Sam and Connor, oh man where do I begin? Probably the nicest humans I’ve been lucky to photograph. Salt of the earth right here! Their excitement for their wedding was contagious. I can’t wait to be at their reception in May at Mt.Woodson this year. Their backyard was the perfect poolside ceremony space. Perfect the the cutest first dance ever. I just love these two and I love how the pandemic didn’t stop them from starting their marriage!
Sam got ready in her moms bedroom. Her laptop was open with all her bridesmaids on zoom. One of them even had Sam and Connor’s engagement photo as her backdrop! haha!!
What would a wedding day be without a little plucking of your brother’s eyebrows??
Blooms by Brooklyn killed it with the bouquet! I was obsessed!
Sam stopped at the end of the stairwell to pray with her parents. It was one of the most beautiful moments from the whole day.
Connor gifted Sam with a necklace, right before the ceremony started! Isn’t that so sweet!
The couple took part in communion during their ceremony. They both went around and fed their family bread and wine. Sam was during this portion of the ceremony. The couple also passed around their rings to have their family pray over them. Just so many beautiful moments during this day.
Connor is literally jumping for joy. Again I can’t get over how contagious their joy is!
This little moment after the ceremony between Sam and her Dad had me holding back tears. How incredibly beautiful and sweet?
We literally took all their photos in their neighborhood. We found a random walking trail at the end of the street and it was perfect for photos! Sam’s dad insisted I take some photos of them in the front of the house under their big tree. I took a few and as were were snapping pics, Sam and Connor’s best friends screamed their congratulations from across the street. They stayed in their car the whole time just to show their support. Talk about best friends! Who spend their whole day camped out on your street just to show you they love you.
The “reception” was dinner, donuts, toasts and a hug goodnight. It truly was the perfect day.
