Dorian + Rick got married on an amazing fall day…Halloween to be exact, which just so happens to be my favorite holiday! So it had to be a really special couple for me to work on this day, and there couldn’t have been a more special couple with a special reason. This was a tough one for me. Dorian + Rick were originally supposed to get married the next year, but Dorian’s dad wasn’t doing well health wise. So they moved up the wedding to make sure he could be there to celebrate such a special time in their lives. So they planned their beautiful wedding and really wanted to keep the focus on family. Dorian wanted a wedding that felt like Fall, but wasn’t Halloween themed, so she chose earthy, rich colors like emerald greens and rich oranges. This worked beautifully and really helped to give her day a warm feeling. She started the day getting ready with her sisters in her childhood home, before heading down the street to St. Stephens Church in Kearny. After a beautiful ceremony, we headed over to The Tides Estate, which is one of my very favorite venues to shoot at. Her dad gave an absolutely beautiful speech, and the night was spent celebrating this perfect couple. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day. I am honored that I was able to catch such special moments for you and your family.
