There is so much to love about Lily and Chia Saun’s wedding. Getting married in downtown Monterey right above the ocean is pretty spectacular, and it was clear from the get-go that their entourage knew what it meant to be the bridal-PARTY! I immediately felt welcomed by everyone. From Lily’s dress with fantastic pockets (who doesn’t want pockets?), and stunningly glitzy Alexander McQueen shoes, to Chia Saun’s monogrammed shirt, suit, and Rolex Daytona they were styling.
Some of my favorite moments of the day included the Chinese door games (think- guys passing each other an orange with only their necks), the look on Lily’s face as Chia Saun saw her for the first time, tears of laughter during their vows, and Chia Saun’s thank you address in which everyone felt both the love he has for his bride and the way together they approached their own wedding day as a chance to celebrate the gratitude he and Lily have for their friends and family.
We had a great time shooting on the beach in some soft light and one of my favorite portraits of the year in the first shot I share below. Thank you both for trusting me with such a beautiful day!
