Sherman Gardens Wedding | Corona Del Mar

sherman-gardens-wedding-photographer-corona-del-mar-ca-nicole-caldwell-33Angela and Chris were married at the beautiful Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona Del Mar.  The sunset was shortly after the ceremony, so Angela and Chris did a first look to take advantage of all the photo ops in the gardens, also enabling us to shoot the key family photos before the ceremony, which makes the day less rushed.  You take months and months of planning your wedding, why would you want to cram all your photos in to 45 minutes, if your lucky.  Take the time.  See each other before.  Enjoy your day much more.

The party continued at the J Zhou  in Tustin, Angela changed in to a traditional  cheongsam, also known as qipao.  The wedding cake was from Kings Hawaiian.

Second Photographer Kip Roof.

The reception followed with a 10 course traditional banquet at J Zhou Oriental Cuisine. Angela and Chris love to travel, so it was very fitting for Lonely Planet’s “The Ultimate Travel” to serve as their guest book.j-zhou-oriental-cuisine-wedding-chinese-banquet-nicole-caldwell-04
