jon + stephanie: love abound + a parade of succulents at the colony house, anaheim california

Weddings & Engagement
May 22, 2017

stephanie + jonathan are the easy going, fun couple that loves nothing more than a fun day at disneyland + maybe spending time outdoors with their dogs. Their engagement session, as you may remember, featured the latter.

for their wedding day they chose romantic details swirled in succulents at the colony house in anaheim, California. the venue is crisp + lovely with minimal details, a great cocktail space with big open windows, the most amazing yellow couch + a giant succulent wall on the outdoor patio. The setting was filled with lush details in rustic tones + greenery all around – props to jenifer at Klink Events!

they opted for a first look behind the succulent wall, bridal party photos in the same spot as well as upstairs by the bar + the ceremony took place at St. Norbert’s Catholic Church. we did some romantic sunset photos around the grounds and outside of the colony house and finished the night off with dancing + merriment for all.

idk. all good things with this one.

Surrounded by Flowers + Love: Dallas Anniversary Arboretum Shoot
These two were engaged six years to the day of this session at the Arboretum in Dallas, Texas. It was particularly sweet to capture photos at the water fountain where he got down on one knee as she silently stood, shaking in sheer delight until she agreed :) I sat across from the fountain and just let them get lost in this moment of reflection- it is my favorite shot of the collection. Sadly, not a ton of flowers were in bloom earlier this month when we went but we did manage to utilize the gorgeous patches of yellow tulips. They have a vast array of locations and it was fun to wander the grounds and explore. Just as they say, everyt ...
