Cecily and Quinn *Wedding at Nobuo at Teeter House*

Cecily and Quinn were married in a very intimate ceremony at Nobuo at Teeter House. I love it that their wedding was stripped down to the basics, but without missing any of the elements that make it meaningful and special.

I loved them and their wedding so much that because of it I have started to accept “mini-weddings” which is only three hours of coverage.

For Cecily and Quinn they drove over to the ceremony site together so since there wasn’t a first look, I started with portraits of the bride and groom. We had so much fun and as you can probably tell, I could have photographed Cecily ALL day. I’m sorry but I just had to include all of these.

After the bride and groom portraits together were finished we made our way to meet their families for all of the family portraits and I love this moment when Cecily’s father saw her as a bride for the first time:

Here’s just one of the many family portraits that were taken. Sisters always have a special place in my heart:

All of their guests right before the ceremony:

Quinn watching his bride coming down the “aisle”

Such a special and meaningful ceremony:

Immediately after the ceremony they had an intimate dinner for all of those who attended the ceremony at Nobuo and proved that simplistic decor can be just as beautiful as the more elaborate ones:

Later they had a laid back reception for their closest family and friends in Quinn’s parent’s backyard. So fun!

When I’m having a hard time choosing between too many fun pictures I just stick with the cute kids:

And just one last shot of their beautiful rings:

If you are interested in hiring me for your “mini-wedding”, please email me at cristi@cristiowen.com.
It includes the ceremony, the reception details, portraits of the bride and groom as well as family portraits and another 1.5 hours of whatever you choose (cocktail hour, first dance, cake cutting, some getting ready shots before the wedding, etc). It’s seriously the best!

Megan and Richard *Wedding at The Farm at South Mountain*

Megan and Rick got married on the hottest weekend of the year thus far. Luckily, it was at The Farm at South Mountain which has plenty of trees to provide a little shade. Besides they were both so ecstatic to be getting married that I don’t think they even noticed the warmer than usual temperature.

Her beautiful bouquets by Cactus Flower:

Her lace dress from Uptown Bridal was beautiful and perfect for this setting:

Megan looked radiant:

Adriana Fontes never disappoints with the make-up. Megan looked absolutely flawless.

The details on her dress, the flower on her hair, it all looked so dreamy:

Loved to see how happy Rick was. The grey suit and no tie look was perfect for this day!

Ceremony details:

So many emotions in this moment:

And may every couple look at each other this way as they promise their lives to each other:

Yay! Married!

Such a good looking bridal party. Love these colors together.

It was so great seeing all of these girls again. They were all bridesmaids at Roushan and Tony’s wedding. How fun is that? And how great is the belt detail on these bridesmaids dresses?! Love it! And on a sidenote, even little Arden thinks I’m hilarious :).

Can’t you see the love here:

One more of Megan just because she’s stunning:

Love this next image as they walked back to the reception site after we were all done with portraits:

Thank you Megan and Rick for allowing me to document your most perfect day.
