CSULB Japanese Garden Wedding Photography | Christina + George

Yay!!  I had the pleasure of photographing another wedding at the gorgeous Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach.  Only 3 weeks prior to this wedding, Gavin and I were doing wedding photography (& wedding videography) at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden in Long Beach.  There’s just something so magical about weddings and Japanese Gardens… it just goes so well together!!  The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden (at CSULB) is definitely becoming one of my favorite locations to photograph weddings because of its serene beauty.  So read on for our day of CSULB Japanese Garden wedding photography!

Christina had many DIY projects and the center pieces is one of them.  All the flowers were made of silk.

Ben, who is a professional saxo player (also their good friend) put on an amazing performance.  Gavin and I also had the pleasure of photographing Ben’s engagement session in San Pedro and wedding in Palos Verdes.

Christina and George decided to attach at $50 bill to both the garter and bouquet.  This definitely got all the bachelors and single ladies out on the dance floor wanting to catch it.  LOL
