Shandise and Travis are Married! | Little Blue Bow Photography | San Diego Wedding Photographer | Admiral Kidd Club, Point Loma | San Diego Engagements and Weddings | DIY Bride
When you ask potential clients if they'd like to meet at a local coffee shop and they suggest a local Irish pub instead, you know you're going to mesh well! I met Shandise and Travis over a year ago as they were in their early planning stages for their San Diego wedding.
We met at Hooley's Irish Pub and chatted about their upcoming spring wedding. Shandise is the type of person you instantly love and Travis makes you feel like you've known him for years.
They are such a wonderful couple and I had the best time shooting their engagement session as well as their wedding this past May. Check out their romantic engagement session here.
Here is a small look at their beautiful, DIY spring wedding...
How gorgeous is Shandise's wedding hairstyle and wedding make-up?!? My jaw dropped when I saw her hair. It's so perfect for her style and photographs beautifully!
Talk about a hands-on bride! Shandise made all the wedding decor, painted all the signs and even made the sunflower bouquets! I love that she collected dozens of lace doilies during her wedding planning process to use for wrapping her homemade bouquets. There were personal and meaningful details in every aspect of this wedding.
A classic tuxedo will never go out of style. Travis was so dapper in his bow tie!
We stopped by Balboa Park for a few portraits on our way down to the wedding reception in Point Loma. I love this series of portraits. The rustic bridge and beautiful greenery are so perfect for this couple's style.
I love this image that my assistant Jamie (of Jamie Grant Photography) took as the bride and groom were about to go into their reception! Just stunning!
I love the keyhole back to her lace wedding dress! So beautiful!
The best man, maid of honor and Shandise's godfather made the best toasts! I love all the emotion and laughter. It was a genuine display of true friendship and a very close knit family.
Their families were having so much fun on the dancefloor!
Shandise and Travis, I wish you the best for a lifetime of happiness, love and laughter. I have no doubt that you will bring each other so much joy throughout your marriage.
