So Shani & Seth. They could be models no? They’re both ridiculously good looking and know just how to work it for the camera. But I’m going to let you in on a secret. They’re just as beautiful on the inside as the out. I KNOW RIGHT?? Seriously these two are some of the warmest, funniest, most laidback people I’ve met and I loved working with them every single step up to their wedding, from the second Shani walked into my studio, through their sweet emails, to their engagement session, and of course this perfect wedding day.

And oh how I love shooting at Cafe Pinot! No matter how many times I’m there I always marvel at how it’s such the perfectly tucked away garden in the midst of skyscraper-laden downtown. Hope you enjoy this peek into their day!

Silvia and Brian were married at the Hyatt Huntington Beach this summer and it was a most elegant & lovely affair. There were tons of well thought out details, but I was especially enamored by her beautiful lily-of-the-valley bouquet – it was one of the most delicate & pretty bouquets I’ve ever seen! I was also so excited to work once again with my friend Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings, since any day touched by her coordination magic is sure to be both relaxed and fun!

This was one of my last weddings of the summer, but stay tuned for lots of pretty autumn weddings to come next!

Lina and Jeff were married on a sunny summer day in downtown, and had a wedding filled with nods to their culture and personalities. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Nishi Hongwanji Temple {where Lina's parents had been married as well!} and the reception followed just a few blocks away at the stunning Lot 613. As always, Sassy Girl Weddings pulled everything together perfectly, and transformed the loft space into the prettiest urban oasis – how amazing are those hanging arrangements??

One of my most favorite moments was the father-daughter dance – Lina told me her dad’s favorite type of dance is bon odori, a fun group dance that takes place at the Japanese obon festivals. So that’s what they did for their dance! It was my first time seeing this done at a wedding and I loved how their guests joined in, how it was something that was so special & meaningful for Lina and her father, and how his smile showed just how happy he was :) It was a wonderful reminder that your wedding is about you, you can choose what resonates with you most, make your own traditions, and infuse every corner of it with what you hold most dear to your heart :)
