The Battaglia Wedding at Quail Haven Farm in Vista

I have to admit, this blog post has been a month in the making. It's hard to write about someone whom you love so much. Dana is a wonderful woman, who I have been lucky enough to call my friend and I think it's taken me so long to do this post because it's impossible to sum up how magical and wonderful her wedding day was. 

Dana and Erik met on a date a few years ago, and were set up by friends. A chance meeting could not have been more fortuitous. These two are a perfect pair, and I now love Erik as his own wonderful individual person. When you meet your friends "person" it can be a scary thing. You want nothing but the best for them. But with Erik, I had nothing to worry about. He's kind and generous, and most of all, deeply in love with Dana.

I won't go on and on, but this shoot will definitely go down as one of my all time favorite weddings! From the sweet touches of postcards and a gold mailbox, to the stunning gold details (plates, cutlery, etc), this day was a delight. With just around a hundred people at the wedding, it still felt like a small intimate gathering. Quail Haven Farm is stunning, and it was such a treat to be able to be at the farm with the beautiful horses. 

So, please enjoy and feel free to share all the magic and beauty of Dana and Eriks day! 

Much love,


A special shout out and thank you to all the vendors who worked to make this day the beauty that it was!
