Daniel and Jessica are the sweetest couple. They share such a beautiful, comfortable, and playful love!  It was such an honor to capture their engagement photos and I know their June wedding is going to be perfect!

Special thanks to Flawless Faces for Jessica’s gorgeous hair and makeup! Jessica is the kind of girl who could look beautiful 30 seconds after she rolled out of bed, but Flawless Faces really made her natural beauty shine.

Onto the photos!  :)

Amazing isn’t a powerful enough word to describe Mike and Sherwin’s wedding, but it’s the best word I’ve got so I’m going with it. It was AMAZING. There was the gorgeous dress, the perfect venue, bling for days, and, most importantly, a couple in love and absolutely ecstatic that their wedding day had arrived. I shouldn’t have been surprised at the amazingness (yes, spell check, that’s a word) given that In the Now was in charge of design and coordination, but it still took my breath away. I was 100% in love with the entire day.

Mike and Sherwin, you two blew me away on your wedding day. You laughed, danced, and sang through your wedding and it was an absolute joy to watch and document. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day. Love and blessings to you both!

Soka University was the perfect venue. I can’t wait to shoot there again!
Probably one of my favorite moments of the day … Mike did a 360° walk around Sherwin to take in her magnificence. Adorable.
Sherwin’s father passed away last year, so Sherwin carried a picture of him on her bouquet. So sweet.
Loved this wedding party, especially former bride and groom Carizza and Devon!

Flower Allie did a great job with the florals – the were beautiful and sparkly, just like Sherwin!

You’ll notice that Sherwin has a microphone in her hand as she is walking down the aisle. That’s because she and Mike sang a duet to each other as she walked! It was so beautiful and they totally pulled it off. Can you imagine walking down those stairs, in those shoes, singing??? Sherwin, you are amazing.
The reception took place inside Founder’s Hall at Soka University with it’s perfect mix of modernity and elegance.
LOVE the table numbers on the vases!
Mike and Sherwin entered dancing and rarely stopped the whole evening. It was truly a celebration!
Love this custom dance floor monogram – an In the Now signature detail. So awesome.
Sherwin and her Mom danced a Mother-Daughter dance to Dance with My Father  by Luther Vandross. So very touching.

They got married on the hottest day in the history of days, yet somehow Kim and Luke were both as cool and calm as ever. Surrounded by their loving family and friends, many of whom flew in from Luke’s native Australia, they made the most of every second of their wedding day. They danced, they laughed, and, in a truly swoon-worthy moment, Luke serenaded his bride with love songs. Total perfection – the wedding and the couple.

Kim and Luke, I feel so incredibly fortunate to have been able to document your wedding day. You two are absolutely perfect for one another – both so genuine, thoughtful, and fun to be around! I wish you blessings upon blessings as you begin your lives together as husband and wife!

 The day began at the Westin Pasadena, where Kim and her beautiful bridesmaids prepared for the day …

Luke and Kim opted for a first look so they could enjoy maximum time with the guests who had traveled so far to see them. It was such a sweet moment!
Following the first look, we took photos all around Pasadena City Hall. It was gorgeous and provided much appreciated shade for the bridal party and family!
Once photos were done, we headed to First United Methodist Church. It was amazing – the church and the heartfelt ceremony.
Kim and Luke had their family members come up to the altar to bless their wedding rings.
Following the ceremony, we took a quick walk over the the reception at Noor.
