05/11/2011 -I love weddings because I get to experience different cultures and backgrounds! This was a wedding where people from all over the globe came to witness Susan & Devere celebrate their wedding day. I am so lucky to be able to work along my good friend and mentor Henry Chen (www.henrychenphoto.com) to be able to do document these experiences.
The day started off like usual, with myself covering the groom and Henry covering the bride. The guy’s were super chill and just having a good time together. We got ready and headed out to Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in San Pedro, CA. There we witnessed a very intimate and traditional catholic ceremony. Once that was done, we got ready to head over to the reception at the Renaissance Hotel in Long Beach. I love receptions because this the time you get to hear the fun stories of the groom and bride, watch the newly wed’s dance for the first time as husband and wife, and capture the essence of love between friends and family. Devere and Susan’s wedding encompassed all of those moments and more.
Congratulations Susan & Devere! Hope you enjoyed your time in Southern California!
