It’s not often that your best friend becomes your sister-in-law. Annie and Mel’s intimate Napa Valley wedding was many years in the making. Mel’s baby sister, Yen, has been Annie’s best friend since beyond high school. So, naturally, Annie and Mel were destined to end up together.There’s something so sweet about high school sweethearts enduring the crazy transitional years of college, and finally ending up happily ever after.
With Annie’s super crafty talents and organization skills, I was excited to shoot her wedding because I knew her day would be perfectly executed with amazing personal touches. She designed their fabulous invitations and even sewed the ring bearer’s pillow herself!
Annie’s other BFF and bridesmaid, My Tran, did a fabulous job with Annie’s makeup.
Annie drew her invitations herself and scanned them into her computer to make these adorable invites.
If I could do my wedding all over again, I’d choose a dress like this gorgeous frock with cascading ruffles. LOVE.
Annie & Mel, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day! I loved every single minute of it.
