Keys Creek Lavender Farm Wedding Part I
Leah + Armen

There are a lot of ways that I could tell this story,

but here’s the best way I know how:

Days like this, Leah + Armen‘s Wedding Day, are our ‘Remember When’s.

The Wedding was to take place at Keys Creek Lavender Farm, an independently-run family farm in San Diego County.

Away from the Southern California sprawl, the farm is a remote and rural hideway,

and comes with the scent of lavender wafting through the air…


On the morning of her wedding, Leah is radiant,

 And the best part?

She is surrounded by giddy friends and loving family,

who traveled from India to be with Leah on her special day.

One thing I love about Leah + Armen’s Wedding

is that every detail was hand-picked and personal:

From her flirtatious purple pumps

to the vintage-inspired dresses – and that’s only the beginning!

Although the elements of the Wedding were beautiful, the character of the people gathered was what shined.

The happiness of these wonderful people was palpable:

it was nearing time for Leah + Armen’s First Look!

Before the First Look,

I remember Armen stating, “Today is my Wedding Day.”

It gave me goosebumps: it seemed so natural, yet was also a paradigm-shift.

It was his Wedding Day, and Armen was ready.

The men gathered to surrounded him in prayer

on the open porch next to a lavender field,

And Armen waited for his Love..

Isn’t this exciting?!

He turned around, and they were lost in each others’ eyes.

I had to catch my breath, it was so tender

 and sweet.

They were moments away from marrying their best friend!

As I’ve said before, the hardest thing about being a photographer is capturing images while tearing up…

Aren’t they an adorable pair? The world is a better place because of their being together.

In fact, I think that they included the whole world in their wedding party!

Leah + Armen are adored and supported by a great community of people, as you can see:

They all happen to look like Anthropologie models, and they’re so much fun together.

Photographing them was a blast.

I guess that’s why they call it a Wedding Party! Ha..

 The moment for the ceremony to begin was drawing near, and the preparations were complete.

Soon, walking down the aisle would be Zeke the dapper Ring Bearer,

Sydney the giggling Flower Girl,

And Leah, the breath-taking Bride!

We can’t wait to share the ceremony with you in Part II!

It was unforgettable.
