The big day is finally here! I still recall the whimsical cherry blossom engagement shoot with Aleks and Jordan. They arrived on location at 6am sharp so we could capture the soft morning light. I knew they were troopers then! Aleks look beyond beautiful today, with her makeup done by the wonderful Judy Lim Makeup And Hair and hair done by her own sister Anna! The most touching moment was when Aleks opened the letter written by her grandma who couldn’t be here due to her health but sent her well wishes and reminded she’s with them spiritually. I couldn’t help feeling some moisture in my eyes as I clicked the shutter. Jordan and his groomsmen were such a fun bunch! It doesn’t hurt either when his father dropped by with a gorgeous Rolls Royce to carry the bride!
The Ukrainian ceremony was filled with gentle blessings and tears of joy. Aleks was incredibly tasteful with her choice of flower arrangement (Creations by Gitta). Reception at Universal Eventspace was also decorated immaculately by Creations by Gitta , and did I mention the luscious cake by Sweet Regards?! Everyone cracked in laughter when Aleks’ bridesmaid (her sisters) reminded everyone of the “wedding book” Aleks made in high school in the parenting class where they first met, which by the way, they got fake married in that class!
We had a great time shooting this wonderful couple, always joyful to see happily ever afters!
