Alvina and Daniel’s wedding 6.22.13

Alvina and Daniel are young, sweet, loving and very dedicated to being Christians. In fact, with the help of friends, Daniel surprised Alvina with his proposal on Church grounds! This is the first wedding where I left early and entrusted my team to conduct the reception. They handled everything with class and professionalism. Kayla, KDWP lead coordinator, even helped the groom when he was uncomfortable during the reception because of the cramped space and guests surrounding him.

I had the pleasure to work with Steve Hoffmann of Hoffmann Photographer who captured beautiful images of the wedding.

The wedding party started at the Fullerton Arboretum for a First Look and portraits.

While the wedding party was taking pictures, my team and I were setting up the ceremony site.

One of the candle holder broke during transportation so I had to use tape to stick everything together. I was so nervous the whole ceremony, afraid that the tape wouldn’t hold and the candle will be knocked off. Thankfully, everything held together.

After the ceremony in Costa Mesa, I drove to Rowland Heights for the reception. It was a bit stressful trying to seat guests as some unexpected guests showed up. Our team worked fast on accommodating every one of  them in a very tight restaurant.
