Jimm and Maly at the Japanese Garden (Cal State Long Beach)

July 11th, 2011

Jimm and Maly had their beautiful intimate ceremony at the Japanese Gardens in Cal State Long Beach in front of family from all over the world. Their wild and memorable reception took place at the Villa Reception Hall in Westminster.

 

Jimm and Maly met when they lived back in Cambodia over a decade ago. Maly was the first to move here for college. Through emails, short phone calls, and skype they stayed in touch with each other til Jimm was able to move here himself.

All the patience and distance they endured paid off. On this day family from all over the world joined them for their very special occasion.

The Ceremony at the Japanese Gardens in Cal State Long Beach was gorgeous, although it was a small intimate wedding there was no shortage of emotion and joy from the guests.

The Reception at the Villa in Westminster was extremely wild. Apparently, in Cambodian weddings, it’s customary for them to do something crazy for every table of guests to receive their wedding money. My vocabulary lacks the word to describe how crazy it was. From putting food in strange places for each other to eat, to face smashing the couple; every table was able to outdo the previous dare.

I enjoyed being a part of Jimm and Maly’s wedding. I saw things I’ve never seen before and enjoyed moments I’d never experienced before. By the end of the night, I appreciated my job that much more to be part of something so special.

Brad and Christine’s wedding ceremony took place on a secluded beach in San Diego. It wasn’t the largest wedding I’ve ever covered but that didn’t take away from the emotions and moments that I was able to witness and capture.

From anxious family members to excited loved ones, this wedding had it all.

Brad and Christine had been together since high school, sharing numerous years of happiness and laughs.

And yes, I mean laughs- Christine loves to play pranks and definitely is the goofball of the relationship, check out her wedding shoes!

As the sun set, and their guests headed to their reception. We photographed their romantic session in front of a beautiful San Diego beach sunset.

As the night went on, laughter poured out and even I couldn’t hold back the chuckles.

With each special guest, I was able to get a glimpse into the difference that Toni makes into their lives. From her coworkers at AT&T, to the other branches of her family tree, you could just feel the love and respect they had for Toni.
