Long Beach Latin Wedding
This Long Beach Latin Wedding started at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, had a detour across the Vincent Thomas bridge to the Point Fermin Lighthouse and ended at the Museum of Latin American Art. The wedding was everything you could possibly want it to be, filled with joyful family and friends, it was colorfully festive, love was in the air, and the newlyweds looked like they were having a ball! Congratulations Christy & Israel, what a beautiful day to remember.
First of all, Christy’s dress was gorgeous! Most noteworthy is it was handmade and painted by her aunt. I LOVED it.
Israel parked his Harley Davidson right out front on the church steps, probably the most badass groom I’ve shot to date.
St. Anthony’s Catholic Church was beautiful. It allowed me to capture some images that really incorporated this wondrous space.
After the ceremony, the motorcycle joy ride begins. So cool!
I followed Christy and Israel in her cousin’s truck like the paparazzi. I would lean out the window with my long lens, out the back window, or pop out of the sunroof. It was fun! Here they are riding over the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
I love how Israel used his side mirror to comb his hair .
We thought it would be fun to buy a little treat from this vendor. Israel took a bite and said it was too cold.
We found some nice shade outside the Point Fermin Lighthouse.
The reception was at the Museum of Latin American Art. I really dug this giant fork and knife the museum had on the wall.
I LOVED her cake… almost as much as the dress. Although i never tried the cake, so maybe that would have set it over the top. Either way, they were both radiant, vibrant, and just really pretty.
Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dances are always touching to me.
They had one gallery open at the museum, and this giant painting in particular caught our eye.
