Kelly & Renrick’s Wedding

I’m so excited to finally blog about Kelly and Renk’s wedding. Mainly because their day was tons of fun, touching on so many levels; full of love, tears, and laughter. I also always see Kelly in SUPER planner mode so it was a change in scenery to see her as the bride for once and she makes one BEAUTIFUL bride. It really shows how much Kelly and Renk do for their family and friends and how much those people do in return to show their love and appreciation for them on their special day. I laughed along, dropped a few tears and captured the love that was on display with this special couple. They are so genuinely kind and truly good at heart–I am very blessed to have shared in their day and especially to call them friends. Can’t wait to see their love and family grow in the coming years. Congrats you guys!!!

Kelly’s Maggie Sottero gown was gorgeous!! Layers galore.The bridesmaids had personalized hangers and the groomsmen had matching sneakers.

Can you tell how excited Kelly was that morning??Gorgeous hair and make-up for Kelly by Katie B.

They opted to have their first look at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
It may have rained that morning but things cleared up for them perfectly!A match made in love heaven.I absolutely LOVE these 2 shots.

We had a bit of fun with Kelly’s veil.

Their silhouettes fit perfectly in this wooden doorway.Isn’t Kelly such a cute bride??Anthony of Alumiq had them act out a few funny scenes for a videoclip.These shots of them walking along feel so natural.

Alumiq having a bit more fun with the wedding party as we shot along.Their ceremony was held at St Callistus Catholic Church.The natural lighting in the church cannot be rivaled–its perfect.


After the ceremony we headed to Mon Cheri Restaurant to get the celebration started.These fondant pandas are too cute–cake/pandas made by INTRICAKES.

The wedding party had quite the energetic entrance. Kelly was totally getting down.

Sibling love on full display. Kelly’s siblings put on an EPIC surprise performance.
Kelly cheered, cried and laughed all at once out of sheer joy.

Best blog I’ve read, Thaoie. It was perfectly written. Hair, makeup, dress… Kelly looked absolutely beautiful. Props to Katie B. You and Duy did an incredible job on sharing their special day with the rest of us. Kelly’s detailed planning on every aspect was exquisite, fun and inspiring.. That’s why she’s one of the best!
