So this wedding in particular is a huge milestone for me because this AMAZING wedding I got to capture today was my 100th wedding!! I can’t believe we have come this far and it all wouldn’t have been possible with out my talented team here.
Christina and Matthew’s wedding had a elegant rustic style to it. I’ve actually known Matthew since 2006 ~ at my Alma Mater. I met him in a Pharmaceutical Club called “Pills”. Since then, I haven’t heard from him since last year when I was contacted for their wedding day. And I must say that Christina is an expert crafter! She nearly made all of the props at her wedding. Including this amazing wall of flowers made of paper! There were TWO of these!! Everyone was taking non-stop photos of selfless with it.
Although it was nearly a 15 hour day, it was exciting all throughout! We started the day at the Wyndham for wedding prep and first look, and followed by a tea ceremony at Christina’s house. We headed over to St. Boniface Church for the ceremony (super beautiful and spacious church) and afterwards we got to capture their couple session at the Crystal Cathedral (Christ Cathedral). I love this place! So many places to shoot without restriction. I can’t wait until the main glass hall opens up. We finished the day at Wyndham Anaheim. This venue now ranks one of my top venues! Or maybe it’s because of the way it was designed by the couple?
All the vendors were so great to work with. We got to show the SDE an hour earlier than anticipated. So right when the photo montage played, the SDE followed and then a SURPRISE performance from a singer from little saigon… and then, Matthew stood up, got his Guitar and played/sang a written song for Christina. There was so many events throughout the day that it was difficult to pick and choose what parts would make it to the edit. Anyway, enjoy!
by the way, Happy Father’s Day everyone!
