One of the treats of being a preferred wedding photographer for Wayfarer’s Chapel is that during June, typically a busy wedding month, we get to visit the beautiful grounds on the bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean that much more frequently.
Case in point, of the three weekends in June so far we have been privileged to have worked weddings on two of those weekends. The most recent was Michelle and Matt’s wedding last Sunday when they were blessed by having the most beautiful portrait light for their wedding photos.
As is the case with many of the couples that choose this beautiful venue for a wedding ceremony, this couple chose the Wayfarer’s Chapel because of its stunning architectural beauty and gorgeous views. As a matter of fact, the chapel often is referred to as the Glass Chapel, the Glass Chapel in the Forest, or the Glass Chapel by the Sea because of its architectural make up and its location.
Caught in the Moment Photography has been honored to be a preferred photographer of the Wayfarer’s Chapel for over a decade not only because of our style and excellent customer service, but because we are so familiar with the grounds that we are well accustomed to working within the time constraints of the chapel.
It is this familiarity, respect for the sanctity of the grounds, and our unique photo style that blends the right amount of photojournalism with traditional wedding photography that has earned Caught in the Moment Photography a place on the preferred wedding photographer list at Wayfarer’s Chapel.
The South Bay Event Professionals recently held their quarterly meeting at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel and Caught in the Moment Photography was there as one of the preferred wedding photographers recommended by the host venue, sometimes referred to as the Glass Chapel, the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel.
The South Bay Event Professionals is a group of event professionals that gathers once a quarter in different venues around the South Bay in suburban Los Angeles to network and share information. The events professionals range from wedding vendors such as florists and DJ’s to wedding photographers, caterers and event venues.
As it was to be expected for this meeting at this venue, the emphasis was definitely on weddings. The Wayfarer’s Chapel is a magnificent, elegant, venue for a wedding. Any time of day both the grounds and the chapel are beautiful; but this event was purposely scheduled for evening time so that any of those adjectives would be inadequate when trying to describe the stunning light that envelops the chapel and the warm glow that emanates from within that make this glass chapel in the forest such a magnificent place for a special occasion.
Caught in the Moment Photography has been fortunate and honored to have been doing wedding photography at the Wayfarer’s Chapel for well over a decade. It is because of our experience on the grounds, our respect for the solemnity of the chapel and the occasions that the wedding coordinating staff at the beloved glass chapel in the forest, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean recommends us to their brides and grooms. Caught in the Moment Photography loves being wedding photographers at the Wayfarer’s Chapel!
Caught in the Moment Photography and White Sakuras took part in the Hotel Maya Wedding Open House recently along with a selected group of wedding professionals. White Sakuras is a floral designer based in Huntington Beach specializing in weddings, although based in Orange County, Long Beach is certainly within their local area..
White Sakuras and Caught in the Moment Photography are two of the selected wedding professionals that the staff at the Hotel Maya is actively referring to their brides and grooms. The reason these two wedding experts have been chosen is their experience not only in the wedding industry in general, but specifically in the Hotel Maya; along withe their attention to every detail relating to customer service. These two wedding vendors also go hand in hand with the overall feel that the venue has. The Hotel Maya has that unique resort feel, which means that it can either cater to a beach wedding or to a more traditional wedding theme.
During the recent wedding open house Caught in the Moment Photography was fortunate to share display space in one of the rooms with White Sakuras which gave us the opportunity to interact in a more relaxed situation than when in the middle of setting up for, or doing the photography at a wedding. We realized that our values and practices align very closely and are both proud to be part of the team of wedding professionals referred by the wedding consultants at the Hotel Maya. We look forward to many happy events in the South Shore of Long Beach!
Patrick and Audrianne got married at Wayfarer’s Chapel a little over a decade ago and Caught in the Moment Photography was honored to be a part of their wedding day as their photographer. They recently celebrated their ten year anniversary in a unique celebration that harked back to their wedding at Wayfarer’s overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a bluff top ceremony and once again gave Caught in the Moment the honor of participating in their special occasion.
Audrianne wanted to do something special and unique, something that would celebrate not only their many happy years together but also that celebrated all of their family and friends who have provided guidance and inspiration with their own relationships. She asked all the married ladies in attendance to wear either their own wedding gown or a gown that closely resembled a wedding gown; and their grooms, in keeping with the seaside celebration theme were to wear island attire.
The result was a fabulous ceremony where not only Patrick and Audrianne renewed their vows but ALL of the couples in attendance got an opportunity to think back to their own wedding day and renew their promises to each other and to their friends and families.
Although their guests did not have the wonderful experience that Patrick and Audrianne had of getting married at the stunning Wayfarer’s Chapel; on that day they got to partake on a bluff top ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
It flattered and honored us to have been invited to be photographers for the occasion. It was fun reminiscing with them about that beautiful evening overlooking the Palos Verdes coastline leading to their candlelit ceremony at the beautiful glass chapel, the Wayfarer’s Chapel.
