“It might have been the hottest day of the year, but that did not stop Bryn and Mark from having a beautiful outdoor wedding at the Kern County Museum. I loved everything about their wedding, from the grey suits to the beautiful flowers by House of Flowers. Bryn has been a friend of mine for most of my life and it was just so special to be able to photograph her and Mark’s lovely wedding day.” – Ashley dePencier Photography

“It’s so hard to pick just one! The whole day was AMAZING! But if I had to pick, I would pick two. The first one would be seeing my husband and his reaction as I was walking down the aisle. We decided to go the traditional route and not see each other on our wedding day until I was walking down the aisle. Nothing is better than seeing your grooms expression the first time he sees you. The second one would be the reveal I did with my dad. I didn’t see him the whole day until an hour before the wedding when I was all ready. We cleared the bridesmaids out of the room we were getting ready in and had my dad come in. It was very emotional ( it helped me get all the “ugly” crying out so I wouldn’t be a mess walking down the aisle ha) and so nice to have that special moment alone with my dad. It’s a memory I will cherish forever…

..Yes! My uncle made the arbor that we used over our head table to hang chandeliers on. We did our own wedding favors by filling little coffee bags and tied them with a little thank you note. We also made signs directing people to where our wedding ceremony and reception were…

..Enjoy the process and your engagement, it goes by so fast! Also, don’t stress the little things! If something doesn’t go the way you hoped or wanted, you are going to be the only one who knows. The guests will have no idea, and they won’t care. :)” – Bryn, the bride
