Serena Grace Photography was gracious enough to let me tag-team yet another beautiful wedding. This beautiful wedding belonged to a nice and wonderful couple Rebecca and Richard. To see Serena’s photos click here.

We started off our day at the Pasadena Westin where we captured Rebecca and her bridesmaids getting ready. The Westin hosts both a beautiful interior and and exterior. The lobby area boasted tall dark ceilings while the outdoor courtyards contrarily had ample lighting featuring water fountains and colorful Spanish-style walls. It was gorgeous. Rebecca and Richard had their first look here icon smile Meet Rebecca and Richard (Wedding)

Next we traveled to Pasadena’s neighboring city where the ceremony was held at the Glendale Presbyterian Church. Although this church was dark and dramatic, it centered a beautifully well-lit, concave, and giant cross figure. Numerous overhanging colored lights would hover gracefully above where Rebecca and Richard said their vows icon smile Meet Rebecca and Richard (Wedding)

For the couple shots we visited the Los Angeles Historic State Park since it was close to the Empress Pavilion where the reception took place. The park proved itself to be a nice little oasis in the midst of downtown. It probably would’ve been nicer if there weren’t so many flies.  Two flies kamikaze-d into both of James’s eyes (one of the videographers) at which point we all laughed, except for James. I think one flew into my mouth.

Thanks again to Serena, and congratulations once more to Rebecca and Richard.

Yet another chance to second shoot with the talented photographer and my good friend Nathan Nowack . Check out his photos here.

The wedding of Grace and Nick took place in the heart of downtown at the beautiful Kyoto Grand Hotel. If you’ve never been there, the interior of the hotel is gorgeous! It holds different shades of vibrant red chairs, walls, and other decor. While the outside is nested with luscious green plants, peppered with flowers and topped off with a waterfall! It’s crazy to me because all of this sits on the rooftop of a hotel.

So here’s Grace and Nick, a beautiful, sweet young couple. Unfortunately they had some issues with the sound at the reception which put a damper to the mood, but when they got it to work, it was a poppin’!  I give props to Grace for going through the entire first dance without a worry in the world even though the sound system wasn’t cooperating. She had the biggest smile on her face, and they even busted out some fancy moves.

I present to you Grace and Nick’s wedding at the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens!
