Heder and Chris, Wedding

It was a beautiful, spring day in March.

The sky was a perfect shade of blue and the sun was warm and welcoming.

Everything was to fall in line for this bride and groom who planned carefully for this day.

This day that they waited a long time for…

We started off at the iconic Normadie Hotel where Chris and the guys dressed.

Sipping champagne, pandora was delivering the best music in this moment…

 She finished her makeup and had one last ‘ hooray’ shot before she’d slip her dress on and make her way to the Carondelet House where they would say “I do” and celebrate the occasion.

Heder and Chris paid special attention to every detail to ensure it was a perfect reflection of their love and their story. The Carondelet House was a perfect location to capture their vision and make it come to life.

Caroline Cha and her team with Serenity Events  were flawless, ensuring each part of this day happened perfectly. Rustic tables draped with roses, candles, and crystals.

Roses that hung from above with brick draped in the backdrop… it was an amazing setup. blog-27blog-212016-04-02_0010blog-242016-04-02_0011blog-26

These two made a beautiful bride and groom.

Their ceremony was simple, yet heartfelt and emotional.

And their reception was just as amazing.

Veronica and Jose’s Christmas Wedding.

Veronica and Jose found me on The Knot. We met on a summer day and over coffee, they described their Christmas wedding that would take place just a few days before Christmas. As we talked, I quickly realized that these two were ridiculously cute and their chemistry would be easy to capture.

Throughout the months of planning and while we were shooting their engagement session, I learned that Jose had a daughter. As Veronica talked about her, the love that she had for not only Jose but also for his daughter was very touching. I was anxious to place a face to this little girl. She was even prettier then I imagined. Veronica made sure to include her in all that she and her bridesmaids did on her special day.

Throughout their day, both Jose and Veronica were calm, collected, and of course – excited. Moments before their first glance, the emotions built and I must say, this was the most heart-felt first glance of our season.

A beautiful, California December wedding. I think this image below captures that…

The ceremony and reception was at the beautiful Michaels Tuscany Room in San Pedro, California.  Walls twinkling with white lights, overgrown greenery, and warm rustic brick, you feel like you are walking into a restaurant in Italy. This venue did a fantastic job capturing the essence of Jose and Veronica’s Christmas wedding.

Lety + Norma ; Long Beach Wedding

Through the years of relationships, dating, and hoping to find ” The One” … Lety scrolled through the pictures on Match.com until she saw one that caught her attention. Reading through her profile, she sent sweet Norma a note.

Norma would take a few days to answer but when she did, their conversations flowed and they both felt as if they had known each other for years. They finally set a date to meet.

Nervous to meet, but anxious and excited, they both watched the clock in anticipation. Norma arrived early so that she could watch Lety walk in. And that, she did. Lety fixed her collar and smoothed her hair… heart racing with excitement until she walked into the restaurant and their eyes locked. Lety’s first thought was… ” My Norma! ” This night would forever change their lives, their love, status, and future.

As we planned their very special wedding, Norma requested that she walk before Lety so that like on their first date, she would see Lety walk in.

Now 18 months later, on a beautiful September day, Lety and Norma wed before their closest friends and family. A night that was filled love, laughter, tears and joy.

SWP sends all of our love to these two special people who found each other. We were ever so grateful to have been apart of this day in their lives. We wish you love, happiness, and health forever and always. Cheers to love… for all!

.love.

Congratulations Jennifer and Anthony!

Enjoy!

Kena + Billy, Wedding

I met Kena and Billy through another fabulous couple whose wedding we documented last year.

I knew that their wedding would be amazing and I was so excited to work with them.

What I didn’t know was how emotional their day would be.

The love these two have for each other, the love their friends and family have for them…

We throughly enjoyed each moment.

Enjoy!
