NFL Football Theme Wedding from Silver Gecko Photography

Today is the day that most people get together to watch the big game. Yep, it is all about eating some delicious food, enjoying the new commercials, and cheering on their favorite football team.  (Or cheering on football in general, if there teams are not playing today). All in all, it is all about the parties, and having a good time with friends and family. That is exactly what this gorgeous couple did on their wedding day! Well, not exactly. (Minus the commercials. Smile). Their wedding consisted of good food, cheers from their guests, and their love for football all enjoyed by all who were at attendance. What I really love is the groom’s cake! Totally awesome! So before you head off to a party, or start the cooking, take a moment to view the fun-filled images from Silver Gecko Photography.

Oh and Happy Super Bowl Day!

It was an absolute honor to photograph Liz & Dave’s wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. I’ve known these two for about 10 years, before they even started dating. Dave is one of my fraternity brothers from Sigma Phi Epsilon and Liz, a Tri-Delt, was always a big supporter of our chapter. I also knew most of the bridal party as many of them were fraternity brothers and sorority sisters of Liz, including her Matron of Honor, Kristin, whose wedding I photographed last year.

It was great seeing so many familiar faces and it made photographing that much easier. I made sure we spent time photographing the bridal party and getting some really dynamic photos. I also wanted to make sure to capture a few “signature images” with only Liz & Dave, something I’m trying to do with every couple I photograph. Calamigos Ranch is an amazing property and we found this great tree that had a large branch that was perfect for wrapping around the new Mr. & Mrs. Hames. The results are outstanding!

A FootBall Love: An Engagement Session from Silver Gecko Photography

The Big Game is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with this super fun engagement session featuring an adorable couple who loves to show their spirit for football. We want to keep the team spirit going this week, and that is why we love this e-session so much. Of course it is even better when  Silver Gecko Photography  is there to capture the love that this couple shares with each other. It is kind of sweet to see a couple like this one, run on the football field, and share their obvious love for each other. So get your pom pom’s out and cheer for this cute couple!

This was a very fun session! I’ve known Liz & Dave for years and I’m more than honored to photograph for them. Dave is one of my fraternity brothers from Sigma Phi Epsilon at Calif. State Univ., Northridge and Liz has always been a big supporter of our chapter. They’re both very fun loving people and huge sports fans!

Our session was originally supposed to start at the football field at Westlake High school, where Dave’s father coaches one of the football teams, but we couldn’t find the gate that was supposed to open for us. This actually worked in our favor since it was ridiculously hot and extremely sunny when we first arrived at the field. We decide to start with what was to be our second location, the beach at Point Mugu State Park. When we got to the beach Dave was telling me how they love to come to this beach since it isn’t well known and and they can watch the waves crash into the rocks at the shoreline.

This was my first time at the any beach since my honeymoon in Hawaii, so it was a little bittersweet, but photographing Dave & Liz interacting and enjoying the environment was great, despite the wind that was blowing Liz’s hair everywhere.

When we got back to the field in Westlake the lighting was perfect, thanks in part to the solar eclipse that was occurring.  I photographed Liz and Dave just playing around on the field and ended with them under the score board, with the setting sun behind them.

A Gorgeous Football Themed Wedding From Expressionary Events

As much as I am obsessed with all things wedding, I am a HUGE NFL football fan!  With football season coming to an end with the big game of the year, (The Super Bowl), we wanted to take a look at what a wedding would look like when it combines a couple’s love for football and their love for each other. Oh my goodness, it looks pretty darn good! I love it! A football themed  wedding may seem very tacky, but when  it is done right and you have the very talented Carmen Fuentes from Expressionary Events planning it, then you have yourself a fabulous wedding. This is why I am so in love with this wedding. It has the perfect amount of football details added to a gorgeously decorated wedding day. This wedding ticks all the boxes of what it means to have a couple of die hard football fans getting married in the most lovely of ways.

From Carmen at Expressionary Events

Audra and Danny got married at the beautiful Hotel Maya in Long Beach, CA and when planning their wedding, they wanted to somehow incorporate their love of football into the details.  The bride was a huge Redskins fan and the groom was a diehard Patriots fan. Although they rooted for opposite teams, they decided to add subtle details into their wedding and combine their love of football together.  The card-box was beautifully decorated with mini football helmets of their favorite team.  Each of the table numbers had alternating football jerseys of their favorite players as well as the bride and groom with their respective team.  The bride loved the team so much, her primary wedding colors was red and white as seen in her florals,  bouquet, and bridesmaids dresses. The color scheme was perfect for the venue because the hotel is known for its bold and bright hues and the wedding color made the perfect statement.
