Chuck & Stacy Shaw | Wayfarers chapel & South Coast Botanic Garden Wedding!
On Tuesday April 25th, 2017 I got to witness and photograph this beautiful garden wedding for one of my dear wedding planner friends, Stacy from Sylver Weddings and Events!!!! Chuck and Stacy Shaw had their dream garden wedding at Wayfarers Chapel and South Coast Botanic Garden in Orange County, California.
Stacy chose these two wedding venues due to the role they played in her life growing up as a child, the memories they held for her, and so that her grandmother could be there with her on her wedding day!!!
On Sundays growing up as a child they would attend Wayfarers Chapel for church and afterwards they would enjoy the stunning view of the ocean together. They would go to South Coast Botanic Garden as often as they could to get away from the city life for a little while and they would always go to their favorite tree together. Stacy would make a mad dash for the tree as soon as they got there, she’d climb up onto it’s branches, and she’d spend HOURS there just hanging out with her grandmother.
During the reception at South Coast Botanic Garden, we snuck out to go to that same beautiful tree that her and her grandmother spent so much time at to get photos there! And yes…Stacy did indeed climb the tree in her wedding dress just like old times!
I absolutely LOVE it when my couples do the things that make them so uniquely them!
Being really good friends with the Stacy made this wedding day extra special for me to be there to photograph. Seeing the looks of pure joy + happiness and the love in their eyes throughout the entire wedding day melted my heart and made me cry only a few too many times! But I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I’m very thankful to have been there with them and to have been able to capture these beautiful memories for them! Their garden wedding was simply STUNNING and I absolutely LOVE all of the meaning + the thoughts behind each part of the wedding day!
I couldn’t be happier for these two love birds and I seriously can’t wait to see what they’re future together holds for them!
