She designed her own dress. She drove to the flower district herself before the wedding to grab the most beautiful stems and create her own bouquets. When they asked "If anyone has any objections" during the ceremony, her dad wiped away a tear and raised his hand, not yet ready to let her go. A groomsman flute solo, a one of a kind opal ring, custom floral robes for the bridesmaids, blue suede shoes. Her deep red lipstick stained his lips during their first kiss.
All in all, it was a day all their own.
A big, gigantic thank you to my second photographer, the lovely Kym from Kym Vitar Photography. I love having you by my side, my blonde partner in crime.

Nikki and Shesha, owners of Atomic Ballroom in Irvine. They are incredible, hilarious, and so in love. Not just with each other, but with their beautiful children, with the life they have created together, and with the community that they have surrounded themselves with. I count myself lucky and priveledged to be a small part of that community.
