A September Wedding to Remember (Walnut Creek / Concord CA)

bridal accessories shot by walnut creek wedding photographer

We’re looking back on the wedding of lovely Austa and Austin; yes you read their names correctly but it gets even better: Austa simply dropped one letter to go from her maiden name (Ikhile) to her married name (Ihile). You bet we got a serious kick out of this!

We enjoyed working on the design of the couple’s wedding ceremony and reception decor in Walnut Creek and Concord, respectively. The wedding ceremony took place at Walnut Creek Church of Christ followed by a reception at Clarion Hotel.

Mr & Mrs Ihile shared a few wedding photos with us and even threw in a couple of pictures from their engagement shoot! We hope you’ll enjoy and be inspired by a little peek into their beautiful love and memorable wedding celebration . . . and make sure you get to the end of this post for a special announcement 😉
