Hurst Ranch West Covina Wedding • Christine & Andy

Last month, I shot Christine and Andy’s beautiful wedding in West Covina.
I have grown to love this couple so much because of how much they love each other and because of their love of God.

The morning was filled with love, laughter and lots of guys and girls running around and getting ready!
You could feel the anticipation in the air and see the excitement in everyone’s faces.

I love that Christine decided to do a first look with her bridesmaids.  The looks on their faces are priceless.


 Christine and Andy’s ceremony was held at the Covina United Methodist Church.


Christine also did a first look with her dad.  It was such a beautiful moment.

Okay, so I absolutely love this next set of photos.  Before the ceremony, with only a brick wall separating them,
Christine and Andy got to share an intimate moment with each other before the busyness of their wedding day began.
Watching them silently read their letters they wrote for one another and praying before their ceremony started was so awesome!

Their ceremony started with amazing worship music complete with a grand piano and beautiful strings (I’m a sucker for strings)

Andy looks so genuinely happy to see his bride walking down the aisle!

Christine and Andy’s families joined forces and played some beautiful music for the soon to be newly weds.

We’re married!  But first, lemme take a selfie. 😉

The reception was held at Hurst Ranch in West Covina.
It was the perfect backdrop for Christine and Andy’s rustic yet very elegant wedding.


The light was so beautiful outside as the sun was almost completely gone.  So we took a couple minutes to escape the busyness of the wedding.
In love with these next few images.  MODELS.  I also love how both Christine and Andy had an outfit change.

The party started right when the newlyweds walked back into the room!

The night ended with everyone releasing floating lanterns!
It was so beautiful and totally reminded me of Tangled…even though everyone was singing “Let It Go” haha!


Christine and Andy, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your amazing wedding day!
It has been so awesome witnessing your love for each other as well as your love for the Lord.
