I’ve had such a great time working with Araceli and Jorge’s on their engagement session, and naturally that led to our great chemistry working towards their big day.  Their wedding wedding was held at the St. Vincent De Paul Church (St. Vincent Catholic Church) in Los Angeles, which I only late found that they actually filmed the climatic scene of “End of Days” there!  The architecture there is absolutely stunning and if I didn’t tell you you probably would have guessed it’s a church in Europe.

We wanted to incorporate their lives, their personalities, as well as their deep emotional ties in this set of pictures and I think the pictures would speak for themselves without much of my description.  Their gorgeous wedding reception was held at the private Estate, a little known but beautiful venue.  Paul came up to me and told me about the lyrics of the “Y Como es El” by Vicente Fernandez that Araceli and her dad was dancing during the father daughter dance.  “Tell me about this guy you have met, ask him how he stole a piece of my life”  These must be the words at the bottom of every father’s heart during that father-daughter dance.  I see the tears in their eyes, and I couldn’t help but continue capturing it with tears in my eyes as well.
