Irvine Wedding Photography | Kate and Chris are Married!

Dear Kate and Chris,

Being chosen as your wedding photographers was something I don’t think we’ll truly ever be able to express fully, but to say that it was one of the biggest honors we have yet to receive in our careers… might just get us in the ball park. We say this not because of how gorgeous your day was (and it really was, you both did an AMAZING job), or because of how stunning your dress was Kate (your first look said it all), or even because Chris rocked that charcoal tux like no one else ever could (seriously fellas, don’t even try). We say that because it was you two, Chris and Kate, two of our dear friends joining their lives together. Having the joy of watching you plan this day since you were first engaged, growing in our friendships along the way, to now see your wedding through our lenses and be next to you both throughout the day was something we will never forget. We know every single one of your guests would echo this; we are blessed to have you in our lives and can think of no two people better designed for one another than you two. Having a little head start on you both on the journey of marriage, we can tell you it’s a gift that only gets better and better. You’re a team now, don’t sweat the small stuff, and always have each other’s back; we know He’s going to use you both to do amazing things. It’s with great joy (and some happy tears) that we share with you some of our favorite moments from your day.

Love,

Gavin and Erin

**For all of you brides out there dying to know about all these amazing details, this was entirely a “Do it Yourself” wedding. In all of her creativity, and being an awesome wedding photographer herself, Kate uniquely designed her day and really made her and Chris’ style shine through in every detail. Along with the help of her family, friends, and family at Irvine Presbyterian Church, this day was made possible. Seeing such a large group of people rally together was truly a testimony to who these two are, and it couldn’t have been more perfect!**

Amazing! I got teary-eyed looking at these pictures… You both captured it perfectly. I was reliving each of those moments as if I were there again.
Thank you Gavin and Erin!
