“just like a star”
I think it’s only fitting that I post Luci & Ernesto’s lovely winter wedding this week. It has been raining up a storm in Los Angeles lately, and the only other time it rained here in the past several months was on Luci & Ernesto’s big day. Despite the rain, Luci & Ernesto were all smiles on their wedding day and clearly did not need the rain to bring them any good luck :). These two are so charming and perfect for one another and besides, they are both fellow Bruins! 🙂 This was my first wedding with rainy conditions and I have a new, profound respect for photographers not from sunny Southern California. Rain or shine, the show must go on and so beautifully it did :). Congrats to my favorite Bruin couple: Luci & Ernesto! Can I get an 8-clap for the newlyweds?!
A special gift Luci got for her man:
Such gorgeous details on Luci’s gown:
I heart purple shoes.
And I just heart getting ready shots. Don’t forget to schedule photography time for this ladies!
Classic cars are cool.
The church ceremony was held at the lovely St. Peter & Paul Church:
It’s all about the details, right?! 🙂
In search of dry areas, we ventured to nearby Pomona College for some great shots. I just adored Luci’s purple bouquet by Wisteria Grove!
The complete wedding party all decked out:
Of course I made them go outside and of course with the UCLA umbrella-ella, ella, eh, eh, eh 🙂
And while the ladies wanted to stay dry (I don’t blame them), the fellas were a little more adventurous:
Please note that while my couple is in the rain, so am I! And David…who is not only good at holding my bags, but also my umbrella :). I kid, I kid.
Off to the reception at the lovely Doubletree Hotel in Claremont.
A loving moment between Luci & her father:
