Good Afternoon Everyone! So what do you get when you combine a wedding photographer from Orange County, Palos Verdes Country Club in Ranchos Palos Verdes, The USC Trojan Marching Band and an amazing couple that I photographed for their Engagement Shoot at my “Secret Spot” somewhere in Southern California. You have the ingredients for a absolutely perfect wedding day.
I met up with Erin and her entourage at the Palos Verdes Country Club when she rolled up in a stretch limo from American Limo & as they were upstairs in the bridal suite, I was able to capture some fun and spontaneous moments with her family & friends.
While she was getting ready, I popped downstairs from time-to-time to capture pleanty of my “stalkerazzi” photos of family and guest showing up along with some shots of Ben & the guys popping around.
Their ceremony was held on the grand lawn overlooking the Los Angeles Valley and with a beautifully decorated chupah prepared for their wedding – it was perfect.
After Erin & Ben’s ceremony, the bridal party and family headed into the air conditioned fire place room (sounds wrong, I know!) for the signing of the ketubah along with some classic and traditional family portraits and a Beverly Hills 90210 inspired portrait of the bridal party.
In a flash, me, Erin & Ben stormed the beautiful rolling hills which provided me the best backdrop for my signature artistic and romantic portraits that I’m sure will be made into some beautiful canvas wraps for their home. I was also told that we had quite the audience from the patios overlooking the green where we were shooting – so I’m sure some family & friends snapped a few shots of us working our mojo.
After we came back in and their special dances and toasts were done, Erin’s father welcomed in a HUGE surprise for them and it was none other than the USC Trojan Marching Band! Sweeet!
Their reception was filled with laughter, tears of joy and a delicious cake by Rossmore Pastries shared with everyone that attended. I hope you enjoy their video and if you would like to order any gorgeous enlargements or canvas wraps from their wedding, you can register on Pictage or feel free to get in touch with me anytime.
A big nacho-inspired Thank You hug to fellow Fast Track Photographer; Danny Mendoza for being there in a clutch during the day and I hope you have a super week – cheers!
