” There are two great days in a persons life – The day we are born and the day we discover why “
~ William Barclay ~
What an incredible train of thought. Such a vague logic but precisely hits the mark in all of us. There is no arguing that we get to experience great times in our lives but what sets weddings apart from the rest, feelings wise, is the cumulative amount of emotion that is in the air. Where as other great times in life is usually in a more intimate setting ( that day you find out your having a child, the promotion you’ve been busting ass for that will change your life for example ) weddings are entirely different. Every person there is hand selected and each person is there to celebrate your love. The compounded effect of this makes weddings one the greatest emotional trips in ones life, because everyone you care about is there to share, celebrate and display how much they love you as well. Gayle and Justin’s GOLD MOUNTAIN MANOR WEDDING was nothing short of this.
GOLD MOUNTAIN MANOR is a historic log mansion located in BIG BEAR CA. It’s pretty incredible if I may say. The inside has a beautiful bridal and groom suite and the outdoor area has a huge garden/lawn for receptions. There is definitely no lack of areas for AMAZING images there.
Gayle and Justin’s intimate GOLD MOUNTAIN MANOR WEDDING was fantastic! We had guests flying in from the Philippines and making the long trek from LA up to Big Bear Mountain. The weather was beautiful as well!
We started the day with the finishing touches for prep. The guys were chilling outside on the porch relaxing and getting the game faces on haha. The girls were inside rocking the champagne and having fun. For creatives we headed down to Arrowhead Lake and kicked butt! Gayle and Justin rocked these! After we wrapped that session up we headed back to GOLD MOUNTAIN MANOR for the courtyard reception and the rest is history. Drinking, dancing, running around with Instamax cameras, it really was super fun and to have everything go down in this setting was the cherry on top.
