Kerry was determined to do her wedding right! She and Mark selected Mark’s home church Bethany Lutheran in Long Beach as well as the gorgeously renovated Old Ranch Country Club for their respective ceremony and reception venues, and researched and hired talented vendors such as Flower Allie florist, HD In Vision videography, Beauty and the Beach hair and makeup services for the gals, Station Identification DJ service, OC Limo transportation, Wedding Paper Divas for the stationary details, and Cinderella Cakes bakery for the cakes. ¬†There were so many creative details with splashes of rich purple color I thought my shutter finger was going to fall off photographing it all!

    If I had a son or daughter who were about to get married, I would certainly consider old country club wedding photographers to cover the wedding. The photographers did an above average job.I really liked what I saw, they didn’t miss a thing, and they captured the mood and took advantage of the location. The joy was felt in the pictures, great job I will tell friends and family about this talented group of creative people.

  • that oldsmobile is really bad ass… nice choice of get away car guys…
    by the way, love your socks!!!
