Alyson • Johnny: the wedding

08.16.2008 | the Westin Pasadena, PASADENA

Alyson and Johnny, their wedding day finally arrived. I remember, on Friday's evening, I stopped by at the Westin hotel, to pick up the couple's photo frame for their eSession photo picture, again, like most of all bride and groom, it's one of the last minute thing! I was in the elevator with Johnny on the way to his room to pick up the frame, I asked him, how's everything? Ready for the day tomorrow? Were you nervous? He gave one of the best answer that I've heard from a groomsman. He said whatever happens tomorrow, good or bad, it will still be a good day. Wow! That's the spirit! It's awesome!

We started the coverage around 11:00am, thank you to both Alyson and Johnny, I could sleep a bit longer, :) Alyson did her makeup at MAC in Pasadena, which is 2 blocks away from the hotel and then came back to the hotel room, where Yuri did her hair design. The couple decided not to meet until the ceremony. So, we spent a good enough time to photograph both the groom with his groomsmen and the bride with her bridesmaids. I had my associate Lia and my guest photographer, a friend of mine, Gilbert to come help out. Gilbert specializes in portrait photography.

The ceremony was super quick! I believe about 10 minutes, in and out. Yet, it's beautiful. It's at Pasadena City Hall. We then proceed with the family group photos and quite a rush to do both Alyson and Johnny photo shoot, since we didn't have any yet. The location both the city hall and the Westin hotel is awesomely beautfiul. There are tons of opportunities to take pictures, but there are so little time, ouchhhh.... But, we managed it well. We ran back to the Westin for the grand entrance at 6:40pm. The banquet lasted until 12 midnite. Congratulations to both Alyson and Johnny! Thank you for inviting my Galleries and myself to get to know both of you and be part of your beautiful day, :) More posting of the photos is coming.
