Good from Huntington Beach everyone! You may have seen the quick peek of what was to come from their wedding day before I left for Hawaii, but now that I’m back & the dust has settled, here’s the rest of the story…
Back in December I got my first glimpse of how much fun I would have with Leah & Darrell from their Engagement Shoot I did with them in downtown Long Beach back in December and was I so right. Their wedding was AMAZING!
Their day started off at the Sheraton Fairplex in Pomona where Kerry and I showed up to capture some great candid photographs while Leah and her ladies in waiting got ready. It was such a great time filled with laughs and lots of love shared with Leah and her family.
After the ladies were ready, we headed down to get our glam on for some killer portraits. They seriously rocked it not to mention taking over the bar at the hotel too. But eventually we needed to head to Diamond Bar Center to meet up with Darrell as we shot some album-cover inspired portraits and a “pose off” too. I think that Darrell’s brother took the trophy on that one!
The ceremony was beautiful with the weather holding back the rain for us accompanied with a nice breeze that even whisked Leah’s veil away during the ceremony which was really cute.
The reception was held inside with a pasta bar, a hamburger & cheeseburger bar and many other fantastic fixings that made for a wonderful meal that everyone could enjoy. Joe Paxton from Atmosphere DJ Professional Entertainment & Lighting kept the night moving and I even had the opportunity to work with Mike again from Mission Visual Videography.
Darrell even serenaded Leah with his saxophone alongside his men, which had everyone teary-eyed. It was one of the most special gifts I have seen in a long time!
Today was a special day for me and it was such an honour to work side-by-side with Leah too, because her and her sister; Linsey run a very successful Wedding Coordinating company called The Double Knot Twins.
I hope you have a great evening & I hope you enjoy the sample of what’s to come of their day as much as I did capturing it – cheers!
