“two is better than one”
WOW, where do I even begin?! It took me a while to prepare this blog post because there were just so many images of their beautiful wedding that I wanted to share. I figured out the word that best describes their wedding: thoughtful. Thao + Robert planned every detail so carefully and shared their whole wedding planning experience on their must read wedding blog! Their blog even won Aisle Dash’s Best Real Bride Blog award! Thao is a wedding photographer but she might have a second career in wedding planning!
I was so honored and happy to be a part of this entire experience. Thao + Robert are high school sweethearts and so obviously in love. They are both so ambitious, fun and as you can see, super stylish! I spent 14 hours with them on their wedding day but I seriously could not get enough of them, their wonderful family + friends + vendors and of course all of their wedding yumminess!
Thao’s Ines Di Santo wedding dress was absolutely stunning. Brian + I had waaay too much fun photographing it.
One of my favorite parts of the ceremony was when Thao started crying and Robert took his handkerchief and started blotting her tears. Real love here people.
Thao + Robert’s wedding reception was at one of my favorite Orange County wedding venues: Rancho Las Lomas.
Check out Thao’s dress!!! So breathtaking!
Thao + Robert picked such vibrant colors!
The bridesmaids had something up their sleeves, er I mean legs :). And how cute are their flasks with crystals?! It’s all about the details people!
What a stylish bridal party :).
I could have shot here all day. And I pretty much did :).
And I definitely could shoot these two forever :).
I am so in love with these!
One of my faves of the day:
Aren’t they so lovely together?!
I just loved the flower girls’ outfits! So whimsical!
Brian got these super captures of the girls!
Now on to the reception details! Kelly Duprat did such an aaaamazing job of coordinating everything! She worked so hard that day!
Thao + Robert had a silhouette artist for guests to enjoy. So creative!
Thao surprised her new hubby with a very sexy dance to Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams”. She definitely worked it!
Now this is a sign of a good party. Or someone having a really good time.
And an even better sign: happy newlyweds :).
