Imagine the shock when the groomsmen showed up at the first look wearing bright Hawaiian shirts, saying that this was exactly what they were going to wear at the wedding. It was a prank of course, but this told me more than any smile or pose would say. It showed me that the couple had pretty cool friends, and when you’re surrounded by amazing people like these, then you must be more than amazing, too. And this was exactly what I proved as I captured every moment at Ryan and Jamie’s Kate Sessions wedding.
The first look was done at the Marina Village, and we also found this wonderful spot at the Balboa Park for some portraits and bridal party shots. You could feel that the couple couldn’t get to make their ‘forever’ official as they gazed into each other’s eyes.
It all blended together into one fantastic and fun-filled day. The beautiful view of Mission Bay as we witnessed the ceremony at Kate Sessions wedding made the event even more breathtaking, as you see a powerful scene that showed nothing but love set against that magnificent backdrop.
Even as we went on to the reception, you can feel that addicting, laidback fun that hung in the air as you see that not only did Ryan and Jamie have a cool and tightknit group of friends, but they also shared a strong kind of friendship with one another, the best foundation for any marriage.
With the rustic wedding decorations done by the bride and her friends accented by the wonderful lights and tulle by Pedro, and the mouth-watering food prepared by Wild Thyme catering, you can definitely mark the date as one of the most perfect weddings you can ever have. It wasn’t about the glamour, and it definitely wasn’t about extravagance. It was all about life, love, and friendship, and I captured it all, every fun and loving second of it.
