There’s something about getting married in a house full of memories. Antiques, beautiful walls crowded with family portraits, delicate figurines on shelves, and an atmosphere of comfort greeted me as we arrived to capture Taija & Desmond’s incredible day–as well as a host of the most cheerful bridesmaids in THE ENTIRE WORLD. While booming laughter sounded from the basement, where Desmond and his Merry Men were getting ready, Taija and her girls were laid back, chill, making jokes, and remembering great moments from their friendships.
One of the most incredibly important parts of this day, for me (as a nerdy girl that loved Sailor Moon in High School and felt awkward and “different” all through high school) was the level of acceptance for Desmond and Taija. They played Korean Pop Music, they locked arms and skipped into their reception, laughed with wild abandon, danced as if they were the only ones in the world, and made nerdy reference after nerdy reference–and everyone there smiled, laughed, and enjoyed it.
I know that you’re probably thinking “Well, yeah, it’s their wedding.” But…to me, it was even more special to see people that I genuinely think are some of the coolest people I’ve ever captured, in their element, surrounded by people who celebrate their unique and awesome personalities. It was, without a doubt, one of the happiest and most jovial celebrations we captured, and I have no doubt it went on for quite some time after we were finished.
Oh, but that’s not even close to all. We also made a FUSION Video of their incredible day, highlighting all the amazing, throwing in even MORE sneak peeks, and maybe even a couple video clips of their incredible day! Just click below!
Thank you again for allowing us to capture your special day, Taija & Desmond! We adore you, and your entire amazing group of family and friends!
