Photography: Sealed with a Kiss

_sealed_with_a_kissThis photo of my fiance and I was taken in 2010 at Wayfarers Chapel, also known as “The Glass Church” in Rancho Palos Verdes. Thanks to the tripod and remote control for making this shot possible! 😀 Hehehehe! I wanted to give the photo a modern vintage feel to it and I love the trees in the background but I had to blur the background in order to make the “photobomber” less visible :D. Well, the person isn’t really photo bombing us. It just so happens that a lot of people were also visiting this historical landmark that day and there were actually two weddings that afternoon as well. It’s a really beautiful church overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

More info below about the historical church from Wikipedia:

Wayfarers Chapel, also known as “The Glass Church” is located in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. It is noted for its unique modern architectureand location on cliffs above the Pacific Ocean. It is part of the Swedenborgian Church of North America and serves as a memorial to its founder,Emanuel Swedenborg.

The church was designed by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright) in the late 1940s and was built between 1949 and 1951. Additions were built in later years, including a tower and a visitor center.

As with many of Wright’s buildings, the chapel features geometric designs and incorporates the natural landscape into the design. The Wayfarers Chapel is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Because of its scenic location, the church is very popular for weddings, both in the chapel itself and also outside on the chapel grounds.

The church was featured in the Fox teen drama television series The O.C., as the site of weddings and funerals. It was also featured briefly on the American science fiction television series Sliders.

Here we are sitting by the fountain at the back of the chapel. We had to leave because the wedding party had just arrived. As you can see, there is a limo in the background.
