When I first FaceTimed with BriAnna and Sean, I knew they were exactly the type of couple that would be a blast to work with! Their easy-going, fun-loving personalities had me laughing away as we chatted about their wedding vision. I'll never forget Sean's response when I asked him what photos were most important to him, "We have enough pictures of us, we want photos that show our guests having fun and enjoying the day!" And fun they had! Sean and Bri also warned me that there would be an "epic dance party." Now I have been a part of close to 100 weddings and let me tell you, he wasn't kidding (check out Sean's awesome dance moves below). This was a dance party to END all dance parties! I was shooting away but secretly jealous that I wasn't on the floor with everyone!
The team at Borderlands Brewery and Maynards Market & Kitchen did a great job working with our California couple to make sure everything was perfect for their unique celebration. From Bri's red dress, to the premature pronouncement of the couple (that's an inside joke that only wedding guests will understand...haha), their wedding was one I will never forget!
Congratulations Bri & Sean!

Engagement story! (paraphrased from the couple):
For the first three years they dated, Bri lived in Los Angeles and Sean lived in Bakersfield, seeing each other only on weekends. When Bri landed a dream job with the National Park Service in San Francisco, Sean concentrated his job search in the Bay Area. After six months, Sean got a job but didn't tell Bri right away! Instead, Sean discretely warned her family and his, and proceeded to propose to Bri with a ring he had ready. After Easter Vigil Mass, while staying with his grandparents in San Luis Obispo, Sean took Bri on a stroll down to the beach. While sitting on a park bench, Sean pulled out a little blue box and asked her to open it. Once he finally convinced her to open it, the first words out of her mouth were, "Does this mean you got the job?!" :) :)
