Allison & Arshad | Engagement

Nothing makes me happier than spending my free time in the outdoors seeking adventure, so when my couples share that same passion, it makes for some really good times (and also beautiful photos). Allison and Arshad traveled to the beautiful Eastern Sierras for their engagement photos and they surely did not disappoint. Shot by the talented Daniel Han at Snapmotive, these photos are what dreams are made of, and I am so excited to share them with you today!

These two lovebirds tie the knot in a few months at the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch, so we definitely have a lot to look forward to!

christine and brian's story is one that is sweet, romantic, and inspiring, and i am excited to share it with you all today. the two knew almost instantly after they met that they were going to be together forever. both were in their early 20's when they began dating and knowing that they would someday get married, they both started saving up early on so they could one day have their dream wedding.  their hard work and patience definitely paid off because the two were able to have a beautiful and elegant wedding at the iconic and classic millennium biltmore hotel located in the heart of downtown los angeles. the two tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the st. basil catholic church, just minutes from the hotel before their family and friends headed over to the hotel for a beautiful reception.

Laura & Alex | Montage, Laguna Beach

There is nothing more Californian than having a romantic beach side wedding like Laura and Alex did this past october. I am so honored to have been a part of this beautiful wedding and excited to share these beautiful images from Laura and Alex's wedding held at the pristine Montage Laguna Beach. The adorable couple met in 2010 and were friends for over a year before they started dating. Their love of sports brought them together and in their spare time these self-proclaimed nerds enjoy playing strategy board games. with one another.

Laura was inspired by the beauty of the beach and brightness of California sun and weather so she wanted to incorporate colors of mint and bright coral to stand out against the classic white that you find with most weddings. For her nuptials, Laura chose a Casablanca sleeveless trumpet-style wedding dress accented with lace and sequins and beautiful mint bridesmaids dresses. Other beautiful details from her wedding included mint-colored Jenga pieces for guests to write their well-wishes, mason jars filled with mint candy, and a dessert table filled with her favorite sweets. 

When asked what her favorite part of the wedding was, she stated that it was "definitely just being able to marry my best friend and love of my life. It was just the icing on the cake that everyone we love and care about was there to be a part of the celebration!" Laura and Alex both currently reside in Seattle where she is studying for her PhD in molecular biology at the University of Washington and Alex works at Microsoft.
