Jen and James are married! : ) I fell in love with these two at their engagement session and couldn’t have been more thrilled to shoot their intimate wedding at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. I used to dream of having a HUGE wedding as a little girl (all my sisters had huge weddings, esp. my oldest sister Emily who had 1,200 guests!), but weddings like Jen and James’ make me appreciate the intimacy of smaller groups. There were eleven guests who witnessed the beautiful coming together of these two and they fit perfectly into the little space Jen had picked out above the waterfall; I love how cozy it felt! : )
Jen’s wedding dress was BEAUTIFUL! It was the same dress her now mother-in-law wore for her own wedding with a few changes made by the talented Fionna (who also did Jen’s hair and make-up!). Love all that lace!
meanwhile james was waiting at the Arboretum for Jen… this little girl was SO cute! Here she’s pointing out that she has the same dress on as Jen! the crowd of witnesses! After the ceremony we went straight into portraits. First pictures of the Mr. and Mrs! : ) The lovely couple stopped by my house last week to drop off a cute little pouch (with a camera on it!) and some green tea Kit Kat bars. As I opened the gifts in front of Jen she laughed out, “It’s GREEN, your favorite!” They are seriously the sweetest! Thank you so much you two and congrats again! : )
