Cynthia + Ron

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Their smiles could cure world hunger, they are so genuine and unabashedly joyful. I love it. And I loved photographing their joy, love, and tears as Cynthia and Ron became husband and wife. They married at the Craven’s Estate in Pasadena.

Cynthia’s gorgeous beaded lace gown.

Their wedding bands.

And all three rings.

Amanda and her team not only coordinated the event, but they did all the florals as well! Amazing! Check out these bouquets!

Cynthia looking absolutely gorgeous on her wedding day.

Cynthia and Ron opted to do a first look and they had the best reactions ever!

How great is this next shot? I love these two together!

So sweet!

Don’t you love Cynthia’s red Luichiny pumps?

We then took some portraits of the super lovely couple around the Craven’s Estate.

Love this next one!

Then the rest of the girls came out to play!

A big thank you to Kim Le for shooting with me at Cynthia and Ron’s wedding. She captured these next two shots!

And you know how I’m always making my couples lie on the ground? Well, it was my turn to lie on the ground.

I have to say that the girls WAY out jumped the guys!

How cute is this? Cynthia sneaking a peek at her groom during a acoustic solo sung by a friend.

The magnificent Craven’s Estate.

Hello engagement ring. Meet wedding band. You two look great together!

More of the modern and elegant florals that In the Now put together for the reception tables.

Cynthia and Ron wanted a group shot with all of their wedding guests. It took a bit of squeezing, but here they all are!

The sun played peek a boo most of the day, but we got some sweet light towards sunset and so we snuck off for a few minutes to take a few more portraits. And I’m so glad Cynthia and Ron were willing to do this! Love these next images so so so much!

And just so you know how caring and sweet these two are, during the reception while the vendors were eating dinner, Cynthia came to us to ask if we were ok and whether or not we needed anything. And then, she came back with a floral arrangement and put it on our table so that we could have a little cheer with our meal. So sweet!

Thank you Cynthia and Ron for treating me as a friend and for being such good people. We love you guys and wish you all the best that love and life have to offer.
