eileen and daniel met when she was in the 7th grade. yes, you heard me — their love story is one that was 10 years in the making. they were part of the same youth group, and every year their church would hold a new year’s eve service. 10 years ago for new years eve, eileen gave daniel a very special cupcake she made. the rest is history.
eileen and daniel got married at Wilshire United Methodist Church with a reception to follow at the same location and another reception right after that at the Pasadena Hilton. yep, a full day of festivities and my awesome second shooter Lynn Chyi at my side.
check out eileen’s sassy reception dress on the left! as if one gorgeous dress wasn’t enough!
with such a full day of festivities, we didn’t have much time for portraits, but we squeezed in as many as we could .
how sweet are they!
loved this shot of eileen!
the first reception! didn’t stay too long to beat traffic, so i’m showing more from the 2nd reception.
there was a fun game of musical chairs to start off the reception; the twist: item-retrieval replaced the normal musical cue to sit down. you can imagine there was a lot of running!
some of the items did not enjoy being collected!
the last item to bring up to the stage was the groom’s 100-year old great-grandfather (?). i wasn’t sure he understood english, but he seemed to know he was part of a winning team!
the MCs had some married couples come up to give the couple a word of wisom…as well as model a kiss for them to imitate. some really took it to another level:
yummy sorbet for dessert!
