Jane and Kevin : Wedding

Photography

Jane and Kevin closely sat next to each other as their Maid of Honor toasted their love. She made it a point to express she worried Kevin wouldn’t be able to handle Jane’s feisty demeanor upon first meeting him, but over the years noticed Kevin held Jane in the palm of his hand. Not gripped, nor clenched, but, rather, with his fingers loosely facing heavenward. Kevin loves Jane so evidently and knows she needs a lover who will surround her heart with devotion and support, not merely words. Their Maid of Honor acknowledged this, but it’s something everyone already knew.

Their wedding day was filled with fun, joy, and gorgeousness. Basically—as Jane so aptly described her wedding—it was feroche. Surrounded by their friends and family at Seven Degrees—one of Orange County’s most fabulous wedding venues—their special day was spectacular. The wedding was coordinated by Jeannie Le and her assistant, Nite, and nothing was left unbeautified…they were nothing short of amazing! The florals were designed by Flower Allie the event was captured by the ever amazing videographer Kyle of Elysium Productions. Every vendor was a dream to work with and I was truly honored to stand beside them and document this wedding.

Jane and Kevin…I think you’re so feroche (I’m going to use that words as many as times possible in this post!) and truly amazing. From the minute we met, I knew we’d become friends…and I felt so blessed to be photographing your wedding day! I know you’re in Paris right now and have been patiently waiting for this post, so I hope it does the love you share justice. More than anything, I wanted to capture your joy and laughter…because that’s what makes your relationship so special to me. Have fun in France and eat a chocolate and banana crepe for me! Much Love and Appreciation…J*

Jane and her bridesmaids have been friends since elementary school…I can’t say enough nice things about this group of girls…I want them to be MY friends too! 😉

Last minute words of encouragement before the couple’s First Look

Jane and Kevin decided to see each other before the ceremony…which is something I can’t stress enough! I absolutely LOVE the extra time allocated for pictures and while they weren’t initially going to do it, they opted for a First Look. Yay! These images were taken just moments before Jane and Kevin saw each other for the first time on their wedding day…

The First Look…

Jane and I are TV soul mates…she watches America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway (she’s my little Feroche Coutura!), so she knew just what to do in front of my camera! I love expressive brides and I believe Jane embodies everything I desire for a girl to be on her wedding day…Fun, Fabulous, and Confident!

Jane really worked hard on finding the perfect personality fit for her reception details…I think she did wonderfully! 🙂
