Jamie & Brandon were married on a beautiful, very warm Sunday in September.  Other than being  a bit toasty, it was a perfect perfect day!  The ceremony was so lovely, the reception was super fun, and everyone was having a great time!

Jamie & Brandon had everything at the Intercontinental Hotel, which made the logistics of the day awesome!  They got ready for the day there in separate areas, they had their first look on the rooftop where the ceremony would be and then we went about town for some fun photos before coming back for the ceremony and reception!

While I was photographing the girls, Mike Tsai was working with me photographing the boys.

I will start with Jamie getting even more beautiful with the help of Gina Holmberg.

What a wonderful day. Whitney & Derek’s wedding day was just perfect.  The temperature was not too hot. Everyone was full of joy, anticipation and love.  I was so happy to be there photographing this day for Whitney and her family.  I had the pleasure of photographing Whitney’s senior photos, her cousins and a whole slew of her friends :)  When I looked around at the reception, I saw so many familiar faces that I have photographed either senior photos or family photos over the years it really warmed my heart.  Plus all the moms in this group of girls are just so awesome.  I love them all :)

Also, it was so fun learning that Derek and some of his groomsmen and plenty of his friends at the wedding are Farmhouse boys!  My son is also a farmhouse boy!  It makes me happy to see how close they all are and makes me excited for all the fun future things my son and his fraternity brothers will share :)

Whitney’s dress was stunning!  I was dying to see it on her!  I will start with the dress :)
