Katelyn & Lauren’s downtown San Jose Hotel De Anza wedding transported you into a secret garden filled with hundreds of fragrant blooms in vibrant red, pink, and white. Add in gold accents, the calming sound of an indoor fountain, the soft flicker of candle light, and an epic cupcake tower and you would swear you were in a beautiful dream!
How She Asked: Fate brought Katelyn and Lauren back together after life dealt Katelyn a rather rough hand with the loss of a close family member. At the same time, the pair, who had previously broken up a short time before, realized that they truly did love each other and wanted one another in their lives. After rekindling their relationship, they moved in together. Six months later, Katelyn and Lauren were on a road trip back to California from Washington. They were taking the scenic coastal route and stopped in Crescent City. They decided to go stretch their legs and soak in the beach views, but Katelyn knew something was up. Nervous Lauren was pacing back and forth as they approached the beach. She then blurted out “Alright, I need to do this now or else I’m not going to be able to!” and asked for Katelyn to marry her. Katelyn of course said yes!
To Katelyn and Lauren: Thank you so, so much for allowing me to be a part of your magical wedding day. I had an absolute blast with you two- that was seriously the most fun I’ve had at a wedding in a very long time! Both of you have such amazing beauty both inside and out, and were so incredibly welcoming and warm with me. It really made my job that much easier because it felt like I was photographing lifelong friends! Katelyn I won’t forget how sweet your vows were to Lauren. I couldn’t help but tear up a little during your ceremony! And then there was that cake smash. Haha! Poor Lauren is probably still getting the smell of sweet frosting off of her. And Lauren, talk about the most epic First Look ever! Your reaction was the sweetest reaction I’ve ever witnessed. I’m very lucky to have been the one to capture that priceless moment for you two! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you two. I just know it’s going to hold so much love and happiness. Congrats again on finding your wifey for lifey!
