laura and kyle {a wedding}

In the craziness that was last summer (a dear friend got married and I was honored to stand by her that day, then my gall bladder had to be removed...) I realized I never blogged Laura and Kyle's sweet wedding! 

They got married on a beautiful June day last summer in San Jose. I got to photograph the bride getting ready and toasting with her mom, sister and friends.

I loved Laura's beautiful dress and purple petticoat as well as her shoe choice...comfortable and perfectly her. 

Laura and Kyle elected not to see each other before the ceremony, so after it was done we walked over to the Friendship Gardens and got some photos of the newlyweds together.

Laura and Kyle brought photos of their parents' weddings...This is one of my all-time favorite shots. 

I love how colors play together, but there is something so beautiful and emotional about black and white...Especially a wedding ceremony in black and white. Add to that personal details like the officiant being the bride's uncle and a special sake ceremony and you can feel the love and joy here.

After shots of the couple, the party started with dinner, dancing, sweet toasts and a lot of love.

I love how he looks at her. 

Fun father-daughter dance! 

Laura and Kyle, your wedding was such a treat to photograph! From all the personal details to your sweet promises to one another, it was a beautiful wedding and I wish you many years of happiness!
