A warm fall day filled with laughter and happiness from the beginning to the end, marked Alessandra and Tom’s wedding. One thing is for sure, these two have some of the best family and friends anybody could ask for! Alessandra and Tom’s wedding took place on the campus of Occidental College in Eagle Rock California. One of Occidental College’s most notable attendees include former US President Barack Obama. The campus is filled with awesome spots for photographer’s to take advantage of and that’s exactly what we did. Here are a few of the highlights from the day.
Jennifer and Miguel’s relationship started out at Scripps Green Hospital were they worked together. Who would have thought we would all be celebrating their union in beautiful Napa Valley, California years later. I’d describe their wedding as a perfect blend of the casual and the elegant, with a killer band to boot. The ceremony was touching and very personal, Jennifer’s brother was selected to do the nuptials and did an outstanding job. There were a lot of unique details such as fantastic dishes prepared onsite by Touche Mobile Chefs. The food was prepared in a traditional South American style barbecue with empanadas and Choripan appetizers. If that was not enough, there was also wonderful Korean dishes provided by Roll Pop. I can’t even begin to describe the incredible people that we were surrounded by for this wedding. Jennifer and Miguel had family and friends join them from Korea, Massachusetts and Texas. One thing is for sure, they have some of the best family and friends anybody could ask for! We are so happy we got to share your special day with you and wish you many years of happiness!
Jin and Jason traveled north up the West Coast for their destination wedding in the beautiful Napa Valley. The ceremony was held at a local Napa church. The family’s winery played host to the elegant reception that featured samplings from the vineyard. Jin and Jason celebrated their Chinese and Korean cultures with a tea ceremony early in the day and a traditional p’ye-baek later in the evening. Here the bride offers dates and chestnuts — symbols of children — to the groom’s parents, while sitting at a low table filled with other symbolic offerings. The parents offer sake in return and, as a final gesture, they throw the dates and chestnuts at the bride, who tries to catch them in her large wedding skirt. Family and friends took to the dance floor and wrapped up a wonderful day.
