Vintage and sentimental items are not automatically similar but it is undeniable that if they’re both present, they do work together pretty well. Especially when it comes to something very personal to the bride, like her wedding gown. At first it may seem that our bride’s wedding gown was intentionally designed to look a little bit old-fashioned but in fact it’s more of a sentimental choice, for a part of it actually came from the bride’s mom’s gown way back. The idea to have a part of your parent’s wedding in your own is something not every couple are given the opportunity to have, so it’s heartwarming when a bride and groom decides to incorporate their parent’s history into the start of their future.
Megan & Michael’s wedding is a perfect blend of traditional and personal. They knew which areas to follow from the classic norm but they did not hesitate to put in hints of creative and modern details as well. And despite the difference between the two styles, you can see from the pictures that it was a yin and yang event as everything fit perfectly and smoothly. From the crisp and gorgeous outfits to the cool trolley bridal car, nothing seems out of place for this elegant wedding.
In Linh & Chris wedding day, everything was almost at par with tradition. The ceremony and the reception were elegant and classy but they followed conventional themes. So when our couple had their after-ceremony shoot, they decided to squeeze in a little bit of a modern twist. This bit was such a delight for their photographer as she was provided with a venue, the Naguchi Gardens, that was breathtaking and unique. The couple was able to pose as they like and it set the fun mood for their reception, which we were told was just completely stress-free. Also, look out for the bride’s outfit change because it was a perfect mix of class and sexy!
Prior to reading Staci & Brett’s account of their special day, looking at their photos constantly reminded me of the words “magical” and “fantastical”. There was just something so charming about their pictures but I cannot lay my finger on why. I figured it must be the backdrop since old rock textured structures and blue skies reminds me of fairytale castles but then I read a tidbit of our couple’s love story and how Staci got the idea of choosing a Disney Princess inspired wedding gown and I knew that even if the magical description of the event wasn’t planned, it surely wasn’t done in complete ignorance. Our couple even met in one of the world’s magical place, Disneyland! I hope you can see what I meant, and I know every wedding day is supposed to be magical but this one very much nailed that description.
