Daniel and Jessica are the sweetest couple. They share such a beautiful, comfortable, and playful love!  It was such an honor to capture their engagement photos and I know their June wedding is going to be perfect!

Special thanks to Flawless Faces for Jessica’s gorgeous hair and makeup! Jessica is the kind of girl who could look beautiful 30 seconds after she rolled out of bed, but Flawless Faces really made her natural beauty shine.

Onto the photos!  :)

Five years of marriage. It may not sound like a lot to people who’ve been married 20, 40, or even 60 years, but it’s an accomplishment that deserves celebration and recognition. And you know why? Because 5 years is enough time to realize that he’s never going to stop drinking straight out of the milk carton and she’s never going to put her curling iron away. It’s enough time to discover that he really does intend to watch sports every.single.weekend. and she really does leave the gas gauge below the empty line without a second thought. Five years is enough time to realize that your spouse isn’t perfect, that isn’t going to change, and then learn how to live and love in that reality.

It’s amazing any of us make it through those first five years.  ;)

Mike and Heather have made it five years plus a little bit and they’ve done so with grace, love, and so much laughter along the way. Their love has been a joy to witness and I look forward to celebrating their marriage for decades to come!

These photos were taken while Mike and Heather spent a long weekend in Palm Springs, California.

 

Amazing isn’t a powerful enough word to describe Mike and Sherwin’s wedding, but it’s the best word I’ve got so I’m going with it. It was AMAZING. There was the gorgeous dress, the perfect venue, bling for days, and, most importantly, a couple in love and absolutely ecstatic that their wedding day had arrived. I shouldn’t have been surprised at the amazingness (yes, spell check, that’s a word) given that In the Now was in charge of design and coordination, but it still took my breath away. I was 100% in love with the entire day.

Mike and Sherwin, you two blew me away on your wedding day. You laughed, danced, and sang through your wedding and it was an absolute joy to watch and document. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day. Love and blessings to you both!

Soka University was the perfect venue. I can’t wait to shoot there again!
Probably one of my favorite moments of the day … Mike did a 360° walk around Sherwin to take in her magnificence. Adorable.
Sherwin’s father passed away last year, so Sherwin carried a picture of him on her bouquet. So sweet.
Loved this wedding party, especially former bride and groom Carizza and Devon!

Flower Allie did a great job with the florals – the were beautiful and sparkly, just like Sherwin!

You’ll notice that Sherwin has a microphone in her hand as she is walking down the aisle. That’s because she and Mike sang a duet to each other as she walked! It was so beautiful and they totally pulled it off. Can you imagine walking down those stairs, in those shoes, singing??? Sherwin, you are amazing.
The reception took place inside Founder’s Hall at Soka University with it’s perfect mix of modernity and elegance.
LOVE the table numbers on the vases!
Mike and Sherwin entered dancing and rarely stopped the whole evening. It was truly a celebration!
Love this custom dance floor monogram – an In the Now signature detail. So awesome.
Sherwin and her Mom danced a Mother-Daughter dance to Dance with My Father  by Luther Vandross. So very touching.
