It was a gloomy Saturday morning and it was a perfect day for a A Fall Irwindale Wedding!
The fresh air was crisp and I knew we would have cool weather for Lorenzo and Violeta’s wedding at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. It’s always so sweet watching the groom anticipate watching his future bride walk down the aisle for the first time. Lorenzo was a bit nervous and was pacing around the back of the church which is normal for grooms! I had already seen and photographed Violeta in her beautiful wedding gown from Saint Clark’s Bridal Suite. I loved the perfect and elegant lacing detail her dress had and her veil was the perfect touch.
After their beautiful Catholic Ceremony we headed over to Irwindale Park to photograph their fun bridal party. Even though we had gloomy weather it allowed me to have really pretty light for their portraits. I really loved that this particular area we chose had a pretty water fountain and palm trees!
We then drove to Violeta’s parent house for their private reception. It’s always so nice when couples choose to celebrate their marriage at their parents home if space allows. I think it’s such a memorable experience for the family! Violeta chose to have sage green leafs with candles as her centerpieces and it was so pretty!
As the day went on I realized how well Lorenzo, and Violeta balance each other out. I noticed that Lorenzo is very laid back and goes with the flow. Violeta is much more of a planner and takes action and both are great qualities! from the day Violeta found me on Instagram she has been so sweet and easy going.
I LOVE when my couples, and particularly my brides trust me. It makes me love my job even more when they know I have their best interest and that I am there to serve them.
Violeta, and Lorenzo it was an absolute pleasure being a part of your special day! I loved getting to know your family and friends and feeling like I was a part of your day and not just “the photographer” thank you for making me feel welcomed and for trusting in us to capture your beautiful wedding day!
