Marissa + Patrick's Mercer Oaks Wedding

I've often said that I love what I do because weddings are a microcosm of human emotion. Marissa + Patrick's wedding certainly fit the bill. It was a rainy day at Mercer Oaks, but that didn't stop anyone from having a great time. Their closest friends and family came to celebrate and laugh with a couple so clearly right for each other, and to honor and remember Patrick's brother and best man who was tragically killed while serving in Afghanistan. It was a day that covered the full spectrum of emotion, and I was honored to be there to document it.

It's days like their's that serve as reminders that what matters isn't the centerpieces or programs or details. It's the connection between a couple and the support of those closest to them.

Marissa + Patrick - thank you.
