Photographically, this isn’t the greatest photo. But let me tell you! This one man band whose name is Danny held his own all by himself with a guitar and ukelele. He played amazing music! Anyone who listens to his music would agree. And you know he’s good when everyone (including me) went up to him to ask for a business card. Not only is he talented in singing and playing the guitar, but according to his business card he’s also a swing dance instructor and a gondolier. In case you don’t know what a gondolier is, it’s one of those guys who row a gondola (skinny Italian boats). His music can be found on myspace.com/dannymaika.

These next two photos are what I call brotherly love.

I love this guy, and I don’t even know his name. During his toast he said he cut his shoulder length hair just for Erwin. That’s love man.

This is my good friend Elaine! She’s Erwin’s sister and she’s doing her best not to fall apart emotionally while giving her toast.  Elaine and I used to take advertising class together, and we’d be big procrastinators in our homework, that’s how we got along so well.

The guy wearing a fedora hat is the father of the groom. I don’t know many Asian dads that can pull off a fedora hat, he is the man.

When Maribel and Maria have parties, they have them big. Real BIG. They rented out an entire venue for their father’s 60th surprise birthday party. There were at least 300 people there. Not impressed?

They also had TWO food vendors. My favorite being al pastor tacos (shown below). The other was a buffet line. Still not impressed?

javiers60th 011s Tacos! Beer! Mariachis! Mucho Comida! (Event)

They had an enormous bounce house for all the children to run around and use up all their energy, so they don’t bother the adults. Still not impressed? You should at least be a little bit by now. For a birthday? It’s impressive.

This is the adorable Kaylene! Last time I photographed her, she was only 1! Now she’s three, and she can say my name! I love her!

This is Javier! It’s kinda funny, there was an older gentlemen who walked in a minute before he did and I started snapping photos of the other guy. Then I realized it wasn’t Javier.

Okay back to the amazing aspects of the party. They had a full on mariachi. I think there were 5-6 of them, I know only two of them are show in the photo.

So if you weren’t impressed by all that you must be a baller. And you need to invite me to your parties! But if you’re like me, I think you’ll agree that this was an incredible party filled with fun and good food.

Thanks again to Maria and Maribel!

Tons and tons of church organs. Amen to that!

There are some things in life I just don’t understand. This is one of them.

Right after this she yelled “Stop taking photos of me (because she was tearing up) !” I backed off immediately, I didn’t want to get hurt.

Hey if you want something, you gotta go get it right?

They had a second bouquet toss. And let me explain what’s happening in this photo. In the far left there’s two girls who seem like they’re paying attention. Then there’s the girl second from the right who clearly has the bouquet clearly in her hands. But, the girl on her right has a hold of her wrist, and the girl her left has a grip on her elbow.

img 1185s Jenefel and Quentin Part Deux (Wedding)

After examining this photo for a long time, I still couldn’t figure out what was going.  This would be good for a ‘make your own caption.’

So long distance + long term relationships do work! Long distance as California to Alabama.  Long term as in 6 years? I believe. Love conquers all right?

Meet Jenefel and Quentin. Jenefel’s (pronounced jen-uh-full) quite the comedian. Quentin’s (pronounced like Tarantino’s first name) one of those really nice people with out a single bone of malice in their whole entire body. It was a beautiful church wedding, and quite frankly an action packed day.

True story. I was shooting the shoes in the house, and the mother of the bride who’s quite a joker herself, told me I should shoot the shoes on the stove and in the microwave.  I replied by laughing nervously, because I wasn’t sure if she was serious or not. But then I thought to myself, maybe that might be a cool shot. I didn’t end up doing it because I thought the shot below was really really good already.

Um…there was this really awkward looking mannequin outside the house. So I decided to make it look even more awkward by putting shoes on it. But it’s so cool.

Kids as adorable as these make any wedding a lot more fun.

img 0294s Meet Jenefel and Quentin Part Un (Wedding)

Let me tell you the story of the shot below. The make-up-brushes and compacts had a century long feud, and one day they decided to have one final battle on the land of the towel.  Bobby pins and nail polish were hurled at their opposing enemies for hours and hours.  This is what remains of the battlefield.

Putting the dress on can be a very, very exciting event.

This of course, is the lovely bride Jenefel

Now on to the gentlemen. This isn’t the groom, but I just like this photo because it’s a very interesting photo to say the least. Haha. It’s probably not what you probably think it is.

img 0336s Meet Jenefel and Quentin Part Un (Wedding)

This is the groom, Quentin.  The jolly chap.
