On a beautiful July afternoon, not a cloud was in the sky as Shonisee prepared to see Reilan for the first time that day. Assisted by her bridesmaids, Shonisee carefully slipped on her BHLDN dress feeling ready and excited to see the man of her dreams. As her friends reached out for a group hug, you could feel the weight of the true and intimate moment that was to come, the first look.

Reilan and Shonisee opted for an intimate first look at Twigs and Petals, where the embraced and later shared their vows with one another. As the sun started to dip in the sky, Shonisee and Reilan made their way to the desert to partake in a small ceremony with family and friends and later an evening of food, fellowship, and celebration.

Shonisee and Reilan it was a true honor to be there alongside you, capturing your special day. I hope your magical honeymoon in California is everything you’ve hoped it to be and more! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for selecting me to document your special day!
