Janice + Edward = Married at Happy Trails in Pasadena!

Janice and Edward couldn’t have picked a better day to get married. The weather was gorgeous — warm, but not too much so, with beautiful light for gorgeous photos. They also couldn’t have picked a better wedding venue. I had never heard of Happy Trails before, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this charming little area with a beautiful old tree and lush foliage. It was the perfect setting for such an intimate wedding. My friend Jenny of Alders Photography asked me to shoot this wedding with her and I’m so glad she did. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the day!

I got to hang out with Edward while he got ready while Jenny was on the other side of town capturing Janice’s morning. This was the first time I photographed a groom getting ready and I liked it. Definitely a bit more low key!





When we arrived at the venue I was thrilled to see all of the fantastic details that Janice and Edward had planned out. Everyone loves a good candy buffet and this one was candy for the eyes as much as it was for the taste buds!


You’re probably not going to believe it when I tell you this, but Janice’s mom made the cupcakes and the cake herself, and she’s not even a baker! They were so incredibly gorgeous — and very tasty, too!


Love these little moments between Janice and her dad just before he walked her down the aisle…


Both Janice and Edward were very emotional during the ceremony. It was very touching.
