First United Methodist Church & Altadena Country Club Reception

After Pam and Larry’s fabulous engagement session in Santa Monica, I was certain that their wedding day would be amazing. And I was right! We started the day at Pam’s childhood home Glendale (only minutes from Pasadena). Vanessa Stump, my second photographer for the day, met Larry and the groomsmen at the Courtyard by Marriott in Pasadena.

Pam’s dress was crazy amazing! It was designed by a student at the Fashion Institute! When Pam was dressed and the guys dressed, we all drove over to the Tournament House and Wrigley Gardens in Pasadena. It was there that we set up a first look and Larry saw Pam in her wedding dress for the first time. The Tournament House was a great backdrop for a few creative photos before the ceremony. The wedding ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Pasadena, California. During that ceremony, the Officiant told a touching story of how Pam and Larry first met and fell in love. Everyone in the building was smiling or crying by the end of his tale. After the ceremony we took a few family portraits and left for Altadena Country Club for the reception. Larry played his guitar (he’s a real rock star) and we were treated to a piano solo by his mother. A great time was had by all!

Pam and Larry brought along their favorite reading materials. For folks who know them, Vogue and the business section of the LA Times typify Pam and Larry’s personality.
