{ anh + todd | nixon library wedding }

Some of my favorite things about this wedding, in no particular order: superhappy people, a charming venue, omg-pinch-me-this-light-is-amazing light, witty groomsman, sweet bridesmaids, an ethereal dress, and the smiles, the smiles!! Anh & Todd were filled with joy that day, and this was reflected perfectly back to them in the faces of every single one of their family and friends :)

As always, it does wonders to have a coordinator like Uyen on hand to pull everything together! And thanks to William Kim for second shooting!

I love intimate, cozy, charming weddings like these. It helps to have a lovely little venue {the French Estate steals my heart every time!} but so much of it is in the subtle details – a set of “LOVE” keys gifted to Elisa by her sister, tea canisters as vases, scattered literary favorites, a display of childhood photos – everything homey, thoughful, and meaningful to Elisa and Andrew. Some sweet additions – in lieu of a cake they had a churro bar (with ice cream!), and they lovingly handcrafted heart-shaped rice krispy treats one by one, as a favor for each of their guests.

And the joy! Can you feel the joy? It was all around :)

A special thank you to William Kim for shooting with me, and Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings for being beyond awesome as always and making our jobs so so easy. Seriously that girl has the magic touch, every wedding she coordinates flows beautifully without a hitch!

You may remember Pat & Eugene from their super sweet engagement session last year? I’m so excited to now share their beautiful wedding with you as well! It took place on a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Nixon Library last month and was full of the most elegant details and tons of special moments – including a surprise song performed by Eugene {with the help of his sure-footed groomsmen} for Pat :)

A big thank you to this amazing couple for allowing me to tag along and capture these moments – as well as to my dear friend Lydia for introducing me to them! And also for sharing these images on her blog, Ever Ours! :) Be sure to visit her blog for more, including a video(!) of Eugene’s performance of the year (his voice is seriously amazing/Michael Buble ain’t got nothing on him)!

I believe my jaw hit the floor when I walked into this room. I find I’m often a fan of outdoor receptions compared to ballrooms, but this is seriously one of the prettiest ballrooms I’ve ever laid eyes upon. So elegant & classy, and even more amazing when adorned with peonies…

And the song!
