Real Wedding: Quyen + Jon’s Vintage-Inspired Wedding

Carlie and Gabriel are the talented husband and wife team behind Gabriel Ryan Photography. Their photos are always beautiful and perfectly capture the details and emotions of the day. Carlie thought this wedding would be perfect to share and I couldn’t agree more!

From Gabriel, Quyen & Jon’s wedding was a delight to photograph. They had obviously taken a lot of time to think through many of the details of their big day to make sure it went off without a hitch and by planning the ceremony and reception in the same location (the muckenthaler mansion and cultural center in fullerton, ca), the day seemed to flow effortlessly. As a professional wedding photographer, I appreciate detail & simplicity, which can often be difficult to mix properly, but Jon & Quyen found the perfect combination.

Quyen describes her wedding inspiration as 1920-1930’s era, antique flea market.
