Wedding In Fallbrook, California
Ben and Viktoria are seriously two of the kindest most humble people I have ever had the privilege of photographing. During their engagement session in Oceanside, California, they could not have been more awesome. First of all, we started the day with beers on Ben which made me see why Viktoria fell in love with this dude. Then we cruised the beach until sunset while snapping photos, having laughs and enjoying each others’ company. It was quite nice and I knew their wedding day would have that same stress-free vibe from start to finish. The wedding was at a venue that has been around for decades called The Grand Tradition. Oddly enough, the last time I had been to this wedding venue was nearly 10 years earlier when my friend Josh got married there and I was a groomsman. Josh is still married and loves drinking beers in his backyard while throwing bags in case you were wondering. But let’s get back to focusing on Viktoria and Ben instead of my buddy Josh and his drinking.
The wedding went off perfectly without any hiccups (and on time I might add!). Ben was dressed like a champ and even made sure to get the names of the bus boys, servers and other people at the venue who made the night go smoothly so he could personally thank them (Did I not tell you this guy was awesome?). Viktoria looked stunning in her dress and red lipstick, and we partied the entire Sunday evening. Super awesome wedding and even cooler people. Cheers Viktoria & Ben!
Thank you Ben & Viktoria for allowing me to document the start of your adventure together as husband and wife. I normally prefer to keep things light and fun but I have to be a little more serious with you two because you truly are both amazing individuals and I know so many good things are in store for you both. Well since I am being a sap I might as well pop open a bottle of white wine, break off a chocolate bar and watch the Notebook as I study the abs of Ryan Gosling in detail. Rumor is if you listen closely his abs will whisper to you…okay I have went way too far now. Cheers guys!
