James + Brittney | Santa Clarita Wedding

I cannot tell you how much fun we had (and how many times I cried) at James + Brittney Gage's wedding (at Grace Baptist Church, Santa Clarita)! I couldn't help but tear up when I saw James see his beautiful bride for the first time. Their love was so evidently genuine. 

We first met James and Brittney less than a year ago through some mutual friends and it's been a huge blessing to get to know them. There were so many beautiful moments throughout the day and lots of love shared between these two adorable lovebirds! 

Zach + Samantha Lunde | Thousand Oaks

Conejo Valley Church of Christ | Thousand Oaks, CA

This is what a former ballet dancer and a youth pastor falling in love looks like.  The gracefulness and contagious smiles that Samantha exudes is unexplainable.  I've (Kim) been friends with Samantha since junior high.  I felt like a part of me was missing when she left to go to a different school during early high school. She never failed to encourage me with positive thoughts and sore abs from all of the laughter.  She had such a bright smile, that I knew it couldn't get any bigger.

Then I met Zach at their bridal shower.  And her smile was different.  It was glowing with a different kind of glow.  It was oozing happiness and pure joy - she found her soul-mate.  They were like two peas in a pod, and I'm pretty sure that's what you'll see when you look at the photos from their beautiful summer wedding!
