Zina + Drew


Zina and Drew had a beautiful wedding at Castle Green, a historic landmark in Pasadena.  The wedding was filled with laughter, joyful tears, and celebration!  But most of all, love, their love for each other, family and friends.

It was such a privilege to witness and document these two wonderful people became husband and wife.  Zina made their big day extra special with lots hand-crafted goodies – She made personalized banners for photos, printed their own photo album as a guest sign-in book, and the best of all, cute little props for their photo booth hosted by LA Portrait Booth.  I personally think the highlight of the day was when Zina and Drew lighted candles at the beginning of their ceremony as a remembrance to both of their late fathers.  Many shed tears as Jose, the officiant, retold stories of their fathers.  Another highlight was one of the best man toasts by Drew’s younger brother, Brad.  He mentioned how much they are alike and how each of them inherited a part of their father’s character. But what separates Drew from the two brothers is that he got the kindness from his father.  A genuine kindness that even I can echo for just spending two days with him.  After spending one afternoon with him at their engagement session, and almost a day at the wedding, I can’t agree more that Drew is truly kindhearted. He always tries his best effort to make sure everybody around him feels comfortable, with a genuine smile!

The Cotton Love team was so honored to be part of your big day, Zina and Drew!  Congratulations!
