I met Matt at a mutual friend’s wedding in Seattle 5 years ago.  Fast forward 5 years later and he contacts me asking if I can capture his proposal.  We have an awesome time at Descanso Garden where I was a ninja capturing the beautiful moment without Mona knowing.  She had one of the brightest, most joyful reactions I’ve ever seen.  Of course she said yes.

After a few months, they plan their wedding at the house of her parents in their well manicured and decorated backyard.  Its a lovely home and a peaceful looking garden in the back with a cute fountain in the center.  There’s about 40-50 guests in total, all close friends and family looking very dapper.


The ceremony was very sweet.  They had their personal vows which they shared in front of the intimate audience.  It was very true to their personalities which is warm, friendly, full of joy and a touch of humor.  For a smaller event, it was quite well planned. I loved their details on the tables and the little party favors they had arranged for their guests.  They even had a caricature artist there who drew some pictures of some of the guests.
