Kirsten & Stephen's Wedding

This beautiful bride & I have known each other for more than half of our lives. I love her & her family!! It was such an honor to be able to capture her special day. They said "I do" on the central coast of California in Pismo Beach. The quiet, cliff lined beach was a beautiful & dramatic backdrop for the Wedding, as well as a great spot to watch seals, dolphins & sunsets. It's no wonder it is one of Kirsten & Stephen's favorite places to go. They had two different ceremonies, a traditional one & a Korean one, honoring Stephen's heritage. During the Korean ceremony, Kirsten & Stephen served tea to different family members & in turn, they gave the new couple their well wishes for a good life. Then, they tossed dates at them to catch. The number of dates they caught meant that many children! The new Mr. & Mrs. also shared a date & whoever ended up with the pit in their mouth was said to hold the control of the finances. Kirsten had the pit. It made me think "the man is the head, but the woman is the neck & she can turn the head any way she wants." Haha! Kirsten & Stephen, thank you for allowing me to capture these moments for you. I wish you so much happiness, love & a long life together!!
