Wow, do we have a story to share with you. Picture an intimate private estate (compete with horses, a donkey and a cute pig!) candid smiles, and a touch of unexpected rain. Welcome to Mackenzie and Eric’s unforgettable journey from Berkeley to Nashville, and back home to Southern California. As a wedding photographer duo, it was such a genuine honor to be a part of Mackenzie and Eric’s love story in San Diego. Their journey, from Berkeley to Nashville and the decision to tie the knot close to home in a joyful, intimate day has added another inspirational, emotional reason why we love our job!
Love Blossoms at UC Berkeley
It all began in the lively college vibes of UC Berkeley. Imagine a 20-year-old Southern California girl meeting a 21-year-old guy from the East Coast, Philly to be exact. Destiny stepped in when a mutual friend played Cupid, orchestrating a date party that kick-started Mackenzie and Eric’s love story. The week was nothing short of magical, and just like that, they became official.
Post-graduation, the dynamic duo decided to spice things up and moved to the vibrant city of Nashville. For the past three years, they’ve dived headfirst into the city’s culture – outdoor escapades, live music escapades, culinary delights, and uncovering hidden gems. Nashville, you’ve been good to these two!
Engagement: Italian Elopement or the San Diego Wedding of Dreams?
Fast forwarding to last January, they found themselves on the brink of a new adventure – engagement. Originally planning to elope in Italy, they had a change of heart, deciding to bring their nearest and dearest into the mix. Here’s where the plot thickens – enter the generous offer of a venue from Mackenzie’s maid of honor’s parents. Suddenly, what was meant to be an intimate elopement transformed into a full-blown celebration surrounded by the warmth of family.
Rain, colorful vibes and non-stop smiles.
Now, let’s dive into the wedding day – a joyous celebration where love and laughter echoed through every moment. The atmosphere was as easygoing and fun as Mackenzie and Eric themselves. From heartfelt vows to a dance floor that could rival any party, genuine happiness permeated every corner.
What caught our attention the most? The fact that Mackenzie and Eric never stopped smiling. Their love created a contagious energy that enveloped everyone, turning the entire day into a celebration of pure joy. But, here’s the kicker: rain showers decided to join the party, causing a slight delay. Did it dampen the spirits? Not a chance.
Instead, it became a testament to Mackenzie and Eric’s resilience and their ability to find joy in every circumstance. Laughter echoed under the shelter of umbrellas, turning the unexpected rain into magical moments. Happy tears, heartfelt speeches, and tender moments made the day extra special. The rain, far from being an obstacle, became a unique element that added character to the celebration. Then, they escaped with newlywed bliss in a gorgeous vintage getaway car.
These are the moments we live for – capturing the authenticity of love in all its forms.
Mackenzie and Eric’s wedding, with its relaxed vibe, endless smiles, and unexpected dash of rain, is etched in our memories as a testament to the power of love and the unbridled joy it brings.
