Brian and Alona are married!  June 12th and the sun came out in all its glory for this beautiful wedding held at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club.  Everything from the florals to the food was lush and extraordinary.  And could Alona BE any more gorgeous?!  She was radiant.  This post is long, but I couldn’t narrow it down to any fewer!  First up are her most fabulous Jimmy Choo shoes…

Alona’s sister, Julie, was sooo attentive to her every need.  It was really sweet.
Her dad sees her for the first time.  A few tears were shed.I just love the expressions on their faces here!  More tears are shed at this first look.Greg got this sweeet ring shot!  Dinner was an amazing spread of seafood!
Do you recognize the photo on their coffee mug favors from their engagement session ; )  Such a great idea!I love this impromptu shot of Brian’s two sisters.Let the dancing begin!
And THEN there were fireworks.  Yes, fireworks.  Greg got so many great photos of them, but here are two that I think are very cool!All tuckered out.

One last Photo….the four of us: Brian, Alona, Katie, and Greg.  We had a blast at your wedding and were honored to photograph it!
