Jill + Matt // The Blind Date

Jill + Matt are the perfect fit. A little faith in some good friends and a double date set the spark that has since created a relationship described as inseparable and meant for one another.

Perhaps my favorite aspect to this wedding was that it was simple, yet so beautiful. Jill got ready at her parents house; the wedding dress hanging in the bedroom she grew up in. We can't take all the credit for the story in this trailer as Heather Puhek from Beauty and the Beach was asking the questions, but we just happened to be there, so why not film, right???

As Jill and the girl finished up, Matt was waiting at the church with his best friend. The reception was held at the one and only Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda. As the sun touched the hillside and the day unveiled the evening, Jill + Matt were surrounded by the closest of family and friends.

A very special thank you to Gabriel Ryan from Gabriel.Ryan.Photographers. He was extremely accommodating throughout the day and gave us the flexibility to get creative with the coverage.

Gabriel also happened to be kind enough to lend us the photo you see below. Click here to check out his blog post of the day, where you will find more stunning imagery from this very talented man.

Keeping in the simple theme, we give you Jill + Matt. A simple romance. documented. enjoy.

On a separate note, I would like to give a shout out to Eric from Extreme DJ for always rockin' the reception. In fact, on this occasion, Ben and I teamed up with Gabriel and Carlie in a new tradition. For lack of a better term, I'm going to refer to this from now on as "Ghostriding the Cake". LOL, enjoy
