Here it is! Part two of Paul and Molly’s Japanese Friendship Garden wedding! We left off last time with some of their to-die-for portraits — some of my very favorite to date! In this post we will be sharing more from their ceremony and reception festivities! Remember we explained the Korean wedding ceremony?!

Wait until you see it!

During the reception, Paul and Molly took part in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony called Pyebaek. During this ceremony, the parents seated across from the newlyweds. The newlyweds bow and offer the cup to the father and the groom offers the cup to the mother. The parents then share some wisdom on marriage from their experience. At the end, the parents threw the Korean dates at the couple, who has to try catching them with Molly’s wedding skirt. The number of dates that Paul and Molly caught symbolize the number of children they will have! It was so fun to watch! EEEK! So much fun!!! So excited to share these with you all!

This dreamy Livermore engagement session is one for the books! Johnny and Polly are such a sweet couple! The entire session they were holding hands and were naturals in front of my camera 🙂 We explored around a gorgeous Livermore winery and had so much fun finding such pretty spaces! The colors all went so well together and that dress! I mean, just look at it! And just wait until you see Polly’s second outfit! It is so fun and flirty and is one of my favorite things ever 🙂

It is such a treat to share this sweet San Francisco engagement session with David and Kaitlyn. We met out at Fort Point, right at the Golden Gate Bridge. This is a special post because Kaitlyn is one of my dear friend’s daughters! Like most days in San Francisco, it was foggy and Karl the Fog was not going to let any of that glorious, glowy sunshine in. BUT — the fog lifted and the beautiful sun came shining through! These two are some of the most fun, sweet, and loving couple I have ever met! Each time we posed or I had them walk, they were so cute with each other. Holding hands, nuzzling, kissing, and being sweet on one another. Love, love, LOVED our time together!!!

I MEAN LOOK AT THEM!

Enjoy a few of my very favorite moments from our time together in San Francisco!!!!

OH FRIENDS! Paul & Molly’s San Diego wedding is one for the books!!! The entire day was so full of happiness, excitement, and GORGEOUSNESS!!! I mean, seriously, look at these two…..they are perfect! The location of their wedding day is something very special to Paul & Molly. It is the exact place they had their first date! How sweet is that?! The entire space was the perfect canvas for their celebration and fit the romance of it all. From the unique ceremony location having dreamy maple trees shading guests, the amazing plants that accented the landscape, and the intricate decorations throughout the garden — I could not imagine a more fitting location!

A N   A B S O L U T E   D R E A M ! ! !

Both of Paul’s mother and father officiated the ceremony. It was something so special to witness and I know it was even more special for Paul & Molly. That is something that they will cherish for the rest of their lives! All of the guests were buzzing with happy thoughts and love for these two. Something equally as fun was the wedding party! This group of friends and family were SO MUCH FUN! We had a great time together and they set the bar for future wedding parties everywhere 🙂

Aaron and Kelsey’s Riverside engagement session is one for the books! We met over at Aaron’s house and then drove over the hill to these GORGEOUS orange groves. Such a unique location! These two have spent some time out here and is a special and beautiful place to them! I just LOVE these two! We had so much fun adventuring through the groves. The orange groves are so incredibly beautiful! All of the rich greens with the pops of orange…..GORGEOUS!! We had a little trouble finding groves with oranges on the trees, but just at the last spot we checked out, behold! ORANGES!!!!!! So happy we found these! I think that we can all agree that the search was worth it 🙂

A N D   T H E N . . .

We drove up the way a little bit and found n empty lot that looked like a desert! We were there just in time for some dreamy sunlit portraits. Even though I thought I got bit by a rattlesnake (I totally didn’t…I am just really blonde ;)) we had the BEST time together. Can’t wait to share this engagement session with you all! And soon I will share their wedding photos! Stay tuned!!
