John and Kate are one of the most unique couples we’ve ever worked with. Kate planned their wedding for Bastille Day which, if you don’t know, is a day celebrating the national day of France (ooh la la!), and is celebrated on July 14th each year. Their love of history, whimsy, and art shined through in so many ways on their day.
The couple got married at the beautiful Sesnon House in Aptos California. Kate's dress was a work of art, with pops of turquoise and purple flowers layered on top of stark white tulle. It was obvious that a standard formal wedding dress would not have encompassed her wonderful unique style. Parasols dotted the ceremony and kept the guest cool throughout. The bride herself even carried one down the aisle ensuring she looked like a Parisian dream. They married and had their first kiss at the top steps of the historic house, a perfectly epic way to seal their marriage vows.
The grounds had an array of beautiful backdrops to take photos as well. Paired with the perfect golden hour light, these two looked like an absolute dream. The hardwood dance floor was the perfect spot for everyone to enjoy sweet first dances and bust a move with couple for the rest of the evening. We could tell that the bond between the couple and their friends and family was incredibly strong and that they were over the moon to be able to celebrate with them. We had a great time shooting this unique wedding and we wish John and Kate a happy and fun filled future together!
Kate's stunning blue and purple floral embroidered dress was one of the most unique gowns we've ever seen.
This couple has an amazing sense of humor, as evidenced by Kate's personal inside joke of a gift.
Kate looked like a dream walking down the aisle under her parasol.
A first kiss to rule them all. :)
The space was perfect for a light hearted and green outdoor reception.
The high ceilings and hardwood floor inside the Sesnon House added to the vintage charm of the day.
These two are a quirky match made in heaven. Their unique flare shined through in every moment of their day!
