Jay & Aleisha

Oh my gosh I am so far behind in blogging weddings! Apologies to all my lovely people who want to see their sneak peeks! Here's a fantastic wedding that I shot at the end of June -- wow, what a photogenic couple! Aleisha and Jay were so cute, I couldn't stop taking pictures of them. I was so excited to shoot their wedding because it was my first time shooting in the gorgeous Grace Episcopal Church on Tejon Street. I've been dying to shoot a wedding in there for years and I finally got the chance! It was such a great day, wonderful energy and the weather cooperated, and these two are so in love. You guys, I wish you all the best!

Gown -- Bridal Elegance
Footwear -- Chuck Taylor
Bridesmaids attire -- J. Crew
Ceremony -- Grace Episcopal Church
Reception -- The Antlers Hilton

With apologies to Mary the flower girl, this picture is hilarious!

Aleisha made button boutonnieres for all the guys.

Beautiful Grace Episcopal Church

There's nothing like getting a kiss from your new husband and hugs from your best friends at the same time!

Checking out her new bling

Yes I'm mere inches from being trampled to death here, but it was worth it to get this awesome shot!

The button theme continued with the groom's cake.

There were origami cranes all over the reception. I thought it would make for a cool rings shot.

Aleisha's uncle gave a very moving toast. This is her expression as she listens to him talk about her mother, whom she lost at a young age.

I love this image, especially the expressions on the faces of the people in the background.

The bouquet toss...

and the triumphant bouquet catcher!

I think Jay's grandmother was trying to tell me something!

I came across these guys decorating the car as I left.
