Welcome back to what promises to be another beautiful, inspiration filled week here at SMP. Let's get your Monday started off on the right foot with this romantic California wedding by Three Nails Photography. I seriously had such a hard time picking the photos for these image boards because every.single.one. is beyond gorgeous. This is just one of those weddings that renders you speechless, so I'm going to let the photos do the talking and boy-oh-boy, do they have a lot to say! See so much more here in the full gallery.
From the Bride...My favorite moment of the wedding was when Brian gave his speech at the reception. He secretly planned to give his speech to my mom in Korean, as my mother doesn't speak English very well. Reaching out to one of my Korean friends to have it translated, he had planned to surprise the both of us. Though I unfortunately found the translation on the dining room table two days before the wedding, the thought and effort he put into it will never be forgotten. His mispronunciations made the moment that much more adorable and the look on my mom’s face told me that this gesture meant the world to her.
Some advice for brides: know that all the time and effort of planning is going to be all worth it. The day of your wedding is unlike any other -- everyone you love and who loves you are all in the same place at the same time, celebrating you, your marriage, and the coming together of your two families. It's really a beautiful moment. Enjoy it!
