Christina & Jack : Married

“Wait, don’t all grooms do it?” Jack sweetly said to me as we waited for Christina. “Maybe some grooms do it. Not all. But if you do, trust me, you’re starting your marriage off right!” I replied. You see, Jack planned on singing to Christina as her father walked her down the aisle. Are you swooning yet? Because I, for sure, thought it was one of the sweetest touches I’ve ever heard. “I don’t know if you’ve heard the song, it’s called Hold On. And I think it’s gonna go pretty well.” And with that short conversation, the day began. It was a sweet day. Very easygoing. Full of family. Full of friends. And most importantly, full of love.

Christina and Jack are the type of people that laugh a lot. They make things look easy. They make everything they do genuine and heartfelt. And just like with their engagement session, I was beside myself with joy. That I was able to share in their absolutely beautiful day. Thank you for letting me be there to capture it. Congratulations!

The two were married at Irvine Presbyterian. There were several colorful canvases hanging on the wall so I decided to use one to match Christina’s AMAZING shoes!

The two opted for a first look. Could not recommend this enough. It’s so intimate and sweet and allows lots of time for photos throughout the day! I love this shot. I swear there was an invisible legal crosswalk!

Here’s Jack singing to his bride. I’m positive I was tearing up at this point. I had to remind myself to take pictures! After the ceremony, Christina and Jack held a tea ceremony to honor their elders. It was so fun to watch this special tradition together as they start their new lives. And then a few more photos around the Turnip Rose property.
I’m not lying when I say they danced the night away. I think I saw Christina leave the dance floor like, twice the entire night.
