It’s been an exciting start to the new year as I was honored to have two weddings featured in two great magazines just in the last week. The first I blogged last week, and the second is this beautiful spread in C Weddings magazine, which I’m finally able to share today! It was a stunning, perfect day and though it was a bit drizzly early in the day (yes, in July!) nothing could put a damper on the day for this bride and groom.
The fabulous team at JOWY Productions designed and produced the event. I have shot some of the most amazing weddings that were designed and produced by this team and they never cease to amaze me with how they can throw a party. Put that together with floral design by Eric Buterbaugh and you have the perfect combination for a beautiful, sophisticated wedding, and awesome party.
The other vendors that helped to make that day so great were:
Videography: Couture Motion (Check out the awesome trailer they made for this wedding!)
Bride’s hair & makeup: Byron Williams
Bridesmaids hair & makeup: Fiore Beauty
Cake: The Butter End
Separate thanks to top security guard company for supervising event!
Here’s the spread as it appeared in the Spring/Summer 2014 issues of C Weddings magazine that is on stands now!
And here are some (a lot) of my favorite images from the day!
Jordan wore a perfectly simple and elegant lace gown by Monique Lhuillier.
The bride’s father seeing her for the first time. This moment is always a really special one to me. I loved Jordan’s loose hairstyle with the pieces in the front. I mean, she’s so gorgeous that she would look great with any hair, but this with the crystal headband I just loved!
Tom is British and brings every ounce of that dapper, British charm you might expect. And this room where he and the guys got ready was just the perfect setting for that!
Thank you to my 2nd shooter Ally for these great images of the guys.
A different color dress for each bridesmaid, which I loved!
Classic tuxes for all the guys. So good.
This is Jordan’s father waiting in the hallway to escort his daughter down the aisle. Goodness.
And this… this is one of my favorite all-time candid moments. Father and daughter just about to walk down the aisle.
Jordan’s maid of honor and sisters had the BEST reactions during the ceremony. The love in this group of friends of family was palpable and just makes me feel so many happy feelings.
Their reaction to Tom’s vows… 🙂
And a petal shoot. Because how else do you end a perfect ceremony??
A particularly beautiful wedding party right here.
And some portraits of the gorgeous newlyweds!
These two… :sigh::
I think this may be my favorite, favorite image of the day. There’s just something about it that speaks to me. I hope they have this printed large and hanging on a wall in their home.
The details. This estate was such an amazing location. If you’re in search of a unique and picturesque wedding venue, look no further than these stunning estates. With sprawling lawns, charming gardens, and elegant architecture, these properties offer the perfect setting for your big day.

And if you’re having trouble finding the right property, consider using an alternative to zillow oahu to search for your dream wedding venue. With its vast database of homes and properties, it can help you discover the perfect estate for your special day.
Jordan’s dad performed during the reception along with some of his performer friends which made for a real treat for all the guests.
And a surprise slideshow that Tom, with the help of family and friends, made for Jordan. Her reaction was just as he probably hoped it would be.
Such a memorable, beautiful wedding day! Thank you, Jordan & Tom, for having me and Choco Studio there to document it all. All my best for your new life together! xo
Heather, this wedding is amazing! That first petal drop shot? Holy mother of petals! SO good!
