San Gabriel Mission Wedding Photos | Don & Catherine

What can I say about Catherine & Dondino. You may remember their beautiful San Juan Capistrano Mission Engagement session. One Of my favorite sessions of ’09.  Catherine wore a beautiful Oliver Tolentino Couture Gown.  She looked stunning. The Ceremony was beautiful as ever  held at the historic San Gabriel Mission.  Initially Catherine wasn’t comfortable with seeing Don prior to the ceremony.  After some smooth coaxing by Don the plan was set. They Both did their first look at Mission San Gabriel prior to their ceremony.  I like to prep my grooms a little before they walk over to their beautiful bride.  Most of the time the guys are pretty nervous. Don was an exception.  So I kind of remind them of things to think about when they first see their bride and it never fails either the groom or the bride or both get emotional.  I find the “First Look” a great opportunity for the bride and groom to talk to one another and and enjoy each other while not having to worry about their day’s schedule.  It’s also a great time to capture real moments, reactions, tears, smiles and even warm hugs.  This time it was extra special for me because they were both hesitant against their first look. I’ll never forget the hug that I received from Don at the end of the day thanking me for convincing them to go forward with it.  Thank you Don & Catherine for choosing me to take part in your wedding day!
