Irvine Wedding Photography – Raffaele & Nicole 05/25/2013

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting Raffaele & Nicole’s wedding!  Raffaele & Nicole are so great together, acting like an old married couple at times!  In fact, they have been married for over 3 years now!  Saturday was the day they made their civil ceremony, from 3 years ago, official in the church and in front of family and friends!  I originally met Nicole and her family when shooting her sister’s wedding almost four years ago.  It was great to capture another important event for this fun and close knit family!

There are so many amazing images from Raffaele & Nicole’s wedding day that I couldn’t post them all here on my blog!  Keep reading for some of my favorites!

Here are some of the great vendors that made Raffaele & Nicole so great!!
Ceremony Venue – St Elizabeth Ann Seton
Reception Venue – Prego
Flowers – Amazing Blooms
DJ – Tony Tartaglia
Videographer – Mission Visual
Photographer – Rustin Michael
Photographer’s Assistant – the amazing Natalie Fong!!!
