Kim + Pat || Addison Park Weddings

While some couples end their wedding ceremonies with a kiss, others jump over brooms, and still others, well, take it a step further… Pat + Kim surprised their guests in a very classic and remarkable way. Upon being announced husband + wife, a group of white homing pigeons were released from the altar, setting up a truly picture perfect shot to cap off their ceremony.

We were so thankful the weather held out for their wedding. The rainy forecast was miraculously replaced by very favorable weather— a gentle mix of clouds and sun. Pat and Kim were such great sports on their wedding day, taking every thing in stride. With a thoroughly packed schedule, we were grateful that they planned enough time for portraits in and around the venue property. Save for the portraits, our couple didn’t want to be the focus of the spotlight, so the rest of the day was spent doing what they wanted— sharing in celebration with their loved ones.

Congratulations to Pat + Kim on their wedding!


NaDea + Daniel || Addison Park Weddings

NaDea and Daniel’s wedding celebration was a long time coming. This spectacular couple was so well planned, organized and on top of all their email communications, we thought we were dealing with industry pros, not newlyweds.

Just one year earlier, we met up with this couple for their engagement session at Longwood Garden. A vibrant, down-to-earth couple who also happen to share the love for good food, we got a bit too excited when we heard about their honeymoon plans to Hawaii… So of course, we wrote them a giant email that included all of the local food recommendations on the island of Oahu that we wanted them to experience!

Regarding their wedding day, we had a truly wonderful time documenting their late September wedding extravaganza. The weather just as perfect as we had hoped– a healthy dose of sunshine, a little bit of clouds, and enough of the September breeze to keep us all comfortable. This was also our first time at stunning Addison Park, and the wedding venue certainly lived up to it’s reputation. We loved the effortless blending of their Chinese & American backgrounds, which included a surprise Lion Dance performance, and a very american (but lesser seen) broom jumping tradition at the end of the wedding ceremony. The dancing & speeches portion of the reception was so full of energy, we wish the party was extended for another couple of hours.

A very special + honorable mention goes out to the lovely wedding coordinator Carla of Details Made Simple. Without her professional guidance + wisdom on the day of, we really wouldn’t have had such a memorable wedding experience.

Thank you both for having us at your wedding day, and we wish you two the very best in your new lives together!
