the wedding day
I am beyond excited to share Angelica and Anh's incredibly special day on the blog today! It is a wedding photographer’s dream come true! The wedding venue felt like stepping into romance from the moment you arrive. Inside the venue, there is wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, white shiplap, huge cathedral windows, and several sparkling chandeliers – photography heaven!
Angelica and her bride squad arrived at the venue relaxed and already beyond beautiful. They snacked and sipped mimosas in the prettiest, roomiest getting ready suite before slipping into some of the most elegant dresses (both bride & bridesmaids’!). The ladies laughed with ease through pictures, and Angelica couldn’t have been a more relaxed, peaceful, or stunning bride. Anh & the men shared the same easygoing vibe. The whole wedding party was truly a delight to work with from beginning to end.
The venue matched the refined taste and classic beauty of the bride & groom. Breathtaking florals lined the grand staircase, the doorway, and the arch where Angelica and Anh said their vows. The bouquets complimented the rose, satin bridesmaids dresses perfectly, and the reception featured colorful centerpieces at every table.
The endless greenery with pastel-colored accents of garden roses decorating the white arch at the ceremony space is an image that I will never forget -- remembering when Anh turned around and saw his bride for the first time, he grinned from ear to ear with tears welling up in his eyes. Talk about a deep romance! Joyous tears flowed all around.
Every detail added to the atmosphere so well, yet the day seemed to pass without a single worry or rush. The people celebrating and the vendors contributing all made such a dream team. (See full vendor list at the bottom of this page.)
Angelica and Anh, your love story is exactly why I feel called to capture and document all the little and big moments in life. I hope that these photos will be a forever reminder of your love as husband & wife, passed down to generations to come! Cheers to your love – Mr. & Mrs. Luu!
