Evangeline & Daniel

After this young couple met in high school they knew they didn’t want to spend another day without each other.  So on July 25, 2015 these love birds tied the knot at the Bayonet & Black Horse Golf Course in Seaside, California.

The drive ended up taking the ISM team 2 1/2 hours to the location since there was an accident on the freeway.  Thankfully, everyone was ok, and they still made it to the wedding in time to capture the couple getting ready.

For the day’s events, Allen was accompanied by Frank and Jennifer for this lovely adventure.  Allen worked with the Gimbal while checking up on all the camera operators and communicating the day's events to produce creative shots using the drone before the ceremony and during the glamour shots. Frank worked on the time-lapse using the GoPro for the first time and covered Daniel's expressions during the ceremony and reception using the Sony A57.  Jennifer covered Evangeline during the ceremony while getting great shots during the glamour session around the golf course with the couple, she had a little too much fun with them.

Eva and Daniel chose this venue because it had an ethereal feel to it, being just a stroll away from the oceans edge.  The day of the wedding was slightly overcast with a touch of a breeze that added to the graceful nature of the landscape.

The ceremony and reception both took place at this great location.  The ceremony portion was as perfect as can be, especially with the added touch of humor by their good friend and officiant when he announced them as husband and wife, adding on, “May the force be with you.”  Rather than lighting a unity candle, the couple blended two different color sands to commemorate their new life together.  As they left the ceremony, Eva was skipping down the aisle in joy now that she’d married her best friend.

When it came time to make their grand entrance into the reception the couple skipped their way into room to the song “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall & Oates. Lets just say, it was adorable. 

The seating arrangements were displayed on the lids of their tiny hershey kisses filled mason jars. It was pretty convenient; that way the guests had something to snack on while they waited for the delicious dinner.

The overall themed decor for their wedding was Disney by the Sea... The fact that their cake toppers were mini versions of themselves wearing Mickey and Minnie ears proves how much of a fairytale life they will be living together.  

The love in the room was definitely on display when the DJ played a recording of Daniel’s father, who couldn’t be at the wedding. He had a special message to his son and new daughter-in-law “Congratulations to you two! I’d love to be with you today to hug you tightly on your wedding day. It's impossible...but I love you guys a lot.  I want you two to have fun and be happy.”  As his fathers words were spoken, tears were evident throughout the room, but a surge of happiness over took them, knowing Dani's father was there in spirit. 

Once the music started the dancing didn't stop!  Practically everyone who attended the wedding was on the dance floor.  It was a lot of fun not only for the guests, but for our team as well. Frank and Jennie couldn't control their desire to boogie on the dance floor, so naturally, Jennie pulled Allen over to the dance floor where the team attempted to bust a move...unsuccessfully. 

Congratulations Eva and Daniel on your many more adventures to come!
