The Belle Rae, Bakersfield, California Wedding

You know those people that have the kind of amazing energy that draws you in? The kind of people who have a special kind of magical, magnetic chemistry?

I remember when I first met Amanda and Anthony. They had the kind of bubbly warmth that made me realize that we were going to be instant friends! As we chatted about their love story and their wedding plans, I knew their wedding was going to be amazing!

The day started with the girls relaxing and getting ready at The Belle Rae while the boys were down the street at The Padre Hotel. The beautiful bridal suite had the cutest mimosa bar set up for the girls to enjoy. The mood was light and fun while excitement swirled the air.

When it was time for Amanda and Anthony to share their first look, we cleared the room and they shared a few private and intimate vows together. (I may or may not have had to wipe a few happy tears away.)

Just before the ceremony, we hopped on a party bus and cruised around for photos. We absolutely had to go downtown to take it back to where it all started at Sandrini’s Public House. We had a lot of fun with their favorite drinks and celebrated with a big CHEERS to the (almost) newlyweds before heading back to officially get married.

Fun fact: the officiant at this wedding was Darin Buoni. Darin was the model who proposed to his (now wife) during one of our styled shoots. Followed by their wedding on the same family property we used for their proposal.

Ok, now on to the good stuff! Keep scrolling to see all the beautiful details of Amanda and Anthony’s beautiful wedding day!
