The last month has been a total whirlwind. There was no better way to kick of the 2015 wedding season than Kimi & Andrew’s Crystal Marquis Ballroom Wedding last month! Filled with romance, laughter and LOTS of purple, Kimi and Andrew’s big day was absolutely magical.
When I arrived in the morning for bridal prep, Kimi greeted me at the door, calm as ever, with a huge smile on her face. I was so happy to see her so glowing and ready for the big day! I photographed her details while the bridal party buzzed around with excitement. Meanwhile my second shooter Marisa was over at Andrew’s family home capturing similar moments while he prepared for the day.
Then it was time for the first big moment of the day; We drove to The Santa Fe Dam Recreation Center for the First Look with Andrew. I always love the groom’s reaction when he see’s his bride for the first time, but I must say, Andrew’s reaction has got to be one of my favorites ever! He was blown away at the site of his gorgeous bride to be. We spent the afternoon photographing Kimi and Andrew, their closest friends and families until it was time to head to the ceremony to make it official! The ceremony was a simple, yet elegant and focused on bible principles for a good marriage. Lastly, we headed to the Crystal Marquis Ballroom in Whittier, CA to celebrate. Kimi and Andrew had a beautiful first dance and a few emotional dances with their parents before cutting into the cake. We ended the night with an epic group shot of all the reception guests cheering with excitement!
