you so much Kyla & Brian for letting me be a part of your day – congratulations on all your new adventures!!
