Daleen and Aaron: Kuthaba Lodge Wedding


Remember Daleen and Aaron’s fab engagement shoot? Well, they got married a week after that. This wedding was extra special to me because I was part photographer, part guest! My husband works with Aaron, and not only were they present at our wedding, but Daleen caught the bouquet, and Aaron…well, he was forced into catching the garter. 🙂 It wasn’t too much in the hands of fate, though, since they were already engaged! And finally, almost two years later, Jeremy and I got to be at their awesome wedding.

It was a bit odd being the photographer while my husband mingled with the guests, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way, especially after I had a preview a few months ago of Daleen’s inspiration boards (country chic) as well as her dress (Pronovias!) and her shoes (cowboy boots with a touch of blue! Yes, really!). Oh, the deliciousness I had to photograph!

Loved these flowers on the tables in their the outside reception area:

One of the best ceremony sites I’ve ever seen, under a huge fig tree. Everyone sat on hay-bales…so much fun!

Daleen and Aaron, you two were fabulous! Thank you for letting me capture your AMAZING day, and for giving me so much time to shoot myself crazy! (Let’s just say the two best men had a bet as to how many photo’s I’d taken. They were both seriously under!). Your wedding was such an expression of your style and your love…it was incredible to be a part of! See you when you get back from Spain!
