A Formal LA Ceremony: Stephanie and John

Part Two: The Ceremony

The magic continues with Stephanie and John’s elegant grey and blush wedding in sunny Los Angeles! If you missed it, we posted some stylish shots of Stephanie and her bridesmaids getting ready for the big day, and John seeing Stephanie for the first time in her fabulous Vera Wang dress – so touching!

After a fun romp around the Biltmore Hotel, Stephanie, John, and their bridal party were whisked away to Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena to say their “I Do’s!”

wedding party in front of church The whole bridal party was bursting with excitement, so we blew off some steam with goofy poses (and some formal ones!) in front of the Cathedral. Even though the ceremony was on the long side, we didn’t mind when it’s in such an impressive space! bride and bridesmaids We  couldn’t ask for a prettier bride! Stephanie’s simple updo and all-white bouquet allow her Vera Wang dress to really shine!

groom and groomsmen All the guys are looking so dapper for the camera! A tip for formal styling : even if all the groomsmen are wearing black tuxedos, make sure the groom stands out somehow! John sports a white bow tie while all of his groomsmen are in black.

Time to say I DO!

The chandeliers and candelabras cast a dreamy light over our two lovebirds.
