I met Ryan and Lauren together in a Starbucks in Cupertino after she inquired about my services. I was excited to meet them and talk to them about their big day! When they chose me I was thrilled!
After their engagement photos at a park in Cupertino, the countdown began for the big day! Even though I moved away to Sacramento, it didn’t matter since I do weddings all over California 🙂
Before the wedding, she had set out to get in shape for the wedding. Usually this means, go to the gym a few times, get tone, etc, etc. But Lauren dedicated herself – and lost an amazing 70 pounds!! She looks amazing but not only that, she has more energy and her health is imporoved! I was so proud of her and it was such an awesome sight for family and friends that haven’t seen her in a while! That was a grand reveal for sure!
Ryan and Lauren are truly meant for each other. They balance each other out so well and they realize this – Ryan is the gentle soul and she is the social go-getter. I always believe that opposites do attract because two opposites make a complete whole and it just works together. In marriage, you need strengths to fill the other’s weaknesses…and vise versa. Once you realize this, you can have compassion on each others weakness and fall in love even more.
It’s just like a company needing different employees with different strengths. If all employees were the same robot of a person, there would be something missing.
I loved their details and how they arranged everything at Los Gatos Lodge. The food was great and the staff were very kind and accomodating.
I just adored the candids I captured from this wedding. So sweet. Their family is so tight knit.
Enjoy these images and huge thanks to the vendors a part of this wedding!
