new life church

Isaac + Yami

What a fun day this was! I had met Isaac at Best Buy some years back as we both worked there. Next thing you know (several years later), I get asked to photograph their special day. Of course I said yes!

Isaac & Yami started off the day cozy by getting ready "in-home". We then moved down to Faith Assembly Church (my own home church) for the wedding party and family portraits as that was an easy to find and close location for all of us. Blankspace was their ceremony venue of choice for a small and intimate ceremony. It was so sweet! Isaac & Yami were just the sweetest.

For the reception, we headed to Isaac & Yami's home church, New Life Church and finished their celebration there. They had yummy Mexican-style food by Fiesta Catering and many fun activities. Namely, one that raised them over $700 in cash on the spot! So they had a boys versus girls competition where guests would bring out cash and the teams competed to find and grab the most cash. What a hoot! In the end, the boys found more money and so the girls had to dance the Macarena as punishment. So fun!

After some delicious cake, it was time to go! Just outside the church, Isaac & Yami had their grand exit. Not sure what happened to the sparklers idea we had mentioned in our planning, but I remember being asked right before if phone flashes would work for this exit. I had never even thought of this, but I knew we could make it work! So, we did just that! Everyone then lined up and turned on their phone flashes and BOOM. Magic. It totally worked out great!

So happy for my friends! Congrats, Isaac & Yami!

Special thanks to Esther for second shooting for me!
