Lillian and Sean had a beautiful and classy wedding on a small Manor in Angwin. If you’re like me and haven’t heard of this town before, its a small town North of Napa. The manor is owned by a man who rents his home out to couples looking for a venue. It’s perfect. The hedges were perfectly trimmed with colorful flowers all around the property. The grass was the prettiest shade of green and the trees had lanterns hanging from them around the walkways. I couldn’t have imagined a spot more in tune with Lillian and Sean. It was like it was made for them. The majority of their guests had flown in from New York. They were embraced with love from across the country. I really adore Lillian and Sean. They are fun, sweet and oh so easy in front of my camera. LOVE! I loved the back of Lillians dress. Modern and classy. I LOVE this photo. One of my favorites.Look at How beautiful she looks. My camera loved her

On August 6th 2011, Adam and I arrived at the Latter-Day Saints Temple in Oakland. As we waited outside the doors of the temple, we looked around while photographers and other family members were all waiting for the same thing; their bride and groom to exit the doors as a happily married couple. Only a select few are allowed to be inside the actual temple and watch as couples get married. So Adam and I, Janice and Richard’s closest friends and family waited outside with excitement along with the family and friends of 16 other brides-to-be that day.
The temple is astonishing. It’s huge! As a little girl, my family would drive past the temple on the freeway and I remember always thinking it was a castle. It’s not any smaller now than the way I remembered it. On that day it was still is a castle and Janice was the princess that became Richard’s queen.
What a sweet fairytale.
After the portraits at the temple everyone drove to the reception site to watch a ring ceremony be performed for the family and friends that were not able to witness it inside the temple.
