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!

Details, Details, Details!

A wedding can be a great production. So many little things must come together in order for this incredible event to take off. From the big purchases like the bridal gown, to the intricate little pieces that make the whole day sparkle with magic. Pinterest has really become a hot spot for the clever and inventive DIY decorations that have been popping up at many weddings. Here are a few of the details we’ve come across and fell in love with ourselves.

Maria + Guillermo, April 29th, 2017, Knollwood Country Club

Maria and Guillermo were one of those couples that were an absolute delight to work with. Their laughter and love was infectious to all of those around them, and seeing the way they just looked at each other was something inspiring. I have no doubt these two have a bright and loving forever to look forward to. Congrats Maria and Guillermo, we wish you the very best!

The Griffith Observatory, a proposal…

It’s always fun to step away and do something a little different, and especially fun when you get to capture the scene of the proposal! This lovely couple flew all of the from Vancouver, Canada to have a special trip together. What she didn’t know? He was planning on making it extra special. The Griffith Observatory, she told me through happy tears, was her favorite place on earth, and he now made it even more special. Congrats Jovan and Gabrit! Thank you for inviting me into such a special moment!

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!

Melissa and Ricardo, Oct 28th, 2016, Imperial Palace

Melissa and Ricardo ended our Autumn season with a golden glow in the air and romance singing through the falling leaves. October was one of our busier months this year, and we were so honored to have one of those days set to spend with this sweet and adoring couple. We ended the evening at The Imperial Palace in Pasadena, a regular now for us, where these two were surrounded with so much family, love and warmth. We wish these two the best in their bright future together!

Araceli and Manny, Oct 7th, 2016, The Odyssey Restaurant

The Odyssey has been a regular for us this year, and it was just as illuminated and magical as any other time we’ve shot there for Araceli and Manny. These two said their vows at the bright and airy St. Bernadine’s church and the whimsical day flowed into the magical, starry evening as they danced, laughed and never left each others side. We were so honored to share in this lovely day and wish Araceli and Manny the best in their new life together!
