Part 2: The Big Day!

Hi there! Remember Whitney and Jake’s First Look? Well, we are proud to share some more with you! I just can’t say enough about how gracious and cool these guys are. Ever since our engagement session together, Betsy and I knew that we were going to have a blast at their wedding! It was their idea to have fun with their engagement session with us by loading up their bikes and setting up a picnic while we grabbed some great images of them. So sweet!

So on to their big day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whitney and Jake really wanted to be relaxed after the ceremony, so they chose to see each other beforehand. This gave us the time to shoot their awesome bridal party as well! We all cruised around the Japanese Friendship Gardens for awhile before the beautiful nuptials took place and had a great time!

Enjoy this fabulous slideshow with more highlights from Whitney and Jake’s wedding!

There was so much emotion during the ceremony. We saw lots ofย  teary eyes and warm smiles from the crowd, and that always makes us so proud to create images for these families!

All of the perfectly planned details that the families put together (along with the help of Geneene and Tammy from Celebrations, of course!) were beautiful. They really blended nicely with the overall “Zen” feeling of the day!

We are always so happy to work with awesome wedding vendors. ๐Ÿ™‚ Geneene and Tammy really went the extra mile to make sure the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. They were SO attentive, and really sweet to boot!

We love that Whitney and Jake know how to have fun with each other. They always seem to be laughing about something! Wait… they aren’t laughing at us, are they? Yeah. Maybe they spotted us hiding behind trees and being stealthy to get catch some awesome moments like this…

To the beautiful newlyweds… thank you so much for being you. We have had so much fun with you! Looking forward to our next food and wine outing. Give us a call when you guys have some time! ๐Ÿ™‚
