"Love is the 'why' of life, why we are functioning at all.
I am convinced it is the fundamental energy of the human spirit,
the fuel of which we run, the wellspring of our vitality."
This, this couldn't be more true for Kat and Drew.
What an incredibly genuine, loving, accepting and open couple.
I spoke to Kat multiple times over the phone, months, weeks and even days leading up to their wedding.
Each interaction with Kat, was done so with so much grace, passion, love and soul.
I always hung up my phone with a huge smile on my face.
This, led to meeting her and Drew in person on their wedding day.
I arrived frist, to Drew's hotel room, stayed for sometime while photographing his getting ready and learning all that I could about their meeting, their experiences, their union, their honeymoon and life in general.
As I was leaving Drew's room, walking towards Kat's room, I received a call, " I think he's a bit nervous..."
I had a small giggle, I said, "He is perfectly fine, photos are already done and he's just so excited to marry you."
Seeing Kat, was like reuniting with an old friend. I immediately walked in, hugged her and began doing my thing.
The rest of the day, well, it was that peacefully beautiful.
Each moment and interaction within, was filled with so much love and excitement.
Before we knew it, the time had come for her to walk down the aisle and see her just-moments-away, husband.
Their smiles, couldn't have been brighter, their love, couldn't have screamed any louder!
The ceremony took place at Lorimar Winery in Temecula, California,
just as the sun was starting to set, vineyards in the background, their loved ones just on the other side.
The night, continued on just as the day.
As you can see by their romantic portraits, these two are the perfect compliments for one another!
Thank you, Kat & Drew
for creating the space for me to be such an intimate part of your wedding day. It was an absolute honor.
Thank you to Riley Brianna for Kat's hair and makeup, Cherish Floral Design for the beautiful flowers and James with Last Dance Entertainment for one of the best DJ/ MC sessions I've seen!
