Angela + Tom’s Wedding Highlights | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

Aloha Hawai'i!

I have been so excited for Angela’s and Tom Monterey Summer Wedding! It seems like yesterday I had just met them at Starbucks, then before you know it , a gorgeous Engagement Session in Big Sur, and now wedding day was here!!!

I met up with the bride early in the morning at Pistons and Pearls to meet her bridal party and document them getting their hair and makeup done!!! If you have not been into this shop, you need to go!! It is oh so cool inside!!

After that, I headed over to the gorgeous Portola Hotel and Spa to start on the detail shots! When I walked in and saw that Angela had set up all the dresses, I was so happy! Especially when I saw these STUNNING bridesmaids dresses!!! I may need to head over to David’s Bridal to pick up one for me! They photographed so beautifully!

These were seriously one of the most gorgeous floral arrangements I’ve seen! And the bride made them herself!

Now it was off for the first look! I truly truly recommend that the bride and groom do a First Look, and I was so happy that these two did! After being with Angela most of the day, I could see that as we got closer, she was getting a bit nervous, as most brides do! The minute she saw her groom, and her groom saw her, not only were there tears in both of their eyes, but I could see the tension fade. They were so happy!

All that was left now, was to promise to love each other, forever. And that they did!

“I’ll take this slow, sweet walk with you.¬†You’ll let go of my hand to say I do And he will discover just how blessed a life can be I know ’cause all those years ago someone handed you to me.

Now, it was time to party! Let me just tell you, Navy Officers know how to break it down!!!

Angela and Tom, Thank you for choosing me to be a part of this so very special day!!! I am so sorry I couldn’t keep my eyes dry!!! You guys deserve all of the happiness in the world!!!
