Oh my gosh, I'm so in love with this adorable couple and their super fun and sweet e-session by Shirley Henderson Photography. It's one part fairy tale, one part vintage romance, and one part English tea party and I'm literally obsessed with the all the fun, colorful details. I can only imagine how absolutely fabulous their wedding was and I personally want to ask the bride to pretty please submit her images because I bet they are beyond cool!

From the Bride...Jonathan and I had a lovely vintage fairy tale picnic in April, at Kelly Park in San Jose, CA. I am partly English, so I have a deep affection for teapots and teacups. The session included family heirloom books from both my childhood and my mother's. The Cinderella book was my mother's favorite when she was little, so it holds a special place in my heart and I was so happy to incorporate it in the theme. As you can see our wedding invitation carries on the fairy tale theme.

I am a published illustrator who graduated with honors from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and my goal is to now become a visual coordinator. Our engagement shoot, my bridal shower and our wedding were a perfect place to start!

Jonathan and I met at speed dating two years ago and got engaged 11 months later. Our beautiful Shabby-Chic -Vintage-Fairy Tale- English Tea Party Wedding, took place on June 6th, at the gorgeous Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, CA.

Our photographer, Shirley Henderson was an integral part of the E_shoot and the wedding. She completely understands everything vintage, and I wouldn't have achieved the look we were going for without her. We will treasure the images she captured that afternoon forever.
