Shaye & Jordan’s December El Chorro Wedding

Best friends. The two words I would use to describe Shaye and Jordan’s love. It occurred to me throughout their entire wedding day that these two are so much more than “lovers,” but they’re the closest companions who share so many laughs and incredible memories together. The moment it really hit me was when one of Shaye’s favorite songs played during the reception. All her girlfriends ran out to the floor and sang every single word laughing and jumping up and down, having the time of their lives. Shaye turned around and pulled Jordan onto the middle of the floor, holding his hand as they danced and laughed. This seemingly small gesture proved how these two have so much fun together, and would choose the other to share in moments that best friends do, including singing at the top of your lungs and dancing like no one is watching. I couldn’t help but smile (and dance along) as I watched everyone celebrate their union. It was a truly wonderful evening, capping off the most perfect day!

If it wasn’t enough that Shaye and Jordan are the absolute sweetest couple, their day ( and everyone in it) was so incredibly beautiful! Deep burgundies and midnight blues were accentuated by crisp white flowers, creating a classic elegance that will stand the test of time. The weather was absolutely perfect and the sun peeked out from behind the clouds just in time for sunset, creating an orange and pink cotton candy sky for everyone to enjoy. Truly the most unforgettable day, and no one deserves it more than these two. Shaye and Jordan, I’m so incredible thankful that fate brought us together! Thank you for letting me freeze these amazing memories for you both, and for being a part of this exciting time in your lives. Never lose the way you looked at each other this day, how you danced together, and laughed so deeply. Always choose each other to share you joys with, and always, always remain best friends!
