Derek and Charlene’s Moniker Warehouse Wedding was all of our favorite things. They are huge lovers of the outdoors – you may remember their Big Bear Engagement shoot we blogged earlier this year. From the greenery draped from the ceilings and the sweeeetest smelling rosemary wall for their seating chart, everything was natural and earthy, bringing the outdoors inside. To add to the magic, our absolute favorite neighborhood restaurant, Buona Forchetta, did their catering. Handmade Italian pizzas for dinner and the most creamy delicious gelato for dessert. Perfect right?!
Derek proposed to Char in Joshua Tree while on a rad camping trip, so we thought it would be perfect to do their first look and photos on their wedding day at the Desert Garden in Balboa Park. It tied in beautifully with their story and desert vibes. These two are such darlings and sweet friends, and it was such a joy to capture their love story!
