Alexis + Oscar May 21st, 2017, Eden Gardens.

In this exotic, magical hidden gem of a venue, Alexis and Oscar said their vows surrounded by romantic fountains, twinkling lights and even some wild peacocks! The real magic and glow that spilled from these walls, though, was the love and adoration that never left this couples eyes every time they looked at each other (which was all night). We couldn’t be more happy for this wonderful pair. Congrats Alexis and Oscar!

Breanna + Jeffrey, Mountain Meadows Golf Course, May 28th, 2017

The moment these two locked eyes on the aisle, Mountain Meadows lit up with the magic of their love. We were so honored to be apart of this special day for Breanna and Jeffrey. The two said their vows in front of a majestic view of the mountains and celebrated with the warm surroundings of their loved ones under twinkling lights right before lighting the dance floor on fire for the rest of the evening. Congrats Breanna and Jeffrey!

Mary + Eli, Santa Monica Pier, May 14th, 2017

Over the cliffs and through the sandy beach of beautiful, windswept Santa Monica, Mary and Eli laughed and danced and kissed their way around it all. We had a beautifully bright and colorful session with these two and can’t wait for their RAINBOW themed wedding in March! Though these two are already colored with so much joy and love, we can’t wait to see what magic they bring to their big day!

Dominique and Roderick, March 17th, 2017, Cal State Long Beach Japanese Gardens.

Dominique and Roderick made their vows over the sweet lull of trickling water ponds, and celebrated into the night under the magic of the stars. Cal State Long Beach’s Japanese Garden was a beautiful, hidden gem and a perfect accent of romance to light up the day for this wonderful couple. The two were completely absorbed in the magic of their day and the light of their love. We wish you two the best in your new life together!

Allison + John, Rancho Cucamonga, April, 1st, 2017

Amid the epic, rolling hills of Rancho Cucamonga, I was fortunate enough to spend an evening celebrating Allison and John on their special day. They said their vows over the sunset of Rancho’s Central Park, and danced their way into an evening filled with magic and laughter. Their special cocktail hour even featured blackjack and poker tables! I was so happy to be apart of such a fun evening with two beautiful people. Congrats, Allison and John!

Stephanie and John,Grace Simmons Lodge, Nov 5th, 2016

Stephanie and John’s wedding was illuminated with golden rays and the soothing sounds of rushing water in the background of the Grace Simmons Lodge. This unique and intimate wedding was filled with flowers, laughter, sunlight and love as Stephanie and John said their “I do’s”. Following these two around, it was hard not to feel the joy that glowed from them both as their hands never separated and eyes could barely stay off each other. We were so honored to be apart of this special event and wish Stephanie and John the best!

Joyce and Obed – June 20, 2015 – Covina, CA

Joyce and Obed tied the knot at the Village Covenant Church in Covina, CA, with the reception following at the historic Park Inn. Their large group of family and friends turned out for both the ceremony and reception and everyone had a great time. I’ve rarely seen a bride and groom smile so much in one day 🙂
