Get Inspired by this California Country Wedding

One of our fave wedding photographers takes on a California wedding. The result? Pure perfection.

The world of a wedding photographer is one that feels filled with enchantment. I mean, think about it, your job is to capture love on camera. Literally documenting joy in real time. How could it not be wondrous? A couple of months ago we introduced you to just such a photographer for the launch of FP Ever After, Jenavieve Belair, who spends her workdays photographing couple’s big days.

When Jenavieve sent us these images of gorgeous couple Alexa and Aaron’s California nuptials, we knew we had to share. Succulents, an incredible backdrop, and a Free People dress? Pure wedding day perfection. Scroll on to learn more about these two love birds and to get inspired:

Who? Alexa Safran, model, and Aaron Melzer, musician

How did you meet? (Alexa) I actually went to high school with the drummer of the local band Aaron was in back then. So we met multiple times without thinking anything of it, then one day our mutual love for the Lakers and Cinco de Mayo brought us together… We’ve been pretty inseparable ever since.

Date of your wedding? June 20, 2015

Wedding venue? SOKA University

First dance song? I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab for Cutie.

Your favorite moment of the day? (Alexa) Well it’s definitely hard to pick a favorite moment, but one of the funnier ones we took with us that day happened during the ceremony. The ring wouldn’t fit over his knuckle and it was hilarious!
