When Mike and Angeline did their thank you toasts at their wedding, Angeline took to the mic and revealed that every single thing their guests saw at the ceremony & reception was planned by Mike.  Of course this left everybody in awe because their wedding was just breathtaking and to know that Mike had such a huge role in all of it was quite impressive!  After getting to know Angeline & Mike the past few months, I really wasn’t surprised at all that Mike was able to pull of this classic, elegant, beautiful, and fabulous wedding.  He has been involved the entire way along with choosing just the right locales for their engagement session…even driving by them to make sure they were okay on the day of the engagement shoot.  I know right??  What guy would do that?  Answer : Mike would.  I can say with 100% certainty that Angeline is in very good hands…and of course Mike is super lucky to have such a gorgeous & sweet wife in Angeline as well.  During the toasts, her maid of honor revealed that Angeline was the best girlfriend anyone could ever have…the kind of friend that would go on vacation to Taiwan and remember to bring you back your favorite Taiwanese donut…I need to get a friend like Angeline…lol!

It was great getting to know such special characteristics of both Angeline & Mike on their wedding day and I can’t wait to see what their future holds with the obviously great partnership these two have.  Angeline & Mike…hope you guys are enjoying Maui!!!  Thanks a billion for having me along this amazing ride with you!

Special thank you also to Elsa from Me Events & Design for introducing me to Mike & Angeline…you are awesome Elsa and the day went fantastically thanks to all of your hard work!!!

Now for some favorites…beware…lots of pictures ahead!

Angeline was just glowing that day…so beautiful!!

I loved how her dress had bling on the front and back…

Loved the bottom of her shoes…and the bows!

Her girls all looked amazing!

I love this dramatic stair case at the St. Regis!

Love these two below!  It was a bright day but made for some great back lit photos!

I was just in awe of the work from Nisie’s Enchanted Florist!!  So beautiful!

Pink just so happens to be one of my favorite colors :-)

I thought Mike looked quite dashing on his wedding day…love this shot of him making his way down the aisle!

These two little rascals were so adorable…check on the ring bearer’s Vans!

Love how happy Mike looks here :-)

The florals made such a gorgeous backdrop!!

This is my favorite moment of every wedding…I’m sure the couples feel the same way :-)

I adored the reception decor….love love love!!!

The dessert/candy bar spread was incredible…by far my favorite that I’ve ever seen!  The Hollywood Candy Girls did an AMAZING JOB!!!

I love white dance floors…they add just the right amount of pop!

LOL..this is one of the funnier moments of the evening when Mike’s childhood friend reminisced about the time Mike pushed his mom into the pool!!!

Mike’s reaction as he realized what his friend was about to divulge…priceless!!

The band really knew how to get the party started!!

LOL…I don’t know why I love this image but I do!

Thanks to the AMAZING vendors who all helped make Angeline & Mike’s wedding so amazing!!!

Wow…5 years already??!!  Where did the time go?  It’s amazing to me that I’ve been able to follow my passion for this long already and I can only hope to continue to do what I love for many more years to come.  I really really REALLY wanted to thank each and every one of my clients who have trusted me to capture this amazing, wonderful, awesome, life changing moment in their lives.

It is the greatest gift getting to share your wedding day with you and words will never be enough to show just how grateful I am to all of you.  From the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU!!!

I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane and share the slideshow of the first wedding I shot for Leena & Jommy (see below…you even get to see my very first logo that I designed myself…lol!).  I really have to thank them both for giving me the greatest opportunity to capture their big day…my career truly started after I shot their wedding and it’s been one heck of a roller coaster ride ever since.  You both will always have a special place in my heart!  xoxo
