Temecula wedding at Wilson Creek Winery by Ohana Photographers

greetings citizens. you’ve fallen into my trap! (said in my best super villain voice.) kidding. there’s no trap. i’m not a super villain. i’m not even a nigerian prince… yet. technically, i’ve already paid for the title. i’m just waiting to hear back from them.

i have to admit, as much as i LOVE when good wins (because bad is dumb) i’m always drawn to the dark side. with characters like the darths (especially maul and vader), the terminator, bellatrix, hans gruber, the joker, loki, the predator, agent smith, and john doe, just to name a lot, how can you not be? i can’t help it. they’re just so cool.

well, as cool as the villains are, i always root for the heroes, except for darth maul. man i was bummed when he died. couldn’t he have just escaped and left an opening for a spinoff star wars movie on a planet without jar jars, frolicking giant ticks, or steaming pile of sith darth vaders that yell noooo00 before throwing emperors down shafts? and don’t get me started about han shooting first. but i digress.

getting back to heroes, there are none cooler, or hotter, than amy and ruben. they’re super friends that just got super married!

wait, i’m getting ahead of myself. insert scene of superman flying around the earth to turn back time.

during our very first meeting amy and ruben mentioned something about kicking around an idea for a superhero themed wedding at wilson creek winery. everything for the following 5 to 10 minutes was inaudible due to the roaring cheers inside my head. needless to say, we geeked out and immediately knew these two were pure awesome.

months flew by after that meeting and before we knew it their wedding was here. we shot their engagement session at the san diego zoo just 2 days before their wedding and they were super relaxed. not what you’d expect from a couple about to suit up for a wedding in 48 hours, right?

wrong.

engaged couples please take note. just chill and don’t stress. give yourself a break from the wedding planning gulag and have some fun before, during, and after your wedding. your wedding will happen, and unless you are robots or your last name is Christ, it will probably not be letter perfect. at the end of the day, if you’re married to the one you love, who cares about everything else? if you know about our wedding then you know we had all kinds of stuff go wrong, but to this day we laugh about it and call it the best day ever.

after seeing our anniversary post, amy and ruben borrowed a page from our little book of how to have fun at your wedding, by having an epic battle with dairy products. they used cake. we used whipped cream. potato tomato. amy went one further by pulling off a sweet planking maneuver in the barrel room. advantage amy!

we can’t say enough about how fun these two are, but everyone can now take a page or two out of the amy and ruben guide to having fun at your wedding.

amy and ruben, thank you so much for choosing us to shoot your super wedding. we were stoked to be a part of it! i wish i could describe the feeling i get every time i look through my lens and see two people as happy together and in love as you are. all i know is it never gets old and it’s always awesome. thank you both. congratulations you two!

hope you had fun on your honeymoon in jamaica.
