The Best Princess Parties

Published by in Events ·
Tags: MakeAWishSanMateoMarriott

Little Joysee's wish was to be a princess and meet Elsa and Anna from Disney's Frozen. With the planning of Wish-A-Wish Foundation and generosity of various vendors, Joysee celebrated her surprising 5th birthday at the San Mateo Marriott. Kurty Photography is happy to be a part of the team in making her wish come true.

Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and change the lives of the kids they serve. We first learned about the foundation from Batkid, Miles Scott, an American child and cancer survivor who is in remission. Miles wish was to be "Batkid", a sidekick to superhero Batman. The city of San Francisco kindly supported the event on November 15, 2013 for one of the largest and most elaborate Make-A-Wish projects ever staged. It was truly awarding to contribute our photography skill to make a difference for the kids.

Hollywood Style Wedding in LA

How fun it was to travel to L.A. to photograph a Hollywood style wedding, along with special guests as George Clooney, Brad Pitts, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. The moment the wedding couple Bi and Jimmy walked on red carpet to the grand reception, they were interviewed by chatty Joan Rivers along with paparazzi (so what if they were impersonators).

The zen and intimate ceremony was held under the summer's sun at Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. The wedding couple exchanged their wedding vows on the moon bridge as guests witnessed surrounding a peaceful pond filled with Koi fishes and white cranes.

The Hollywood theme grand reception at Hilton San Gabriel was the highlight of the night. Giant movie posters starring Bi and Jimmy as the casts prominently displayed by the reception entrance. When the newly wed entered, Robin Thicke performed "Blurred Lines" as the newly wed whirled on the dance floor for their first dance, followed by Lady Gaga shaking the entire ballroom with her greatest hits. It sure was one of the most memorable weddings we have photographed, and we could do this every weekend!

What a beautiful and lovely wedding couple! We just couldn't stop taking photos of them. Crystal looked like a goddess with her hair curled and down in a heavenly white gown. The wedding was held at the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel. We started with preparation shots with Crystal and the bridesmaids at the suite, and followed them down to the lobby by the grand staircase where Dan the price charming met his bride for the first time. The ceremony was held at the rooftop garden in the hotel, and they had an hour of cocktail at the Cirque room. Followed by a grand reception dinner at the Crown Room.
