Angelica & Marco’s Wedding | Citizen Hotel, Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament & Tsakopoulos Library Galleria

Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-116

Two weeks ago, I got to photograph Angelica and Marco’s wedding in Downtown Sacramento and it was nothing short of a fairy tale.  Marco is tall and handsome while Angelica is beautiful, kind and has the biggest heart. Since Angelica is a teacher, it is only appropriate that the theme resolves around books: classic literature books for her and comic books for him.

Here’s how their day unfolded:

Since Marco didn’t want to see Angelica until she walks down the aisle, they booked 2 separate rooms at the Citizen Hotel and got ready there. Since the guy want to go with the superhero theme, it is only appropriate that their boutonnieres looked like this, right? #mostcreativeideaeverSacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-9sacamento wedding citizen hotelwedding at citizen hotel sacramento

Once hair and make up are done, both Angelica’s mom and mother-in-law helped her put on her wedding dress. Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-30Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-31wedding day citizen hotel sacramentocitizen hotel wedding day preparation

After the dress is on, Maggie, Angelica’s hair stylist, helped her put on her veil.

(10 months ago when Angelica and Marco booked me for their wedding, Angelica was thinking of not wearing a veil at all. However, I suggested that she should since it’ll help complete the look. I had scoped out some locations and I think a long cathedral veil flying in the wind would make for some really cool shots. Little did I know, for her wedding day, Angelica’s mother and mother-on-law joined forces and made her a custom cathedral veil full of beautiful details.)Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-44Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-51citizen hotel wedding photosSacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-52

Look at all that lace!Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-41

And of course, all of my bride has to have a gorgeous leg & shoe shot. After all, she did spend a lot of money on those gorgeous heels and pedicure. ❤Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-43

Once the bride is all done, we are off to the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament for the wedding ceremony.
It was a gorgeous day for a wedding.

I love how big she smiled when she saw Marco.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-70Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-76Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-77Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-78Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-79Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-80Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-82Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-83Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-84Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-85Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-86Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-87

If you zoomed in on the picture below, you can actually see a drop of tear on Angelica’s hand.

If it was tear though, it was a tear of joy because our bride was all smiles that day.

Look how big her smile was right after it was pronounced that they are man and wife. So here comes the first kiss:

Right after the ceremony, we took family photos while everyone was still around.

Once we’re outside, it’s time for some fun formal portraits. The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament has the most beautiful steel doors which made an awesome backdrop for some photos right outside of church.

Since we’re already in Downtown, we walked from K Street to the Capital and along the way, these are the photos that we got. Before the wedding, I scoped out some locations that I thought are really pretty and send those suggestions to the couple. They were open to trying anything so that’s exactly what we did.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-124 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-125 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-126 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-127 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-128 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-129 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-130 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-131

These were taken at the Leland Mansion. Since another group was there taking photos too, we used what we can and made the best out of it. I’m in love with the architectural details here.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-132 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-133 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-134 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-135 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-136

Don’t know why but I just love the way she laughed here.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-139 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-140 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-142 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-143 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-144 Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-145

This is still at the same location, except it’s right around the corner from where we were at. It’s amazing how you can turn and literally get a totally different setting. This is why I love Sacramento so much. The city is so diverse and it has so many beautiful outdoor space.

We couldn’t go without a funny jumping picture. Look at Ozzy!

These guys make up the best bridal party ever! There was nothing but jokes and laughter the whole time. They were super comfortable with me and I was super comfortable with them. They were also very good actors too. Normally this is where I’d have them do the “walking and laughing” shot but since the space was so limited, I asked them to stand in one place, lock hands, look at each other and pretend to laugh as though they were having a really good time. TWO tries and we were done! BAM!!!! #bestgroupever

Henry, my husband and second shooter, took these pictures of the guys and I am really jealous because they are so freaken awesome! I asked him if he came up with these ideas or did the guys came up with them? He said the guys did but since he read and watched so many Marvel comic books and movie, the poses came out naturally. Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-169Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-172Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-171Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-170

Each book is different from the other because the bride has been collecting them for a year in preparation for this day. She even got an old school typewriter for the main sign in table.

After dinner, Angelica sang a song to her husband:Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-193

After that, her sister and her nephew dedicated a song to the newly wed called, “Por Amor” which means, “For Love”. It’s a really sweet song that talks about all the things that we are willing to do for love. And they really rocked it because look at the way it made Angelica feel.

Marco’s Dad got in line to dance with his daughter-in-law:Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-217Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-220Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-221

As a Mexican tradition, all the single ladies got in line, held hand and ran a couple round around the room before the bride tossed her bouquet.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-223Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-224Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-225Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-226Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-227Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-228

Yup! That’s a granny panty that he just pulled out.

Marco got some tricks up his sleeve to make the garter toss a bit more interesting too. Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-229Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-230Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-231Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-232Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-233

As for the single men, they held hand and ran around the room slowly at first then it’s faster and faster until someone fell out of the ring. Only until then can the groom toss the garter.Sacramento Wedding Citizen hotel Blessed Sacrament Downtown Sacramento-242
