I’m happy to share some images from Crystal and Garrett’s wonderful wedding at Monteleone Meadows in Murrieta Ca. I had a great time photographing their engagement session at the Mission Inn in Riverside, Ca, and knew from that day that the wedding was going to be a blast because they were such a fun couple to hang out with. This is the first time I’d photographed a wedding at Monteleone Meadows, and the staff and scenery was wonderful to work with. Crystal and Garrett had been together for a couple of years when he proposed. In Crystal’s words: ”Garrett and I met at a mutual friends wedding in 2005 (who was actually our minister and one of my bridesmaids). I always knew him as my brothers’ friend and he always knew me as the little sister of my brothers’. We connected again 2 years later at a friends party, however he refused to go on a date with me until he had my brothers’ approval (which took 3 months for Garrett to ask them! Good grief!) LOL. Garrett proposed to me on June 6, 2009. Garrett and I went on a picnic at the park and sat next to the waterfall in the lake. A storm was moving in about an hour later so I decided we needed to leave. As I was getting up Garrett pulled me back down and was there with a ring in hand asking for my hand in marriage. Here I was only concentrating on the rain that was about to down pour and Garrett was so nervous because he was thinking about proposing LOL. The following day we celebrated by going to dinner with our families where I heard all about how this has been planned for months, but Garrett was waiting for just the right time.” Garrett and Crystal have a beautiful baby girl who will turn two later this year, and are planning another sometime next year.
