Halloween Wedding {Steven + Samantha} Pasadena Masonic Temple Wedding

I have to say this was the coolest wedding I have ever photographed in my 17 years of business.
Steven + Samantha wanted a Halloween Wedding. They planned for over a year to make this event the talk of the town. Each and every detail was perfect and made for a spooktacular evening.

Samantha, the bride is absolutely beautiful. She is a make up artist and she did her own makeup for her wedding. Steven, the groom, is a tattoo artist. It was such a joy to photograph this wedding held at the Pasadena Masonic Temple. I have been photographing for Steven and his family since Steven was a little boy. It truly was an honor to watch him marry the woman of his dreams.

The venue for this Halloween wedding was ideal. The Pasadena Masonic Temple was built in the early 1900's. The mahogony wood, arched ceilings and Roman Gothic architecture made for really cool photos.

Samantha walked down the asile to the Dsineyland's Haunted Mansion's version of Here comes the bride. The low fog made for an eerie ambiance along with the spooky lighting done by Jay from The DJAy Company.

The candy bar was filled with horror treats and ghouls. The bloody wedding cake featured Frankenstein and his bride at The Monster Ball. The low lying fog continued throughout the lower level of the Masonic Temple and made for an exciting grand entrance.

Steven and Samantha really made each and every detail of this wedding come together and I was really impressed by their creativity.

I would highly receommend the Pasadena Masonic Temple for weddings and events. It is spacious, grandious and very beautiful.

I would like to thank my husband Mark and my associate shooter Bill helping me photograph this special Halloween wedding.

I wish Steven and Samantha years of happiness and a life filled with new adventures. xo
