My first wedding of 2015 and my was it a good one! Jennifer and Chun were married high atop a hill at the Summit House, which proved to be the perfect cozy setting for this winter wedding! Though it sprinkled a bit throughout the day, Jennifer and Chun didn’t let the weather dampen their spirits in the least, and we were still able to get plenty of portraits outside around the pretty venue.

Such the perfect way to kick off the year and so excited for all my 2015 weddings!

{ Angela + John | San Juan Capistrano Wedding }

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

When I first met with Angela & John {over mile-high pastrami sandwiches at Jerry’s Famous Deli, my kind of couple!}, they shared about their wedding, but also extensively about their families. I got such a strong sense of how important their families were to them and what a vital role they would be playing in the wedding.

But what I discovered on their wedding day was even more wonderful – that they were close with their families yes, but also that the two families seemed to be so close to each other. I spotted their mothers laughing together and walking arm in arm, I saw the sweet friendship between Angela’s brother and John’s son, observed the fun interaction between everyone on the dance floor. A wedding day, just as it joins people, most definitely joins families, but I seriously felt as if everyone there was already one big happy wonderful family – tears and hugs and laughs were shared freely among everyone and it was amazing to witness.

I know Angela poured her heart and soul into planning this wedding and it unfolded perfectly. It definitely couldn’t hurt that it all started off with the loveliest pair of shoes…

I think my heart skipped 2 beats when I saw her bouquet, pale pink peonies are one of my favorites…

For their first dance, John surprised Angela with a live song performed by their friends. Her reaction was perfect!

I love how John’s son came over and sat on Angela’s lap during the slideshow. So sweet:
