Real Wedding: Annabelle and Shawn's Wedding by Vivian Chen Photography

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Vivian of Vivian Chen Photography based in Oakland, CA. Here’s what Vivian has to say about the wedding:

Anabelle and Shawn’s wedding was just as easy going and fun as they are. From the get go, I just knew that they had a great sense of humor and all the details from the day show it.

See more after the cut!

From the funny poem on their invitation to the cheesy jokes on the back of the menus, they filled their wedding day with lots of laughter.

They were married at the St Vincent de Paul Church before continuing the festivities at the elegant Marines’ Memorial Club where their guests were treated to delicious desserts (before dinner!) and hilarious toasts by their family members.
