Good Evening/Morning Everyone! I just got in from spending a 12 hour day with Xochilt & Cesar on their wedding day today. You might remember Xochilt & Cesar’s Photo Booth / Engagement Shoot we recently did over at L7 Studios with one of our Associate Photographers; Kerry – which was total blast. And, today was just the same, but WAYYYYYYY more of it. :-)
Their day started out at Xochilt’s mom’s home in Santa Ana, where she and her beautiful attendants all got ready. The minute everyone was perfect, we shot out to The Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton – where Duane & his impeccable staff were prepared to meet every imaginable need that Xochilt & her friends and family would need. I truly love coming back to The Muckenthaler every time – not only because of it being a wonderful location, the beautiful surroundings and the opulent view, but I had my own wedding there too. It truly holds a special place in my heart on so many levels.
Their wedding was a picture perfect mass that had such heavenly back light which created some amazing portraits. After their ceremony and some traditional and classic formal portraits, Xochilt, Cesar & I were able to do a bit of an “encore” shoot and we captured some of the most beautiful signature Artistic & Romantic portraits on The Muckenthaler’s great lawn & stairs in front.
The reception was filled with a mariachi band, covered with a tent and chandeliers and a candlelit table for their beautiful cake. As Albert & the team from Elegance Elegancia DJ & Lighting Productions kept spinning – Xochilt & Cesar’s party of about 150 guests went on until the late hours of the night to the point where Xochilt & Cesar did their best to escape and get on to their honeymoon – but not without much fanfare!
Here are a few of my favourites from their incredible day. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did capturing them – cheers!
