**Jenn and Thanh**

When Jenn and Thanh approached me about their October wedding at the Los Angeles Arboretum, I flipped.  I am in awe (and also terrified) of the peacocks that swarm the Arboretum and had been wanting to work that venue space for some time.   The natural beauty of the gardens are breathtaking, and that, combined with Jenn and Thanh’s warm and kind spirits, were going to make for a memorable day!  Below are just a few of the FAB shots of the day, taken by the most stealth photographers (these guys were everywhere, they never missed a shot!!) I’ve seen in some time…..Furious Photographers:   

Prior to their Western ceremony, Jenn and Thanh participated in the traditional Chinese tea ceremony.  Jenn looked like royalty in her qipao:


Soon after the two tea ceremonies were performed, we had Jenn change into the most beautiful lace dress for her Western ceremony:



And while the girls got ready, the guys helped Thanh sort out the red envelopes!


A few shots of their beatiful ceremony, complete with the crystal strand backdrop.  All decor and florals provided by Commerce Flowers:





After the ceremony, the bridal party and the newleyweds drove around the arboretum and shot some super fun portraits!  I was in love with the bridesmaids’ merlot colored dresses and their blingy sash:





Jenn and Thanh – Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day…..your wedding was beautiful, but most importantly your guests had a blast!  I really enjoyed working with you guys, most especially our final meeting at the Chinese restaurant.  I feel so worldly now, having eating the traditional fish stomach soup!  I hope to keep in touch with you both!!
