Let me tell you something about the kinds of couples I work with. They’re the kind that pick lovely venues that so perfectly fit their personalities, like a little historic library by the sea. They’re the kind that when it’s chilly and ridiculously windy out, choose to still walk down to the sand to do more portraits, laughing and smiling every step of the way. They’re the kind that at the end of the night, when all the guests are packed on the dance floor, take a moment to dance quietly in each other arms, looking at one another like it’s the first time they’ve ever met eyes, and are the only ones in the room. They’re like Jamie and Greg, and to work with couples like them is seriously a blessing.

Special thanks to Tealight Weddings for coordinating the day perfectly. Hope you enjoy this peek into this intimate seaside wedding!

A bride as shown in magazines and movies is elegant, sophisticated, graceful. But a bride in real life is so much more – she’s excited, she’s effervescent, she’s unique, she’s real – a down-to-earth girl who who just happens that day to be adorned in the most stunning white dress. Susan served as a beautiful reminder of this – throughout her wedding day at the elegant beachside Portofino Hotel, she laughed, she cried, she cracked jokes, she mastered a silly pose in a shot or two, and showed everyone present why a real bride is more beautiful than anything you’d find on the cover of a magazine.

Their wedding was simple and fresh. Gerber daisies, which have always been some of my favorite flowers, graced the room and popped against the cool ocean colors. Susan and David have a beautiful connection and it was great to see the bond between their families as well, as they danced together and laughed together and celebrated the union of two individuals and two households.

A big thank you to the amazingly talented Tracy Kumono for inviting me to come along!

Loved this moment of prayer:

There were bouts of dancing throughout the entire reception!

The moving father-daughter dance:

Near the end of the reception we snuck out for just a few portraits:
