Mr and Mrs Ramirez

Alan knew from the moment he saw Vanessa that he was going to marry her.  And on June 19 he did just that.  Vanessa and Alan were married at the Clubhouse at Anaheim Hills Golf Course.  On a side note, I have special memories of this venue because I grew up going to Cotillion there and being forced to learn the Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha Cha with my now husband (along with other boys) and my table manners in elementary school and junior high :)  It has since been remodeled and looks gorgeous!

Enough about me.  Back to Vanessa and Alan!  There are two things that stuck out to me about their day.  First, I love how personal the whole day was.  Their friend Mike married them, which I loved!  It makes the ceremony so much more about the couple rather than when a stranger marries you.  He even borrowed his Mom’s bible for the occasion!  In lieu of favors for their wedding guests they made a donation to an animal shelter in their guests names because their dogs are such a huge part of their lives.  And instead of just one song for their first dance they had two.  One traditional and one fast paced Latin song.  They are great dancers!

The second thing that I remember about the day were the emotions.  Vanessa had a strict no tears policy and said that crying is for funerals, not weddings.  She tried very hard to hold it together, but I caught her crying on two separate occassions.  The first was when her sisters gave an emotional toast.  And the second was during the father daughter dance.  Both Vanessa and her father were trying so hard to hold back the tears!  It was a very sweet moment.

Thank you to Sheetal for referring Vanessa and Alan to me!  I have had a great time getting to know them both!  I hope the honeymoon to Jamaica was amazing!  Here’s the slideshow!

    I love the colors she chose! And that dress is gorgeous…….speaking of gorgeous, is it a requirement that all of your clients must be beautiful?!

  4. I love the shot of her on the bench in front of the window. Such a cool, modern way to get a “flowers in the background” shot. And your composition is perfect, where you positioned the frame of the window. Well done!

    I love this wedding– great colors in the flowers and bridesmaids dresses. I love the boys pictures (especially the ring bearer). The couple look like a beautiful match! Congrats to the bride and groom.
