Gay Wedding Photographer | Walt Disney Concert Hall

Glen and Paul had the most amazing gay wedding, planned in the most elegant way. The Patina Restaurant Group Catering at Walt Disney Concert Hall was perfect in every way, a brilliant team of event experts lead by the lovely Jill Halferty. Wedding Planner, Michael Willms of Entertainment Design Events, and his dynamic team, assisted Patina in producing the most effortless affair. There were so many Hollywood VIPs in attendance, but we’ll keep name dropping to a minimum (writers of The Muppets, Star Trek, the new Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG-1, The Dark Crystal) which brought out all kinds of dork in my husband. Glenn is also a screenwriter and Paul is an animation artist and the Art Director of Disney’s new upcoming feature, Bolt. Sweet! It was an absolute dream to be their gay wedding photographers.
Okay, so, Glenn made this blog post pretty easy for me because I asked him for some personal factoids and he gave me the following (as only a writer would!) There was more, but I had to edit it down… ha ha.

“We’ve been together for almost 14 years. Our wedding was the best day of our lives! Our young nephews and niece kept thanking us for getting married and making them cousins. Our big dogs are still more excited by dinner than by our being married, but they seem pleased enough. My wedding band is half of my late father’s wedding band, and half new gold; Paul’s was made to match.
It’s so important to us and to our entire families that we’re finally legally married. Nothing could be more wonderful, powerful, meaningful or special. It’s been a long wait. The celebration was pure joy, but the only cloud on the horizon is the possibility that our marriage could be taken away from us now — unless Californians vote no on Proposition 8. “

Now on to the talented vendors.
Officiant: groom’s friend, Larry Mantle, host of AirTalk on KPCC 89.3FM
Ceremony Music: Caliente guitar trio, de Bois Entertainment
Band: The Tony Galla Band, de Bois Entertainment (crazy, but Tony was in OUR wedding band 6 ½ years ago!)
Cake: Leslie Maynor of Fantasy Frostings (one of the best cakes to ever grace my mouth)
Flowers: Rosalie Stern of Flower Dec
Lighting: Walt Disney Concert Hall’s in-house lighting people and Brian So of G2 Audio & Lighting
Linens & Chairs: Carlos Novoa at Tabella Design
Tuxedos: Richard Lim of High Society Custom Tailor
