Kind words from the couple:
“We cannot recommend Cass enough! She was so communicative, kind, and flexible throughout the entire process and on our wedding day. We feel so lucky to have been able to work with her. We had the pleasure of having both sun AND pouring rain during our outdoor wedding and Cass rolled with the punches and was able to capture some truly incredible moments. Communication up to our wedding was incredibly professional and timely and she really listened to our ideas and helped to get the shots that we wanted most (family, friends, candids, dancing). Our family thought that she was the bee’s knees as well. Thank you, Cass!”
On a very warm Saturday in June, I arrived at a stunning venue named Jorgensen farms Oak Grove for the wedding of Paia and Lee. While a sudden storm struck soon after, it didn’t stop their first look in the greenhouse. The reaction on Lee’s face is one I’ll never forget: the biggest smile with a tear in his eye. When the rain calmed, their vows were shared in a wide field with a grand tree that anchored their ceremony. We all laughed as Lee’s Best Man and Paia’s Man of Honor playfully pulled out Ring Pops in lieu of their wedding rings, and everyone joyfully sounded kazoos to celebrate their union.
After a cocktail hour of conversation and yard games, the reception began in the greenhouse, and we all prepped for a looming, second storm. But with the heartfelt words from by Paia and Lee’s moms, grandparents, and brothers that made us belly laugh and tear up, we nearly forgot the rain was approaching — until countless umbrellas were distributed as dinner was served in the barn.
Soon it was time to dance the night away. Paia and Lee had their first dance under the lights as the sun began to set. After a bit of dancing and sneaking off for sunset photos, the glow sticks came out and full on party mode was a go.
Being part of Paia and Lee’s wedding day, and getting to know their warm spirits, was an honor. They’re truly two of the best people I’ve ever met: kind, hilarious, fun, brilliant, strong, and so head over heels for each other. Soulmates? 100%.
Cheers to the happy couple!
