Sun and Chris: beauty and elegance at Maderas in Poway, CA

Sun and Chris, both from Korean families, decided to celebrate with a primarily western ceremony and they chose the beautiful Maderas Golf Club in Poway for this elegant celebration.  From the creamy white bouquets, to the soft pastels of other floral arrangements, to the flower girls crowned with wispy babies breath, the day had a sweet softness that I could tell was such a beautiful reflection of the relationship between these two.  Both Sun and Chris are so darn nice!  But then again, they’re also funny (perhaps even wacky) once you get them started.  What a joy this day was to photograph.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!

I love photographing Jimmy Choos!

Sun, who looks stunning even before she’s dressed, inspects the flowers and is pleased with the results.

What a beautiful and fun group of ladies!

Sun’s and Chris’ mothers wore Traditional Korean attire for the ceremony.  So beautiful!

Chris and Sun exchanged their vows in a lovely ceremony, set against the beautiful hills

The gorgeous pastel table decorations were perfect in this country club ballroom.

And from this soft elegance we come to… a CRAZY grand entrance!  :-)

“Daddy’s little girl”

Sun and Chris – it was so much fun spending the day with you two.  We loved getting to know you and your loved ones and could tell that everyone was so supportive and happy for you.  It is clear that you have such a special relationship in that you are constantly looking out for what will make the other happy.  That is such a beautiful thing to see at a wedding because you know that it reflects your future married life together.  We wish you so much happiness and are so grateful that we could be there at the start of a beautiful new family.  Thank you!
