“Loving you has taught me that Disney Princes aren’t for me. My fantasy of the dark, handsome, and tall prince riding in on his trusty steed and whisking me away to our happily ever after fails in comparison to our love story. Fairy tales are great, but what we have is better. It’s real.”

It’s easy to get caught up in all the details of a wedding day. Making sure everything goes just right and looks just so. And while the setting was the gorgeous Firestone Winery nestled in the hills of Los Olivos, the bride stunning in her wedding dress with personal accents like her Grandma’s necklace, and the food and drink delicious, Sara Beth and Yan’s wedding day wasn’t about the little details that went just right; It was truly about love.

“Love is a promise. Vowing to each other that through all the testing, all the hardship, all the love, all the wonderful all the terrible; You promise that you walk this wonderful and terrible walk together.”

Sara Beth + Yan’s day was all about their love, their commitment, and promises to each other. Their promises to live life together, to make their wedding day vows last a lifetime.

“A successful marriage takes not only takes an enormous amount of flexibility and communication, it also takes a host of people who can lend an ear, wisdom, or even a laugh.”

With personalized messages and vows to their parents, Sara Beth + Yan included their friends and family throughout their day, in some of the most personal and special ways we’ve seen yet! Sara Beth is even learning Chinese and was able to make her promises to Yan’s parents in their native language. Even their bunnies were at the ceremony in spirit, and were actually represented by the best man’s speech with a little stuffed white rabbit.

This is one couple who really understands that love isn’t something you hold onto, it’s something you share.
