{ kat + ryan | topanga canyon wedding }

There are the big grand moments in a wedding – the bride walking down the aisle, the first kiss, the first dance – but I’ve found that so many of the smaller moments in between can touch your heart as well. A quiet moment between the couple in the middle of a busy dance floor, that second right after the ceremony when they are alone & embracing & brimming with joy – in this wedding there was another unique moment that I loved. Kat’s mother wasn’t physically in attendance at the wedding, but was able to observe it & be a part of it via Skype on an iPad (OH TECHMOLOGY), and I love the moment towards the end of this post, where Kat is conversing with her during the reception. It made me so happy to see that her mom could be a part of this day with them from way across the ocean…

On another note, you may need to take a swoon break mid-post as Kat’s dress is seriously to die for. I immediately fell in love with the flowy design & ethereal layers. Couple this with a room full of light (my favorite!) and I felt compelled to snap a billion photos just during the getting-ready portion of the day :)

    I love:
    • the bodice of her beautiful dress
    • those beautiful pops of red roses
    • how the bride’s bangs are so amazing they could give Zooey Deschanel a run in the contest of “Best Bangs Ever”

    Great job A!!!!

    I think you captured the bride so well! Her personality really seems to shine through, and love the lighting as always.

    I could float away on the light airiness of these images. The dress was made for this bride…both so ethereal. That image of her chatting with her mom via ipad is a beautiful moment. You should submit it to moment junkie.
