Allia + Kevin are rad.
They are the kind of couple that, had I known them from before, just as friends, I would have really wanted to be invited to their wedding.
When Allia described what their wedding would be like the first time we met, I knew I wanted to photograph it too. It was the way she clearly was thinking of what their guests would enjoy, not just the things she or Kevin wanted… A house for all their bridal party to stay in for the weekend. Delicious food. Fresh Margaritas. An awesome dance party.
Oh, and it was going to be at the Spanish Oaks Ranch in Santa Margarita. And their ceremony would be under the Oak trees that looked out over the valley…
But through all of this what I enjoyed the most was seeing Kevin + Allia marry each other. They had been dating since high school, and there is something really special about relationships that have lasted that long. It was clear in the toasts of their brother + sister – Kevin + Allia were already considered family. And I loved seeing Kevin jump on the dance floor when the Persian dancing started.
It was a really great day. And I’m pretty glad I was invited.
Seriously, Allia. I die.
Me and the flowers… we had a serious thing going on. I was in love.
Kevin made this Redwood Beer Bar with his own two hands. I was totally in awe of it. Legit.
