Sammie and Dave. Good lord, where do I EVEN begin?!
Vanessa, who brought these magical people into my life, called Sammie and Dave “unicorns.” They are the once-in-a-lifetime, semi-mythical creatures whose presence is awe-inspiring. Our vision is clouded with rainbows and sparkles at the mention of their names.
This may sound excessive (and I DO love to exaggerate), but seriously, Sammie and Dave are two of my favorite people EVER. They are unquestioningly loyal to their friends and family, and the impeccable style that flooded their wedding day was never a source of worry or anxiety for them during the planning process (thanks to their full trust in Vanessa, who never disappoints). They maintained their focus on loved ones, celebrating each other, and having an incredible amount of fun. Sammie even insisted on including a “vendor group photo” on their shot list so they could have images with me and Vanessa. Seriously?! We adore them so much.
And when a wedding day comes to a close with the groom performing “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins onstage (backed by The Shrines) with guests cheering like rock band groupies, you KNOW you’re part of something really special.
Here are a few of my favorite San Luis Obispo wedding photos from Sammie and Dave’s stellar celebration. And don’t miss the highlight reel from Etch Films at the end of the post!
