05.15.2010 Mia and Jones Aquino

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

I have to say that Mia and Jones was one of the most hilarious and most interesting couple that I have worked with to date.  The couple was actually scheduled to work with another wedding coordinator on site, but a few months prior to their reception I had the pleasure to take over their account.  Even though our relationship together was short term, our personalities clicked instantly.  They are one of those couples who seemed to enjoy the entire wedding process, but at the same time did not loose fact of what was most important, and that was uniting their love for one another.  My two most memorable moments with this couple was: #1 receiving late night (hysterical) emails from the bride and #2 Mia tearing up when she saw her reception and whispering to me “oh my gosh, its like platinum weddings, but not”.  I am so glad that I got to be a part of such a memorable wedding.  Attached are some pictures from Mia and Jones platinum wedding.

I met Patty and Johnny few years back when I shot their wedding at the St.Regis Hotel in Monarch Beach.  Even though they live far away, we still kept in contact.  I was so happy for them when I found  they had a new baby girl Riley and  I feel especially honored when she told me she wanted me to shoot her family picture.  Congratulation Patty and Johnny and a happy 1st birthday Riley.

These are some of the wedding album design layouts and pictures from their shoot:
