One of the greatest perks of my job is being able to create something lasting for my couples on one of the most important days of their lives. To be able to capture this day for one of my BFF’s was an honor!

Orignally, Jackie and Stevie planned on hosting a small backyard engagement party in Pasadena, CA with close friends and family present. I’d offered to take some couple photos and knew that I wanted to surprise Jackie with a wild bouquet, so I asked Brie at Pavan Floral (no relation, can you believe how perfect that is?!) in our hometown of South Pasadena to put together a wild, summer bouquet for our photo session.

48 hours after I’d ordered the bouquet, Jackie called me to reveal that she and Stevie had decided to throw a surprise wedding instead! Their celebration came together effortlessly and it was so them!

Once they both said “I do”, the festivities were in full swing. I may or may not have eaten approx 10000 tacos.
