Lauren & Joel's Wedding

Will and I attended our friend's wedding last weekend. Lauren and I were cheerleaders together in high school (Go Matadors!) and have remained good friends over the years. Lauren met Joel while working at Best Buy while she was attending the University of the Pacific in Stockton. The first time we met Joel we knew that he was a great fit for our friend Lauren and we were so excited when he popped the question! Their wedding was beautiful and I couldn't have been happier for my friends. Since I was a guest, I held myself back and stayed out of the way with my photo taking. Lauren and I talked a few weeks prior and she asked me to get as many shots as I could and I was more than happy to oblige. I wanted to sit back, relax, and enjoy watching my friends, but I won't lie and say that I wasn't itching to take even more photos than I did!

There were traditional Filipino customs in their wedding - the veil, rope, and coin ceremonies were very cool and something that I had never seen before!
