Max & Kayla's Private Home Wedding

We've had the pleasure of getting to know Max, Kayla and their beautiful daughters, Ella and Olivia over the past year. It all started at a local coffee shop in Ventura where we heard about their long-time relationship, Max's career as a fireman, and Kayla's career working as a hair stylist at one of the hippest salon's in Ventura. We quickly new this was an extremely hard-working, down-to-earth, gracious, and loyal pair. We were hooked!! 

Their wedding was a good ol' fashion celebration full of heart. It was tropicana meets rustic with romantic touches in every corner. Carolyn, of Carolyn Jane Events, coordinated the day and made sure every detail was in place. Orange Blossom Florals put together the flawless floral arrangements and accents. The ladies of Ten Dash One (Kayla's Salon!) beautified the bridesmaids, and Kayla looked absolutely STUNNING in her Blush by Hayley Paige gown.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spring day for this lovely couple to say their "I-do's." It was 75 and sunny in Ojai where they transformed a family property into the most magical wedding space. Kayla and Max worked for months clearing the land, building a bar, and creating all the little details to make their celebration just right. It was so fun seeing everything come to life!

Some of our favorite moments from their day included seeing Kayla and Max interact with their darling little ones. I hope Ella and Olivia look back at these photos and see not only how loved they are, but how much fun they had at their parents wedding! Kayla and Max are the laid-back, cool parents, and it made for such a lovely experience having their daughters running around.

Before kicking off the evening with drinks and dancing, we got some of the most beautiful golden light we've seen in a long time. This made it even more special having a few minutes with just the Bride and Groom before the sun set set over the mountains; always our favorite part of a wedding day! It was obvious how committed and in-love these two are, making our time together smooth and effortless.

To cap of such a beautiful celebration, we were also met with past clients, old friends, and a few pups running around the property. Basically, it felt like home to us and we are so stoked we got to capture this very special day.

Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Jesu!!
