On a gorgeous September morning, Sarah and her bridesmaids gathered in her parents home. Her mom watching on lovingly as the final touches to Sarah’s makeup are applied. When everything is complete and her bridesmaids are dressed, Sarah and her mom help her into her traditional Korean dress. We met her dad and bridesmaids outside and did a quick reveal for them before heading down to slip into her wedding gown. Her wedding gown was purchased through The Bride’s Project which is an incredible organization that sells wedding gowns with all of the profits going to cancer related charities. After another quick reveal, we head to Legends Estates Winery for a quick First Look between Sarah and Derek.
Waiting anxiously in the vineyard for his bride, Derek tried to keep his composure but emotion took over. Sarah came up behind him and called his name. The sweetest moments of their pure elation at seeing each other on their wedding day. Some hugs and tears, sweet words and smiles. They took one last look before heading off to await the ceremony.
The guests were thrilled to see Sarah and Derek’s pup Boylston come up the aisle as ring bearer, who greeted his dad before waiting patiently to the side. The beautiful and sweet ceremony was accented by the musician and the gorgeous blue skies. And it was only fitting to have Rev Derek there as he was a part of their first date and proposal (he had drove the limo Derek picked Sarah up in)! They said I Do with the lake in the background and toasted their guests at the end.
The reception was full of beautiful and personal details. Tearful speeches and sweet dances gave way to amazing food. When we saw the incredible sunset beginning outside, we snuck out for some vineyard photos before Sarah went to change back into her Korean dress to surprise her guests.
A perfect day for such a wonderful couple! I couldn’t have been happier to have spent the day with you both – wishing you a lifetime of love and laughter!
