Wedding At Golden Road Brewing

SARAH & RYAN

Wedding photos at Golden Road Brewing:

Although Sarah and Ryan had opted for an intimate elopement wedding ceremony with just their parents at the Pasadena City Hall, they had planned a big reception party with extended family and friends the following day at Los Angeles’ Golden Road Brewing. Rather than a formal sit-down meal, it was one long party well into the night and definitely a fun evening for me to capture this wedding at Golden Road Brewing.

Getting ready photos at the Holiday Inn Burbank:

The couple was getting ready at the Holiday Inn Burbank and I met them there to capture a few shots as they made the final touches to their wedding outfits. In addition to close-up candids as Sarah had her makeup done and silhouette shots of Ryan fixing his tie, I also grabbed a few intimate moments between Sarah’s parents on what was a special day for them also.

Reception photos at Golden Road Brewing:

But the party really started when we headed over to Golden Road Brewing. Sarah and Ryan had booked their private function room for a wild night of beer drinking, toasting and plenty of dance floor action. Although they did opt for a few classic western wedding rituals, such as a first dance and father-daughter dance, the reception was more of an informal celebration where everyone just let loose, and I think these Golden Road Brewing wedding photos reflect that.

The venue has two floors, so in addition to photographing all the action down below, I made sure to look up occasionally to capture all the revelry going on above! I also managed to convince Sarah and Ryan to sneak away for a few nighttime couple portraits, using off-camera flash to illuminate them in the dimly-lit surrounds.

I love when bridal couples opt to do something completely different for their wedding celebrations, and this Pasadena City Hall elopement and Golden Road Brewing reception of Sarah and Ryan’s was definitely unique. I wish this fun-loving couple an amazing life together, and hope to see them on Instagram in the near future!
