Chemistry with each couple is really important to me, and Angela & Charles was a reminder of why I limit the number of weddings I take a year so that I can really personalize the experience for each couple. From our first meeting, to our walkthrough, to the super fun engagement shoot, we shared some good times together and great meals. I saw them through their planning, and they saw me through my growth. When their wedding day finally came around, I totally shared in the excitment and whole surrealness of it all.
Angela and Charles had a very touching and personal wedding. Even with nearly 400 guest, the entire day felt extremely intimate. The day started out with hair & makeup by makeupartist247. Yessenia & Cynthia did a fabulous job and Angela worked on memorizing her vows.
Meanwhile, bridesmaid and flowergirl got ready upstairs:
Together with Isabelle of Taylor Your Memories, Angela & Charles came up with their beautiful Spanish Tiles theme.
Then it was off to Rancho Capistrano, where Charles was also hard at working groom-ing up:
Her gorgeous Rene Caovilla shoes:
And super cute flower girl getting dolled up:
Isn’t she stunning?
And then time for photos! Gorgeous flowers by City of Commerce Flowers.
And then off to get married! It was such a sweet moment when Angela’s mom walked her down the aisle. That moment when Angela and Charles saw each other, they both broke out in tears. I was literally tearing behind my camera!
First kiss as husband + wife!
I love this candid moment of the mr. & mrs. walking down the aisle!
I love this moment I caught of them while Jonathan was taking wedding party photos:
And I totally love the bridesmaid dresses! (from Anthropologie)
And then some alone time:
And then off to the reception! Linens provided by Wildflower Linens.
And a sweet sweet moment during their first dance. Wasn’t it just the perfect setting?
And then a roll call picture on the dance floor! Jason from Visions Entertainment did a fabulous job, as always! In every event I have worked with Jason, he has run the show seamlessly. Any event where I know he’s DJ/emceeing, I know it will be a smooth night for me!

Just when we thought they were playing nice…
Congrats Angela & Charles on a beautiful and funfilled day! I am grateful to have met you two and look forward to seeing you embark this new journey together.
