Heritage Estate in Arroyo Grande is simply a great place to have a really good party. It’s also a great place to get married. The gardens are spacious, well kept, well laid out and beautiful all at the same time. If you are having a wedding and have a lot of people to organize, you can all stay in the house on the property. This allows you to set up as you want and at the pace you want. My cool clients, Jim and Michelle set everything up the day before and relaxed until the wedding. Isn’t that a wonderful idea? It really helped everyone to enjoy themselves.
The property is large enough to keep the Bride separate from the Groom for pictures before the wedding. I work closely with my assistant so my clients don’t see each other until walking down the aisle. The traditional way is to see each other for the first time during the ceremony but you can also do a first look. A first look is when you take a private space and have a quiet moment together before the day begins. It’s also a great way to get some beautiful pictures that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Someone recently asked me what my ideal client is. I took a moment and thought about all of my favorite Brides. All of them had one thing in common….they all were do it yourself Brides. Of course, I recommend a wedding planner to take away the stress, don’t get me wrong. When a Bride spends 100 hours on all the cool details, I really appreciate that and want to photograph it the way they envisioned. Every wedding is different and capturing all the details is so much fun!
