Shannon & Anthony's Wedding in San Diego


it seems like it was just last week when we did shannon and tony's engagement session. actually, that session was way back in november. this year is flying by. it was so nice seeing shannon and tony again. they are such a sweet couple and two of the nicest people on the planet.
i love their smiles here. they show just how truly in love they are.




lets back up a little to a time known as pre-ceremony.




love the shoes!







after seeing shannon at her engagement session i didn't think she could be any happier. then i saw her in her wedding dress.




shannon and tony have surrounded themselves with wonderful, gorgeous people. everyone in these next two shots made us all feel like family. thank you all.




honestly, i could not have asked for a nicer group. as an added bonus, these hilarious guys had us laughing all day. i love laughing while i work. it makes work less worky.




i'm not sure whether to file this under something old or borrowed or just plain awesome. shannon had this old prayer book to offer her blessings on her wedding day.







i love the fact that every time i saw tony and shannon looking at each other that had ear to ear smiles.




BUBBLES!




The Thursday Club was decorated to the nines and Events by Christopher served up some delicious catering.




shannon and tony put a little spin on the traditional wedding cake. different flavor cakes were spread out, one per table, and guests were encouraged to visit other tables to sample them all.




when shannon and tony ducked into the booth by PhotoBoothNOW to serve up some CHEESE I couldn't help but to take a shot of my own.




insert your own caption here.




luckily we had our backpacks with us because shannon took us to school.
DOMO AREGATO.




is this just the cutest smile ever? she was so adorable.




Disco Friend Daniel was on the ones and twos and did an awesome job at keeping the floor packed all night. tony tried to sit one out, but shannon wasn't havin' that.




happily in each others arms, shannon and tony stole the spotlight in all it's yellow majesty. THAT'S AMORE!




you didn't hink we'd forget the rings did you?
we had a little help from the fab four on this one. thanks lads.




shield your eyes kids.
kim had this idea and asked me to take this shot for the ladies.
i may have looked a little funny taking it up close with my macro, but are those some good looking balls or what.




mahalo shannon and tony for being one of the sweetest couples we have ever worked with. we are so happy for you both. have a wonderful life together.





shannon and tony might possibly be the luckiest.
watch the slideshow below and see for yourself.






and thanks for our best friend in the whole wide world (no not patrick, or the big peanut guy) alyssa for coming out and shooting with us!

Yahooo!!! I'm the first!! Ok first off how beautiful is she?! Oh my goodness. Undoubtedly adore the first 5 images! WOW! I just love her smile in the shot with her veil, and as always your details are amazing, that bibie, wowwee! The bubbles shot and the shot of her pointing on the dance floor are just soooo fun! I love them!

linda said...

In true Ohana form you ROCKED the ROCK!!!! I didn't think you could out due that "moon" shot or even the Beatles one, you kicked the ring shot in the 8#!!$
The last shot has L-O-V-E written all over it. Crazy about this wedding!!

I think this is the happiest couple I've ever seen!!! Beautiful pictures you guys! Really beautiful! Congrats!

Tiffany Rushforth Photography said...

WOW!! These shots are just AMAZING!!

Josh said...

Is it me or do bubbles make everyone happy? You can't have bubbles around with a smile on your face.

Cathy Crawley said...

Nice balls indeed! So the girls making the bull horns is funny, but the Adam Sandler look alike staring at one girls butt is priceless! Love your work! ;)

tisha said...

Beautiful pictures!!! Kim knows how to pick good balls. Great ring shot!!

Christopher said...

I have so many things to say, I am not sure where to start. First, cool new banner. Love the "Climbers". 2, love the "horn" shot. I just laughed at the one. And the Balls, well, I had to make sure the kids weren't around when that came across the screen.

Very fun stuff.

melissa McClure said...

Love the first image and the dress in the window shot- a great new way to take the standards. Love that!

rachel said...

I never get enough of your unique and not the "norm" (cheesy boring) pictures! You always come up with different shots and none of your weddings look the same! ALways a treat! Seriously rocked this badboy! Of course they are gorgeous, that is always a bonus.

shannon & tony said...

Hi David!

Tony and I are back from our honeymoon (but still struggling to adjust to the 15 hr time difference). We absolutely love the pictures -- seriously, they are amazing. We had so much fun at our wedding that it's hard to remember the smaller moments, but then we look at your pics and think, oh yeah, I remember that! My girlfriends and I have replayed the slide show a few times too many, but still love it. We were happy that you guys decided to stay until the end and catch us in our sweaty, blue-table ribbon glory! I hope you had fun too!

Sincerely,
Shannon

delia said...

I love your unique and different style! These are amazing! Is she gorgeous or what?! Love every image, especially that last one!! WOW!
