So read on for our day of Altadena Country Club wedding photography!

Wedding Preparation

Instead of ordering fresh flowers, Hope had her bouquets and boutonnieres made completely of paper!!  “It lasts longer,” she says.  =)

This Matt and his entourage.  I thought it was really cool that Matt had his sister and best girl friend be “groomsmen” as well.  I love it when couples think outside the box and break traditions.

Altadena Country Club Wedding Reception

I love their postal service wedding them.   Their place cards were made to resemble mail.

Instead of having a guest sign in book, they had postcards (from all the places that they’ve traveled too) where guests can wish them many well wishes.

Reception Games

During their reception, the DJ/MC had the guests participate in many fun games.  One of which is called the “musical chair.”  Participants were instructed to get a certain item (i.e. shoes, tie, glasses, etc.) from the audience and return to the center stage to grab a seat as soon as possible.  The last one back will not have a seat and thus be eliminated from the game.
