Destination: Bliss

I'm so fortunate to always get the nicest couples, and as a bonus, have the most wonderful families too! I never met Karyn & Xan until their rehearsal dinner and I couldn't ask for a sweeter couple.

Call it double blessing, Karyn's dad didn't only walk her down the aisle but was also one of the three officiants to marry them. From the church ceremony to the beautifully decked ballroom at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, laughter was overflowing. Some of the best toasts I've heard!

Friends & family jetted from around the country to join the festivities... headed home left to wonder where the surprise honeymoon
destination is. Congratulations Karyn & Xan! ...and a happy 93rd birthday to Xan's grandma, Nellie!

Thanks to these vendors who made the day extraordinary:
Coordinator: Gina Richardson, Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa
Band: Larry Gootkin Music & Entertainment
Flowers: Debbra Robertson,
Fleuris Flower Studio

Marianne ~ You are not only a photographer, you are an artist, a compassionate human being, a psychologist, a gymnast and an escape artist all rolled up into one! I have never met anyone who could capture so much in such a short period of time - from getting to know their subjects to understanding the dynamics. It was a true honor for me to meet and share some time with you. As mother of the groom of this wedding, I salute your talents and thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing Karyn and Xan's story.
