Alex + Cata :: Married

There is always something about backyard weddings, especially those that are completely planned, decorated, and put together by the couple and their family (Alex and his mom actually made basically everything you see in these photos). Alex and Cata's wedding was nothing short of special. From the moment guests walked onto the property they could feel the love between these two. Cata and Alex actually have a unique story- they met while Alex was teaching English in Chile a few years ago and quickly fell madly in love. Their ceremony was held both in Spanish and in English and it was incredible to see how two cultures could blend together so seamlessly.

Congrats Alex and Cata!



Wendy & Berto :: Married

Wendy and I used to work together and in between her listening to all my life drama I would always joke around with her asking her when she was going to get engaged/married, and well, guys, IT HAPPENED! I am so happy I was there to witness this beautiful elopement of such a beautiful couple. Wendy, you and Berto compliment each other so well and I am beyond happy for the both of you! They are also expecting a little bundle of joy next year! Congrats!

Tessa & Fletcher :: Married

A summer wedding in California, what does that make you think about, a nice, hot, beautiful day, right? Well we had a nice, beautiful, wet day! Tessa and Fletcher were such troopers when it began to rain, storm, in the morning of their big day. This was literally the first day it REALLY rained in CA all year, and it rained all day, only letting up briefly for the ceremony and then finally right before the first dance and dinner. I do have to say though, I am so lucky to work with such amazing people. These two had smiles on their faces, and a positive attitude all day. Their friends and family did not complain about the rain, and at the end of the day everything happens for a reason. It is an old Russian superstition that when it rains on a special occasion, a big day, that it is good luck, bringing purity into the day. Tessa and Fletcher, thank you for allowing me to be apart of your big day- congrats!
