Wedding photos at Strawberry Farms Golf Club:

I distinctly remember Jennifer and Michael’s engagement session back in March as it was one of the first that Charlene and I did as husband and wife. So I was excited to meet up with them again to capture their wedding at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine. They had planned a rustic, whimsical-inspired celebration, with lots of DIY features to adorn the red barn where both their wedding and reception would be held.

Getting ready photos at Hotel Irvine:

The day all started at Hotel Irvine where the couple were getting ready. Charlene concentrated on Michael and his groomsmen getting ready while I was with Jennifer and her bridesmaids as they made their final preparations. I photographed her as she put on her jewelry, assisted by her maid-of-honor, and shared in a special first look moment with her parents.

We then headed over to the Strawberry Farms Golf Club, also in Irvine, where the couple were having a first look before their wedding ceremony. We staged it outside a rustic, yet elegant, farm house on the Strawberry Farms estate, with a windmill in the backdrop.

I loved the couple’s reactions at seeing each other for the first time on this special day and we grabbed a few portraits of them in this unforgettable moment. They then had a traditional tea ceremony to pay respect to their elders in what is an Asian wedding tradition.

Ceremony photos at Strawberry Farms Golf Club:

The ceremony was being held in the rustic red barn of Strawberry Farms Golf Club and I got a wide angle shot as Jennifer’s parents escorted her inside and down the aisle. Michael was beaming as he watched his future wife walk towards him and I captured the tender exchange between Jennifer and her parents in this moment.

After exchanging rings and offering flowers to their moms, Jennifer and Michael were pronounced “husband and wife” and made their recessional walk down the aisle to be congratulated by family and friends.

Reception photos at Strawberry Farms Golf Club:

While the staff of Strawberry Farms Golf Club were doing a “flip”, transforming the ceremonial venue into a reception space, we grabbed a few portraits of the couple exploring the estate. They then made their grand reception entrance back into the barn and the party kicked off.

There were some emotional speeches from those closest to the couple and a tender father-daughter dance, as well as some playful candid moments to capture as wedding guests did the “robot” on the dance floor and Jennifer and Michael sang along to one of their favorite songs.
