Lynn + Chris ~ Vizcaya Pavilion ~ 5.22.11

With only an hour of sleep after shooting Siobhan and Matthew’s wedding, I made the trip up to Sacramento for Lynn and Chris’ big day! It was well worth the drive, too, because Lynn and Chris are some of kindest, funniest and easy-going people you’ll meet. Held at the historical Vizcaya Pavilion and Mansion, the couple exchanged vows under a huppah in a wonderful mix of Jewish tradition and modern trend. I know parts of it are in their trailer, but I’d like to share an excerpt because their words to each other were so cool. 😉

Lynn to Chris:
“Christopher, the first day that I met you I knew that I would marry you someday. I am truly lucky to be a part of your life which as of today becomes our lives together. You are the magic of my days, you help me laugh, you teach me love. You provide a safe place for me unlike I’ve ever known. I promise to encourage your dreams. I promise to always honor your passion for playing games. I promise always to be honest, kind, patient and forgiving. But most of all I promise to be your true companion always.”

Chris to Lynn:
“We met as UPS Store employees, the prettiest girl I’ve seen in my life.
You made me laugh and weakened my knees, I knew full well that you would be my wife.
Although we fight and disagree sometimes – be it money, food or latest fashion –
Even about these vows that try to rhyme, it ensures there’ll be no loss of passion.
I choose you as the mother of our kids, no matter what the quantity may be.
Throughout our life when I look past my lids, I’ll remember the lucky one is me.
I promise to be faithful and be true, give you my love until our lives are through.”

So. Awesome. Getting a glimpse into the beauty of Lynn and Chris’ love, history and inside humor left me feeling honored to be a part of such an amazing union. They seemed absolutely perfect for each other and I think you’ll agree as you watch their wicked-awesome trailer. Enjoy.


Nicole from XSiGHT was the photographer for the day and did an awesome job! Below are some of my fav’s.

We took a quick (okay, kinda long) walk down to what we called the “dirty bridge” but it was all worth it for images like this. Chris, lookin’ fly.
