Antique Book Themed Wedding|Mr. and Mrs. Livingston



On August 27, 2016, Ryan and Dana promised to spend their lives together. They had already exchanged beautiful gifts to each other the night before, but Dana had one more surprise... She had been journaling their engagement for fifteen months and that morning she gifted her groom with a beautiful book full of memories!


The traditional catholic ceremony was held in St. Joseph Cathedral. This amazing gothic revival building was a perfect way for Dana and Ryan to start their married lives together. Dana was so happy that her grandfather was able to see her marry the love of her life! I loved that we were able to preserve this precious moment for them.


Templeton Landing was gorgeous as always! The staff and management was phenomenal as was the food. Mr. and Mrs. Livingston cut their cake and were treated to a beautiful speech by the best man and a blessing by their Aunt. After dinner and emotional first dance, Dana's sister and Maid of honor treated everyone to a hilarious and beautifully done medley of hip-hop songs with lyrics changed to represent Dana and Ryan's life together! 

There were so many sweet traditions and original details strewn throughout the day. Dana and Ryan had reminders of loved ones past and present in so many ways. The  antique book decor was an amazing way to add their personalities into what was a perfect day. I was so happy that everything went smoothly for these two!


Ryan and Dana, I can't begin to tell you what an absolute joy it was to get to know you and capture this beautiful moment in time for both of you. I wish you happiness and a long life!
