Jennifer & Robert | Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden Wedding

Congratulations Jennifer and Robert! Jennifer is one of the "suite " brides who purchased her gorgeous gown by Lea-Ann Belter at my wife's shop The Ivory Suite. This endearing couple had the most heartfelt wedding at the beautiful Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach. They had a butterfly release during the ceremony, and the most amazing thing was that three of the butterflies remained on her bouquet throughout the night after being transferred from her gown and his tux. The three butterflies represented their parents, as they were smiling down on them from above. [gallery link="file" columns="1" orderby="title" size="full"]

South Pasadena Strings Program

I had the privilege of working with Susan Pascale, the Director of South Pasadena Strings Program, to take some portraits of her daughter and students. These kids are so precious with their instruments, and truly have a lot of talent. They will be going to Carnegie Hall in April 2009 which is very exciting! The boys will be wearing little penguin tuxes purchased from my wife's bridal shop The Ivory Suite.

Amy & Brian | Seven Degrees Laguna Wedding

Congratulations Amy and Brian! Amy is one of our most delightful brides who had also purchased her stunning gown and flower girl dresses at my wife's bridal shop The Ivory Suite in South Pasadena, fabulously designed by Lea-Ann Belter. Their wedding venue was held at a gorgeous facility in Laguna Beach called Seven Degrees. Everything was top notch with each detail down to perfection (mostly due to Amy's mom who worked so hard to put everything together)! This beautiful couple will always be very close and dear to our hearts. [gallery link="file" columns="1" orderby="title" size="full"]
