Wedding photos at Center Club:

Being the wedding photographer at Edel and Ryan’s wedding was like reconnecting with old friends as I had first met the bride’s family as the photographer for her sister’s wedding back in 2010. Although I hadn’t met Ryan then, I connected with him straight away when we had our initial meeting. I couldn’t wait to capture their wedding at Center Club, located in the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa.

Getting ready photos at a private residence in Irvine:

My wife Charlene was my second photographer for the day, and she helped me out photographing Edel at her parents’ house in Irvine before driving over to capture Ryan getting ready at his place. There was just such a great vibe in the house as Edel shared in this moment with with her sisters, girlfriends, and really sweet parents, before we all jumped in the party bus limo for what was a very entertaining ride to the ceremony.

Ceremony photos at Santiago De Compostela Catholic Church:

Edel has Irish heritage and the couple had decided on a Catholic wedding ceremony at the Santiago De Compostela Catholic Church in Lake Forest. They didn’t want a first look session, so when Edel walked down the aisle, arm-in-arm with her dad, I captured Ryan’s undeniably proud smile at seeing his beautiful bride for the first time on their wedding day.

The ceremony incorporated both Western and Catholic elements, with plenty of emotional candid moments and expressions to capture from both the bridal couple and their family. After Edel and Ryan had made their recessional walk back down the aisle as husband and wife, they were greeted with warm congratulations and embraces from friends and family in the church’s exterior courtyard.

Reception photos at the Center Club:

The reception was being held at the Center Club of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa and was a traditional Western event with some Irish musical influences thrown in. I photographed Edel and Ryan’s intimate first dance, as well as the touching parental dances, before the cake-cutting ceremony took place, watched on by Ryan’s eager young nephew. The reception was overflowing with love and celebration for this newly married couple and I hope that these Center Club wedding photos reflect that.
