This wedding was a dream to shoot, for a number of reasons. Not only did Aaron and Lynsie (who are fantastic people, by the way) get married in the beautiful Carmel Valley, I was finally able to incorporate the Oakland A’s (the couple’s, and my, favorite baseball team) into a wedding video. The McNallys were married at the Carmel Valley Ranch on June 21 in front of an intimate group of their family and friends. The couple met while working at Starbucks, which is fitting because their wedding was cozier than a vanilla latte and sweeter than a mocha frappuccino.
