Hangar 21 Fullerton California was the reception venue for Camille & Vince’s wedding day. It was such a special one, especially for my wife Susanna who grew up with Camille her whole life! Camille is in fashion and her artistic and creativity were on full display from her wedding dress to the decor.
We spent the morning reconnecting a little bit, recording their card readings to each other as well as them opening their gifts for each other. Lots of tears were shed in the morning from Camille as she opened her gift and read her card to Vince. Her walk down the aisle at St. Denis Parish in Diamond Bar, California was especially special and touching.
We then arrived at Hangar 21 and got so excited to shoot some of the establishing shots and area. There were small aircrafts taking off and landing regularly and wondered where the helicopter would be. The bridal party arrived with the bride and groom and they all started to relax and have some drinks and relax during the bridal party photos. These were particularly fun because of the mix of color and large party. Before the grand helicopter entrance occurred, we began our walk with one of the venue staff and they gave us some quick instructions on where to be during and before flight take-off. You can’t tell, but those helicopter blades swooshing around at fast speeds right over was pretty terrifying. Not going to lie. FREAKED out. But I knew we would get some cool shots, so definitely the fear didn’t stop me.
Camille & Vince definitely looked calm and collected and so cool as they walked out of the helicopter and straight into the reception patio, right before making their grand entrance as newlyweds. Their first dance and parents dances were too sweet and the rest of the evening went off without a hitch with toasts, cake, money dance, bouquet & garter, and more dancing!
We were honored to have captured our friends’ wedding and Susanna was in tears all day as well seeing one of her best friends get hitched to the love of her life, Vince! Blessings to you two!
We had the privilege to capture, in the most romantic city in the world, Juliana & Paul’s Ritz Paris Destination Wedding! We actually captured the first look at dusk at the famous Trocadero steps with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
The sunrise light was beyond words and different than any light we experienced (or at least I think, haha). But it definitely was such a beautiful light at that time.
We were so so honored to have worked with Oliver Fly Photography who was familiar with the city and took Paul & Juliana near the steps while still maintaining the Eiffel Tower in the background.
They then got ready at the Saint Petersbourg Hotel followed by some portraits in front of the Ritz as well as in the back of the reception/cocktail hour room.
The official ceremony at the Ritz then occurred, followed shortly by the reception. It was such an intimate time with family and the events from the cocktail hour, toasts, and cake were such a treat, literally.
It was such an unforgettable time in the city of lovers and we are so honored to capture these memories for them! Enjoy the film above!
