I love a gal who makes a list and keeps shopping until she finds it! Angela spent tons of time shopping Etsy for the perfect details for her and Ivan's wedding day. She even found the gorgeous wrap that matched her dress perfectly and added so much flair to her strapless gown.
Portraits were very important to Ivan and Angela. When we met for our engagement session last year, they brought props and a list of ideas. For their wedding they opted to do a "first look" where Angela tapped him on the shoulder so they could have photos of them seeing each other for the first time. They also scheduled in enough time for us to take a leisurely walk through downtown St. Augustine making some really beautiful images.
Their ceremony and reception was held at the ever gorgeous and intimate Tasting Room. Being able to have your favorite restaurant close their doors and hold a private party just for you is such a great way to celebrate your wedding!
They also incorporated Angela's Korean heritage into their ceremony with the tradition of the groom giving the bride's mother a set of wooden geese. This symbolizes his devotion to her daughter since geese mate for life. Angela also gave chestnuts to Ivan's mother symbolizing the number of children they would have which made everyone laughed when Angela suggested she take a few out of the box. :O)
We also got to debut our awesome new photo booth at their wedding. But stay tuned for a post on just this nifty new feature to our studio!
