What a weekend! On Friday morning, Eddie and I drove up to Beverly Hills, to meet Jen and Derek for their short and sweet wedding ceremony. Jen was really wanting the ceremony to be intimate and stressless, and with just their immediate family, the whole wedding was so lovely. After the ceremony we got a few pictures in and had a delicious Italian lunch, which was just family (and Eddie and I). It was so wonderful to be included and I loved being apart of the Chen/Stratton crew all weekend!
On Saturday they had their reception at the beautiful Rococo Room at Santorini Restaurant, in Pasadena. Before we headed to their reception to hang with friends and family, we walked from our hotel (where Jen and Derek got ready) to Pasadena City hall to take the couples portraits, and family pictures. Because their wedding was the day before, we had lots of time to relax and get some amazing shots. And I already know I'm going to have a hard time choosing from these images, because they are all so amazing!
Their reception was such a blast, I got hang with college friends and meet some amazing wonderful people, all who love Jen and Derek. I especially loved their "Grand Entrance", complete with sparklers and some sweet dance moves!
Jen and Derek, I am so happy for you both and I can't wait to see what life has in store for you. Enjoy your week in Kauai and don't forget to wear sunscreen and hydrate!
