Sarah Yates

Janet and German’s Irvine, California Summer Wedding was truly such an intimate, magical day. This couple is the absolute sweetest – and compliment each other perfectly. They tied the knot at the University Club by Wedgwood Weddings in Irvine, California surrounded by some warm August sunshine and the people that love them the most.

When Janet and German first booked me for their wedding day, they asked me how they could serve me.If that doesn’t tell you how gracious they are, I don’t know what would. Their wedding day was full of bright yellow sunflowers and little touches of Disney throughout – the perfect nod to their relationship. Although the dance floor was a runner-up for my favorite part of the day, I have to say the Foot Washing Ceremony was enough to bring me to tears. Watching a couple not only serve one another, but show the love they have for Christ is such a beautiful thing to witness.

I am always left feeling so thankful to my couples when their wedding days are said and done. Being able to capture a couple’s biggest day fills my heart with so much joy. 

Are you and your love planning to add any personal touches to your wedding day (such as Disney-themed cookies, a fun cake representing your favorite show to watch together, etc.)? Let me know down below! And if you’re loving Janet and German as much I am, their beautiful Crystal Cove Engagement Photos are also up on my blog. As always, head over to @sarahyatesphoto on Instagram – I’d love to be friends!
