Marcus and Michelle’s Wedding at Green Gables Estate

It finally arrived!  My big sister’s wedding day!  It was gorgeous and everything came together so well.  There were many last minute details, but it all turned out beautifully! She and Marcus were married at Green Gables Wedding Estate in San Marcos, CA and it was such a cool venue.  The bridal suite was lovely, the ceremony area was darling and the reception area was huge. It was such a perfect setting for a wedding and my stunning sister fit right in! Her peach and white details were so elegant and her wedding dress fit her to a tee.  She was definitely a picturesque, blushing bride.

I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time and I just felt so elated to have been a part of it. I did my part as a maid of honor to tend to all Michelle’s needs, but I’m not gonna lie, it was hard to juggle it all.  Not that I was stressed, but the wedding photographer in me wanted to take pictures of EVERYTHING, but it just wasn’t possible.  I did as much as I could, but my main focus was Michelle and taking care of her to make sure she had an amazing day!  My biggest regret was not getting more photos of her and her new husband.  I eventually had to relinquish my desire to shoot every picture possible and let the official wedding photographers do their job.  That’s what they were there for anyway, right?!  With the help my fiancè, Nick, we were actually able to practice our skills at recording video with my Canon 5d Mark II. I don’t claim to be a videographer, but it sure was fun capturing a different side of things. Now we will all have the memories to cherish in video form!  I could ramble on and on about the wedding day and how amazing my sister is and this and that…. but I’m sure you’d like to see the photos that I WAS able to take!  Here’s one of the very rare times I actually show up in a couple photos (thanks to some willing friends who manned my camera for a few shots).  See if you can spot me 😉  

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Blackshire!!
