Park Hyatt Aviara Wedding: Lauren and Josh, Part Two

In Part One of Lauren and Josh's Park Hyatt Aviara wedding, the two stunning love birds said 'I do' in front of family and friends. What followed was a warmly lit ballroom with beautiful floral masterpieces on every table, speeches that made everyone cry - either from laughter or sentiment - and a dance party that had everyone on their feet.

Park Hyatt Aviara Wedding: Lauren and Josh, Part One

What happens in Vegas, sometimes turns into true love: this is what happened to Lauren and Josh who met in Sin City, dated long distance, and eventually settled together in San Diego. Carlsbad's gorgeous Park Hyatt Aviara provided the ideal backdrop for their wedding day, where prior to their ceremony, Lauren and Josh read love letters from the other and later opted to have a 'first touch,' joining hands with one another from opposite sides of a corner, making Josh seeing Lauren walk down the isle so very emotional.

Langham Pasadena Wedding: Julie and Young Kye

"I met someone, and she's really special" were the words Young Kye confessed to his best friend when he first began dating Julie after her friend and his cousin introduced them seven years ago. With a first look full of laughter and awe - Young Kye's reaction was of complete glee - the Langham Huntington Pasadena served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding portraits, followed by a touching ceremony at New Hope Church in Pasadena.

Julie and Young Kye: Thank you for being such kind individuals and allowing me to capture your day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! xo - Evelyn

San Gabriel Mission Wedding: Berenice and David

San Gabriel Mission Wedding: Berenice and David

The live band belted out merengue, cumbia, and salsa as David and Berenice, or Bere, to her friends and family, started in a closed hand position - his left hand in her right hand and his right hand on her left shoulder blade - and began to step forward and backward, all while moving their hips and smiling. He twirled her around, perfectly catching her back into his arms, only to dance faster, with more turns, and more laughter. Dancing the night away is how David and Bere began their first night as a wedded couple; they fit perfectly into each other's arms as dance partners as they do life partners.

When I photographed their engagement session, there was an undeniable chemistry between Bere and David, and the glow they exude when they are around each other only intensified the day of their wedding. Both Los Angeles area natives, they kept their ceremony and reception close to home at the historic San Gabriel Mission and Geregos Hall.

Bere and David, I love your love! Thank you for trusting me to capture your wedding day! Thank you for treating me like family and for being examples of what love looks like. I wish you both the absolute very best! xo, Evmo


The wedding day began at the Langham Pasadena, where Bere got ready alongside her Mom, sister, and two best friends, who all leant a hand in her preparation.

At the San Gabriel Mission, David saw his bride for the first time as she walked down the isle.

At their reception, with Bere's hand over David's heart, the newlyweds kicked off their first dance as husband and wife.

Once festivities were underway, David and Bere's nephews and niece hit the photo booth, David delivered a very special dance for his bride, and everyone was on their feet dancing.

Dancing is an integral part of David and Bere's relationship, and they each come from families who are not shy about getting down on the dance floor as exemplified by Bere's parents and David's Mom, below.

Bere and David, I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, lots of dancing, and amazing coffee :)

As the sunset behind them, the second half of Christina and Mark's wedding began: their ceremony, performed by two very close friends and former roommates of the couple, and their reception, where a number of loved ones poured their hearts out in adoration of the Christina and Mark. These speeches resulted in both bursts of laughter as well as heart felt tears.

Christina and Mark, cheers to you and your love! xo, Evelyn
