Good Evening! I just got in from an incredible day & wanted to share with you Dina & Christian’s wedding & it was absolutely fabulous!
There is so much love in their family and that is a great place to start! I arrived at Dina & Christian’s church; The Culver Palms Church of Christ in Los Angeles where the guys & gals were all getting ready and was able to get some snaps of a few details of the church and impromptu portraits of family & friends as well.
As soon as Dina arrived, the day took off like a rocket! Their ceremony was beautiful, the bridal party looked like a million dollars and with all the stained glass in the church – it made for a perfect wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony, we took some wonderful classic formal portraits with their families in the church & then headed to a local nearby park for some portraits of the guys and gals. We did make an attempt to go to the Manhattan Beach Pier, but the pier was TOTALLY out of control with all the beach combers. So we abandoned that idea & headed to the reception.
Their reception was held at the Matisse Restaurant Inside the Ayres Hotel in Manhattan Beach. And what an exquisite place to have your reception! Mr. Aaron Castaneda and his attentive team of professionals met every need of all the guests all the while treating the entire group like family. If you’re having your reception in Manhattan Beach, you should definitely call Mr. Castaneda & you won’t be disappointed (310.536.0805).
Dina & Christian had a lovely afternoon wedding and reception that gave me pleanty of opportunities for beautiful photographs. Here are just a few of my favourites from their day & I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did capturing them. Cheers!
