Great weather for a wedding! It was in the low 70’s for most of the day. The wedding was originally planned for inside at the Quail Lakes Clubhouse but the weather was so nice they moved it outdoors next to the lake.

Ivan and Jessica started their wedding day in the morning with a Vietnamese tea ceremony. As is tradition, Ivan walked from his home to the home of Jessica with all his family. They brought with them gifts of traditional food, including a full roast pig, and others gifts including flowers for the bridal party. After the tea ceremony, they had a full Catholic wedding ceremony at St. John’s Cathedral in Fresno. The bride was beautiful in her traditional Vietnamese dress for the tea ceremony as well as in the dress for the ceremony at St. John’s.  In the late afternoon it was over to Classic Catering in Clovis for the reception.

Chris and Daniella were married at Willow Gardens Nursery in Clovis, and their reception was held at The Loft in downtown Fresno.  During the ceremony they used two large locks to represent their hearts. The locks were locked together, and the keys were tied to balloons. Near the end of the ceremony the keys and balloons were released and flew away. It was very beautiful moment!

I had no idea that the Clovis Rodeo Grounds did weddings. It’s practically in my backyard. With the ceremony outside on the green lawn and the reception indoors, it worked very nicely.   I really liked the skyline in the evening.

We recently had the privilege of shooting Suzy and Cesar’s wedding video at Clovis Castle. They were such a beautiful couple inside and out, and it was a pleasure to be involved in their special day. It was a gorgeous spring day and happened to be Easter Sunday, thus you will see the kids’ Easter egg hunt in this clip. Best wishes for many happy years to come Suzy and Cesar!
