Ashley + David ~ Westridge Golf Club
Rain. It is nice because it brings with it a cloud cover so photographers don’t have to worry about the glare from the sun penetrating the pictures. It isn’t so nice because it gets items and people wet. Luckily for Ashley and David’s wedding, we really didn’t have to encounter the rain until five minutes into the ceremony. I had already taken a lot of the formal shots prior to the start of the ceremony, so I wasn’t that concerned. I had a plastic bag over my camera and I was prepared for whatever the sky had to pelt down on me.
Speaking of the formal shots, I did a lot of the pictures at a multicultural center adjacent to the Embassy Suites in Brea. The multicultural center offered a unique background for the bridesmaids and groomsmen pictures, as well as an intimate setting for the first look. The couple was a lot of fun to work with, which makes my job that much easier.
Ashley and David had several guests from Hawaii. I found this ironic since I’m accustomed to hearing about people traveling in the opposite direction over the Pacific Ocean to go on vacation or attend a wedding. The wedding also had one stellar and delicious dessert table. Each delicacy was thoughtfully planned out and arranged. It had the current trend in special events, cake pops, while also giving guests a large variety of other sweet goodies to choose from.
