Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding

I had the honor of shooting Monique + Jeremy’s gorgeous Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows wedding recently. Their wedding took place the day after Thanksgiving, a natural time when friends and family are all around! The event took place at Mountain Meadows Golf Course, and the day could not have been more beautiful. The weather was perfect and the light cooperated wonderfully! Best of all, of course, was seeing Monique + Jeremy interact with each other and their family on their wedding day. It’s hard to say who feels more lucky in love among the two of them :)

We had their first look on the Mountain Meadows grounds – they were so thrilled to see each other!

After the first look, we had an opportunity to spend some time on the golf course before the ceremony. No coaching necessary here – I have to assume they must look adoringly at each other all the time! :)

After spending some time getting family portraits, it was time for the ceremony!

As part of their ceremony, Monique + Jeremy passed around the wedding rings to their guests before exchanging rings. It was a lovely way to see their guests taking part in the wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony we had more time with Monique + Jeremy on the golf course! I have to say, this is a luxury because typically I shoot family portraits right after the ceremony. Since we had completed those, we were able to take advantage of the gorgeous sunset light. If I could only bottle this light! :)

As we went on to the reception, I noticed a number of Disney-inspired details. Monique shared with me that when she and Jeremy started dating, they discovered they both had Disneyland passes. A trip to Disneyland was their second date. To this day, both of them look at Disney as their “happy place,” which of course makes sense as it’s the happiest place on Earth! They wanted to tie in this shared love of Disney without being over-the-top, and did so in a number of subtle, but noticeable ways, from the purple hues in their reception, to their cake topper, to table signs of the two of them in front of their favorite rides!

Monique + Jeremy immediately moved to their first dance after they entered the reception…

This was followed by toasts from their loved ones…cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding

They had the typical father/daughter and mother/son dances, as well as a mother/daughter dance! I just love this! Dads get a lot of time in the spotlight on the wedding day, but Mom deserves it just as much! :)cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding cmp_0662 Disney-inspired Mountain Meadows Wedding
