Tuscan Villa Estate Wedding Photography : Anthony + Erica

This is the gorgeous wedding of Anthony and Erica….a wedding I photographed at the end of 2009 (and am just now getting to blog…I know, I know).  The wedding took place at the Tuscan Villa Estate in Simi Valley, a GORGEOUS estate nestled in the mountains of Simi Valley.

This wedding was full of emotion, laughter and celebration… was simply perfect!

Ahhhhhh, the first glance…such a special, emotional and awesome choice.  Here are just a few captures from Anthony and Erica’s super sweet first glance.

One of the big benefit’s to a first glance is that we spend the time before the ceremony to do all the formal portraits so they are done and out of the way giving you more time to relax and enjoy your celebration with your guests as soon as your ceremony is over.  AND, we have the flexibility to have better control of the timing of the day giving us ample time for some amazing photographs!

Ceremony time!!!  Anthony waiting for his bride to come down the isle (and I’m sure, looking up to his mom who we know was looking down upon him smiling and overcome with joy).

SO much heartfelt emotion!  This was absolutely one of those weddings that I had to hold back my own tears from behind my camera.

A stolen moment between Erica and her mom just after the ceremony <3

Time to celebrate!!  Talk about an awesome grand entrance!!  Anthony and Erica did an amazing footloose rendition as they made their way to their reception.

When Anthony proposed to Erica he had a super cute scavenger hunt all planned out for her, complete with friends and family from out of town sending her all over town in search of her next clue, all while one being video taped of course.  They made the video of the scavenger hunt/proposal into THE.MOST.ADORABLE video that they shared at the wedding.  It was the sweetest, most romantic thing EVER!

First dance…….:)

In lieu of a cake Command Performance Catering put on an awesome ice cream sandwich bar…SO FUN!  And, perfect for a ring shot at the end of the night.

Thanks again Jen for coming out to shoot this wedding with me!
