Des & Sandy

I’ve known Des for a few years now. He’s steadfast, silly, quirky, tech-savvy, wise, and genuine with a servant heart. When he asked me to shoot his wedding, I was ecstatic but also curious – Who was this Sandy?? Us three met up for Korean shaved ice in Buena Park, and I remember being so enchanted by Sandy’s kindness and calm-cool-collectedness. She’s the type of girl who is true to herself and inspires others to do the same – without even knowing it. She doesn’t need fancy, she doesn’t need all the fuss and pizzazz, and it was honestly refreshing! I found myself laughing as we talked, because Des was more of the “Bridezilla” than Sandy. The reversed roles was a characteristic of their relationship that added to their endearing quirkiness. I will never forget visiting them in their home and seeing their paintings from one of those “wine and paint nights”. You would think their paintings would look similar to one another because they had the same class and same instructor, but one was full of vibrant pinks and one had darker blues and blacks – literally a day vs. night contrast. Des told me to guess which one Sandy painted, and I was humorously shocked when he told me the pink one was his!!! Apparently Sandy decided to take her own path and paint her own interpretation of the sample painting. I loved it. Although different, Des and Sandy work so well together. They’re wonderful hosts, deeply care about their friends and church community, and provide a sense of safety and belonging to anyone who enters their home or their lives. They provide such a safe space because of their generosity, love, and humility.

I hope you enjoy these pictures of their special day as much as I enjoyed being a part of it.
