debbie + andrew: wedding editorial | bishop, california.
crowley love. there’s something special and sweet about it. it’s that indescribable sense of community and support found in and through those that grew up or live in this small mountain town. it’s so real that it’s nearly palpable and it is such that marks crowley lake as a hometown worth coming home to. crowley love goes beyond hilton creek. it’s portable because it’s not merely about the aspens, or the lake days, or skating ojai. it’s about a community of people that cares for it’s own (and those who come and go) and cherishes moments of togetherness. and of course opportunities to celebrate.
yesterday was just that. a celebration. and a day filled to the brim with crowley love. it was tom jackson’s homemade lasunaga. it was tight squeezes from longtime friends. heartfelt toasts to a long and happy marriage. it was a tear-filled exchange of vows. it was a father marrying his son. a dad walking his baby girl down the aisle of a one-hundred year old church. debbie + andrew’s wedding was the personification of crowley love and that my friends was a beautiful thing and a day worth remembering. so i hope this helps…and i hope you get a sense of that precious crowley love.

to start the day off, i met up with the ladies at american beauty salon
as they were being pampered and primped for the big day. part of the fun was getting to hang out with some childhood friends who are strewn about the country but all came back to town to stand by debbie’s side.

the beautiful bride.
debbie and andrew opted for a first look, and it was a beautiful and intimate moment and it gave us a bit more time to get some epic photos in crowley before the ceremony.
we stumbled upon an awesome aerostream trailer. vintage. and groovy. love.
the ladies. i seriously had a blast spending the day with this crew. they are fantastic.
the guys were all up for anything. so since we had a few extra minutes before we headed south, we went up to the hills opposite crowley for some awesome album cover inspired shots.
i love this moment.
i just about died when i saw this church. it was gorgeous and that light pouring in through the stained glass? wow! not to mention debbie’s chic lo boheme
debbie and andrew collected vintage bottles and glassware to adorn the tables. yes please.
i love me some sparklers. they make for some awesome photos.
