Of course, as the beauty guru that she is, Sissi prettied herself up for her own wedding day with a vintage style that she rocked like none other. Seeing her groom all tidied up in tux and bow-tie (as opposed to his regular ensemble of plaid shorts and flip flops), she was all smiles and ready to sass it up for our cameras....and also for the youngest "Uncle Bob" we've ever met at a wedding! But unlike others that would get in our way, this little guy made everybody's day a little bit brighter (smile). And we have to say, from copying everything the professionals are doing, this little guy might actually learn a thing or two!
Sissi and Denny had a sweet pond-side ceremony at the Woodbury Country Club, and walked down the aisle as husband and wife showered by a thousand mini yarn pom poms that the bride made herself! It must have been a painstakingly meticulous project, but at least, that must feel much nicer than being showered by rice, I would assume! After all the traditions, it was finally time for the party of their lives--Sissi and Denny style. We had such a good time enjoying the party with their entourage, including a couple of our past brides and grooms, that by the end of the night, our cheeks hurt from laughing so hard! They sure know how to get the party going. The secret? Open bar (smile).
Congratulations, you guys! We're so honored to have been your photographers. You are one talented bride, and we can't wait to run into you at other weddings again!
We. Love. California. Not just because of the abundance of great food and perfect weather, but because we get to shoot weddings like this one, at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena.
We first met Anna and Jeremy when they came to us for their cherry blossom engagement session last spring. Since then, we have become wonderful friends, which made it even more fun for us to document their wedding!
Anna stunned us all with her custom-made ruffle-happy gown. It even brought her groom to tears. And we're not talking about the one-drop-on-the-cheek kind--he was genuinely choked up throughout the entire ceremony, swollen eyes and all. It made the ceremony that much more intimate, special, and real....and of course, we loved it (smile). When we become friends with our couples, it means we understand their emotions that much better, and most importantly, we are able to capture what is truly meaningful to them. Knowing Jeremy, we knew those tears were true (he never cries!). It almost made us cry, too.
We can honestly say that Anna and Jeremy have found their soul mates. They know how to make each other smile. They teach each other how to love. And they share a lot of "laugh wrinkles" from making each other's lives that much more colorful. Congratulations, you beautiful couple! We're so honored to be able to call you friends and have shared in such a memorable day in your lives
