This wedding was very special to photograph. Our friends CiCi and Paul were married surrounded by their immediate family and 120-year old orange trees, under a beautiful Redlands sunset.
This lovely day was full of personal details; The ring belonged to Paul’s grandmother, the dress was vintage, and they wrote their own vows. CiCi’s friend did her gorgeous classic hollywood makeup while her mother and childhood babysitter watched with love. The ceremony, officiated by a family friend, was light hearted, sweet, and at times had everyone bursting with laughter. Nearing the end of the ceremony, Paul’s father beautifully played and sang a song that had us reaching for a tissue (who am I kidding, I was already in tears). Before their first kiss as a married couple, CiCi and Paul shared a sip of wine from one special cup to symbolize their union.
We left that night with our hearts feeling full. We were so fortunate to be there with our friends and we felt abundantly welcomed by their loving families.
