Out of Office - Hong Kong

I'll be out of office for 2 weeks traveling to Hong Kong. Although I really never liked long flights 'cause I just never sleep well especially on the plane sitting next to strangers, it's about time I pay a visit to my families and spend some quality time with them! I'll be covering a wedding, an engagement session, and also one family portrait session during my stay. Be back soon! ;-)

Wedding: Becky & Ben @ Doubletree Hotel, Monrovia

wedding at Doubletree Hotel, Monrovia 

I still freshly remember when Becky, Ben, Shirley, and I met up at Solvang for breakfast the day we were doing their engagement session.   There were Danish pastries, tall wild grass so thick that we could hardly walk in there, stopping by a winery with Becky all dressed up with a bouquet and everybody’s pondering what’s going on, and of course that fat kitty at Alma Rosa Winery who scared Becky a few times. 

It was a hot and very sunny day in September, but luckily we stayed mostly indoors in the hotel except the ceremony was held at the pool side, beautifully decorated by Nhu and Linda from Lumiani Events.  Below is a few pictures taken during the day.  Enjoy.  =)

Becky’s pretty Stuart Weitzman heels.  I know she really <3 them. =)

The very cute couple taking a break before the reception, and the super pretty branch arrangements… I want one for my home… *hint* *hint* =)

Their beautiful first dance along Jason Mraz’s Lucky.  Great choice… Shirley and I both love the lyrics. =)

The friend’s having tons of fun at their table

Becky really enjoying herself at the dance floor… haha

They were playing a Michael Jackson song and suddenly it turned into a dance off!

Yea… the little kid was that good, look at how everybody was shocked!

One last picture of the venue before I go. =)


Sorry I haven’t been updating the blog as often as I wanted, again…  this summer wedding season has really taken a toll on me and I’ve actually been sick the past few days and also trying to catch up with all the work before I head off to Hong Kong next week!  More weddings, engagements, travel pictures to come soon!  Stay tuned!
