Amanda + Sai // A Beautiful, Unconventional San Martin Wedding
Amanda and Sai are such beautiful, adorable, kindhearted, unique people and I am going to remember their wedding day forever.
Their wedding day took place on a sunny late-summer day on a beautiful property in the middle of the golden San Martin hills. Their guests arrived, and everyone looked like they were dressed straight out of a magazine. I’m telling you, b e a u t i f u l people.
Amanda and Sai were full of anxious anticipation, and I could tell right away how much of themselves they had put into this day; their personalities were woven through every bit of the decor, their wedding attire, and all the day’s events.
Their ceremony was one of the most unique and thoughtful I’ve ever seen. Amanda and Sai decided that instead of a traditional wedding ceremony, they just wanted to play their favorite song and sway together, basking in all the love of their friends and family and the joy of that moment. I loved that they threw tradition out the window and did something so uniquely them, because that’s the very best thing my couples can do. That’s what makes a wedding special.
The reception was a riot—with the guests truly going all out on the dance floor, hugging and singing and head-banging the night away. Sai was the DJ, Amanda wore a dress woven with fiber optic lights, and they partied in a circle pit with all their dearest people. It was so much fun, and I danced along with them as I snapped my camera.
Amanda and Sai, I’m so glad you chose me to capture your wedding day. It was a celebration I will never forget. To my second shooter, Jess, thank you so much for assisting me that day and helping me to create these beautiful memories. You’re the best.
