Cory & Bobby: Viva Las Vegas!

Twelve years ago, during my freshman year of high school, I remember waiting outside my high school for my mom to come pick me up when up came bouncing over with a big smile, a tiny little Phillipino girl who so enthusiastically introduced herself, "Hi, I'm Corinna!" With the comfort of her smile, I knew from then on we would be friends.

Fast forward, sophomore year, Corinna leaves my high school to attend another high school. Through high school and college, the extent of our communication was through random emails. It wasn't until last year, we finally said, um, we still live in the same city, let's get together! And all these years later after not seeing her since my freshman year of high school, we still picked up as if no time had ever been lost between us. Corinna still had her perky gorgeous smile, and this time when we met, she had a perky gorgeous engagement ring on! During our lunch, she told me all the juicy details about her fun wedding to Bobby she was planning in Vegas, with an Elvis impersonator and all, and then asked me to shoot their fabulous wedding.

Below are a handful of my favorite photos from their day. Pics from their post-wedding luau are still to come soon!

Here's the slideshow of their day!

I'm also excited to announce that Corinna will be trashing her dress next week for a special upcoming publication about me getting "trashy" with my brides!! Stay tuned for more details on the hot article in the works!!

Notice the shoes in Corinna's mom's hands. Cory was a "run-to bride" as she literally ran through the Bellagio trying to make it to her ceremony on time in the chapel half a mile away.

After they were announced "husband and wife," Cory let out a big "YES!"

Elvis serenades Cory and Bobby for their first dance.

My favorite picture of the night with Elvis!

Here's a picture of me and the girls from bridesmaid, Lori, whose wedding I will also be shooting in 2009!
