Katie and John : Wedding

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
atie and John are two of the sweetest, kindest, and genuine people one could ever meet, and these two beautiful souls married this past weekend. They are a truly amazing match and perfect for each other! JD—accompanied by our good friend and fabulous photographer Amelia Lyon--photographed the wedding and they did an amazing job!

Tucked away in a beautiful church in the Los Angeles, Katie and John promised their lives to each other surrounded by their closest family and friends. The day flowed beautifully thanks to Uyen Nguyen of Sassy Girl Weddings and as the evening came to a close, everyone knew Katie and John were destined for a happily ever after…

Here are a few of my favorites...

JD went straight to the church to catch up with John's pre-ceremony massage...

Amelia went and captured Katie getting ready at The Standard Hotel...and later caught up with John and Katie's First Look...

JD captured some beautiful moments between the couple...

This was my most favorite shot of the day...JD was rockin' it! :)

Here are a few more of Amelia's timeless photographs...

I love JD's series of the first kiss...

While JD was capturing this shot....

Amelia caught this!

I was so happy to see that Katie had painted a picture from their engagement session...what an honor! :)

Amelia got this shot...

...while JD got this one a few seconds later...

**On a sidenote—and I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place for the following comments—I need to publicly thank JD for being the best business partner, husband, and, most importantly, friend. This was his first wedding on his own and although we’re quite sure we’ll be shooting our weddings together, I have to say how proud I am of him. He amazes me.**
