Wedding at The Crossings in Carlsbad
The day started at Lauren’s parents home in Carlsbad with all of her bridesmaids getting ready together. I was able to step in and take some detail shots amongst all the bustling excitement as everyone was getting hair and makeup ready.
Caleb was getting ready nearby with his brother. They were looking sharp. I think Caleb was anxious to see his gorgeous bride for the first time in her wedding dress.
It was a warm summer day in Southern California. Actually, it was pretty hot. So to keep cool, I scouted locations ahead of time. I found this nice spot that was secluded, where Lauren and Caleb could have their special moment in the shade. It was sort of this secret garden nearby.
It’s a military tradition to walk through an arc of drawn swords. The bride and groom must not pass until the groom kisses the bride.
