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!

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!

Melak + Ikana, February 19th, 2017, Palladio Banquet Hall

It is always such an honor to be invited to join in the way different cultures celebrate marriage. We were thrilled to be apart of this for Melak and Ikana’s Ethiopian reception. These two celebrated their union at the luxurious and decadent Palladio Banquet Hall in Glendale. The couple were as surrounded by love as they were by vibrant colors and jovial laughter that echoed across the room. We are so happy for these two, and wish them the best in their new life together!

Jillian + Richard, Feb 25th, 2017. Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

Jillian and Richard tied the knot at one of my FAVORITE places. Calamigos Ranch. Filled with all of the glittering, twinkling lights, and whimsical woodland fantasy a wedding Pinterest board could ask for. The evening glittered with much more than just lights, though, as the loving couple filled the room with their smiles and laughter after they said their vows.  We were honored to be apart of such a warm and fun-loving couple’s special day. Best wishes, Jillian and Richard!

Deara has been a long time client of ours and we were so honored to be apart of her special day with new husband Armando! This beautiful wedding took place over the course of two days, the first day being a Nigerian cultural ceremony. We had the privilege to peak into the family’s history and culture as her family surrounded her for this unique and beautiful event. The next day we followed Deara and Armando to the Natural History Museum where the freshly bloomed gardens and brightly colored maple trees created a haven of dancing, smiling and so much love to celebrate the marriage of these long time lovers. Best wishes Deara and Armando!
