The Queen Mary was once a benchmark for elegance and luxury traveling across the Atlantic Ocean, filed with the richest and most famous people during its time. This beauty and elegance is what drew Crystal and Andres to have their wedding on California’s historic ship. This 40’s themed wedding could not have taken place in a better setting. Crystal and Andres took us back to a much simpler time, and you really felt like you were in a different world with all the attention that went into the details. Crystal and her girls were gowned head to tow in the most beautiful vintage style, while Andres and his groomsmen were perfectly groomed and dapper.
The weather was perfect, and we had the deck to ourselves with an incredible view of Downtown Long Beach as our backdrop for Crystal and Andres’ first look. We love being able to capture these moments with our couples. The first look is an incredibly intimate moment, and watching these two share that time together, and talk with each other before the ceremony, and before anyone else sees them has always been one of our favorite moments.
We felt so honored to have been part of their big day. I (Ulices) have known Crystal since the 3rd grade. There is a very powerful feeling of joy and happiness we get from being able to share these special moments with people we have grown up with our entire lives. Crystal and Andres have a beautiful relationship, they were surrounded by so much love and support and we had the best time dancing, laughing and capturing their day.
