Wedding At Brandview Ballroom

BINCY & SAM

Locations:

  • Getting ready: Home in Granada Hills, CA (bride) and Hotel in Burbank, CA (groom)

 

Wedding photos at Brandview Ballroom:

I first met bride-to-be Bincy at the start of the year in my Downtown Long Beach studio where I heard all about her upcoming wedding to Sam and we discussed their engagement session. I then had the privilege of meeting Sam during their Downtown Los Angeles e-session at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and LACMA.

They were really wonderful to work with and I was looking forward to meeting up again to capture their wedding at Brandview Ballroom. They were planning on doing something a little different, with a morning ceremony at the Glendale Presbyterian Church, followed by a reception luncheon at the nearby Brandview Ballroom. This worked perfectly for me, as it meant we would have plenty of time for couple portraits in the afternoon, without having to rush back to a reception.

Getting ready photos at a home in Granada Hills:

The day all started with the couple getting ready at separate locations, with Sam at a hotel in Burbank, while Bincy and the girls were at her family home in Granada Hills. While they were having a predominantly western-style Christian wedding, Bincy’s bridesmaids were in gorgeous pink saris, honoring the couple’s Indian roots.

I captured creative shots as the groom styled his hair in a mirror and Bincy’s bridesmaids admired her ring, as well as the emotional family ceremony that took place in the bride’s Granada Hills home.

Ceremony photos at Glendale Presbyterian Church:

We then drove over to the Glendale Presbyterian Church where Bincy’s parents escorted her down the aisle to an expectant Sam. Their ceremony incorporated numerous traditional Christian rites and rituals which I documented from creative vantage points. This included the couple lighting candles together and a sermon from their pastor. They then made a jubilant recessional walk as “husband and wife” and I captured a special moment behind-the-scenes in one of the church rooms as the significance of this moment sunk in.

Reception photos at Brandview Ballroom:

We then headed just a mile over to the Brandview Ballroom for their reception luncheon, beginning with the couple’s grand entrance through an arch created by their bridal party. They had decided to incorporate an Indian tradition of having dances performed by family and friends, with the bridal party the first to take to the dance floor in a choreographed routine.

Their wedding party at the Brandview Ballroom continued with speeches from those closest to them and some emotional moments for Bincy’s mom, then the couple performed their first dance and everyone hit the dance floor. Portraits at Pasadena City Hall: At the end of the reception luncheon, we drove out to Pasadena for a wedding portrait session at the First United Methodist Church and the gorgeous Pasadena City Hall. Both Bincy and Sam were glowing as I captured warm embraces of them backed by the impressive architecture of both buildings in what was such a relaxed way to end this wonderful day.
