“So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are”
— Ed Sheeran \ “Thinking Out Loud” —
It was the hottest day of the year thus far, the beginning of a crazy heat wave we’re still in the midst of. Yet Johnna & Scott laughed and smiled through it all, just SO excited that their day was finally here! That’s all that truly mattered. When I arrived at The Kenmore Inn, the girls were in the midst of the hustle and bustle of finishing up hair and make-up, and the anticipation of the day was palpable! The moment Johnna slipped into her dress, it all became so real. With her groom downstairs waiting for her, Johnna completed her finishing touches and went out to meet him. The look on Scott’s face when he saw his bride was magical! Johnna looked beyond gorgeous, and it was such an incredible moment to witness!
Johnna and Scott, I know the heat was beyond what anyone knew it would be, yet you two were so amazing. Your wedding day was gorgeous from beginning to end, and your reception was such a fun party!! You are surrounded by amazing family and friends, and it was an honor to capture your day! Thank you!! Enjoy many of my favorites!! (And I totally think the heat was totally worth it with the variety of portraits we got). :-)
His FACE. Ahhh!!
This girl has the most gorgeous blue eyes I’ve seen!
The grounds of Gari Melcher’s Belmont were incredible!!
I just adore the sweetness of this one!
I think they were looking over at their bridal party, but I just love this one!!
I love the way the flowers just pop in this room!
During dinner we slipped out for sunset portraits, and I was in love with this incredible staircase!
Congratulations Johnna & Scott!!!
A huge thank you to Karyn Johnson for shooting with me, and all the vendors who helped make this day beautiful!
