When I first met Tina & Sean that little voice in my head saying, "Oh please pick me!" was deafening. For me it's important to have a connection with my clients and with these two I felt it. Although, I do suspect anyone that meets them can't help but to like them instantly. I especially loved the fact that they are high school sweethearts as I am blessed to be so happily married to mine. The love they have for each other was so apparent I just HAD to be the one to capture it. Thanks again Tina and Sean for picking me! Such an honor.
The day of the wedding was lovely. Sun was shining and the excitement was palpable. I started shooting Tina at her parents lovely home while my second shooter, David Sno, captured Sean at his family home. One of the unique moments of the day was that Tina and Sean chose to do a blindfolded prayer together before the actual ceremony at St. Ferdinand's Church. It was very sweet and emotional. I have done many First Looks before but this one was different and special to the couple.
Another one of my favorite aspects of course was their lightsaber grand entrance at The Castaway in Burbank. BEST GRAND ENTRANCE EVER. My geeky heart was a flutter. Check out Sean's cool geek chic AT-AT cufflinks as well. Enough of my rambling, please just see the photos to get more of a sense of this amazing day. There were so many lovely details and emotional moments at this wedding it was impossible to include them all.
Congrats to the perfect couple Tina and Sean! xo, Rachel
