When the opportunity arises, I gotta show love for the local weddings! Kari and Ryan who met in 5th grade let there love slowly grow and develop and wed seven years after they started dating in college. The pair were married at Verandas right here in Manhattan Beach. I am sure no one will be shocked by the knowledge that I love the color palate, especially the gorgeous green of Kari’s shoes and the cute bridesmaid dresses. Sandra Pan, who was the photographer for this wedding and captured all of the beauty below, shared this about the couple, “Through thick and thin, these two have gone through, proving to be each others’ best friend. Whatever life brings them, I know they have found more than just a spouse, or a lover, but a best friend. ” what lovely sentiments! I can only hope that my wedding photographer has such positive feelings about mine and my fiance’s upcoming union.
