She was calm, yet excited. Ready in her custom embroidered jumpsuit, Ashley sat on a pillow on a chair as her makeup was applied. Her feet didn’t even touch the ground. Her future husband was Bobby, who she had met nine years ago during senior year in high school. After the two connected during homecoming leaving their dates and wandering off to spend the rest of the night together, it was inevitable the two would spend the rest of their lives together.
Ashley and Bobby are from Southern California so it seemed right to have the wedding back home, close to family, in Orange/Anaheim, which coincidentally also happens to be close to you know, the happiest place on Earth.
I was so excited to travel to So Cal not only to get out of the Phoenix heat, but to see them again. After having so much fun capturing their engagement session, I couldn’t wait for their big day. I also wanted to take Ashley’s mom home, she made me laugh so much! Congratulations Ashley and Bobby!

Diana Elizabeth loves the CA-60E and I-5 South. She never missed her home state of California more than while on this trip. Of course, nothing tops PCH.
