It sure has been a while since I have posted my last adventure as a wedding photographer. I apologize for the delays, but I will make it up with some pretty pictures! As for my first post, this wedding took place during the end of December of last year. Yes, I have not blogged any weddings for that long. Of course my couples all received their wedding albums, so do not worry! I just prefer to take my time writing something thoughtful about each event. =)
It was a beautiful winter day when Aileen and Gregory finally tied the knot at Huntington Hyatt. Danny and I started our day with Aileen’s bridal preparations. During our stay in her suite, she provided everyone with music by singing at the top of her lungs. For those who have not read the blog about their engagement session, Aileen will sing lively chords whenever she is excited and happy. Anyway, without further ado, I present to you my singing bride and groom!

Brides always and should get extra perks for their weddings. In this case, Aileen got a classy Rolls Royce with a chauffeur. Poor Gregory had to drive himself. Who said that chivalry is dead? I beg to differ. ^_^
It is always a touching moment of the wedding ceremony when a mom escorts her daughter down the aisle.
Fortunately, the weather was to our favor, especially during the winter. Throughout the wedding ceremony, the sun and ocean provided a warm breeze for all the wedding guests.
…I still wonder what people do with that jar of sand after the wedding. =P
At last, the kiss that sealed the deal!
During cocktail hour, Aileen and Gregory let their guests mingle while we went off to take some portraits. As you can tell from the next photograph, they were faster runners than Danny and me.
Check out that wedding cake! This cake matched the theme and season perfectly. This beautiful cake was not only for aesthetics…it was so delicious! Gregory knew that I love wedding cakes, so he let me have the first choice of slices. The top tier was carrot cake, middle was red velvet, and the base was chocolate.
After the formalities were out of the way, Aileen threw on the red chucks to get the party started!
One group shot of everyone…
…and one awesome group shot of the vendors!
Thank you Aileen and Gregory for the wonderful memories. Aileen, sing to your heart’s content forever!
