Couldn’t help but post a quick sneak peak from this gorgeous wedding held in Pasadena and Diamond Bar. This wedding had a true Chinese-American flavor, an eclectic fusion of the traditional Chinese tea ceremonies held with the each family and the very modern and upscale Pacific Palms Hotel in City of Industry, all before before heading to a fun traditional Chinese reception at New Capital Seafood in Rowland Heights. What made this a memorable day for us was just how laid back, genuine, and real Minda and Jason were- and how the day had so many little details that marked who they were as a couple- it was really a joy to be a part of their celebration.
We had the unique privilege of being a part of Jonathan and Helen’s lives before this whirlwind journey of wedding planning began, and ended at this beautiful church in Glendale. Being able to spend the last few months with them preparing for this day was an amazing perk of the job. Truly some fun times, and exciting to once again shoot at this church. J&H are just an amazing and loving part of our IBC church family and such humble and giving individuals- this day could not have been any better, or more sweet.
Handmade invitations and calligraphy by the bride, gorgeous flowers by the wonderful Yingka Chou, DIY cuteness all over the place, and even something blue, what more could we ask for? A charming Villa in the heart of Sierra Madre and such creativity from the bride and groom really made this such a sweet, rustic affair. On a personal note, we were so overwhelmed by how genuinely kind and trusting K&Y were, and we will always have a special place in our heart for that late night meal over ultimate grilled cheese sandwiches, swapping stories and talking about how amazing this day would be. We hope you are as inspired as we are…
