In Part One, we saw Renee and Jimmy’s touching wedding ceremony in San Clemente, plus got acquainted with the bridal party, the proud parents, and their adorable son. We’ve been excited to reveal Part Two for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the emotion that comes through when the bride & groom see each other for the first time – it was hard not to get choked up ourselves.
It’s always such a sincere joy to be able to capture the nuances of an earnest romance like Renee and Jimmy’s. In our more candid shots, you can see the overwhelming emotions on each of their faces. For the most part, it’s like we weren’t even there and they were in a world of our own.
Moving on to the reception, our newlyweds make a playful entrance to the applause of their family and friends. We captures some action shot of the first dance, complete with dips, twirls and some tender moments. Renee’s dance with her brother was a very special moment. It was a time when they both could celebrate the memory of their father, have a dance in his honor, and be reminded of how much he would have loved to be a part of that special day.
Jimmy and Renee are in high spirits through all of the wedding traditions. Renee cuts an elegant cake adorned with their names in purple frosting and feeds Jimmy the first bite. Jimmy ends up with Renee’s garter around his head before tossing it off a lucky gentleman; Renee’s sense of humor shines throw with an effortless toss of her bouquet over her shoulder. There is never a care in the world that can bring these two down!
Their live band really kicked off the party and everyone hit the dance floor ready to get down. I love the dancing party shots – catching them in the moment – if you look at people’s expressions, you can definitely tell these guys were in for the long haul that night! Thank you again Jimmy & Renee! We adore your little family and are so proud to have shared these moments with you all. We wish you the warm support of your family & friends for the rest of your lives.
