It has definitely been a while since my last wedding blog entry and it is good to pick up where I left off, even if I am about 2 1/2 years worth of wedding and engagement photography events behind! The past few years has taken off quite nicely with all the photo shoots and plenty of happy memories. With all these amazing wedding and engagements that we have photographed in the past, it is great to finally share their stories with you. Bear with me for a while, there will be a lot of updating coming soon. With a clear calendar today and fresh coffee brewing, let us rock n’ roll starting with Sharon and John’s wedding hosted at Rancho Las Lomas in Orange County!
Good afternoon everyone!
I hope everyone is having plenty of vitamin D as the summer heats up. The beaches here in Los Angeles is ever so tempting and beckons for one of those lazy days to lounge about with an chilled drink. Whichever adventures await, I hope everyone may enjoy some fun outdoors despite how busy schedules may become. One our next crazy adventure, we took part of a sweet, beautiful, and intimate wedding on Malibu beach with about 20 guests. Even with such a small wedding at the beach, our cameras photographed away to capture all those sweet sweet memories.
Summer is just around the corner, which means wedding season will be up on full steam ahead for the up coming months! Aside from the stream of exciting weddings coming up, I hope everyone has some crazy and adventurous plans for the summer too. Life is meant to be experienced, not observed. For our next experience, we made our way to beautiful Castle Green in Old Town Pasadena. This historical landmark stood strong and welcomed guests from all across the world since the settlement of Pasadena. A few upgrades have changed here at Castle Green, but the decor and architecture still remain in immaculate condition. Before we move along to Castle Green, Meichu and Sean honored their parents with an intimate tea ceremony at each parents’ homes. Few tears were shed and many words of advice from the elders were shared as these two love birds started their new chapter together.
It is pleasure to introduce our next lovely couple, Natasa and Kosta, in our next wedding adventure! We met these two love birds from one of our previous couples, Sue and Armando, who got hitched at beautiful Cancun, Mexico! Now it is time for their dear friends to tie the knot too at Casa Romantica in San Clemente! It was a cool and breezy Fall morning while each designated parties warmed each other up with plenty of laughter and champagne. While Natasa and her gorgeous ladies finished the final touches to their dresses and accessories, Kosta and the boys welcomed and ushered their family to Casa Romantica. With the extra time before their wedding ceremony started, we captured a series of colorful wedding photos despite how cloudy the day was. Their personalities and hilarious outtakes were enough to make every wedding photo picture perfect.
Good evening everyone!
This next wedding is a bit of a special one. One of my dearest friends, Mabel and Michael, finally got hitched last summer and there were plenty of familiar faces around that day. I have known these cool cats since high school and participated in a handful of crazy adventures with them since then. Now it was the next chapter in their lives and it was an honor to record such a special moment. To kick start this little love story, everyone started their morning with…A LOT OF COFFEE! Both sides of the party, including us, were up at the crack of dawn prepping for the wedding and of course, horsed around with a bunch of friends in between our duties. Time flew by quite quickly with good company, so 5AM with the help of coffee was not bad at all! Mabel and Michael performed a couple traditional tea ceremonies on both sides of the families to honor and respect their elders. Through each cup given to their relatives, they were offered some wise words from each relative in exchange. Once the wedding ceremony was over, we headed out to a local park to wrap up some cool wedding portraits before their reception. Their reception was one eventful moment after another. From speeches, bountiful of food, to an epic lion dance performance by one of Michael’s uncles, everyone cheered and enjoyed the night away. Enjoy.
