woodland hills country club golf course

I’m so excited to share this wedding!  Nina and Felix were recently married under a gorgeous gazebo at the beautiful Woodland Hills Country Club.  The golf course grounds are just breath-taking and perfect for formal bridal portraits.  Perhaps the best part of the day (for me) was the opportunity to photograph Nina and Felix’s sweet pup that was part of the wedding ceremony!  He is definitely their fur-baby so I made sure to capture lots of photos of his adorable face.  It’s pretty rare to find dog friendly wedding venues in Southern California, so I was beyond ecstatic when I learned he would be there.

Nina and Felix’s wedding was just the right size and included their nearest and dearest.  I love how enthusiastic Felix’s groomsmen were.  They had so much energy throughout the day!  Felix’s friend was the officiant and he insisted on doing a selfie with Felix right before Nina walked down the aisle!  I thought that was so funny.  The reception was wonderful and full of great speeches from many of their wedding guests.  I love it when they open up the toasts portion of the evening and invite anyone and everyone to say something special to the bride and groom.  The wedding is a day to receive love from your loved ones, and Nina and Felix’s friends definitely showered them with lots of kind words!

The staff at Woodland Hills Country Club were so accommodating and friendly.  They took care of all of the wedding guests and even us wedding vendors so it was a joy to work there.  Check out these photos from Nina and Felix’s special day.  :)

Can I just say how incredibly gorgeous these two are?  I had so much fun taking photos during their formal portrait time.  I love the two images above, and especially this timeless portrait of Nina below.  Isn’t she just flawless?!

I’m so happy for this sweet, sweet couple. Lorena and Demetrio were married several years ago and I had the honor of photographing their engagement session and wedding day. It’s amazing to have the opportunity to meet and watch my couples grow, fall deeper in love and commit their lives to each other. And it’s even more incredible to document their lives as they take their next steps and start little families.

They are expecting a baby girl and I couldn’t be more happier for them! Demetrio is the most devoted and caring husband. He was constantly helping her around during our maternity photo session and kept saying how beautiful and gorgeous she looked. Even at nine months pregnant — I know I would not get tired of hearing that compliment! Their little girl is definitely going to be treated like a princess! Demetrio will be the best dad because he is already one of the best husbands out there.

Congrats again Lorena and Demetrio! Looking forward to meeting your precious one when she arrives.:)

Klennalyn and Vincent’s wedding day started off with a traditional Catholic mass ceremony at Saint Robert Bellarmine Church in Burbank and was followed by a lovely reception at the nearby Burbank Castaway Restaurant.  I mentioned this previously when I blogged their engagement photos — but they’ve actually been married for five years already and wanted to finally have a real wedding because their first wedding was a casual elopement at city hall.  I thought this was a fabulous idea because I think everyone deserves to have their dream wedding if that’s what they really want.  :)

Can I just say how much I love Klennalyn’s dress?  I couldn’t stop admiring the delicate lace and beading on her bodice, the off-shoulder sleeves, and all of the ruffles in her skirt and train. She had it custom made to her liking and I thought that was so neat because I have had several people ask where she got her dress from.

Before heading over to the church — they decided to do a first-look before the ceremony and I love this option because it gives us so much time after the ceremony for family and guest photos. The bride and groom even had the opportunity to enjoy some of their cocktail hour.  Hope you enjoy this snippet from their anniversary celebration!

This beautiful wedding actually took place last year!  I’ve been shooting and editing so much that blogging has kind of been pushed onto the back burner for a bit.  So I’ll be posting a lot of these older weddings in batches in the upcoming weeks.  :)

Janet and Edgar were married at the California Country Club in Whittier.  It’s a relatively hidden venue but totally worth the visit if you’re looking for an affordable wedding venue in the San Gabriel Valley.  I was so surprised to see how big and expansive the ceremony area was and how gorgeous the golf course is!  Janet and Edgar had an outdoor Catholic mass ceremony on the front lawn of the country club and it was a beautiful overcast day. They chose to do their formal portraits closer to the sunset time and we were able capture amazing photos with magical light.

Their reception was so lively with a traditional Mexican wedding dance (La Vibora de la Mar) where wedding guests form a line and run under the bride and groom (who are standing on chairs).  The dance ends with all of the male guests picking up the groom and tossing him into the air. There’s so much energy and excitement! Be sure to click through to the reception photos at the end of this post to see all the fun!
