On a rainy Friday afternoon in May at the beautiful St. Peter's Catholic Church in Fullerton, a couple tied the knot. The setting was small and intimate, just as Rebecca and Doug had wished. As they held hands and repeated their vows, Rebecca's daughter, Aubrey watched from the pew, a smile on her face.
Rebecca, who is a nurse, and Doug, a farmer, met through a a blind date. A close family friend of the bride's knew the groom and thought that they would be perfect together. She was right. Within time, love blossomed, and the two were engaged. They knew exactly what kind of day they wished for and went to work executing it perfectly. Rather than having a wedding party, Rebecca and Doug opted for simplicity. Their mothers joined them during the ceremony, happily participating as their witnesses. The touches that Rebecca added to her day were elegant and timeless - yellow and ivory roses, pearls and lace, a bit of blue and a penny in her shoe for good luck. Their reception was held at the parish hall of St. Rose of Lima in Genoa and featured exquisitely decorated cupcakes, spontaneous singing and dancing, and much laughter. All in all, it was a perfect day, as unique and lovely as the couple. We were honored to photograph it and wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness together.
