Beacon Hill Wedding | Audra & Ryan XV Beacon

June 11, 2015

This wedding was small, intimate, and perfect.  The day started off with a really shaky forecast and with a rooftop wedding, thats not exactly what you were hoping for!  We were pulling for the rain to hold off and after a few sprinkles, the skies cleared and made way for the perfect day.

Something we’ve never seen before, but absolutely loved:  this couple walked down the isle together!

Sister of the bride sang the processional:

The officiant was Audra’s Reverend Advisor from high school!  So there were a lot of inside jokes!   He had everyone laughing, crying and laughing again!  It was such a special ceremony.

The couple shared a moment after the ceremony.

The small reception to follow was hosted in the wine cellar at Mooo Restaurant.

Thank you to Audra, Ryan, and Both of your families for inviting us into your lives to document such a special event.  We were touched by the sanctity of the ceremony and honored to have shared in your joy.

xoxo Makayla & Dave
