Alex & Karanne- Part 1

It's not often that you run in to a couple like Alex and Karanne. These 2 have been together and in love for almost 1/2 of their lives! They started dating when they were just teenagers, and have been together ever since! Their story is like a fairy tale from a book, and we were honored to be able to photograph one of the new chapter in their lives!
Alex and Karanne tied the knot at the gorgeous Orfila Winery in Escondido. We knew that this winery was right down the street from where we live, but for some reason had never been there. I was in total shock when I pulled up and saw how beautiful it is, and the best part was that it is just minutes from our house!! Alex and Karanne had a such a lovely wedding and such a lovely family. Here are a few...ok, more than a few... of my favorites from their day.
enjoy!
Also I wanted to thank my good friend Scott for helping me out for the first couple of hours :)

This was hysterical. It was the end of the night and all of a sudden Karanne says "Hey, we forgot to do the bouquet and garter toss!" By that time almost everyone was gone, so she rounded up her few friends that were left and went ahead and did it :)
