Royal Melbourne Wedding Photos – Linda + Rick!

Royal Melbourne Country Club Wedding Photos

I’ve known Linda + Rick for a long time…Linda and I went to junior high together! She is now the 4th person I’ve photographed from Fairview South (Thank you Facebook for helping reconnect old friends!)! Rick and I also went to high school together – and go figure…Linda + Rick dated for a brief time in high school! Their relationship was rekindled years later and now they are married! What a story! I was thankful to have been their wedding photographer to help capture their special day! Here’s one of my favorites from the day as they walked on the Royal Melbourne Country Club Golf Course!

For those that don’t know…in Japanese tradition, it’s good luck to have a thousand hand folded origami cranes gifted to the couple at their wedding! Their wedding officiant happens to be my Aunt! This wedding was a “Nakai Production” =)
