Lindsay & Ken {Wedding at the Japanese Friendship Garden}

When my dear friends, Ken and Lindsay asked me to photograph their wedding, I couldn’t be more honored!  Ken and I used to work together in the biotech industry, and ever since we’ve become good friends over the years.  Gorgeous Lindsay waltzed into his life one day, and just lit up the place wherever he was.  She is also so wonderful with Ken’s beautiful daughter Athena.  We knew they were perfect for each other!

Their wedding was perfect.  The amount of personalization that went into planning really made their day wonderfully intimate.  I was excited about every detail of their wedding: Lindsay’s Vera Wang dress, the gorgeous flowers by Jennifer Cole Florals, the amazing cake by Sweet Cheeks, and the fantastic venues.  After they fed each other cake, Lindsay gushed about how wonderful it tasted and asked me if I wanted to taste.  Um, yes!   How often do the bride and groom feed their photographer cake?  score for me! haha!

I must admit though – I am incredibly jealous of their honeymoon trip.  They will be traveling through Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Bali!

Congratulations, my friends!  I wish you a fantastic journey together through life together.

A big thank you to all the vendors who made this wonderful day possible and as gorgeous as ever!
