Most people will probably disagree with me, but I’m still stickin by it. I think Jamila and Andrew resemble Rachel and Phinn from Glee. Andrew’s tall, a football player, and expressionless most of the time. Jamila’s a very pretty brown-eyed, lean, brunette. I told them that they  should be those characters for the next Halloween, they really wouldn’t have to try very hard to be them I think.

Anyway! Jamila and Andrew’s wedding took place at the Sierra La Verne Country Club, and as Jamila would describe it (I asked her today) it was perfect! Everything went very smoothly, and she got to see all her friends and family. Andrew agreed with his emotionless face icon smile Meet Jamila and Andrew! Theyre married!

Today I actually photographed their trash the dress session, and I finally got a really big smile on his face. You’ll see why in a future post. But even when these two broke it down like in “you got served” doing the Party Rock Anthem Shuffle as a surprise dance during the reception Andrew still kept a very straight face. I was very very impressed! The choreography, the energy, the timing, and the transition from slow dance to “shuffle” was impeccable. I found it took three days worth of practice and lessons from a dance teacher, and it definitely paid off! Dashing! I never use the word dashing, but it was! Jamila and Andrew got the party started because after that these guests got down like there’s no tomorrow.

Congratulations Jamila and Andrew!!! Stay tuned for your trash the dress photos!

I’m not really a “vintage” wedding photographer, and I’m normally not big on details, but Sherryl and Kevin’s wedding really impressed me and opened my eyes. Wow! Their wedding had details galore!!! A lot of their details were out in the open and very easy to see, but there’s a lot of details that aren’t obvious and finding them is both challenging and fun. But all of the details were really incredible!!!

Most of the time I’d give credit to the bride or to the event designer for the whole set design and details, but something tells me Kevin the groom had something to do with this magnificence. I found out at the wedding, that he loves interior design.

Other than the details, the wedding day was super incredible. The emotions were unstoppable! During the ceremony I think there was tear being shed for every sweat dew that was dripping. I’m pretty in love with this wedding.

Congratulations to Sherryl and Kevin!!!

I love the California Science Center!!! I’m a nerd at heart, so when I found out that Sam and Alice’s reception was at the California Science Center I was ecstatic! And when I went through the venue walk through I couldn’t believe my eyes, this place was gorgeous!!! It had a whole wall of sequin, a rectangular reflecting pool, a bamboo forest, spiral stair cases all inside!!! As if that weren’t beautiful enough, Sam and Alice decorated the place nicely with really elegant floral centerpieces!

Their ceremony took place at the South Pasadena United Methodist Church, and maybe it’s just me but I felt like I was in Noah’s ark (not in a bad way). The ceiling had a smooth convex wooded panels that curved upwards! Like whoa! It’s pretty amazing.

Congratulations to Sam and Alice! Both of you guys looked so beautiful, Sam wore a nice polka-dotted bowtie while Alice had three different outfits, the first being a beautiful silky A-line wedding dress, the second being a traditional Asian qi-pao and lastly a fun summer dress. Classy!
