Sandy and Jesse : Wedding


Her brother-in-law stood in front of the wedding guests and thanked them for traveling from Los Angeles, Ohio, New York, and Korea. Sandy and Jesse looked at each other standing hand-in-hand in front of the pastor and smiled sheepishly. Their relationship was more than two years in the making and no one could deny its potency.

Throughout the speeches, laughter echoed through the Laguna Beach canyon while guests discovered that Sandy showed Jesse how to coolly part his hair, Jesse’s love for making dinner (and just before eating, they look at each other say yummy!yummy!yummy!yummy!), and Sandy’s new-found knowledge for everything Ohio-ish. However, everyone who toasted the couple all said the same thing: They’re perfect for each other and their uncompromising devotion to each other is a testament for all to emulate.

Sandy and Jesse…thank you for allowing me to document your wedding day. I think you’re equally amazing, but together form this force of unadulterated love…I’m honored to have documented your first day as husband and wife. I wish you the best as you carve your niche in New York City, but I also look forward to the day when you will return to the OC’s shimmering sun and beautiful beaches! Have fun in Costa Rica! Much Love…J*

Sandy wore a stunning Monique Lhuillier wedding gown…

…and to spice things up, she wore these funky Emporio Armani heels…

Sandy and Jesse opted to see each other before the ceremony (I can’t stress how lovely this makes a wedding day and how much fun we have with a little extra time for photos!)…I think she looks regal in this picture!

Of all the lovely spots around the venue, I just loved the feel of this doorway…Jesse looks extra cool in his John Varvatos suit and skinny tie. I love men who appreciate a good dose fashion forward dapperness!

First Look…

Courtney Toney with Joyful Weddings and Events added her touches throughout the ceremony and reception…I can’t express how much I LOVE working with her…she’s awesome!

Sandy and Jesse had a smaller wedding cake and opted to share the sweetness of their day in the form of Sprinkles Cupcakes…so cute!

Before the grand entrace, we snuck away for a few more pictures in the beautiful golden Orange County sunlight…
