JT+Gloria ~ La Cuesta Ranch Wedding

Check out a few pics from JT & Gloria’s La Cuesta Ranch Wedding!bride and groom kiss at sunset with hills in the background

I’ve know JT nearly my whole life ~ he moved to SLO and ended up at the same elementary school as me. From that point on, JT was a part of the crew…a pretty cool crew if I’m being honest. Needless to say, this was a great wedding!…and the speeches were like a stroll down memory lane. I think it was about the time that Tyler reminisced about the term “buttcheese,” that I lost it completely; I dropped a bag of camera gear and watched the contents spill into the dirt! Fortunately, at that point, I’d already collected enough stellar pics of the day that I could rest easy.

Gloria’s smile is just illuminating…and it’s kind of contagious (how about that beautiful bouquet by Nikki at FluidBloom!?)
