Hello! I'm Stefani

welcome to my blog

Noor, Pasadena | Wedding | Paige + Eric

Every time I think of how these two met, my jaw just falls back down to the floor.  Their amazing romance is so deserving of an amazing celebration and that is exactly what their wedding day was!  The celebration took place at Noor, an incredibly beautiful venue tucked away in Old Town Pasadena.  Their ceremony site was nothing short of unique, with beautiful drapery, columns, vines and greenery enclosing you in a private and intimate space that is centered around an amazing water fountain.  I mean, what more could you ask for?  The reception took place in Noor’s ‘Sofia Ballroom’, which again proved to be an incredibly beautiful and unique space (wait till you see it below!) – which was so perfectly fitting for this couple!  This venue simply blew me away!

It was absolutely wonderful to witness all of the friends and family that came from all over to be a part of Paige & Eric’s celebration.  Not to mention all of Eric’s military friends – to have them all in one place cheering him – how special is that!?  The amount of love and support from all of their friends and family was astounding and so beautiful to see.  The whole day ran very smoothly thanks to the lovely Madeline Hunter and Eric’s gorgeous mother Robin, who put so much blood, sweat and tears into making sure this day was as wonderful as it was!

Paige & Eric wanted a party and boy did they get one!!  The reception started with a bang when the couple entered the room to Guns N’ Roses and then mid-way through their first dance broke out into a surprise-choreographed-dance for everyone (which had me in stitches, A+ for commitment guys!!)  and it somehow managed to just get better and better from there!

If you haven’t heard their love story, you can read all about it here!  There aren’t words to accurately describe how wonderful this day was… so instead, I will leave you with their wedding images!  Enjoy!!

Paige’s grandmother, Nita, sported an awesome necklace she said represented both Paige & Eric.  I love it!!

Such a sweet First Look!!  Every bride dreams of this reaction from their groom… Paige, you are obviously so very loved!  <3

When you give him permission to check out his ridiculously gorgeous wife… ;)

Talk about a beautiful couple – inside and out!

The incredibly cool and unique ceremony space!

The top of the chuppah had the tallis from Eric’s father, grandfather AND great grandfather.

This projection was such a cute touch to the room!

All of the military men!  You guys rock!

It was so much fun seeing one of our past couple’s, Sarah + Dave, and their gorgeous family again!!  They were all out on the dance floor just killing it all night!  ;)

Eric & Paige, you two are so lovely.  Its been such a joy getting to know you and getting to capture these memories for you.  The amount of love you both have not just for one another, but also your friends and family is abundantly clear and you are so obviously loved in return.  Your wedding was definitely one for the books and I’m so honored to have been a part of it!  I wish you two all of the love, laughter and adventure this world has to offer!  <3
