They originally met at The Ohio State University (yes we got an OHIO photo!). Sean proposed on one of the hottest days in NYC. Caroline was wondering why they had to tromp all over Central Park in the heat. Sean wanted to propose at Belvedere Castle. It was 2.5 miles away. Once they got there, they realized it was closed due to the extreme heat. Sean scrapped his castle plans and just got down on one knee. Which of course cheered Caroline up immediately, though sent her into ugly-crying. She eventually remembered to say yes and the rest of the day was salvaged – never mind the heat.

They held a super intimate wedding at one of my all time favorite spots, Estancia La Jolla. They wed on the Olive Lawn and had dinner and dancing in the Adobe Restaurant. Their wedding was truly beautiful and I love how beautiful Estancia is for photography!

I was setting Caroline up for a photo of her and the back of her dress in front of the beautiful french doors in the Caretaker’s Suite when her father who was waiting outside saw her for the first time. This little series ensued which was so heartwarming:
