One of the best feelings from photographing a wedding is when you feel like you are part of the family with your couples and their family and friends by the end of the night. For Cindy & Tony’s wedding, I felt as if I’ve known all the friends and family right from the get-go, and I love every moment that I got to celebrate with them!
The bride and groom got ready at Milton Ridge along with their wedding party. Cindy prepared a surprised gift for her girls - they were accessories from Kendra Scott! She also prepared a love letter for Tony and so did Tony! After they each read the letter separately, we went outside in the courtyard for their first look. And fitting to Tony’s goofy personality, he let out a loud “YES!” when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time. We took advantage of the beautiful courtyard lined with evergreens and had the wedding party photos there. Afterward, we realized there’s an upper part of the courtyard lined with stones and tea lights. It was as if we are in California, and I absolutely fell in love with this place!
The ceremony was held in the historic white chapel. It was quaint and all white inside too! The couple opted for two simple floral arrangements, and it was perfect. Moreover, Cindy and Tony had their guests showered them with a bubble exit after they sealed their vows with a kiss! We decided to spend a bit more time with just the two of them before the reception and took some sunset photos. Though the sun didn’t directly shined through the luscious evergreens, we were able to grab some more photos of Cindy and Tony as they were spending some time alone for the first time as a married couple!
The night didn’t end without more fun - the couple’s intimate first dance, Cindy changed into a beautiful red dress to honor both of their culture, and the funniest speech given by the best man (he brought the best prop!) to date - it was a true party and celebration for the union of these two sweet souls!
Cindy and Tony - Congratulations again! And thanks so much for having me along to capture your love moments!
