grace & christian | romantic southern california wedding

i’m so excited to share grace & christian’s wedding with you!! i absolutely loved being a part of their wedding day, not only because of how caring they are as individuals and as a couple, but because their longstanding friendships were a reminder to me of my own. christian and grace met in high school, but it wasn’t until senior year that they started dating (they’re high-school sweethearts!). ten years after the days when grace used to pass notes to christian in their econ/government class, christian proposed. it was really sweet to see their lifelong friends share memories of their lives together at their wedding, and i knew they were a couple after my own heart when during their toasts, grace’s bridesmaids shared excerpts from her high school journal where she wrote that christian was “the one.”

the party went on into the night and concluded with a fun sparkler exit, which was perfect for their wedding on independence day! it was such an honor to share their day with them!
