What a very lovely intimate ceremony Alicia and Mike had at The Longview Mansion in the end of January!  I really love weddings that you can tell are just perfectly suited for a couple.  Alicia and Mike had their close family members and a few close friends there to witness their commitment to love each other forever, followed by an early dinner, cake and a sparkler send off :)  It was a bit chilly out but certainly not bad for January !  And nice and sunny!!!!!

Alicia’s dress was so classically beautiful!!!!

Something about these moments really gets to me.  I love seeing grandpa sitting here, and Mike chatting with their pastor before the ceremony and of course Mike seeing his bride for the first time :)

…..oh how I love NYE weddings!  The excitement of the holidays still in the air, the sparkle & glitz, new opportunities and hope, new goals and dreams, reflecting on the happy memories of the year- All of this and a WEDDING!!!!!!!!  What a great way to enter the New Year with a full heart.

I was glad to spend it watching Lindsey & Jeff smile and laugh with each other :)  It was a sunny day with mild temperatures but the wind was CRAZY.  We really have had a windy season now that I think about it, lol!

Lindsey & Jeff were married at the Country Club Congregational United Church of Christ with their reception following at Loose Mansion.  It was fun for me to end my year shooting at their Church because that was where I shot my first wedding of 2013 as well!  My second shooter, Mike Tsai, started and ended the year shooting with me as well :)

I will start with the girls getting ready and Lindsey’s dress!  Oh my what a dress!!!!  Check out the cake that was designed to match the top of Lindsey’s dress!!!!!!

This is what my job is about….right here….the moments you can feel.  I could look at this a hundred times and feel goose bumpy over Lindsey’s dad seeing his girl in her wedding dress.
