Oh gosh! I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow and was working on this edit today and just HAD to post some of these before I leave town! I LOVED this wedding and can’t tell you how much I was in love with the back of Deborah’s gorgeous gown! Casa Real was the venue and Katherine of Custom Celebrations was the fab. coordinator. Taylor Pham did hair and makeup. More when I return on the 30th!
Sigh. Gorgeous! More to come and off to the midwest for a week and mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary!

Congratulations to Laura and Dave! I went home the night of their wedding and told my husband the day was a total “love-fest” for me! Honestly. So much love between family, friends, Laura and Dave, I loved everyone, I loved everyone on the vendor team and it just went on and on. It was a great day! The wedding and ceremony were at Temple Isaiah in Lafayette, CA, the wonderful coordinator was the ever attentive Michelle Kimmons, I always love working with Barbara Llewellyn Catering, the florals were by Anne Mendenhall Flowers and the always amazing Katrina Rozelle did the cake.
This is my favorite tradition of any wedding. In Jewish weddings, the bride and groom circle each other seven times before going under the Huppah. There are always seven blessings in the Jewish ceremony and I think this tradition when the ceremony starts is so sacred and wonderful:
I couldn’t have one, but those mojitos sure looked good!

What do you do when it turns dark and stormy during the engagement shoot? Use it to your advantage! Jodi loved the shoots I did for Deborah and Kwong and Gena and Ryan, so we went to the same locations and got a different look! We had a blast on this shoot and I’ll look forward to their July wedding at Kohl Mansion!
Loooooved Jodi’s boots!

I love traditional ethnic weddings and am always amazed at the variety of weddings I photograph! Ethnic weddings are always so festive and full of ceremony. George and Carole were married at the Cathedral of the Ascension in Oakland, CA and they were such a nice couple to work with. Both so calm! What a wonderful wedding!
I loved the little gold bridesmaid’s purses. They echoed the bride’s:
One tradition is for the family of the groom to come and welcome the bride. They do an interesting sound with their tongues in addition to singing:
I always direct my assistant to shoot from the balcony if there is one and Breck got this great shot utilizing the flash from my camera down below:
Pretty all in white theme:
Love the Greek tradition of throwing money!
This little guy had all the moves on the dance floor!
