Newport Beach Wedding : Becky + Blake

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
he final entry in her journal stated she went on her last first date...and met the man she was going to marry. That was a few years ago and the journal pages have remained blank, but her prediction has not. Remained blank, that is. Shortly after meeting Blake, Becky traveled out of state with his family to watch him play football and there she fell head over heels with everything he was. Kind, thoughtful, funny were just the start of a long list of things she liked about him and she couldn't rave any more about the man who stole her heart.

Last Saturday in Newport Beach, Blake took Becky's hands and said he loved her for who she was and the beauty of her heart. He promised to love, cherish, and honor her for the rest of his life, and Becky--beaming with a radiant smile--returned his vows and they sealed their promises with a kiss. Regardless of what the future holds for them, Becky's journal will be filled with happy memories of a couple who were destined for each other from the start.

Becky and Blake...ever since meeting you in person while roaming the streets of Laguna Beach a couple months ago, I've loved every minute of seeing how you care for each other. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the opportunity to capture your love and the moment you said I Do. Much Love and Appreciation... j*

The day started with a beautiful bouquet (with many thanks to The Vine's Leaf), a stunning wedding dress, and a high five.

Blake waited nervously for the wedding to begin, but he was all smiles as he eagerly anticipated his beautiful bride...

It was a HOT day in Newport Beach, but just minutes before the ceremony, a coastal haze rolled in and cooled the heat making it a truly delightful outdoor wedding...

Many thanks to Chelsea of Fuse Hair & Beauty for Becky's hair and makeup...

One of my favorite things about Blake and Becky is that you can't not be happy to be around them. I know this sentence isn't grammatically correct, but who cares? It's how I think! ;)

Oh, GO ON you two!

The First Dance...part of what made this moment possible and overwhelmingly sweet was all of the hard work Sara Holland of At Your Door Events provided at the wedding. I'm incredibly thankful to have worked with her and her amazing team!

...the wedding reception was a blast and it started off with some hilarious toasts...

This was the last wedding photo I captured for the night...and it pretty much sums up their love...
