Good morning from the caffeinated HQ of Starbucks… er… I mean Esquire Photography in Orange County everyone! HeHe! I’m one Newport Beach Wedding Photographer who is totally MEGA over Araceli & Daniel’s Pasadena wedding I recently had the honour of photographing.
With all the exciting Engagement Shoots, Portraits, Quinceañeras, and weddings happening from Newport Beach down to San Diego and all the way up to Fallbrook – you’re going to absolutely love Love LOVE all the details Araceli & Daniel put into their wedding day.
Araceli & Daniel’s wedding ceremony was beautiful at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Temple City. Stained glass, floral arrangements by Mr. Tom Larson at Rose City Flowers, rich oak and an enourmous building with bright light was everything a traditional ceremony deserves.
After their wedding ceremony & portraits – we all headed over to Brookside Golf Club, where we were welcomed into the reception all by Mr. Ben D. Goldberg for a terrific entrance to kick off the party. Which BTW was awesome and I think you’ll have a sense of the great times we had throughout the night!
Araceli & Daniel’s Pasadena wedding day was filled with laughter, a yummy cake from Cakery Bakery, romance and tons of fun throughout the reception. I even was able to capture some of my Signature Night Romantic portraits of them, except during the day – which was totally fun working with the sun & all the awesome rays and backlight we were beging given.
I would like to give a special shout out to Ms. Stephanie Duran – the Catering Sales Manager at Brookside Golf Club for ensuring the Araceli & Daniel’s wedding was totally perfect. She and her team of professionals rolled out the red carpet for everyone and treated them like royalty.
I’ve put together a romantic slide show of a few of my favourites from Araceli & Daniel’s Pasadena Wedding at their church & the Brookside Golf Club below. But before you scroll down to check it out and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Newport Beach Wedding Photographer (Previously a Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer) that loves music & fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime. Perhaps you’re a fan of Nachos & Newcastles (My favourite snack!) like Duran Rex and I & if so – we could always meet at Fred’s Mexican Cafe on Main & PCH in Huntington Beach. They’re out of this world at Fred’s!
I hope you’re having a great start to your holiday season & stay in touch for some more absolutely incredible events that I’m sharing this week. From San Diego to Newport Beach and all the way up to Ventura – I’ll have some fantastic Weddings and events that I’ve had the honour of photographing. And of course soon to come; the Darvoset performance where Kate Mesta provided some “One of a Kind” jewelry (which I’m sure you saw from Darvoset’s photo shoot) and be sure to check out the Huntington Beach Photo Shoot of Sarah for her portfolio for The Ford Modeling Agency – Cheers!
PS, I’m guessing you probably saw recently on Twitter & Facebook the two very HUGE announcements I shared this past weekend. One of which is the Military Promotion that launched on Saturday. I had the honour of giving it to Ali & Justin when I was up at Edward’s Air Force Base with both of their parents location scouting and going over details for their Lancaster Wedding Day I’m photographing next August. The other HUGE announcement I shared is the Workshop I’m teaching with my good friend & fellow photographer Danny in Paris France. Can I just say; “Wholly Nachos & Newcastles!” So if you’re in Paris over Christmas break, totally let me know because the workshop is very affordable & only 100 Euros per person.
PS, Check out these awesome quotes I shared earlier on Twitter keeping the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity.
