Shelldance Orchid Gardens Wedding [Rachel + Aaron] // Pacifica Wedding Photographers

College friends who were not so close turned into life partners. This is story of Rachel + Aaron. Their personality is opposite aka they balance each other out (Just like Torain and I). Their wedding and celebration of their love at Shelldance Orchid Gardens in Pacifica, California was the sweetest. celebration They decided to have small numbers of guests and it was intimate, just like how they wanted.

After being together for 6 years, they got engaged in Half Moon Bay which another favorite location for us to photograph.

Shelldance Orchid Gardens were every photographers’ dream. Between the perfect lighting in their green house, the ocean view outside of the Shelldance Orchid Gardens and perfect foggy weather in Pacifica, I am not sure which was my favorite. Oh I almost forgot, lots of air plants in the gardens. And it is also home to a few cats. We witnessed couple cats roaming around during their ceremony and reception.

When Rachel and Aaron first reached out to us, they said they are camera shy (But isn’t everybody, including us? — Unless your job requires you to be exposed by camera every week) and feels weird about posing. They were especially attracted our work because of genuine moments we photographed on wedding days as well as less posing. So it was important for us to make them feel comfortable in front of our camera, even with our documentary wedding photography approach.

On the day of their wedding, these two sweet souls couldn’t be more comfortable and be more themselves. They couldn’t stop getting emotional from being so happy knowing that they will be doing life together for the rest of their life. When these two teared up, our eyes started getting watery as well.

These two got ready at Seal Cove Inn in Moss Beach where they had dreamy trees on their “backyard”. We photographed their first look here before we had out to Pacifica for the wedding.

We are so happy we got to be part of the very beginning of new journey and Rachel and Aaron chose us to document their sweet sweet celebration.
