Head over heels. That’s the phrase that runs through my head as I think back over Cat and Lalo’s wedding day, and look through their photographs. These two love big and vibrantly, and you can just feel it when you’re around them for any length of time. And you can see it… in the way that Lalo’s face lights up when he looks at Cat… and in the way Cat throws her head back in laughter and has this big smile on her face when she is with Lalo.
It was such a joy to shoot this wedding, to see Cat and Lalo surrounded by family and friends who love them so dearly, and to witness another example of God’s faithfulness in bringing these two together.
The day started off at the Embassy Suites in Glendale, where Cat was getting ready with her bridesmaids. She had booked one of the suites, so all the girls where there together, chatting, sipping mimosas, and getting their hair and makeup done.
How cute are these wedding programs? They were strung up all over a mini tree with branches on a table in the foyer. So unique!
Another detail that I loved were the wedding favors… from the Taverdi family, bottles of olive oil from olives handpicked and pressed by the family, and from the Zúñigas, bottles of homemade chili sauce that is the family’s own recipe.
After the bridal party was announced, there was much dancing, laughter, cheers, good food, and dancing, and dancing, and dancing for the rest of the evening.
