Rustic Backyard Wedding – Cat & Jon

Rustic Backyard Wedding – Cat & Jon

Nicole and I are so very fortunate to work with so many amazing couples.  I swear, we really do have the BEST brides & grooms!  This wedding in particular was a very special wedding for me.  I met Cat at work while we were both assigned to the same project and anyone who knows Cat for longer than 10 min will tell you, she really is one cool cat (pun intended)…  Seriously though, she is the sweetest.  As I became better friends with Cat, I learned more about Jon and wow he seemed like one rad dude as well.  Being that he is a fellow musician, entrepreneur and punk rocker I knew he’d be my kind of guy and I was right we hit it off over burgers and beers at Cheers in Ramona!

Unfortunately though, it seems as if the nicest people have the worst luck at times…

This was the case with the months leading up to their rustic backyard wedding.  I was actually the 3rd photographer booked to do their wedding as sadly both of their initial planned photographers ended up having scheduling conflicts.  So there was that bad luck string….then the live band that had been set to play disappeared and formally cancelled the week of the wedding.  As you can see, the wedding planning was a bit of a bumpy road.

But there is a happy ending…their rustic backyard wedding couldn’t have turned out more perfect or even flowed any smoother than it did.

As their sign said – “Best Day Ever”, and it was.  As you will see from the photos, Cat & Jon’s smiles were beaming from ear to ear.

The best part?  They did it all.  It was at their house. On the 12 picnic tables Jon and Cat built.  A touching ceremony in their backyard led by a close friend of theirs surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Nicole and I are just happy to have been able to be apart of it all…

Here are some of our favorite moments of the day – I hope you enjoy em!
