San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

We can’t tell you how much we enjoy shooting weddings that are referred to us by past couples! It all started with Jenny and Miguel’s engagement photos in San Diego, who then referred us to Maricel and EJ, who referred us to Sammy and Allen. They are all part of a very cool and caring group of friends in Southern California and we are very thankful that they’ve all reached out to us and included us in some very important moments in their lives. We really love them all!

Sammy and Allen had their wedding at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Chino Hills, CA. It was one of those perfect sunny California days, and as Sammy got ready with her girls you could see how excited she was to be marrying Allen. One of the sweetest moments was when she was presented with Allen’s wedding gift – a gorgeous necklace and set of earrings that she wanted to buy for the wedding but decided was too expensive to splurge on. The smile on her face was priceless! Sammy’s gift to Allen was a sexy Armani watch. She was so thrilled when she got to see a picture of him wearing it before the ceremony!

Sammy and Allen had a traditional Catholic ceremony. After the ceremony, we went to Summitridge Park for wedding party photos and individual photos of Sammy and Allen. With a setting sun and beautiful trees, the park was the perfect backdrop for photos!

The reception took place at the Sheraton Fairplex in Pomona. As Allen said on Facebook after the wedding, the wedding guests partied like rockstars! It was a great time, but the highlight of the evening was Sammy and Allen’s first dance. Sammy and Allen were interviewed by DJ Steve Shanahan at Honored Occasions and shared the story of how they met, how Allen had proposed, and how they felt about each other. Little did Sammy know that Allen had had these statements recorded and mixed into their first dance song, so as they danced for the first time, their statements of love were played for everyone to enjoy. What an incredible surprise!!! We had a hard time fighting the tears as we tried to capture this special moment!

The newlyweds are currently having the time of their lives in Hawaii (sooo lucky!!). We send them best of wishes as they start their life together as husband and wife!!!
