Moniker Warehouse San Diego

When it comes to wedding venues, the Moniker Warehouse in San Diego will not disappoint. I loved spending the day here with Kara and Josh on their wedding day and capturing the celebration of them starting their lives together. Plus, you’ve gotta LOVE a good shout out to America especially when it comes to converse and the groom’s choice of footwear. Not to mention, boys being boys and throwing each other in to the pool. Kara and her all girl crew, AKA bridesmaids, were looking as beautiful as ever too.   I’m pretty DARN positive Kara never stopped smiling the entire day!! I don’t blame her. The wedding and day was PERFECT!!!

Bride’s Favorite Moment

Kara’s favorite part of her and Josh’s wedding day was when her father gave his welcome speech. He nailed it!! It perfectly embodied who Kara and Josh are as a couple. I think it gave everyone there a great sense of how and why  the two of them fell in love! Well done!

Groom’s Favorite Moment

Josh, without hesitation, went with his favorite moment being their first look. Kara couldn’t have looked anymore beautiful!!! Josh opened up a little and told me that even though he isn’t a very expressive person by nature, seeing Kara actually took his breath away. Now that’s saying something about how beautiful she looked!

The two of them agreed that they both wanted to remember the amazing feeling of having everyone they love in the same room, letting loose, and having a blast. They both appreciated SO MUCH everyone who traveled from all over the world (yes, WORLD!) to make their day that much more special. Kara couldn’t have said it better when she said, “We have the best friends and family!” I mean hey, if they’re traveling from across the world to come to your wedding, I do think they have some good ones.

The Honeymoon

Josh and Kara snuck away to Moorea, Tahiti. They enjoyed a stay in a over-water bungalow at the Hilton Resort where they also enjoyed a Polynesian couples massage, a private dinner for two on the beach, snorkeling with sharks, and exploring the lush jungle landscape on an ATV safari. Sounds like Tahiti was also taking their breath away!

Can I just say that all of Tahiti sounds like it would be my favorite! Josh and Kara decided that their personal favorite from the honeymoon was waking up to a gorgeous sunrise and taking a dip in the ocean from their personal deck! Hello paradise!

Provo City Center Temple | Hailey + Nick | Utah Wedding Photographer

Wedding party with bride and groom front and center | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer

Provo City Center Temple

I can’t start this off without talking about how beautiful the Provo City Center Temple is. To start with, it is a Provo landmark, originally standing as a tabernacle for as long as I can remember. It was consumed by fire and then restored to the LDS temple it is today. It has so much history to tell and if it wasn’t beautiful enough on it’s own, which it TOTALLY is, now throw a wedding in to the mix and it is nothing but complete perfection for Hailey and Nick’s big day!!

Hailey shared with me that walking into the temple together was one of her ABSOLUTE favorite moments. Adding to that, the moment when the two of them were married with all of their families surrounding them. It was perfect.

Groom’s Favorite Moment

Nick echoed Hailey perfectly, saying that walking into the temple together was his favorite moment. Then seeing all of their families inside. He also told me a few other things that are his favorites but I was forbidden from adding any of that. I’ll just say this, they’re newlyweds and I thought what he shared with me was HILARIOUS!!!  Nice touch Nick, Nice touch indeed.

Father and son | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer

What They Remember Most

They both remember how happy they were together on their wedding day and the speeches that were given at the family dinner. Sounds memorable, for sure! There isn’t anything like the feeling that exists on wedding days. It makes my  job that much more fun!

Bridesmaids and wedding party | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer Bridesmaids with bride | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding PhotographerThe Honeymoon

Hailey and Nick haven’t actually gone on their official honeymoon yet because they are still in school at BYU. They did get away to Park City for the weekend after the wedding.  I’m sure it was romantic and just what they needed.  Their REAL honeymoon is planned for May and they will be heading to Cancun, Mexico!!! Hello beaches and sun!

Favorite Part of the Honeymoon

Seeing that it was pretty short, since it was only over the weekend, they said it was beautiful and added that the breakfast they enjoyed both days was SOOOOO good. They can’t wait to get to the beach and enjoy spending a week together without the stress of work or school! Sounds good to me!

Tulum Mexico Zamas Hotel

The beautiful and tropical Tulum Mexico was the most beautiful destination wedding for Diane and Kevin. With coconut trees, lots of sand, and plenty of beach, the Zamas hotel nestled right up along the Carribean ocean, was the PERFECT venue for these two! Take me back!!! HA!!!

They both want to remember all of their family and friends enjoying themselves with good food, drinks, music, and the ocean all around.

Wedding Decor | Brooke Bakken | Destination Wedding Photography The Honeymoon

At first they were planning on a European getaway full of never ending feast of  pasta and gelato. However, they decided to stay in the good ole U.S. of A. They will be exploring the back-country on their one year anniversary by hiking and camping in one of America’s oldest and most cherished national parks, Yosemite. This will satisfy their love for the outdoors and adventure. After a few nights in Yosemite, they’ll make their way to Sequoia National Park, and then make their way back to their favorite U.S. City, San Francisco, to hopefully experience Thomas Keller’s culinary masterpiece at French Laundry. Sounds AMAZING, doesn’t it?!

Salt Lake Spring Wedding | Jane + Chris | Utah Wedding Photographer

Thanksgiving point wedding | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer

Salt Lake Spring Wedding

Jane and Chris embraced having a spring wedding from the colors of the bouquet to the little girls dresses. The green on the trees and the tulips at the Salt Lake temple created a romantic setting for family and friends to gather and celebrate their commitment to each other for eternity. It added to the feeling of it being the happiest day EVER for the two of them.

Salt Lake temple Spring wedding | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding PhotographerBride’s Favorite Moment

It’s hard to narrow down a favorite when there are so many, right?! Jane had to go with marrying her sweetheart as her ABSOLUTE favorite moment! She said that looking at his face across the alter definitely made her day and added that it was probably the happiest moment of her entire life! I don’t blame here. Staring at your sweetheart as you commit to eternity together is a tough moment to beat!!!Wedding at Salt Lake Temple | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer

Groom’s Favorite Moment

With so much happening on your wedding day, there really is are so many moments from the day that could easily be favorites. Chris decided that he loved seeing all of the people he loves all in the one room. And of course, marrying the love of his life!!! That is definitely a perk. Aren’t these two the CUTEST?!?!

What To Remember

All of the happy feelings make up what both Jane and Chris remember most about that day. There was never a dull moment and everything felt so perfect. I personally think that all the perfect weather that took place at their Salt Lake Temple spring wedding added to all of those happy feelings. There is just something about spring…love is in the air!

Winter Beauty

These two… What can I say about them?  From a brother that set them up, to a night of illness that almost kept them from being together, they are meant for each other. I love spending time with couples during bridals and seeing their relationship in action. I could’ve hung out with these two and enjoyed Utah’s winter beauty all day, with their loving stares and Hailey’s great smile, I couldn’t help but laugh right along with them. Kind of felt like I was just another BFF and not the third wheel. LOL!  And Nick, he looks great with a bouquet. He was workin’ it!!!

How They Met

Hailey met Nick through her older brother! When Nick left to serve an LDS mission and train in what is called the MTC he was assigned compnanion with Hailey’s brother. For 2 years they served in the same area together and came back at the same time. Hailey then met Nick at the beginngin of their first semester of college at BYU .

Love Story

Leave it to brothers to be the jokesters but in this case it definitely worked out for these two. At first it was that kind of joking attitude about getting Hailey’s brother to pass a good word along to get Nick to ask her out. Then one day, he got Hailey’s number from the brother and all jokes aside, he asked her out!!!

But when the day of their first date came around, Nick had to cancel because got sick. Not two weeks later, Hailey’s cousins, who were all at BYU with her, had planned this big group date to go to the Crater at the Homestead. As fate would have it, Hailey didn’t have anyone to ask, so she asked Nick. She says, “I was terrified because I had never asked a guy out. EVER!!!  But he said yes and we went on the date and had the best time ever! And ever since that first date we just never stopped talking to each other and going on dates. We just couldn’t get enough of each other.”  Swoon…

Falling in Love

Hailey knew that feeling setting in the night before the semester ended before heading back home to Texas, was love. Her and Nick had seen each other practically almost every day since that first date and she couldn’t imagine leaving for the summer. You know when you think about leaving someone and never want to be without them, that is love.  And sure enough, when they had to say goodbye in the parking lot that night Hailey NEVER wanted to leave his arms. She cried (a lot) and knew that she had never felt like this about anyone ever before nor would she ever.  So there you have it, that’s the night Hailey realized, without any doubt, that she was head over heels in love with Nick.

The Proposal

You’ve gotta give Nick props for his secrecy and planning so far in advance. He knew that Hailey wanted a surprise and a surprise it was! The week before their engagement they were driving the Alpine Loop looking at all the aspen trees with carvings in them and Hailey remembers how she couldn’t help but mention the tree that they had carved their initials into earlier that summer. She suggested that they hike up to the next weekend to check it out and see what it looked like. Apparently that was all part of his plan! So the next Saturday comes around and hiking they go! They hiked up to the spot and on the way down, Nick brought Hailey over to this place where he had taken her on a surprise picnic date a few weeks earlier. Surpsie, there was a blanket with rose petals on it waiting for them  and he knelt down and asked her to marry him (Give me all the heart eye emojis!!!). Everything was perfect from the weather, the fall trees, the ring, the man… everything!!!

What They Love

These two  like to go on hikes together and try new foods together. Most of the time it is Nick taking Hailey  to try a new food that she hasn’t ever tried so he can see if she is  brave enough to try it and then see if she’ll like it.

Spring Pastels That Will Make a Statement | Utah Wedding Photographer

Boquet and flowers for spring wedding | Brooke Bakken | Utah Wedding Photographer

Spring Pastels

We have all been patiently awaiting the appearance of spring and with that means spring weddings are creeping up on us. With earthy tones, paired with spring pastels, you’ll find the perfect color combo for any upcoming wedding.  The palette of green, pale pink, blush, and peach create a beautiful and natural beauty I hope you’ll LOVE as much as I do.

The Bold

A bold navy suit presents a  contrast and makes a statement among the spring pastels palette  that is perfect for this time of year. Pairing a classic navy suit, with  the pink hues found in all of the floral design plus the added femininity found with this lacey, deep V gown, it is no surprise that adding navy blue to the mix brings the right amount of masculinity to balance the equation. It navy wasn’t strong enough to stand on it’s own, and it is already giving all of the pastel florals that extra pop, the sage greenery also creates a beautiful bold contrast of color. Not to mention, with hints of brown peeking through the greenery it continues to add that much more of an earthy, masculine vibe.

The Cake

If you can’t appreciate how complimentary sage green and pink are then I don’t think we can be friends. Okay, just kidding. Or am I? But really, this cake is screaming spring with it’s pink blossoms and branches sprawling up across the top two tiers of the wedding cake. The bottom green tier creates a bold contrast for the blossoms against a clean white frosted and delicious background. Not to mention mimicking the bride dressed in white with her coordinating spring pastel bouquet.

The Table

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this table setting. The details are on point and the table alone makes a statement, bringing with it the bold deep brown rustic, earthy table and the pastels encircled with greenery.  Each place setting carries the spring theme throughout with simple, yet bold, Bride and Groom place holders, and the romance of candlelight.

Bringing Spring Indoors

I love a good floral design and I love it even more when it comes on paper. The spring floral design included on all of the wedding stationery brings the ideal way  to continue the pastel colors and spring feeling. From the invitation, to the Save the Date cards, map, and RSVP card, it’s in all of the details keeping the theme going and making it consistent and romantic.

Sea Isle City | Paige + Derek | Destination Wedding

You all know that I LOVE a good destination wedding and it’s always a bonus when the beach is involved (Hello Sea Isle City, New Jersey!!). Adding Derek and Paige to the mix of sunset and sand was a recipe for perfection. Not to mention one of the highlights being, capturing the wedding party dance the night away in Sea Isle City baseball caps. Soooo much fun! I hope you enjoy catching a glimpse in to this bride and groom’s day as much as I did.

 Sea Isle City

Planning a wedding can be stressful and exhausting but then your long awaited day comes and everything just makes sense.  All that time before hand, working on pulling of the perfect celebration that matches both your love and commitment to each other, as well as your style, can be a daunting task.  Paige and Derek found it ALL when they found The Yacht Club in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. It was a breathtaking venue that had everything necessary to celebrate their love while embracing their personalities.  Just wait until you see Derek and his groomsmen with their Sea Isle baseball caps.

What They Want To Remember Most

When I talked to Paige and Derek about their day, it was clear they love to have FUN and cherish their time together doing just that. Derek said that the thing he wants to remember most about the day is, “Doing an entrance dance with Paige.”  See, I told you they like to have fun. How cute are they?!  When I asked Paige the same, she had a harder time narrowing it down with so many moments being a favorite from the day but she says, “Finally being able to take a deep breath and realize that I said ‘I do’ to my best friend and love of my life in front of the most important people in my life.”  Both agreed that the thing they didn’t ever want to forget form their wedding day is the happiness and love that was felt for and from family and friends.

The Honeymoon

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with vacationing in the carribean, or in Paige and Derek’s case, honeymooning. Sandals Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica was just the place to unwind from all the distractions and PERFECT for the two of them to focus on enjoying one on one time. Sounds like a dream!

The Gifts

A surprise candlelight dinner on the honeymoon was not only a unique gift to have received but also very well thought out. The newlywed pair loved all of their gifts, of course, and were grateful for everyone’s generosity but this one definitely stuck out. They definitely enjoyed this gift.

Laguna Beach Wedding | Hotel Seven4One | Leyna + Collin

Beach at sunset with bride and groom | Brooke Bakken | California Wedding Photographer

Laguna Beach Wedding

I am so excited to show off this GORGEOUS Laguna beach wedding at the coolest venue! Seven4One is incredibly unique and perfect for the bride who wants her closest friends with her on her big day, a beach view, and the most incredible food of all time! When Leyna reached out to me to talk about shooting her wedding here at Seven4One I was beyond excited! Leyna has always had amazing taste and has always been incredibly classy. We talked all about her vision for her day, and I absolutely LOVE how she made it all about her and Collin and what would fit them as a couple. They wanted their best friends, their family and a PARTY! And that is exactly what they got! Between the 80’s cover band (which was just about the coolest thing I have ever seen), the cocktail style dining, and the access to the gorgeous beat, this wedding was one for the books!

First Look

With this wedding taking place after the time change, Leyna decided to do a first look, as to not feel rushed when it came time for portraits and I was SO happy she did! Not only did they get to have a little time to themselves before their guests started arriving (although they were on display for all of PCH to see which was quite entertaining), it was the most perfect timing for romantic portraits of them as a married couple on the beach and the sunset did NOT disappoint! Laguna beach is ALWAYS gorgeous but I think Mother Nature was putting on a show that night!

Getting the PARTY Started

After portraits, the two were able to join cocktail hour with their guests and truly get to mingle with the ones they loved. I love how intimate the space is at Seven4One. It’s such an incredible Laguna Beach Wedding venue. Everyone was loving the food and open bar! They made their way on to the dance floor and the rest is history! Flashback Heart Attack kept the dance floor full the whole night and it was a BLAST! I usually tend to want to put my camera down when the DJ’s do their thing, but these guys had me dancing while shooting because I just couldn’t help myself! The day truly was perfect from start to finish and I am SO lucky to have incredible friends, brides and couples just like these two!

EBell Club Wedding | Jen + Josh | Long Beach California Photography

Husband and wife pose for photo
I have been waiting and waiting and it’s finally time to share this GORGEOUS Ebell Club wedding with some of my favorite people, Jen + Josh! This whole wedding was 100% perfection and every detail was planned and executed beautifully. So, let’s get to it!

Husband and wife whisperingEBell Club Wedding

There could not have been a more perfect venue for Jen and Josh than the beautiful Ebell Club. Seeing the two of them there made it that much more beautiful.  When asked what their favorite part of the wedding day was Jen said it was exchanging vows and officially becoming husband and wife. You can tell from the way she was looking at that new husband of hers that she meant it!  She also said, “and dancing with my new husband.”  The Ebell Club offered the perfect place to let loose as  there was a gorgeous open dance floor  with plenty of room for everyone to show off.  Josh said he loved watching Jen enter the ceremony and shared her sentiment on exchanging vows. He said, “it was a truly surreal moment.” It doesn’t get more romantic than that.

What bride doesn’t feel beautiful on her wedding day? But adding a little flare to the pre-wedding dressing room routine included Jen in her embellished bride robe and floral robes for all of her bridesmaids. I love the personalized hanger made for Jen’s wedding dress. It’s all about the details and Jen’s dress didn’t disappoint with it’s neckline and all of it’s intricacy. She found her dresss at Pebbles Bridal. Designer: Kenneth Winston.

Yes, it’s easy to say this day is all about the bride and dress but not when the groom shows up looking this dapper, matching his brides attention to detail perfectly in his 3 piece suit. Josh found his suit at Friar Tux and didn’t miss piecing everything together with precision down to the polka dot socks, pocket square, watch, and shoes.

What They Want to Remember Most

Jen and Josh said they both want to remember that feeling of being on cloud nine all day. That moment when everything comes together and you are right where you want to be without another care in the world. The two of you together as husband and wife, finally. All the planning coming together in your perfect moment. They also loved being surrounded by so much love and sharing their love with such a wonderful group of people. It was very clear how loved they are by there many friends and family. There was plenty of dancing and smiles shared by all in attendance.

The Honeymoon

For their honeymoon, Josh and Jen traveled to Bali, Indonesia. On the island of Bali they stayed in Ubud, Seminyak, and Jimbaran.  If that doesn’t sound romantic and tropical enough already, they stayed in villas that backed right up to the rain forest and rice paddies. The adventure didn’t stop there. They had MONKEYS in their backyard!! They shared that some of their favorite days were spent exploring the streets of the neighborhoods surrounding their villa and then coming back to relax in the pool and just soak in the view with each other.

The Wedding Gifts

Although every gift they received was very appreciated and LOVED there was one that specifically stood out to them for how unique it was, Tesla stock.  Wow! Talk about taking a gift registry to the next level of investment banking. I guess nothing shows that someone puts stock into the success of your marriage more than actual stock.

Bride and Groom with parents Toast takes place with focus on champagne glassesI know I already talked about this venue, the Ebell Club, but I can’t get enough of the detail that demands presence in every single room.  The lighting, the decor, the dance floor, and the overall ambiance it created. It was absolutely perfect for Jen and Josh’s wedding day…and the food. The food was catered by Tres LA Catering and did a FABULOUS job!

Newport Beach Temple Wedding | Maryn + Jimmy | Orange County

Newport Beach Temple wedding by Orange County photographer Brooke Bakken

Some times, the universe smiles on you and sends you the perfect people at the most perfect time! Maryn and Jimmy were those people for me over Christmas break! I was already planning on being in CA to shoot Brooke + Bryce’s wedding, so when Maryn contacted me about shooting her Newport Beach Temple wedding just a few days after, the stars aligned and the timing was perfect. What I didn’t plan on, was just how much I would LOVE both of them! They are without a doubt the most welcoming, friendly and loving couple and their families are exactly the same. Newport Beach Temple wedding by Orange County photographer Brooke Bakken

Newport Beach Temple

I showed up to the Newport Beach Temple and when Susie (Maryn’s beautiful mother) walked out of the temple, I got a HUGE hug and she goes, “oh my gosh we are just so excited you are here for us today!”. Talk about feeling loved before your job even starts!Bride hugs her dad at a Newport Beach Temple wedding by Orange County photographer Brooke Bakken

The whole day was absolutely perfect, and if you knew the weather in CA leading up to this big day, you would know that we were on pins and needles HOPING the rain would hold off and allow them to at least have their dream outdoor reception. Lucky for us, the sun was shining, and not only was the weather gorgeous, but they were able to have a little time to themselves at the beach in between the temple and the reception too! New bride hugs | Newport Beach | Orange County | Brooke Bakken Wedding Photgrapher As important as it was to have their images at the Newport Beach Temple where they “sealed the deal”, I know Maryn was most looking forward to having her pictures with Jimmy at the beach. The size of their smiles, the laughter and the love shared between the two of them was evidence that they were on cloud 9 and I was more than excited that we were able to be there with them to celebrate!Taking family photos outside Newport Beach Temple | Orange County | Brooke Bakken Wedding Photgrapher

My second shooter and I (which lucky for me was my beautiful and talented mom!) arrived at their reception and our jaws dropped! The twinkle lights, the killer backdrop that they made, the taco truck, the smore pit, was ALL incredible! I couldn’t choose a favorite! Maybe I am bias because I had a taco truck at my own wedding, but DANG that food was delicious!!

Between the carne asada and the guacamole I was in heaven! THEN, we go inside and see all the Carmel apples and it was palette overload! I usually try to eat before receptions, so that I can make sure to focus on photographing people mingling and the bride and groom greeting their guests, but since there was two of us to divide and conquer, I was able to sneak in some food while I worked and I couldn’t be more OK with my decision! 🙂Newly weds embrace | Newport Beach | Orange County | Brooke Bakken Wedding Photgrapher As the reception heated up, I KNEW they would have such a fun group of friends and guests, and I was NOT disappointed! Their DJ was on point, their first dance was perfection (their smiles and the way Jimmy twirled her made my heart melt!) and then Jimmy busted out a Solo in the middle of the dance party and while his vocal skills are debatable…he made up for it in enthusiasm! I literally have never laughed harder in my entire wedding career! I am pretty sure it was the highlight of the night! I practically lost my voice from laughing and cheering him on! Jimmy, you are the man!!Family photo outside of Newport Beach Temple | Orange County | Brooke Bakken Wedding Photgrapher I cannot say enough about these two! I love them and from the moment we met, I knew they would be the people that I would forever be friends with and I cannot wait to see what they accomplish as a team!
