We are so incredibly blessed by our career in wedding and engagement photography. It allows us to constantly be meeting couples that are head over heals for each other. It gives my wife and I an even greater appreciation for each other. Each and every couple we are blessed with the opportunity to work with reminds us of the true beauty of love. Ariana and Martin's wedding was no exception. This lifetime of commitment had it's beginning on December 26th 2015, days before the year came to it's close.
Ariana and Martin began their love story with a candle lit proposal in Mexico. Now here they are in front of our lenses, God, and their families promising to love each other forever. The day began with a few moments at our bride's hotel room at the Weston. We were so grateful for this time and the images it gave. The images featured window-lit shots of her stunning dress, soft images of her jewelry adorned in florals, and moments shared between mother and daughter that will be remembered for a lifetime. Before we knew it, the limousine had arrived and our bride was being whisked away to St. Phillip the Apostle Church for the ceremony.
The beauty of St. Phillip the Apostle Church was only out shined by the that of our bride. The high white ceilings and stunning candelabras gave light to the sacred sacrament of matrimony that was taking place. After a lovely precessional and a number of heartfelt traditions the vows were exchanged. Soon the two turned to face their family for the first time as man and wife. This ceremony is one we will not soon forget. After a few minutes of greeting the newly weds were once again in their limousine. This time headed to Pasadena City Hall for their bridal portraits.
After the portraits our lovely couple headed to their stunning reception hall at The Grand. The two were first taken to their bridal suite. Their guests quickly settled in and enjoyed the live entertainment. The two had their grand entrance and went right into a heart warming first dance. There they were, Ariana and Martin dancing for the very first time as husband and wife. The two then sat down for a delicious meal at their candle lit sweet heart table. From the cake cut to the unique donut station the evening was filled with laughter and dancing.
We are truly blessed to have been part of this amazing couple's love story. Their day was one filled with beauty and love. From the first light filled bridal image to the final images of the live and loud mariachi band. This wedding is one we will remember forever. Thank you Martin and Ariana. May God richly bless you and your love forever.
