nguyet + nien | taglyan cultural complex hollywood + pasadena city hall wedding

nguyet & nien‘s wedding at the taglyan complex in hollywood is one of my all time favorites…from the details to the location, everything was amazingly beautiful!

i love capturing all the details of a wedding as i feel that this is what makes each wedding unique with its personal touch. nguyet & nien are such a beautiful couple and complement in each and every way. after the ceremony at st. vincent de paul in huntington beach, nguyet & nien chose to have their wedding portraits at pasadena city hall and it was perfect! the wedding reception at the taglyan cultural complex hollywood was so gorgeous and extravagant with florals from three petals. see below for some of my favorite images from nguyet & nien’s beautiful wedding!
