Southern California Wedding Photographer~ Randy & Kati

I am not quite sure where to begin with this amazing couple. I have known Randy for my whole entire life. Our parents pretty much grew up together. They are so much more than friends, they are our family. always have been and always will be.

Randy & Kati came to me and asked if I would shoot their wedding, I was SO blessed to be able to say yes. Here is a little bit of the story about how Randy and Kati met. Randi and Kati were both previously married to different people, and because of some very unfortunate circumstances on their other half’s part, they left their partners. Randy and Kati joined a small group and almost instantly hit it off…and the rest is history. Randy has 3 beautiful little girls, Sierra, Kendel, and Mandolin from his previous marriage. Kati also has a handsome little boy, Van, from her previous marriage.

It was VERY important to Randy & Kati that Sierra, Kendel, Mandolin and Van were a big part in the wedding. They did such a good job of making that a top priority.

The ceremony was held at Kati’s sister’s house, which I have to add, was positively gorgeous! I LOVE cute, original backyard weddings. I love love love them!

God bless you guys on this amazing journey you are on. I am so happy that Randy found an amazing, Godly woman, what a blessing. I love you guys with all of my heart. <3

Part of the ceremony consisted of Randy, Kati, Sierra, Kendel, Mandolin and Van pouring different colored sand into a glass vase. It was also very important to them that they do communion as well.

Nice job Desiree! That cake-pop tower looked too good. haha I also really dig the shots of them on the log.
