On a cheerful, sunny day, Mariko and Jesse exchanged vows in front of their immediate family. Rather than have a large wedding, they decided to bring their loved ones to Yosemite, a place they had always longed to visit. This fun, lively couple was a dream to work with.

I love when a grandmother helps the bride get ready. This woman’s hands hold so much history and so many stories that I’d love to hear. This is three generations of women who are kind and loving.

Mariko’s brother did a beautiful job with the ceremony. There was laughter, sentimentality, and tears.



I told Mariko to say something in Jesse’s ear. I have no idea what she said, but she sure was cracking herself up!
