Greetings everyone,

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.

Hello everyone!

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.

Good morning everyone,

It is time to move onward towards Kavita and Nathan’s wedding! My last post featured my beautiful couple, Kavita and Nathan, at Griffith Observatory and Santa Monica Pier for their engagement photos. Now we can conclude this love story with their wedding at Malibu Hindu Temple and Ahmanson Ranch! It was a beautiful morning in Malibu with perfectly blue skies and amazing weather where Kavita and Nathan’s immediate families gathered together at Malibu Hindu Temple participated their first wedding ceremony. Once their Hindu ceremony concluded, plenty of family photos were taken in their amazingly colorful attire while the rest made their way toward Ahmanson Ranch. Before their second ceremony, plenty of time was allocated for the wedding party to relax, bask in the sun, and for awesome wedding party photos! Their wedding color scheme complimented everything from the accessories down to the details of Ahmanson Ranch. Navy blue dresses and bright yellow shoes was a very nice touch! Without further delay, enjoy their wedding photography highlight!

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

I hope those who celebrate this festive day are collecting all those red envelopes from your relatives! On another festive moment, our next lovely couple had a blast at Griffith Observatory and Santa Monica Pier for their engagement photos. For a side tip, those who want to take engagement or wedding photos here at Griffith Observatory, try going on Monday when the venue is closed but still allows people to walk around its premises. After we explored and took plenty of engagement photos here, we fought our way through traffic all the way to Santa Monica Pier to wrap everything up. Despite all the hectic traffic, these two love birds never stopped smiling, laughing, and falling in love. Enjoy.
