Intimate Bates Nut Farm Wedding | Kendall & Matt | San Diego Wedding Photographer

Intimate Bates Nut Farm Wedding Photography in San Diego// I truly can't say enough positive things about this day and this couple. The day started out quiet and intentional with an emotional first look to kick off the days events . This location at the Bates Nut Farm held a lot of history for this couple. It is a place where they had their first date AND also where Matt worked his first job. When Matt first saw Kendall the tears instantly streamed down his face, it was beyond a beautiful moment as Kendall reached out to wipe them away. It gives me the feels just thinking about it! If I could describe this music loving couple to someone who didn't know them, I would say they are the perfect combination of goofy and passionate. They don't take things too seriously and it was refreshing to be around them, to witness their beautiful love of life and each other. You'll have to scroll down to the end to see their wedding video (by Ryan Abribat) where you can hear their insanely awesome wedding vows.

If you're here for wedding inspiration then I fully encourage you to steal their table numbers idea. Each table was numbered and on the back showcased a photo of them each, side by side, at that age. So dang CUTE! I love me some old fashioned photos and incorporating them into your day. Be sure to peek grandma as the flower girl. Their bridal party was small & intimate (this is the way to go and I'd be happy to tell you why in another post OR feel free to ask me!) they each had their sister stand by their side. They told me about childhood memories and shared in the emotion of the day through their speeches with tears, fun dances and giggles. It was my first wedding at a pumpkin patch and it was truly the dreamiest. From the fall inspired jewel tones, the farm animals, to the way this couple emoted, the epic buttons that went all the way down Kendall's dress to the way the sunlight peeked through the trees and of course, the conga line/dance party that went well into the night and that cake smash. We had Matt roll up his sleeves to show off his tattoos, it was all so perfect and so totally & completely them- in every way. I peppered in a few animated GIFS to showcase Matt & Kendall's adorableness :)

I will end this with a quote from the Princess Bride simply because they included it in their ceremony and I would expect nothing less from this pair. Did I mention the pure perfection of this day? Because yeah, Princess Bride!! Flawless! "“Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us together today. Mawage, that blessed awangement, that dweam wifin a dweam. And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva. So tweasure your wuv.” CHEERS!!
