Shane + Hillary were married on April 18th at the LDS temple in Redlands. You may recall their lovely faces from the engagement session I posted featuring them a few months ago. You may also recall me saying that Shane is my cousin and I that I always love shooting family weddings. Despite the slight case of anxiety (eek) to perform as best as I can, I definitely look forward to each time I get to capture such a wonderful day for people that I call family. 

Since Justin was away at Coachella and unable to shoot with me on this day I asked my other cousins Jason and Emily, the fab husband and wife duo team that make up Roger Ruth Photography, to help me out and they rocked it!

I'm so stoked on this next wedding I can hardly stand it!!! You may recognize this rockin' couple from the engagement session we shot just a few weeks before their wedding. 

Patrick + Irma were married on March 28th at the St. Andrew Church in Pasadena and had a ultra fabulous reception that followed at The Castle Green. This was one of those days that just kept getting better and better, not just in feeling, but visually too with style and class. It was a photographer's dream! Irma + Patrick's wedding will definitely go down in the books as one of our favorite weddings!

It all started off with a chandelier, a hand-made wedding dress (compliments to Irma's mother for her amazing craftmanship!), and Christian Dior shoes...

I want that chandelier! Love this prep image of Irma:)

Patrick added a personal touch to his groom outfit with amazing slacks he made himself! Also, his shoes were the best I've seen on a groom, I might add!
pi_wed006.jpg

Second favorite shot of the day, by Justin!

The lovely Irma had her hair and make-up done by...wait for it....Nicole DeAnne, of course!

Since Justin sprained his ankle just a few weeks prior we had Roger Ellsworth and Jason Roger out to help us that day. This next shot was taken by THE ROG!

Man, oh man, it was a super tough call, but THIS IS my favorite shot of the day!!! Everyone just looks so hot!
pi_wed015.jpg

Irma's mother also made all of the bridesmaids dress and hair-pieces...I know, her mom is reeeeeally talented!

The lady mariachi band was a great touch to the opening of the reception!

This was a sweet and emotional moment when Irma + Patrick thanked each other and their parents for everything in life and help with the wedding.

Recognize this guy??? Not only is he Patrick's father, but he's pretty famous too! Larry Winget, ladies and gentlemen! Check him out by clicking here!
pi_wed033.jpg

So, to top off the night, Irma changed into yet ANOTHER hand-made dress (made by her mother of course) to party in for the rest of the evening. She also switched her hair-piece to match with her lady friends.

And last, this post would not be complete without a snapshot of us with the amazing bride and groom!
pi_wed036.jpg
Please, oh please, click here to view the rest of Patrick + Irma's day, I had a super hard time narrowing down the photos for this post so I included them in their slideshow. 

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Winget!
