we had the lovely honor of photographing yet another set of high school sweethearts. angelique & mike were wed at the union baptist church in vallejo. as typically so for a wedding, the guys were prepped well before the ceremony start time and the ladies... well, of course it always takes longer than expected to get "beautified." believe me, the results were well worth it!
as we waited for the bride and her maids to arrive, we had the opportunity to shoot around the church with the guys. lucky for us, there were quite a few younger guys in this group, who were very willing to ham it up for the camera.
after the ceremony, ed rode with the adorable newlyweds in their limo, provided by k s limo service, to suisun city's historic waterfront (which is only about 15 minutes from our home and oddly, we never knew even existed!) for a quick bride & groom photo session before heading over to the the nelson community center for their reception. their families sure know how to party!
congratulations, angelique & mike! we hope you both are having an incredibly relaxing honeymoon on the islands!!!
