Real couples, those that are simply themselves – focused on their day, having fun and simply being in the moment! That’s just what Elinna and Pat are all about! She loves food, and I mean LOVES food – after their engagement session we didn’t just get grilled cheese sandwiches but finished it off with ice cream and we talked about their favorite foods! They are incredibly laid back and simply enjoy each other and having fun! A couple that jams on the dance floor all night, had custom stickers made, combine both their cultures as part of their day and she happily changed into sneakers so she could dance…. and I mean breakdance! Their day was filled with so much laughter and happiness and truly a fun wedding!
Elinna is incredibly talented designing their timeline and drawing them herself!
Pat’s family crest perfect seal for their inviations!
Their sweet 13 years old fur baby, Wonton attended the wedding, tuxedo and all!
Always enjoy it when Ron is the officiant. One of the nicest guys ever and always makes the ceremony so special.
Give me all the golden hour, even earlier now with daylight savings but so so pretty!
48 Fields is just such a pretty venue and always fun to photograph there!
Oh Pie Sister’s pies are the best!
In traditional Chinese customs, Elinna and Pat participated in a tea ceremony. Elinna wore the same wedding dress her mom wore for the ceremony before changing back to her wedding gown. During the tea ceremony guests are served tea and in return give the couple gifts.
Oh that there is my breakdancing bride!!
Sweet moments with Elinna and Pat’s parents on the dance floor.
We stepped out for some nighttime photos – they had an LED balloon which made for some fun photos!
Congratulations Elinna and Pat! We must make dinner plans soon, once you return from the honeymoon! Wishing you all the happiness!
