I love a bride and groom who aren’t afraid of a little color… and this breathtaking Olema bride?  Well, she is embracing color in a big, big way.  Yep, her stunning (and oh-so-chic!) fuchsia gown is all kinds of wonderful – and the perfect compliment to a day that is literally overflowing with sweet DIY details, a casual, yet elegant vibe and a plethora of lovely moments that will make your heart skip.a.beat.  All captured in brilliant images by Matthew Johnson Studios, it’s a bundle of wedding goodness you just can’t afford to miss.  See it all here.

From Matthew of Matthew Johnson StudiosArrel and Rina planned their destination wedding in Point Reyes National Seashore, a sleepy beach community and park an hour and a half north of San Francisco. The wedding took place at the Point Reyes Seashore Lodge, which had been completely booked for wedding guests.

The morning of the wedding, a few dozen friends and family started work on setting up decorations and the reception area in the property’s garden. The couple and their families did all the planning and styling, mixing aspects of both traditional American and Indian weddings. The blending of cultures was amazing, with guests eating Indian food that was made on site while listening to an American bluegrass band!

I love having the chance to really immerse myself into the whole wedding weekend like I did here with Arrel and Rina. I spent two full days with them, capturing all the small moments that take place during a wedding. Often, the most powerful moments aren’t the ones that happen during the typical eight hours of coverage that most photographers offer.
