After meeting Taylor at the iconic Heathman restaurant (she trained me to be a hostess there while I started this amazing biz back in 2007!) and photographing her and David’s iconic Cannon Beach engagement session; I knew their wedding would be truly momentous. We started with some organic and chill getting ready photos with the couple before the best man and maid of honor revealed the beautiful Taylor via their vintage pocket doors. Her gorgeous hair and makeup by the talented Kirstie Wight. Their wedding was a collaboration of friends and family, from their friend Sarah who created the very impressive florals to Annie who took on the important day-of coordinator role! Lan Su Chinese Garden Weddings might be some of my absolute faves, with its impressive architecture, lush gardens, bridges and hidden nooks. The emotional ceremony took place after sunset so it was quite dark, but I love the mood it created with the photos! Vibrant Table baked up some very delicious food while friends and family gathered for the Samoan Siva dance. This dance has been a part of David’s family for generations and was very fun to photograph. So incredible to watch and see Grandma literally pass this graceful dance from generation to generation. Needless to say their wedding was full of true joy and exuberant love and I’m so honored to have been the one to document it!
