One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Our wedding was romantic, colorful, relaxed—and even better than we had ever dared to dream it could be.

Other cool stuff we should know about: We had a very small and personal wedding of about twenty people. The intimacy of the ceremony was so special. Everyone contributed to help make our wedding more amazing than we could have ever imagined. Saying our vows to each other and exchanging rings was an incredible moment! We stood by this amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and McWay Falls, with the afternoon sun shinning on us, surrounded by our families, and filled with so much love!

    Christina Richards was my wedding photographer too! She is so amazing. She seemed to capture the joy so well. What a special wedding. My favorite shot is of the bride and groom with their foreheads against each other.

    Congrats!

    It’s so wonderful to see an interracial wedding in Wordless Weddings. While APW has posted about the topic before (e.g. Sam and Eric’s wordless wedding posted Nov 28, 2011, as well as other combinations such as, inter-faith pairings, international pairings, etc.), I’ve otherwise (re: outside of APW) found it challenging to find photos and reflections, from interracial couples within the U.S. While the interracial element doesn’t necessarily define a couple, as someone in an interracial relationship, it’s great to see similar partnerships represented here. Thanks Dana and Kris, and APW!

    You can totally see the passion this couple has for each other and their friends and family. The expressions on the bride’s face is priceless, you can feel her excitement throughout the photos!
