June 9th, 2020: The First Wedding of the Year! What?!

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a year like no other and one of the most unusual things for those of us in the event industry is that we haven’t been working AT ALL! But… if we had to wait that long, at least we got to ring in the year with the SWEETEST couple!

Last year, I had the privilege of photographing Lannie and Logan’s engagement portraits and wedding. This year, they’re expanding their family with the addition of their first daughter, Aylin Senna.

Just in time for the spookiest day of all, Jamie & Brad celebrated their wedding this past weekend with a Halloween themed reception at Meadowview Convention Center & Resort . This bride loves the Halloween season so, after a proposal during Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, it was only fitting that they plan an epic costume party for their wedding reception!
