On August 21, 2010, I had the privilege to once again assist one of Southern California’s Top Photographer, Henry Chen (www.henrychenphoto.com) for the wedding of Jennifer & Alex. This was my first wedding in the South Bay and I was excited to be part of this special day. The day started out at the beautiful Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach. It was a gorgeous day outside and that feeling of warmth just carried on into the hotel room where both the bride and groom were getting ready. Once everyone looked like models from magazines, we headed out down the road to Manhattan Beach for a traditional catholic ceremony at the American Martyr’s Catholic Church.
Afterwards, we headed out to the hills of Palos Verdes, to La Venta Inn for the reception. It was my first time at this location and just from the drive up to the restaurant, I knew it was going to be a spectacular place. Soon as you walk into the venue, it’s impossible to ignore the gorgeous view you get of the Pacific Ocean all the way to Downtown LA. The night was filled with great food, family and friends. It was literally one of those fairy tale weddings. Congratulations to Jennifer & Alex and a big thank you once again to Henry Chen.
