Nicole and Blake’s wedding featred in Grace Ormonde

The wedding of Blake and Nicole has been featured in Grace Ormonde. You might remember from a recent post we showed you the fun maid of honor speech by Nicole’s sister. Today we wanted to share with you some of our favorite photos from their Southern California Coastal inspired wedding.  It was hard to choose only a few photos to share, because Nicole and Blake had so many great moments and beautiful decor from their wedding day.

I love photographing families together.  Seeing everyone come close and giving one another huge hugs, always puts a smile on my face.The friends and family of Nicole and Blake were asked to hold up their hands and give blessings to the newly weds.  This was one of my favorite moments from their wedding ceremony.  Can you say WOW.  Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings and Jennifer Cole Florals, created a magical event space for Nicole and Blake’s wedding reception.  The pool area of La Costa Resort and Spa was covered with plexiglass and had the head table on top of it.  With a sea foam green sequin table cloth and flowers suspended in mid air this was one beautiful and imaginitive head table.Nicole, Blake and their families love live music.  They had Wayne Foster Entertainment lead the guests to the reception with a trumpet and tambourine player.  What a great way to liven up your guests for the reception festivities.

We loved photographing every moment of their wedding.  What a fab day they had.  Below is a note from Blake and Nicole.


I wanted to let you know that Nicole and I received our wedding albums.  They are absolutely perfect.  We are so happy how they turned out.  I dont think that either one of us had imagined how professional and beautiful the albums would be.  It has been so much fun getting to know you and Gene; We want to also thank you for making our wedding so memorable through the photos you took.  These photos are priceless and we look forward to sharing them with friends, family and generations to come.  I hope that we can stay in touch.  I know that we will be looking for a photographer that can take baby pictures and family photos some time soon. Thanks again for all of your help and professionalism throughout the process.

Warm Regards,
Blake & Nicole
