michelle and paul's wedding

commentator: monica

when you've got a gorgeous and laid-back couple like michelle & paul, it's so very easy and enjoyable to photograph a wedding! self-proclaimed hawaii-lovers, they celebrated their union on a beautiful saturday this month with a tropical-inspired wedding theme. we met up with michelle at her suite where she and her bridesmaids "glammed up" at the hilton garden inn in fairfield.

the ceremony was held at saint basil's in vallejo, which is only a block away from the high school where the two graduated from. paul and his guys were already at the church once we arrived, which gave us ample time for their photographs. and boy, do these guys love to pose for the camera! =)

on the way to the reception, the bridal party stopped at the suisun city waterfront, which is a great historical site for photographs. lucky for us, there was a congo drum player who happily provided some ambient music for us to enjoy. afterwards, we arrived at the reception held at the delta breeze club on travis airforce base. with great food, drinks, and entertainment, their party allowed everyone to enjoy themselves and "let their hair down," literally and figurately. =)

congratulations on your marriage, michelle & paul! mahalo for letting us capture your special day!

Behind the Scenes

ok... this is actually funny. see, mich and paul had their wedding in a military base and the guards had this list that contained names of all their guests and vendors. we knew for a fact that jeff, my brother, wasn't on the list. so what we decided to do was to sneak him in the base by hiding him in the back of our trusty honda pilot under blankets. it was HILARIOUS!

Amazing work, Ed. I love the one with the boy poking his head over the pew during prayer! And you are the 'group formals' master :)

I'm reporting you to the military officials. Watch out Jeff ! You and Monica are accomplices so yall better watch out too! I remember Michelle! Great photos! Looks like a fun wedding!

The pictures are beautiful!! I actually cried more looking at the photos - and that's not even the complete set!- than I did at the actual wedding...

Oh, that boy poking his head over the pew is our baby, Roan. Mich's nephew. The same boy being carried during the garter toss who looks so much like he's actually trying to catch it! Thank God he didn't, but our middle son, Alex, did. Having three boys, I guess it's bound to happen one day...

Awesome work!
