Sweet Loraine & Handsome Hans…

This couple and wedding are an absolute fairy tale come true! I can’t say enough about Hans & Loraine. For as short of a time as I have known them, I have grown to love, respect and admire them. Their lives are a testament to following your calling and having faith in God! And I’m so very blessed to be able to call them my friends!

Hans & Loraine’s glorious wedding was set on the breathtaking grounds of the Torrey Pines Lodge in La Jolla, CA. Even though rain was in the forecast, as the ceremony commenced, gorgeous beams of sun burst onto the scene and lit up the crowd of family & friends who had come from all over (even a daughter & son-in-law from England..who were adorable!) to celebrate.

Here are a few sneak peeks into their intimate and extraordinary wedding day…

Loraine’s bouquet wrap was custom-made from her own mother’s wedding dress…SO BEAUTIFUL and so very special!

Hans’ three handsome sons not only looked sharp, but were open to just about anything when it came to photo-ops! So GQ, and so much fun.

Loraine’s daughters were just as beautiful as they were sweet, and their love for Loraine was so evident. The three of them made me miss my mum so much!

This is my favorite shot from Reuben, who second shot for me during the wedding. He ran upstairs to capture this from the balcony…GORGEOUS!

HANS & LORAINE:  You are two incredibly remarkable people. From the bottom of my heart, congratulations on your nuptials and blessings on what I already know is going to be a fairy tale marriage! I’m so blessed to know you both and look forward to more time together in the future!


And this is the BE-A-YOU-TIFUL reason sweet Loraine and I first became friends, and how I was blessed enough to be a part of Hans & Loraine’s special day…our amazing friend Susan! Susan…I love you with my whole heart and cherish you in my life. You are a special friend, mentor and confidant to me. THANK YOU!

  • esther collins - Betsy. Loraine sent us a link to your website yesterday and what a thrill is was to be able to share her and Hans wedding in such a beautiful way. We have loved Loraine since our meeting in 1979 when she and Bill were our neighbors in Alexandria,VA. She is such a special godly woman and is a treasure to have as a friend. We know God has given her a special husband. Your pictures were fantastic. By the way, I amd Laura Leach’s mom. Thanks, Betsy.
