I had a wonderful time with the extended Kelly family at Cuesta Park (with grandpa and grandma visiting from Ireland!) It was a warm, relaxing afternoon, and climbing trees was fun! The kids also brought their bikes for the rolling landscape of Cuesta, which is one of the more attractive features of the park, and kids always love the speed and the challenge up and down the slopes. I also got to meet our furry friend Java too!

It was a gorgeous day for the Baker boys to spend a fun afternoon at the Rancho. The open space and the nature sceneries of this beautiful county park always help lift my spirit! And I found it worked the same for the Baker’s boys! Especially the brothers had so much fun with each other in the absence of electronic devices and screens, coming up with creative ideas to play.
One of the main reasons Gary wanted to have this photo session with his boys was because he sensed that the younger one would outgrow his brother in height any time. So he wanted to freeze that moment in time when his older one was still taller! I think that was a brilliant idea! And just how precious these memories will serve for the boys!
It was a gorgeous warm day at the beautiful wine country in Sonoma, where our lovely couple, Jamie and Leyan, a talented ballroom dancer and a Rubik's cube whiz, tied their knots. A joyful day where all their friends and relatives gathered at the breathtaking Viansa Winery to celebrate the love of these two beautiful souls.
An anecdote before the ceremony - while our groom Leyan was eagerly waiting, and waiting, and waiting in the courtyard for the first look of his beautiful wife-to-be, all the bridesmaids and our bride were frantically searching inside the bridal room for the earrings Jamie were supposed to wear. Luckily there were a backup pair, and the original pair was finally found later in the day. It was one of those moments where 'little' things happen to make the day even more memorable!
Although the guests did not get to watch Leyan play the Rubik's cube, they had the privilege to watch some lovely ballroom dances this night! And they were so professional!
My heartfelt wishes to this smart and lovely newlyweds an amazing journey in their new road ahead!
And lastly, a big thank you to our wonderful Heidi Sandoval for rocking this wedding with me again!
