Church Wedding

Lomita, California
Claudia and Tony were married at the beautiful St. Mary Margaret Church. Here the beaming bride is surrounded by a bustle of activity around her.

Claudia's mom gives her the blessing.

As I waited with the bride, Michael took these photos of the cute flowergirls and handsome ringbearer walking down the aisle.

Claudia's mom and brother walk her down the aisle.

I love this photo of Claudia.

The flowergirls sit quietly next to the maid of honor.

Claudia and Tony had a traditional full Catholic mass which included readings,

the gospel, and homily.

Then came the vows.

Tony looks so serious...

as does his new brother-in-law.

The rings...

and the curious ringbearer.

The priest blesses the wine for the Eucharist.

Everyone held hands during the Lord's Prayer.

Tony's mom gives him a big hug during the Sign of Peace.

The priest gives communion.

Claudia says a prayer to the Virgin Mary after presenting her with flowers.

Then all the guests pray for the couple.

The kiss

The newlyweds walk joyously down the aisle in a photo taken by Michael.

Tony looks like he's sighing with relief.

The Happy Couple
