Chinatown Wedding Photography Pasadena Los Angeles | Kim + Scott

Kimberlee and Scott traveled all the way from Ohio to have their wedding here in Pasadena (so that family and friends can share their joyous day).  I remember that Kim and I played phone tag with each other (more than a few times) so when we finally got a chance to talk, it was like old friends catching up.  Since they were both in Ohio, all our correspondence were via phone calls and email.  I was so excited to finally meet with them for the first time on their wedding day!!  It was like going on a first date with someone you’ve been talking to for 6 months.  I was super excited to meet them!!  But read on for our day of Chinatown wedding photography!

Wedding Preparation at the Westin Hotel in Pasadena

We showed up at the Westin Hotel, Pasadena where Kim was getting ready in the morning.  She was nothing but smiles and giggles! I’m not kidding when I say there isn’t a second of the day where Kim was not smiling!!  See for yourself…

Kim and Scott decided to have a family style dinner at Ocean Seafood Restaurant.  It was pretty intimate in that everyone sat down to eat (the 11 course meal) and chatted among each other as the bride and groom made their way to personally visit each guests at each table.
