|Waiting to go in at the church.|
|A toast to the happy couple!|
It was a gorgeous day on May 17 to be photographing Vanessa and Oscar's wedding. Roger and I split up our shooting gear to cover the getting ready shots. I stayed with Vanessa and the girls at her house while Roger was with Oscar and his brother at the apartment. We both got some great getting ready shots and everyone was so excited.
The wedding was at St Martin De Porres Catholic Church in Yorba Linda. We have photographed in there chapel before and each time I am amazed at how beautiful it is. After the ceremony we took a few photos inside the church and then we were off to Huntington Beach for the gorgeous reception at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa. We took photos around the grounds for a little bit but headed to the reception pretty quickly so the couple could enjoy their friends and family at the reception. Oscar and Vanessa are such a fun, caring couple. Sadly her Grandfather had just passed the week before and they made sure there was a special place of honor for him and that her Grandma and Uncle were taken care of. One of the highlights of the evening was when her special Uncle caught the garter and everyone lifted him up and carried him around the room. His smile and joy was priceless. We also enjoyed how much fun Vanessa and Oscar were getting into the dancing. Vanessa pulled her hair into a ponytail so she could rock and roll! Now that's my kind of party! Congratulations to a lovely couple who we know will bring much joy and happiness together.
