Back towards the end of January, I had the wonderful opportunity of shooting a wedding with the fabulous Sarah K Chen.  When I arrived, I found out the bride was actually my friend Ting’s sister, so I was even more excited to be there helping document the day!

The day could not have been more amazing!  The rain had subsided and the clouds had parted way for the sun.  The flowers were beautiful and every detail was simply perfection.  Connie looked absolutely stunning in her Monique Lhuillier gown.  And you could tell from the look in William’s eyes that he was soooo full of love for his beautiful bride.

Thank you to Sarah K Chen for having me along to shoot this incredible day with her.  Be sure to check out her blog to see the many, many beautiful images she took of their wedding day.  There are so many, in fact, that there are 3 posts!

I had a hard time choosing which pictures to post myself since there were sooo many that I loved, so apologies if it takes a while to load!

While Sarah took pictures of the girls getting ready, I photographed the guys.
William gave each of his groomsmen a gift bag complete with USC medallion cufflinks & argyle socks.

Connie & William chose to see each other before the ceremony. Here’s Connie on her way to see William for the first time that day.

Love this sequence…it’s so sweet!
We stopped for some pictures at Richard Nixon Library before heading to the ceremony.
Check out the bling on that ring pillow!
Probably one of my faves of the day (although there were many!).
There was a wish tree for the guests to leave their well-wishes for the couple.
Their wedding was right after the presidential inauguration, so it was kind of neat to be at the Richard Nixon Library amidst all the presidential memorabilia.
Candles were used as the seating cards.  A note in the frame reads, “Let these lights lead the way to your tables.”
Some of the gorgeous details.
The USC marching band made a surprise appearance!  All their USC classmates definitely enjoyed it!
William & Connie’s first dance
And a sweet father/daughter and mother/son dance.
