Marian & Mark’s El Chorro wedding photos are jaw-droppingly stunning thanks to the gorgeous bride, incredible setting, and an overcast breeze that made everything move ever so slightly in the wind. Kudos to the amazing vendor team who pulled off this day without a hitch!
I asked Marian & Mark to tell me about their first impressions the day they met, and when they knew the other was “the one:”
Marian: “I don’t remember exactly when I first met Mark, but I remember that he was extremely kind and very fun to be around. When we went to a wedding together on our first date, I remember thinking, “Wow! He cleans up nice.” We spent the whole evening talking and laughing, and I had so much fun. The conversation was so free and easy, it was like we had been friends for years.
I knew Mark was the one during my family vacation in Carlsbad in summer 2013. I have a very large extended family and I remember enjoying cocktail hour with all my aunts, uncles, and cousins, and not having to worry about Mark. Any time I’d look over he’d be deeply engaged in a fun conversation with one of my family members.”
Mark: “My first impression of Marian was, “Wow, I can’t believe I get to go on a date with this beautiful lady.” And we proceeded to have one of the most fun nights of my entire life. She made me laugh, and I loved how smart she was and how she made me feel.
I also knew Marian was the one during that same family vacation in Carlsbad. There was a moment after the craziness of the day died down, and I very clearly remember thinking, “This girl is the one.” I couldn’t verbalize it at the time, but it must have been obvious because she said what I was thinking.”
Congrats to you both and thank you for the honor of photographing the first day of your marriage!
