Angela and Ashley got married after Prop 8 was overturned in California and boyyyyy did they do it up! From the bridal gifts (a kayak and a surfboard) to the shot of vodka they took (at the altar!) as their first drink, it's pretty clear they were having a gooood time. I highly recommend watching the same day edit wedding video from Imperial Video if you want to get your emotions on — or if you just want to see Angela dancing up the aisle with both of her parents.

These two got married at The Hollins House at Pasa Tiempo in Santa Cruz, and a few of the photos photographer Colson Griffith shared with us tell the tale:

  1. The beauty of this wedding broke my computer. I’m pretty sure the internet can’t handle this much awesomeness.

  2. The video just made me cry. I always love when a wedding is more about the love and less about the centerpieces. I’m sure they were lovely, but who cares when you could just tell the couple and families were beaming with love and celebration. You ladies did it right!

  3. This is fantastic. And I love the dancing outfits with the fancy hair and makeup at the end. 🙂

    Edit to add: Gah!! I just watched the video. So much LOVE!!! I started crying.

  4. Wow Just WOW!! that same day edit video was fantastic, gorgeous, really fine work! I wish we’d done that.
    These two are incredible and fabuloso !! Rock on!!! 🙂

  5. V. glad you warned of crying for the video – watching the bride being zipped into her dress and crying was just amazing, her feelings must have been sky high!

  6. I’m not sure there are enough words in the english language to capture how beautiful this wedding was. The video was fantastic, the pictures are as gorgeous as the brides are, and I am in such a good mood after watching this. Congratulations to the happy couple!

  7. Well great. I watched the video and bawled like a big sap. CONGRATS! It’s so great to see 2 people so happy together! 🙂

  8. I didn’t cry at the video, because I’m a robot, but geeeeeeeez that’s a gorgeous wedding. Congrats.

  9. Two brides are better than one! Damn, these ladies really did it up! Gorgeous location, multiple outfits, beautiful cake. Congratulations!!
