We had the pleasure of photographing and filming Jenny and Steven’s beautiful wedding The Beautiful Historic Hotel Del Coronado. The Hotel Del has been known for its classic and timeless ambiance. The combination of this unique venue and the playful chemistry between the couple made shooting this wedding a once in a life time experience for us!

Steven, at what moment did you realize Jenny was the one?

We had been together for about a year when I realized that she IS the person
I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Jenny, what were you feeling when you were walking down the isle?

As I was walking down the aisle, I was trying to focus on not walking too fast.
I just wanted to be up near my fiance and feel the security of his hands in mine.

Steven, what was the most memorable part of the wedding for you and why?
The most memorable part for me, was when Jenny and her Dad made their way down the aisle:
the handshake, the hug, and the exchange of hands.
I’d been waiting for that moment since I knew she was the one for me!


Jenny, what was the most memorable part of the wedding for you and why?

The most memorable part of the wedding for me was when I finally made it down the
aisle and got to hold Steve’s hands while Pastor Lowe spoke,
and then of course the kiss afterwards.

We had a fabulous time with Ilana and Eric on their wedding day at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes.
The view of the ocean from the cliffs paired with the strong winds from the sea made for some very dramatic shots! We even
spotted a whale pod in the distance that made the day even more magical. Our favorite part of the day was taking Ilana and
Eric out for their romantics because the wind played so well with their sweet and playful chemistry.

Ilana looked so stunning in a Turkish-made wedding dress and hair and makeup by the girls at Dollhouse. The ceremony
was beautifully officiated by Rabbi Michael SternfieldRestaurant Christine catered a knockout meal and the cake by
Torrance Bakery was both beautiful and delicious!

Eric & Ilana, we wish you the absolute best!

How did you two meet?

Meet Jeremy Pangilinan.

An inspirational photographer, climber and mutual friend of Eric and Ilana. Jeremy also turned out to be the matchmaker of this happily
ever after love story. One day in February 2011, Jeremy had made plans to meet Ilana and prior to these arrangements had been climbing
with Eric at our local climbing gym.  Last minute, Jeremy asked for Ilana to meet him at our local java fix, The Coffee Bean,
but Jeremy was not alone.

Ilana met up with Jeremy and Eric. The trio talked about nonsensicle things and amongst these things Jeremy segwayed the conversation
into one about Eric’s upcoming plans to volunteer to save baby sea turtles in Mexico. A volunteer opportunity that just so happened to lie
within a world class surf epicenter, Todos Santos. Eric needed a last minute volunteering partner in crime with surfing experience and within
two weeks time their passports were stamped and they were saving baby sea turtles which was code word for surfing three times a day.

DISCLAIMER: No baby sea turtles were injured in this matchmaking hoopla.




Tell us about your proposal

In Ilana’s words:
0600 on September 11, 2013

After engulfing an American sized large pizza, split between the two of us, we set off for “The [Death] Slabs” approach to the base of Half Dome.
A dehydrating jaunt up the overhyped slabs left us at the base of our nemesis, the NW Face of Half Dome. We arrived just in time to refill our
water at a generous spring and cram the two of us into a one person bivy sack thanks to an unforcasted downpour accompanied by a thunder
and lightning show. The same weather system that gave me an excuse to cuddle (some may call it suffocate) Eric, left a gaggle of climbers on
the face for unplanned bivuoacs on the wall…

…Once the weather calmed we endured multiple episodes of running for cover as the climbers above dropped everything imaginable out of their
packs. As morning approached, while we hesitantly packed up camp, a loud noise indicating something flying at us from the wall above, sent us
flying to the side of the base to avoid being struck. Whatever fell from above, conveniently at first light, was likely dressed in a wingsuit because
we never heard it/he/she meet the ground. The night of endless gear/rock/human hurling left us with a surge of adrenaline and robbed us of the
desire to join the loads of climbers on the face, this time. Eric and I agreed to return at a later date to climb the Regular NW Face of Half Dome
and he set up the camera on a tripod for a self-timer shot, or at least that’s what I thought. Then he got on one knee and proposed! I said YES
and went in for a big kiss. I was so overjoyed and the rest is history.

















Why did you choose Palos Verdes as your wedding location and the Point Vicente Interpretive Center as your venue?

The ocean and outdoors, in general, are a common interest that we are both passionate about. Eric grew up in Palos Verdes,
and Ilana in Laguna Niguel, both beachside locales. So it only was fitting to pick a venue that was representative of their interests
and upbringing – a la the beach. Point Vicente Interpretive Center lies on the bluffs above the ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Fun Fact: The venue is utilized to conduct a census of whales passing through the Catalina channel for six months out of the year and a public
park space for the remaining part of the year.






What do you love most about each other?

Eric loves how outgoing and adventurous Ilana is…

…and Ilana loves Eric’s dedication and athleticism.

Venue: Point Vicente Interpretive Center
Officiant: Rabbi Michael Sternfield
Makeup: Dollhouse Hair & Makeup

I have been looking forward to Jenn’s wedding for the longest time and I think it’s because we have been friends for more than a decade!
Jenn and Chris make the sweetest couple. They bring out the best in each other and it is so endearing.

Their wedding was located at the palatial Rancho Valencia Resort in North County San Diego, one of the most luxurious staycation spots
you can imagine. We loved capturing the glamorous details throughout the ceremony and reception and, of course, their lovely romantics
where we wandered the property discovering one oasis after another.

Rancho Valencia Resort is one of the best venues we’ve had the pleasure to work with and you’ll see why in the photos.
Holly Chavez, we love you. You are a fabulous and hugely talented wedding planner! We had a great time working with Kristin Brand
and Kristy Warner who did bridal hair and makeup. You brought out the bombshell beauty in Jenn! Heather, of Wisteria Grove Florals,
stunned us with pink and cream bouquets and the table arrangements that filled the reception room with a most beautiful fragrance.
The most perfect cake for this wedding was imagined and created by Cakes to Celebrate.

We were so impressed by how seamless the event unfolded so we are sending hugs and a major thank you to everyone involved.

Jenn & Chris, we wish you two the absolute best!
xoxoxo Cean and the Team at Cean One Studios, Inc.

How did you two meet?

We actually met through my brother. Chris and my brother were in the Navy together and he came over to our house one night and we just
clicked. Chris asked my brother if he thought I would go out on a date with him and my brother said no. We started dating June 18, 2011
and Chris left for deployment at the end of July for 8 months.

Being apart and only being able to communicate via email was tough but allowed us to get to know each other on a level that most people
don’t get the opportunity to experience. We have been inseparable ever since.

Tell us about your proposal:

Chris proposed on my 30th birthday at Alexander’s on 30th in Northpark. He not only surprised me with the proposal but my sister
came down from LA and my parents drove down from the Bay Area to be there along with his best friend. It was absolutely amazing!

Why did you choose your venue?

I have been in the wedding industry for the last 10 years and wanted something totally different than all the other weddings I have done
over the years. We both immediately fell in love with the uniqueness of Rancho Valencia. The staff at Rancho Valencia was incredible
and the food was to die for.

What do you love about each other most?

We love that we truly are best friends and soul mates (as cheesy as that sounds).
We push each other to be better and are always there for each other. We have a bond that will stand the test of time and is unbreakable.
