Roseann and Jerry : Wedding

Photography

She waited on the balcony of her hotel room. She watched as the bridal party trickled into the lobby and delivered salutations perched from the large bay window. Roseann was slightly nervous to be marrying Jerry, but masked these emotions with laughter and smiles. She recounted hilarious stories of her life with the Los Angeles Police Department and the role Jerry played as the man who swept her off her feet while training in the Academy. Little did Roseann realize her career choice would forever change the direction of her life.

Jerry fell in love with Roseann’s beauty and infectious smile, and Roseann fell in love with Jerry’s cheeks. They were just so rosy and cute, I wanted to pinch them! Strangely enough, the desire to pinch him morphed into the desire to kiss him…which morphed into the desire to marry him.

Their wedding was held at Calamigos Equestrian Center and meticulously planned by Roseann…and nothing was left unnoticed with help from Tana, the onsite coordinator. Wedding day hair was beautifully done by Karina Vega and makeup fabulous applied by Aimee Jakes. All the florals were designed by Shirvan Designs, and the party was kept bumpin’ with help from DJ Bandoma (this guy was seriously AWESOME!). These uber fierce vendors made my day SO enjoyable and I loved working with them!

Rosie and Jerry…where do I begin? How can I express how much I love you guys without getting mushy and unprofessional? We’ve become friends throughout this process and I was privileged to document your wedding day. I didn’t feel like your photographer, I felt like an honorary member of your bridal party and—more importantly—a true friend. JD and I loved every minute of your wedding and couldn’t think more highly of your love and devotion for each other. Have fun in Thailand and don’t forget to kiss while eating pad thai! 😉 Much Love and Appreciation…J*

Roseann’s dress had something like 2,983 buttons down her back, so it took everyone in the room to make her look just beautiful! 😉

Roseann and Jerry opted for a First Look and I couldn’t have been more happy! Because of their great decision, we had A LOT of time for pictures at their hotel as well as at their venue. Here’s Roseann’s reaction to seeing her husband-to-be…

Before leaving the hotel, we went to the rooftop and found this awesome lounge area by the pool…LOVED it! 🙂

The light was just beautiful on Saturday at the Calamigos Equestrian Center, so we had more fun shooting more wedding photos around the lush grounds…

I wish I could take credit for this shot, but JD worked his magic and caught the girls hanging out before the ceremony…
