Chikara + Eric :: ENGAGED :: Los Angeles, CA

April 26 2012, Posted by Elsa

We have a super exciting  May coming up, packed with 4 weddings! That just means that we have 4 fabulous engagement shoots to share with you!

Let’s kick it off with Chikara and Eric! Simply put, Chikara + Eric = FUN! You can definitely tell how much they enjoy being with each other. Chikara and Eric are also just so good together. They have been planning their wedding long distance, with Chikara in Socal and Eric in New Jersey. But helping them plan their wedding has been one smooth ride. Chikara is one of the calmest brides ever. Plus, our meetings are always fun, we end up chatting about totally random topics, and both of us always end up fighting for the bill. I am so excited for their wedding next weekend at Skirball Cultural Center. I’m also sad because once their wedding is over, there will be no more daily interactions with Chikara, especially since she’s moving to Jersey the day after her wedding!

Anyways, enough with the sadness… let’s move on to their happy happy photos!

It isn’t often that I find myself speechless. But honestly, I don’t even know where to begin with Lynn and Ungar’s wedding. We love all of our clients… but Lynn and Ungar’s wedding is definitely one to remember forever. March 4, 2012 was absolutely perfect. The weather was perfect (which is not always the case  especially when you’re by the ocean) and of course, Lynn and Ungar were perfect. They added so many small personal touches to their wedding that made it so special. Let me use the photos to explain….

Lynn’s beautiful wedding gown (first dress of the day!) was made by Rosa Clara…. Shoes, none other than Valentino

His AND Hers BLING!!

The beautiful bride! Hair and makeup by the talented Chiali!

The first look

Love how the bridesmaids wore different Spring-colored dresses with bouquets to match. And Lynn’s bouquet was a mixture of all 4 colors. So fresh, fun, and vibrant!

Beautiful Catalina Point at Terranea Resort

As a surprise for Ungar, Lynn sang her personal vow to him. She sang “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson and sounded amazing. Everyone loved it, especially Ungar!

We scheduled a 60 dove release that day. The doves must have loved Lynn and Ungar so much because I’ve never seen them fly the way they did that day. They circled above the guests numerous times and then flew over the ocean and continued to circle.

Lynn and Ungar dancing their way back down the aisle during the recessional.

Lynn’s initials are L.C. and Ungar’s are U.K.  L.U.C.K… how perfect is that!?!

Part of their favors were nuts for their guests to munch on during cocktail hour. On each cup, it said “We’re nuts about each other.” So cute!

UCLA vs. USC

Ungar is a dancer, so of course you can expect to see some dancing at their reception. The guys danced to “Nobody” by Wondergirls.

And the girls danced to “Sorry Sorry” by Super Junior. And… umm…. check out Lynn’s gorgeous 2nd dress made by Escada! I want!

One more amazing dress… by Marchesa. Lynn looked incredible in all her dresses!

This is probably one of my favorite photo op backdrops ever. Looks just like them!!

Last by not least…. check out their beautiful wedding video… courtesy of Flick N Roll.

Super big thanks to the awesome vendor team that made Lynn and Ungar’s wedding a reality:

Sorry for being completely MIA in March! Between Mel and I, we were pretty much gone for the entire month. I went to Asia (Thailand, Hong Kong, and Taiwan) for 2 weeks. Right after, Mel went to Italy for 10 days. So we’ve spent the past couple weeks playing catch up!

But there’s no better way to come back from a hiatus than to blog about Janice and Jeff. Janice and Jeff are getting married next week at Terranea, one of our favorite venues! We’re been itching to go back since Lynn and Ungar’s wedding in March.

Janice and Jeff… what can I say about them besides the fact that they are great clients! We hit it off right when we met and were so excited when they booked us. (Big thanks to Angeline and Michael for introducing us! Can’t wait to see you guys at the wedding!) Planning with them have been so fun. They are BOTH full of great ideas. Yes both of them! I love it when a groom is involved as much as the bride is. Makes the wedding feel much more personal. It has been such a smooth ride and a fun time getting to know these two.

It also turns out that we have so many mutual friends besides Angeline and Michael (thanks, Facebook!) No wonder we got along so great… it’s like the saying “You’re as good as the company you keep” and the geometry transitive theory  (if a=b and b=c, then a=c). Since we keep a lot of the same company and know so many of the same people, it’s only right that we know one another and get along well.

Anyways, onto the eye candy. Thanks to Henry Chen for these photos. Can’t wait to work with you again!

PS. Competely unrelated, happy birthday to my dear friend Caroliney!! xoxo!
