Stevie + Daemeth's Wedding: Wayfarer's Chapel in Palos Verdes Estates

southern california romantic wedding

The unexpected is what usually brings the unbelievable and this was exactly the case for Stevie + Daemeth's love story.  The two met at their local crossfit gym and were immediately drawn towards each other.  The second they started dating, they knew--he knew she was her soulmate, and he was hers. 

As their friends and family gathered around them, with their children literally clinging to their legs, Stevie + Daemeth promised to stay true and holds hands as they age.  As husband and wife, they promised eternity and a day in their vows and sealed their commitment with a kiss. 

Stevie and Daemeth, thank you for giving me the opportunity to capture so many powerful moments.  It's evident that you both give to others and care beyond yourselves but it was so beautiful to witness you two surrounded by the power of love on your wedding day.  I can't wait to see what the future holds for people as amazing as the two of you. 

I absolutely love photographing at the Wayfarer's Chapel.  The glass windows are to DIE for.

The bride and groom had no problem seeing each other prior to the ceremony which was great for me because it meant more time for couple portraits.  We took a few intimate photos here away from the crowd.  Love this black and white photo of the two.
