Janet & Andy : Married!

October.29.2008 | Weddings

Janet and Andy were actually married a few months ago on the oh-so-popular date of 08.08.08. They had a civil ceremony with just a couple of their friends in attendance but knew they wanted to throw a party to include the rest of their family and friends. They had their reception at the beautiful Island Hotel in Newport Beach and it was a very fun day..especially for me! You see, Janet and Andy allotted lots of time for their bridal portraits which is ALWAYS nice since we can take our time, walk around, scope out some awesome picture-taking spots and most importantly, have fun!

Janet and Andy, thanks so much for having me at your wedding celebration! Now for some favorites!!!

Love this!

Love this too!

Janet & Andy had a cute little dance routine that impressed everyone!

I had to fight back tears when I saw Parvin on her wedding day. It had been over year from the day she had called me to tell me that life had taken an unexpected turn and she and James would have to postpone their wedding. I felt terribly and just hoped that I’d get a call from her sooner rather than later saying that the wedding was back on. Sure enough, almost exactly a year later, I get an email from Parvin asking me if I was still available to photograph their wedding! I was so happy and thrilled and so excited to see Parvin and James again.

So, when I walked into the room and saw Parvin for the first time, I was blown away as to how beautiful Parvin looked. I was happy to see her, she happy to see me…so much had happened that we were both happy to just be there…at her wedding!

All of the weddings I capture are special to me but Parvin and James’ was especially sweet for me, as well as the rest of their guests. We all knew the long road Parvin and James had travelled together and to see them finally joining their lives and becoming one was incredible.

Parvin and James…I am sooo incredibly happy for you both and am honored to have been one of the few to witness such a joyous occasion. I wish you only the best life has to offer!

The perfect spot for a ceremony…Parvin and James got married at their friends private residence in Dana Point right on the beach!

I just love this shot for some reason!

I swear…I don’t think I’ve seen a bride this incredibly happy! Parvin was just beaming!

First look as husband and wife…I love it!

I love this shot of James’ parents in the background looking so happy for their son and new daughter in law!

I love this shot…could they be any happier?!

I think Parvin looks like a Queen here!

This is quite possibly my favorite shot of the day!

I love that Parvin’s friends also wore the traditional attire!

Surrounded by friends, family, and lots of love :-)

Parvin would like to thank the following awesome ve
ndors for making her wedding to James truly spectacular!
