It was a gorgeous June day in Southern California and perfect for the wedding of my dear friends Matt & Ashley. I've know them both for many years now and when they asked me to photograph their big day I was thrilled and couldn't wait to travel to Solvang, California.

Their wedding was filled with love, friendship, family, hilarious speeches, heartwarming feelings, and lots of sweet moves on the dance floor! One of my favorite details from their wedding was after the ceremony the couple exchanged handwritten vows in a private vow reading and it was absolutely adorable. It's not everyday you get to hear your two friends profess their love for one another and capture the moment.

Here are some of my favorite images from their big day.
