A Nature Inspired Wedding in the Heart of LA

LA River Garden Center Wedding_Vivian Lin Photography_01I adored Joyce from the moment I met her.  Well-spoken, thoughtful, and kind (not to mention beautiful!) I thought her fiance was a lucky man.  I didn’t get to meet Anthony until the engagement session, since he lives all the way in Minnesota.  And when I met Anthony, I thought Joyce was just as lucky!  Anthony is sweet, romantic, patient, and good-natured.  I knew all this from my relatively brief time with them.  Their friends and family have always known this, and really made them the stars of the day.  From their phenomenal grand entrance, to being carried on shoulders countless times, to the moving speeches, their community came together and truly celebrated the awesomeness that is Joyce and Anthony.LA River Garden Center Wedding_Vivian Lin Photography_02 LA River Garden Center Wedding_Vivian Lin Photography_03 LA River Garden Center Wedding_Vivian Lin Photography_04 LA River Garden

SFV Backyward Wedding_SF_Vivian Lin Photo_159

Stefanie and Francisco have more than their fair share of astounding qualities: they’re both intelligent, creative, down-to-earth, compassionate, worldly, and I had a sneaking suspicion they would know how to throw a mad awesome party.  Where do I start?  Wedding timelines written for all to see on butcher paper?  Genius!  Detailed and whimsically decorated chalk signs?  Yes!  Elaborate bouquets and boutonnieres handmade by the bride?  Wow.  Backyard games to entertain guests?  Check.  An umbrella dance, where guests throw streamers over an umbrella, under which the couple is slow dancing?  So romantic!  And quite possibly, a thousand cranes.  This eclectic and fun-filled celebration is a wedding after my own heart, where fun, friends, and family definitely dominated the theme of the day.

An Intimate Wedding Weekend

Pasadena Wedding_JL_Vivian Lin Photo_01

Jennifer and Leslie had woven their lives together long before the day they actually tied the knot.  The celebration started with an intimate backyard BBQ, catching up with their dearest friends and family while the gorgeous dusk light set in.  The next day, Jennifer and Leslie were married at the beautiful All Saints Church in Pasadena.  Afterwards, the wedding weekend continued on the Tap Room patio of the Langham.  I would say that every moment was spent with someone who meant something to these two, but I’ll let the photos do the talking.
