Daniel & Roselou // Handcrafted wedding at Descanso Gardens in Pasadena

©2015 Sun & Sparrow Photography // Handcrafted wedding at Descanso Gardens

how she did itFROM THE BRIDE //  Roselou’s love of nature inspired her to create a rustic romantic wedding decor. Daniel was very understanding of this vision and helpful in creating it. We chose Descano Gardens because it’s beautiful. We were surrounded by nature and the reception hall was rustic looking. We did a few do it yourself projects to create the decor we envisioned such as our table numbers, staining the crates that we used during our ceremony and reception, and our beautiful sweetheart table backdrop. It was a lot of work; but in the end, it was all worth it seeing it come together on our wedding day.

The most memorable part for me is the first time I saw Daniel for the first look. I remember the day being really hot and he was not on time; so my bridesmaids and I were outside in the heat for a while so of course, I was a little upset. But when it was time for me to walk towards him for the first look, I became carefree and knew that this was our big day so we needed to enjoy and treasure every moment of it. I had a huge smile the first time I saw him and I knew everything was going to be okay. Our wedding planner also recommended for us to ‘hide’ after the recessional. We found an area away from everyone and just gave each other lots of hugs and kisses. We treasured those first few minutes to ourselves as a newly wed couple.

Photography was very important to us because it captures our special day. These photos will be kept for life! We loved Sun and Sparrow’s photos on their website and after speaking with Tiffani, she made us feel at ease. They capture the light in a great way and has a great eye on where it’s best to take to pictures. We loved working with Sun and Sparrow. They made everything feel stressed free.

For any bride planning their wedding process, my advice is to stick to your plan/vision. There will be many pinterest picture inspirations but once you decide on what you want on a certain detail, I would stop looking for other inspirations. Enjoy every moment of the planning process (though it could be hectic and stressful) and remember that this is for your special day. Everything will come together on your wedding day.

My favorite part of being married now is being able to come home everyday to Daniel.

Hilario & Raquel // Vintage Maravilla Gardens Wedding

how she did itFROM THE BRIDE //  Hilario and I were going for a botanical themed wedding, with a hint of comic book characters. Hilario is a comic book fanatic, so I wanted to add a touch of that to make it not just for me, but I wanted that day to be all of him, as well.   The most memorable for both of us, is just having everyone there who we love, and who have always supported us from the very beginning. We loved that we get to finally share this moment with all our close friends and family.   DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?  //  When making decisions, go for what you want and do not settle, but at the same time, it all comes down to who you are marrying at the end of the day, because that’s what matters in the end.   WHY WAS PHOTOGRAPHY IMPORTANT TO YOU AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SUN & SPARROW?  //  Photography was really important to us, because other than the memories we have from our wedding day, photography captures those important memories. By looking at these pictures, I want to always be able to go back to those moments, and how it felt, and I knew Sun & Sparrow would fulfill it beautifully. The reason why we chose Sun & Sparrow, they were actually the photographers for one of my close friend’s wedding, and we fell in love with their pictures and how they turned out. I loved their style of photography, and the way they used natural lighting was beautiful.
