From my first phone conversation with Colleen, I felt like I was catching up with a dear friend. Eddie had encountered Colleen 15 yrs. ago but was too shy to ask her out. Colleen didn't know she had an admirer at the time. It must have been destiny because they happened to be at the same social gathering and Eddie wasn't going to let another opportunity pass him by. Their wedding reflected who they are as individuals and as a couple. Colleen is extremely creative as well as her friends and family. She made the bouquets, decor and the bridal party's jewelry. Her Sister-in-law made the wedding cake and the list goes on. Their wedding day was a perfect beach wedding. What other setting would be more appropriate for a Sea Captain and his beautiful wife. Much thanks to Marina who has consistently been my second shooter in '09.
Joshua & Vivian 's wedding was very intimate and surrounded by the natural landscape of the Japanese Garden. Vivian's cream chiffon dress complimented Joshua's linen suit. The color was a perfect choice for the various shades of greens in the garden. Vivian handcrafted the details of the day as you can see in the last photo montage. They met on eharmony, which proves that online dating sites are sucessful. Instead of opting for a honeymoon they purchased a home together...that's so romantic. A big thanks goes out to Marina, who second shot for me.
