“How Sweet it is to Be Loved By You!”
Now that I’m getting married myself with my wedding only 40 days away, I’m starting to feel like going thru the motions of planning a wedding and actually getting married yourself should be a requirement for any wedding photographer. Not that I wasn’t before, but I am much more in-tuned to my client’s emotions and look out for even more detailed things they had thought of in their planning process so that I can capture to detail their day.
Kathy and Alex had their wedding ceremony at the Wayfarer’s Chapel located in Rancho Palos Verdes. I’ve always dreamed of shooting a wedding at this beautiful ocean view location so when they walked thru the doors inquiring about us photographing their wedding–I was sooo stoked! I’m so happy they chose us b/c we were able to capture so many great shots for them that day.
Amazing creations out of all different kinds of fruit to depict a dragon.
Check out all that confetti! So much fun.
Love her floral one shouldered strap.
The flowergirl holding a humming bird.
Kathy walks in with her brother.
First kiss as husband and wife! *tear*
The lighting hit her dress just so perfectly here when she exited the chapel.
We emptied out the chapel and had them take a few shots in it.
A view of the Pacific Ocean behind them.
You’ll see by now that Kathy and Alex love to kiss. Not even on command by me.
They also love to laugh–lots of inside couple jokes.
Isn’t this just gorgeous!?! You can see Catalina Island.
Here comes the fun at the reception…check out this sundae of a centerpiece that goes so perfectly with their theme! i LOVE the twirly/twisty straw–soo CUTE!
What’s even better than sundae centerpieces?!? Sundae and cupcake placecard holders!!!
These have got to be the most unique and beautiful placecard holders I have ever seen. And yes, those coca cola cups are real glass! And those flowers are also real!
I had to take individual shots of them. I could not resist.
A candy station is a MUST for this theme.
BEST of all–Kathy and Alex’s creativity took them to grand heights of making their own photo backdrop. You have to see it to believe it. There’s 2 windows at the back where they stand and peek thru while their guests sit and pose at the front. Guests had soo much fun with this. It was definitely something new and refreshing to see. Great job guys!
Their sweetheart table looks so SWEET. Lovin’ the stained glass vases.
Check out their bobble head replicas as cake toppers. ADORABLE!
The cupcake was so cute I used it to shoot their rings on.
We also used the Hershey’s kisses from the candy station to hold the rings.
Check out the happy couple before their entrance. Yeah, those are 2 sets of dragon dancers behind them–ready to entertain the crowd!
Stealing a kiss before the entrance. Told yah they love to kiss.
