Renai and Justin's Wedding Day was filled with laughter, love, family, friends, and awkward hand shakes. You'll see what I mean. Regardless if they think they are not photogenic, I see something completely different. They are the cutest and sweetest couple. I love their story of how they met in grad school and have the same passion for teaching. They both are hard working and family orientated. Their love, creativity, and thoughtfulness is inspiring.
Justin was Ricky's roommate for serval years, and we went to school together. Justin was in our wedding party as well. Safe to say we know Justin pretty well. Ricky and I were both thrilled when we found out about Renai and Justin's engagement. Witnessing and capturing one of our good friend's milestones is always such an honor. They bring so much happiness to those around them and they are great friends. We couldn't be happier for them.
I started photographing their wedding at their home where Renai was getting ready. Renai looked so beautiful. Her smile and laugh is contagious.
She has a great eye for unique details. Justin and Renai's love for classic board games was a theme throughout their wedding. This is such a great ideas because it's something interactive for guests. Their ceremony took place at Holy Ghost Parish followed by their beautiful reception at The Villa. Their closest friends and family were in attendance. It was so nice to see friends from High School that I haven't seen in a long time. It was also nice to meet their families, who I fell in love with. One of my favorite pictures I took was of Justin's grandmother dancing with her great grandson. It's always my goal to capture family interactions and moments as well as the fun and sincere moments of the bride and groom.
Here are a few of my favorites from Renai and Justin's special day. It was a pleasure to capture their special day and to meet the amazing families who are the support system of this amazing couple.
Thank you Renai and Justin for having me!
