Summer has officially begun! Finally- some wedding photos!

Thursday was the longest day of the year. Yesterday I went to the beach with my hubby & some friends and got some sun on my prego belly. Yep- summer has begun. Wedding season started much earlier though. I am actually over half way done with my wedding season: 13 weddings down since February and 9 to go. I start my maternity break in September which seems far away, but judging by the speed these last two months went by, it will be here before I know it.

The last few weeks have been crazy for me! This week alone, I had 4 events in 7 days! So, I am very far behind in my blogging.

Here's a fun wedding from the beginning of the month:

Endren & Caohien are a fun couple from Dallas who had a beautiful wedding- ceremony at the gorgeous Wayfarers Chapel & reception at a Chinese restaurant in Cerritos. I had such a great time with their outgoing wedding party and also with their amazing team of vendors.

I am pretty sure that got to witness history as well. Michael Norwood, who is an incredible photographer and an all-around nice guy, has a package option where the bride & groom can leave the reception with brand new his & her ipods, loading with the images from their wedding day. It is so cool. Now- what could make this cooler? How about adding the video from their wedding day. Daniel from DV Artistry blew everyone away during the reception with a video of photos and interviews of the bride & groom as well as footage from that day. I have never seen a videographer do a same-day edit. It was awesome! Guests were blown away to see the first dance included in the video, as it had just taken place a half hour before. These two guys decided to pull together and do something fun and different, and Endren & Caohien got to their reception with both their photos and video. So cool!
Check out Michael & Daniel. They are incredible.

Here are some of Michael's photos from that day:
