Good afternoon everyone,
Today is a beautiful day here in Los Angeles, especially after the heavy rain that showed up randomly last night. With such a nice day, Danny and I will be making the most of it in Santa Monica today for a sweet engagement photo session. On the bad side, it is traffic every day here in Los Angeles! Either way, being out in the sun taking engagement photos will be all worth while.
On another note, it is finally time to post up Julianne and Joseph’s wedding from Pasadena Langham and London Hotel in West Hollywood! It was a wonderful morning for Julianne and Joesph’s wedding while the boys suited up and grubbed down at Pasadena Langham while the ladies got their hair and makeup done at Julianne’s brother’s pad nearby. Both Pasadena Langham and the house were filled with so many family members early in the morning not only to be the first to arrive, but also to avoid massive traffic during the dreaded “carmageddon” that happened a while back in Los Angeles and Santa Monica. For the locals here in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Santa Monica, you know what I meant about “carmageddon” when the city closed down all lanes on 405 freeway for road construction. Fortunately, the wedding managed off without many glitches since everyone either showed up early or in a timely fashion.
For the first event for Julianne and Josephs wedding, they had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony for the parents and elders. Check out the wedding photos below to see all the challenges Joseph had to face before he was even welcomed through the door! All the laughter and hugs from the wedding guests during this tea ceremony made one happy home and there were so many amazing wedding photos taken just in the morning! Once all the Chinese wedding traditions were done and over with, everyone made the trek over to London Hotel in West Hollywood to continue on with the Catholic wedding festivities. Once Julianne jumped into her beautiful white wedding dress, we ran around all over London Hotel and the streets of Hollywood during their wedding photography session. With such a beautiful day similar to today, we just had to make use of the vibrant blue sky for majority of their wedding photos. Everyone’s crazy and energetic personalities made each wedding photo look so amazing!
Check out below on play-by-play scenes from Julianne and Joseph’s amazing wedding from their photos. From their preparation, both wedding ceremonies, and speeches, everything was absolutely memorable. Enjoy the show.

While the ladies were upstairs helping Julianne jump in her wedding dress, we photographed a couple snap shots of the boys in their natural habitat.
Joseph’s first glance at Julianne in her beautiful white wedding dress. The reactions from these wedding photographs were priceless.
Seal the deal!
After the wedding ceremony was over, each pair in the wedding party had their own unique style during their grand entrance to their rooftop reception.
I am always a sucker for sweets and creative wedding ring photos, so why not just combine them together?
Special thanks goes out to Roselyne our wedding coordinator for taking care of everything at the wedding!
Congratulations to the both of you, Julianne and Joseph! It was definitely a real pleasure to be your wedding photographers here at London Hotel – West Hollywood and Langham – Pasadena.
