Pacific Palms Wedding Photography | Val & Jabra

It was a blast photographing Valerie and Jabra’s wedding at Pacific Palms. They are a sweet and caring couple who are all about creating a day just as much about their family and friends as it is about themselves. Valerie and Jabra decided to keep it traditional and not see each other prior to their wedding ceremony. But what’s unique is that Valerie decided to do a “first look” with her father-in-law, her brother, and lastly her dad. It was such a wonderful idea to have a special moment with each and every important male in her life before she walks down the aisle towards her main man. Their wedding day was filled with lots of laughs and tears of happiness as both families welcome the other into their own. It was a day where as two hearts become one, two families join and two cultures (Latin and Middle Eastern) blend. I love that Valerie and Jabra are so thoughtful to include a Mariachi band and a belly dancer as a representation of entertainment for each culture.  It surely was a treat for everyone. So read on for our Pacific Palms wedding photography and video!

And as for me… we’ve done many church weddings (whether it be Christian or Catholic), but this is my first time doing an Orthodox Christian Wedding. The crowning, the common cup, the dance… all of which are a great learning experience for me. That’s one thing I love about what I do (my “job” if you will); I get to learn new things all the time and embrace the various cultures around me.

This little flower girl was sooo adorable.  The camera loves her and she’s not at all shy with it.  =)

Moments like this are so special.  Jabra’s dad helping him get dressed for the big day.

And what’s really sweet is that Jabra got Val’s dad cuff-links that says, “Father of the Bride.  I loved her first.”

Val’s first look with her brother.  So sweet that they are close to each other, It really reminds me of how close my brother (Steven) and I are.

Wedding Ceremony at St. Nicholas Cathedral

St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Los Angeles (near MacArthur Park) is an orthodox church. From a wedding photography standpoint, it is highly ornate and beautiful to shoot in.
