Langham Pasadena Wedding // Mona & Vince

Let the blog marathon begin!  I can’t believe I have not shared this wedding yet.  Carolyn Chen helped plan an amazing event for Mona & Vince at the Langham Pasadena in September.  I especially loved the ombre pattern and cultural traditions included.  Check out their SDE… but before you do, here is more about this awesome couple from the bride:

“Vince and I met in 2003 while attending church in St. Louis while we were there for graduate schools. He was a second year medical student at Washington University in St. Louis and I a first year law student at the same school. We actually only met a handful of times back then because I ended up not attending that church anymore. But the few times I remember of meeting him, I remember somewhat geeky Vince with his med student geek eye glasses, I remember looking at him through that and thinking ‘wow this guy is really genuine and sincere. I hope I can get to know him better.’ Unfortunately I didn’t get that chance then. We met again in 2011 through a friend’s facebook page. We added each other as friends (though “friend” would be an over statement at this point, more acquaintance) and soon after Vince sent me a message through facebook. I thought it was a short hello thing but we kept on messaging back and forth and I was very confused by the end. He was still in Ohio and I was in NJ so where is this going anyway? In my effort to wrap up the never ending facebook message marathon, I closed my message saying ‘give me a call when you’re in nyc or something’. To my surprise, he responded: “actually i’m going there in a couple of weeks lets meet up” So that’s how we met for the first time in 8 years, almost strangers but not quite, for dinner that was maybe a date or maybe just catching up – TBD. That night we had dinner and drinks and just talked until 2am on a Monday night. Then we met up again for drinks the next night and talked until 3am. The next day he left for Ohio to pack up to move to St. Louis but we stayed on the phone every night talking about everything until 4am and 5am and 6am, an hour longer each night. I’m not much of a phone person so it’s kind of a big deal that I was actually able and willing to do this. We soon began a long distance relationship knowing it would be difficult but also knowing that it would be worth it. “

Destination Wedding Haiku Mill, Maui // 16mm film

It’s rare that we shoot almost an entire wedding in 16mm film but I have to say, I really enjoyed this one! Normally we prefer to mix digital and film (if we are shooting film at all) but you can’t really go wrong with the gorgeous look of 16mm at this amazing venue.  Enjoy!

Montage Laguna Beach Wedding // Rikki & Adam

This wedding was just swimming in details… and white details at that.  The ballroom was draped (and by draped I mean floor to ceiling) in luxurious white.  Classic white Orchids were everywhere.  Even the lounge furniture was white.  In one word, I would call this wedding “absolutely stunning”.  Ok… that’s two words :) Here is Rikki & Adam’s story:

“We met in 2005, when we sat next to each other in a business class at USC. We ended up on a team together selling shoes in a virtual marketplace. (Ironically enough, just a few years later, we have ended up tying the “knot.”) What started as friendship blossomed into a beautiful cross-country relationship, when I moved to New York to get my pre-med degree. Adam, who was in law school, visited me in New York – there we laughed, ice skated, cooked, enjoyed jazz, got frost-bite, and soaked in all the romance that Manhattan had to offer. I eventually moved back to Los Angeles where I began medical school at USC.

Adam proposed to me on September 3, 2011 overlooking the ocean and cliffs in Laguna Beach. He surprised me with a couple’s massage followed by a beautiful lunch. After, Adam took me to a secluded nook at Crescent Bay Point Park, where my first words were, “It is so beautiful here – I am in heaven!” Shortly thereafter, Adam got down on one knee and proposed. He then surprised me by inviting our parents to share in a memorable weekend filled with surprises and special moments for everyone.

Whether traveling with family and friends, enjoying the beach, going to concerts or singing together, our love for each other grows stronger each day. We cannot wait to spend our forever together.” – Rikki
