Jones Victorian Estate Wedding :: Marysia + Matt

Orange County wedding photos at Jones Victorian Estate 01

Where do I even begin? I had already gotten a sneak peek into the wonderfully sweet chemistry between these two when I shot Marysia and Matt’s engagement session several months before. But even with all the phone conversations and emails back and forth and the handful of times we had met up and hung out, somehow I still wasn’t expecting to be this overwhelmed by the genuine delightfulness of these lovebirds. Silly me!

In my head, I had kind of thrown myself off my game the night before by stressing about schedules, charging a ridiculous amount of batteries, printing out backups of all sorts of spreadsheets and maps, overthinking my lighting plans and generally overnerding my nerdy nerdiness, etc. But as soon as I walked inside Marysia’s parents’ house, it was so comforting to be greeted by everyone with huge smiles. And I knew everything would be okay when, soon after, I found myself both laughing and tearing up during Marysia & Matt’s emotional first look.

I’ve already told Marysia & Matt this in person, but I have to say it again. The way that Matt held and looked at Marysia all day was truly something special to behold. Enamored, I think is the right word. I mean, this is how I want my daughters’ future husbands to be — THAT special.

Anyway, enough with the words. On to the photos. (Special thanks to my friends Vanessa and Jennifer for kicking ass all day.)

Leslie Nowakowski - I was crying so much after the first photo I had to stop a moment before continuing! Thanks Dexter for capturing the joy of the day.
