From the Photographer

Chanwook and Stephanie Park tied the knot on September 6th, 2020 at Boulder Ridge by Wedgewood Weddings. The amount of obstacles these two had to face to get to the altar was insane, and yet through it all, their faith in Christ and each other never faltered. Chanwook and Stephanie have been planning their special day on opposite ends of the country, Chanwook living on the East Coast and Stephanie on the West Coast.

 

Once COVID-19 hit, they didn’t get to see each other for several months. As 2020 progressed and vendors developed protocols on how to handle weddings while maintaining social distancing, the idea of having a somewhat “normal” wedding ceremony seemed obtainable. All was going well until the fires struck Northern California just days before Chanwook and Stephanie’s wedding day. By this point, it was too late to postpone their wedding ceremony. I prayed that the weather would clear up on the day of their wedding. Sure enough the smog steered clear from us, although it did get over 100 degrees in the afternoon and early evening. Through it all, everyone was in great spirits, wore masks, and helped lift Chanwook and Stephanie up as they entered the sanctity of marriage. 

 

I’d like to give a huge shoutout to Lauren and her team at Boulder Ridge by Wedgewood Weddings for curating a safe environment for everyone to be in. Several hand sanitizing stations were spread across the venue (including bottles of Purell on each dining table), dining tables had large gaps between them, and there were markers on the ground by the bar and bathrooms so guests knew to stand six feet apart from each other.
