Grace & Aaron
Wedding at The Athenaeum in Pasadena, California
In March I traveled to California for Grace and Aaron’s wedding at The Athenaeum at Caltech in Pasadena, California. Their day was fun and filled with personal touches. Grace and Aaron got super lucky with the weather on their wedding day. It wasn’t raining during the first look and right after it was raining and it stopped right before their outdoor ceremony! Then it only started up again once the reception was inside... how perfect!
Working in the academic world, they both have moved to few different cities before landing at Caltech in Pasadena, California. Their wedding was a perfect celebration that brought their families from all over the country to one location! Throughout the entire day it was so obvious how close they are to their family and friends, it was such a joy to photograph their emotional moments!
Grace and Aaron are both researchers at Caltech, which is why they chose The Athenanum. Holy smokes! What a gorgeous venue! I also loved that they included personal touches like robots and crystals, since Aaron works on robots and Grace works in geochemistry! How cool!!
Katrin & Philip
Wedding in Long Beach, CAlifornia
Over Labor Day weekend, I flew out to Long Beach, CA to photograph Katrin and Philip's wedding. When I first met them a month before the wedding and they described all the elegant details, I instantly knew that this wedding was one for the books! From the vintage style of their reception hall, to Katrin's dress and bouquet, and to all the details in-between, their special day was a dream!
Katrin and Philip got ready in separate locations, keeping their first look special as Katrin walked down the aisle of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. Afterwards, we explored a bit of Long Beach to capture their bridal party and photos of just Katrin and Philip. Boy! They made my job easy because their love was so easy to photograph!
They gathered their family and friends at the Loft on Pine, their reception venue. To end an amazing day, their reception was filled with great dancing! Their family and friends were by far one of the funniest groups to photograph! The children, their parents, their friends, and everyone in-between was on the dance floor and they sure knew how to jam out!
Congrats Katrin and Philip! Here's to many, many years of love and joy!
