Heidi + Gabriel’s Long Beach Wedding

Heidi and Gabriel’s wedding day was a beautiful celebration of a relationship built over ten years, as well as a demonstration of close family ties. 

Heidi was the sweetest bride ever. With her organized type A nature, she helped ensure that the detail shots were taken care of and out of the way so we could spend more time with her bridal party and not run behind time. 

The day was running behind so we got to the first look right before the ceremony’s start. Heidi and Gabriel had both lost one of their parents, an event that clearly impacted their wedding day choices. 

Heidi’s mother was a key part of their day and she was included in their first look by giving her a ring to symbolize their new family bond. Gabriel also included his sweet fur baby in the day as a part of the ceremony. 

The ceremony itself was also a beautiful love letter to their families, their stories, and God. I was so happy to be able to work with them to create such a gorgeous wedding day.
