Zak and Kellie's Wedding!

So... It's been a while. And when I say a while, I mean over a year. I have totally fallen off the blog wagon, and the only reason I'm back is to post some photos of my fabulous friends who were just married Sunday. :)

Allow me to introduce... Zak and Kellie! I was so honored to be a part of their day. Zak and Casey were close friends from college, and the three of us would hang out whenever he was in town. So naturally, I was so excited to meet Kellie. And she. is. AMAZING.

The day began at Alex's Beauty Bar in Isla Vista, where Kellie and the girls spent the morning getting ready.

Kellie's bridesmaids had these gorgeous metallic sandals. Naturally, I am drawn to sparkly things, so... Picture!

Kellie's bouquet... with hydrangeas! My fav.

Zak and Kellie had a really amazing orthodox wedding at St. Athanasius in IV. It was only the second orthodox wedding I've ever shot, and I loved it. Everything was so infused with meaning and beautiful.

Loved this moment of Kellie and Zak exchanging looks as they circle the altar.

Driving from the church to the reception on the beach was definitely a lot of fun. Zak drove while Kellie sat in the backseat, apparently because she needed to stretch out. So I rode in the front, feeling a tad awkward. :) People kept asking why Kellie wasn't in the front seat! Here's my view...

Zak could not keep his eyes of his beautiful bride, however. I loved the glances he kept stealing in the rearview mirror. :)

The whole gang outside the reception!

Kellie and her fabulous gals...

Kellie and her mom getting kisses! Love this one.

When they arrived at the reception, everyone was so happy to see them.

First dance..

Love this moment with Zak and his mom during their dance...

And instead of a cake, they had a fruit tart, which was gorgeous and yummy.

How cute are they?

And their grand exit surrounded by bubbles!

Zak and Kellie, thank you so much for your friendship and for trusting me with your pictures. Your wedding was so beautiful and Case and I can't wait to share life with you when you return. Have a blast in Costa Rica!
