Samantha and Darren got married at the BEAUTIFUL Dalidet Adobe in San Luis Obispo, Ca. The weather was perfect, the flowers were blooming, and everyone was super happy :) This was our first wedding of the season, and the first back after the birth of our daughter. I was sooo ready to photograph a wedding, and Samantha and Darren were the perfect "welcome back" couple. There were so many great photos, so this is a long post. Jesse's film shots from the day will be in Part 2 along with their advice and story for planning their wedding.
