I’ve really been looking forward to Pam and Larry’s wedding day. After their engagement session in Santa Monica, I was convinced that their wedding and reception would be one in a million. And I was right! I began the day (last Saturday) at Pam’s parent’s home in Glendale. Vanessa, my second photographer, met Larry and the guys at the Courtyard in Pasadena. As you can see from these photos, Pam’s dress was super amazing; it was designed by students at the Fashion Institute! As wedding photographers, it made our photography easy–the dress details really popped! The first photo below shows the hanging dress and Pam’s grandfather’s paintings in the background–two for one!
After everyone was ready to go, we left for the Tournament House and Wrigley Gardens in Pasadena (also known as the headquarters for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association) where Pam and Larry saw each other for the first time. It was a fabulous backdrop for creative photos before Pam and Larry’s wedding ceremony held at First United Methodist Church in Pasadena (on Colorado Boulevard). During the ceremony, I heard one of the best deliveries by any Officiant. He told the whole really entertaining story of how Pam and Larry met, fell in love, and how Larry eventually proposed; there were lots of grins all around! After the ceremony, Pam and Larry had super cool bubble exit. As you can see below, the guests REALLY liked blowing bubbles!
After a few formal family portraits, we left First United Methodist Church and drove over to Altadena Country Club in Altadena, California for Pam and Larry’s wedding reception. Lots of great food and drink were had by all.
