Jessica + Stefan: Vintage Chic Traditions

February 17 , 2011 by: Hong Weddings

We recently made our way to the City of Angels for a weekend celebrating families, traditions, vows and love. This was the wedding of Jessica and Stefan. The two were purposeful in choosing their wedding date to land on the day Stefan’s grandparents married 62 years earlier. It was evident that their role models had a hand in setting the stage and tone for their special day.

The bride stayed true to her vintage chic spirit as she donned a vintage inspired dress with adornments that paid tribute to her family past and present. The groom followed suit but the accessory that defined him was the smile he graced the entire day. It was evident that his bride was his most treasured accessory.

Although the air of casualness resonated throughout the day, there was no compromise of traditions. The couple held true to Stefan’s Jewish heritage and made sure to celebrate and honor the sanctity of their lives beginning as one.

This truly was a wedding that allowed for two new families to be celebrated and honored. As we made our way through the day documenting typical wedding moments, we found that it wasn’t the flowers, accessories, or colorful details that the couple wanted to capture. It was the people in their lives that they wanted to document. Thank you Jessica + Stefan for reminding us that it’s the people who make our special day special.

  • Happy ❤️.
  • You learned to tie your shoes with only one hand. You learned to walk with only one leg. You learned to grow when your spine was fused. You learned to spread your wings when you were told you would be limited. And through all this I had to sit back and watch you, wanting to catch you. You taught me so much more than I taught you. And I’ll always continue to walk in your shadow as your support. Happy Birthday my baby boy. I am so proud of you. ❤️
  • Never underestimate the power of nature, conversation, laughter, and friendship. This weekend was the equivalent of 5 years of therapy.
