Ryan & Katie’s beautiful Courtyard wedding!

Today I have another wedding for you! (woohoo! I’m actually blogging again!)

I shot this beautiful wedding this past fall on September 20th. Surrounded by their close friends and family Katie and Ryan said their “i dos” filled with their own vows of love and promise. They both love to travel and are constantly seeking their next adventure– they’ve travelled so much! At Barrister they held the reception in the courtyard and it gave the wedding a gorgeous Paris feel, (which was their theme, as they got engaged on the Eiffel Tower!) with the brick alley-way walls, the lights and the decor – it was so gorgeous! To top it off, they went to Thailand for their honeymoon! Pretty awesome!

Their reception, *sigh* like straight out of a romance novel.

Thank you for the lovely family photos! We love them! You are quite a talented photographer and I love seeing all the pictures on your blog.

These family photos are beautiful and that golden light is gorgeous. Your work is quite lovely. My favorite photo is the one of the littlest guy looking out from the the blanket while mommy and daddy are kissing.

Allen & Megumi’s backyard wedding!

On a beautiful sunny August day we gathered to celebrate the marriage of Allen and Megumi!

Surrounded by close family and friends, they had an intimate ceremony in Megumi’s family’s backyard. It was so sweet, beautiful and I’m so glad I had the privilege of being a part of their special day! Enjoy!

Allen and Megumi, being Taiwanese and Japanese respectively, decided to have Japanese cuisine for lunch with family and friends and Taiwanese food for their larger reception gathering later that afternoon. I loved this idea! Both were SO yummy!!

Allen’s sister drew this picture for them!! Amazing!

After the ceremony and lunch, Allen and Megumi had a time of fellowship, singing, and sharing their love story with a larger group of friends and family. It was so sweet and encouraging; seeing their mutual love for the Lord and laying their marriage foundation on Him was such a beautiful testimony.

Boba – a beverage that should be served at every wedding. I won’t tell you how many I had… 🙂

After all was said and done, we snuck away to take their bride and groom photos during the beautiful golden hour. I’m always so thankful when couples are willing to plan their day around the best portrait hour – it makes my heart sing!
