Wedding photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

Patricia and Grant found me online last August, right around the time I was shooting a wedding at Pasea Hotel And Spa in Huntington Beach where they were planning to hold their special day. I was honored that they trusted me enough to hire me online and finally had the opportunity to get to know them better and hear about their wedding plans during a web meeting a few months later.

It was a beautiful Sunday on the Memorial Day holiday weekend that I drove down to Huntington Beach to meet up with my second photographer and get to work capturing Patricia and Grant as they made their final preparations.

Getting ready photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

While my second photographer was with Grant and his groomsmen as they were getting ready, I was with Patricia and the girls in their suite at Pasea Hotel And Spa. I photographed the bride having the final touches applied to her makeup and her bridesmaids posing behind, as well as grabbing a candid as they all admired her stunning wedding dress.

Patricia’s bridesmaids assisted as she stepped into the gown and helped to secure her necklace, with natural light pouring into the suite giving the photos a really glowing touch.

After a portrait of Patricia standing beside the window looking radiant, her dad arrived for the father-daughter first look, which I captured through a mirror reflection. I documented his reaction at seeing his daughter looking so beautiful on her special day, as well as the moment when Patricia affectionately kissed his cheek.

Pre-ceremony portraits at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

It was then time for the first look between Patricia and Grant, which actually start with a “first moment” as they held hands behind a corner wall on the balcony suite. I photographed Grant covering his eyes as he kissed his bride’s hand before a more traditional first look inside the suite as Patricia walked up behind and tapped his shoulder.

After documenting the couple’s reactions at seeing one another on their wedding day, we used the time we had available for a portrait session in and around Pasea Hotel And Spa. I captured photos of them embracing in a downstairs hallway and grabbed a creative shot in the lobby with its bird’s nest chair, then we stepped outside to explore the picturesque gardens.

Here I photographed the couple strolling along the pathways and looking lovingly into one another’s eyes. I also captured a special moment between Patricia and her flower girl and captured a playful shot as the couple kissed while their young flower girl and ring bearer covered their eyes.

Ceremony photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

Patricia and Grant’s wedding ceremony at Pasea Hotel And Spa was being held in a courtyard overlooking the ocean, with the ring bearer and flower girl leading the procession. I photographed Grant as he gave each of his groomsmen elaborate handshakes, then documented his reaction as Patricia walked down the aisle on the arm of her dad.

The ceremony began with the couple offering tea to both sets of parents as a sign of love and respect before they exchanged vows in what were quite windy conditions that saw Patricia’s veil take flight. I documented their ceremony through wide-angle shots and up-close candids as they placed trinkets and photos into a time capsule to remember their relationship for years to come.

After a cell phone selfie of the couple and their guests by the officiant, Patricia and Grant made their recessional walk down the aisle and I captured a kiss between them as their guests celebrated behind. We had time for a few more portraits of the couple at their oceanfront ceremonial site while also sneaking into the reception venue early for some portraits as they practiced on the dance floor and showed off their Lego cake.

Reception photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

The reception kicked off with the grand entrance by Patricia and Grant, with the groom tucking his pants into a pair of Sacramento Kings’ socks! They hit the dance floor straight away to perform their first dance, which was followed by some funny speeches and toasts by their bridal party that included references to Patricia’s tennis talents.

It was then time for some games led by the MC that included Patricia having to guess which arm muscles belonged to her now-husband while being blindfolded. It was then Grant’s turn to figure out which kiss came from his bride, with the MC joining in to plant a kiss on the groom’s cheek. This was followed by the bouquet toss and the garter removal, with Grant limbering up before throwing the garter around a basketball to a group of awaiting bachelors.

Everyone then hit the dance floor to celebrate, with plenty of lively action to capture from young and old alike. I grabbed some shots of the bride having fun in the photo booth with her girlfriends and Grant getting playful on the dance floor before ending the night with a romantic kiss between the couple behind their sweetheart table.
