every day when i wake up i thank God that i live in such a beautiful place. the weather is awesome, the surf is ok, and there are lots and lots of beautiful people getting married. enter nathan and samantha. they just tied their collective knot at the Chanteclaire Country Manor.
this was the first time i had ever shot at the manor. correction, first time we ever shot there. of course i brought kim and april along…and alyssa joined the ohana for good measure. needless to say, we had the place surrounded. Chanteclair is such a perfect little place for a wedding. be sure to check it out if you’re looking for a venue.
nathan and the guys had the coolest dude room i have ever seen. it had every ammenity a guy could ask for (this side of vegas).
girls go crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man. that’s right. i busted out the zz top lyrics.
while i was hanging with the guys, april and alyssa were over in the brides suite with samantha. kim loves these two shots of samantha getting into her dress.
she’s so happy
it was a perfect fit. a beautiful dress for a beautiful bride.
samantha was absolutely gorgeous.
samantha and her dad made their way down the path to kick off the show.
samantha and nathan asked the super cool Reverend Powers to be their officiate. (Reverend Powers also did the ministering at our wedding back in the day.) he is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. give him a call!
with the ceremony complete, it was time to pop the bubbly…
and the margarita machine. how sweet is that?!
what happens if you mix all the flavors into one margarita?
this part always gets me. the father daughter dance.
everyone looked so good. even the glassware was dressed up.
kim was feeling jeshy.
our time with samantha and nathan flew by. did you see it?
of course i had alterior motives when i set this shot up.
samantha and nathan had no idea that it would totally tie-in their…
stealth cam. while i was sneaking up on samantha and nathan i had an idea for…
ring shot numero dos.
with all the shots shot and the stretch car idling, we bid samantha and nathan adieu. thank you both for choosing our ohana to share your day.
