Brian and Karolina have the most romantic how-we-met story I have ever heard! Getting to know them before the wedding, I was just melting listening to how they fell in love. Out of all the places in the world, these two met in the city of Love itself, Paris 🙂 Meeting a different country, a totally different continent, these two were crazy about each other from the second they shook hands! A year after that fateful trip, they united their lives together as one in a stunning blush and pink wedding in sunny Sacramento, CA. I loved the little details in decor from their travels in Paris, Karolina even had a little mirrored compact with an eiffel tower on it… this girl was the perfect bride to photograph! Mind-blowing gorgeous, silly and bubbly, she was totally herself in front of the camera, and I really couldn’t have asked for more 😀 Brian was so smitten with his beautiful bride, I was holding back tears myself seeing his reaction as Karolina walked down the isle… the entire wedding day held at the Croation American Culteral Center was an amazing success to say the least! A separate post of their second day shoot is coming next, so stay tuned 🙂 Thank you so much to Paul Lyubezhanin with Aperina Studios for second shooting with me, your a rockstar!

 

12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, 4 flower girls, 2 ring bearers, it was quite a party!

A few minutes during the reception using up the last few minutes of light.. love these portraits!
