Christine + Michael | Topanga Canyon, California

Christine and Michael are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are immediately warm and welcoming and have absolutely infectious smiles. Christine was breathtaking in a stunning Jenny Packham gown and honestly the two of them together just took our breath away. Special thanks to Myles Pettengill for bringing us in to help photograph this wedding! Coordinated by Happily, every detail was well thought out and perfectly in place and with all the oak trees on the property, The 1909 is now one of our favorite places to shoot! This wedding was full of love, laughter and drop dead gorgeousness - we loved being a part of it! Congratulations, Christine and Michael!!!

Andy + Sophia | Boulder Creek, California

This was one of those weddings that had something a little extra special for us.  It was a weekend affair in the redwoods with an incredible group of people and an amazing couple.  Andy and Sophia were married amongst the redwoods in Boulder Creek, California at the YMCA Camp Campbell.  It rained the morning of their wedding day but it did not dampen this couple's excitement and celebratory atmosphere. They ended up having to move the ceremony location from inside a redwood grove to a dryer location outside the ring of trees, but it couldn't have been more perfect.  The sun beamed from behind the clouds when they were announced husband and wife.  From the incredible couple's portraits adventuring through the forest finding a Leprechaun trail, beautiful moss covered stumps, and towering trees - to the reception that was filled with love from family and friends dancing all night long to their favorite songs played by an incredible 80s cover band.  This wedding is best described by one word: magical.  Thank you, Andy and Sophia, for inviting us to capture your truly amazing wedding day and congratulations to you both!

Melissa + Greg | Beverly Hills, California

We were so excited to photograph Melissa and Greg's wedding after having spent a morning with them for their engagement session last September (see their engagement post here). They are such a fun couple to be around with their kind spirits and love for each other enveloping everything around them. The day was full of smiles, love, and laughter with both families full of energy, love, and support for their union. After getting ready and taking some couple's portraits with a stunning sunset backdrop at the Four Seasons, their wedding was held at the beautifully romantic Il Cielo in Beverly Hills, CA. It was a fun and spirited reception all the way up to the final moments when Il Cielo's wedding chariot escorted Melissa and Greg back to the Four Seasons while being serenaded by a singer and accordion player! We had a blast photographing their wedding and wish them an abundance of love and laughter in their marriage. Congratulations, Melissa and Greg!

Pascal + Genevieve | Malibu, California

Genevieve and Stacie have been friends for over a decade and when she met Pascal, everything just fit. She was happier than Stacie had ever seen her. When they asked us to document their day we were honored and really excited. Genevieve says it best, "When Pascal proposed in a lavender field in Provence, we hadn't a care in the world. Visions of my dream gown, lavender, and lace filled my head. Things quickly changed, for the worse, and we suffered two family tragedies that made a wedding seem not so very important. After being engaged for well over a year, we decided that it was time. Why wait any longer? We wanted to do it before the year was over, which was soon - really soon. In fact, we found ourselves in the position of planning a wedding in a month! I want you to know that yes, it's possible. You can plan a wedding that is beautiful and elegant in just a few weeks. We did." That they did! With an Airbnb rental on a farm in the Malibu hills to get ready for the day and a daytime beach wedding at The Sunset Restaurant where a small group of friends and family gathered to witness their vows, their wedding was everything they hoped it would be. It was lovely and simple and filled with so much love between them and their friends and family. It's so special for us to witness the love of close friends, be there to help celebrate, and give them something special to cherish forever. Congratulations Pascal and Genevieve…cheers to a forever love.

Bethany + Chris | Burbank, California

Bethany and Chris, the rocker and the clothing designer, and their beautiful wedding at Calamigos Equestrian in Burbank, California. The bride showed her impeccable style with her gorgeous detailed lace gown, jeweled hairpiece, and brown, leather, knee-high boots. The groom performed, serenading his love with a song he wrote especially for her. Family and friends joined in the celebration playing music by request and getting down on the dance floor. The love between these two was magical and we loved every moment of documenting their day.

Ryan + Stef | San Diego, California

Ryan and Stef tied the knot at the chic W Hotel in San Deigo, California.  These two are so adorable together…the whole day was filled with so much love and laughter. The hotel was the perfect backdrop for their colorful and modern, beach-inspired wedding. The ceremony on the rooftop was rimmed by the cityscape and the reception in the elegantly modern Great Room was catered by the Executive Chef of the W Hotel's Kelvin Restaurant.  The many details in and around the hotel made for some wonderful couple's portraits and a great dance party!  Congrats to Ryan and Stef, we wish them happiness for many years to come!
