Fernando + Antonella are an all-around lovely couple and their wedding was equally lovely. They are sweet, their family is sweet, their other vendors were sweet, they gave us cookies that were delicious… their wedding was just wonderful from start to finish! It was also filled with beautiful moments like when Antonella gave Fernando a journal that she wrote in every day for the 100 days before their wedding. How sweet of a gift is that!?!?

Joe also got his new favorite nickname: the Cabbage King (No joke. His Pokemon Go username is CabidgeKing). Ironically, there was absolutely zero cabbage at this wedding… but we digress.

We could go on, and on, and on about these two and their wedding. But, this is a wedding photography blog, so we will shut up and get to the pretty pictures! THE CABBAGE KING DEMANDS YOUR ENJOYMENT! :)

    Jasmine - Talk about dreamy. These two are ridiculously adorable together.ReplyCancel

When couples contact us, we always send them a questionnaire that gives us information about their wedding so we can check our availability, etc. One of the questions on that questionnaire is “We would love to know more about your wedding plans, especially what you’re doing to make your wedding special or unique for you. What do you envision your ideal wedding to be like? We love details, so don’t be shy!” It is probably the most irrelevant question in terms of checking our availability, but we love to see what couples have planned for their wedding. Our dirty little secret is that we also love reading our couples’ answers to that question right before we photograph their weddings to see whether their original vision survived the planning process. Many times, the differences are night and day. We thought you could be the judge of whether Alia + Milton made their dream wedding come true:

“We want to be a little off beat, a little rustic.. That is us…we are practical…we like to do things ourselves and get our hands dirty… We are big backpackers and love being out in the woods. We also love to dance, even though both of us are huge nerds and not very good at it–except for ballroom– we took dance lessons for 6 months in ballroom for fun. It’s a shame that no one ever just busts out a waltz at parties. We would be all over that!… We are both super creative people with odd senses of humor who nerd out on the weekend and we are trying to make our wedding reflect that. We want to incorporate a sense of humor in the affair, but also keep it earnest. We want to focus on the natural elements as much as possible and bring the outdoors into the ceremony. We want to involve a lot of creative touches with signs, lighting, music choice, decor, etc.”

We think they nailed it!

    Jasmine - Loving this dream of a location. So many gorgeous natural details and such an immensely rad landscape.ReplyCancel

Westlake Village Inn + Walnut Grove + Tracy + Todd = Happy Marianne and Joe.

Tracy + Todd had some super classic style going on and Walnut Grove really was a perfect fit for the look they were going for. Of course, they both looked so stunning and are such a sweet couple that they could have had their wedding at a 7-11 and it still would have been a beautiful day! :)

Enjoy!

So, you know that thing where you show up to a venue thinking that you have shot there before because the name is super familiar, and then you get there and realize that just about everything looks totally different than you expected, and then someone tells you that the venue went through a massive remodel, but they think it happened a while back, so you photograph the venue all day and leave without ever actually figuring out whether you have photographed that venue before? Oh… Not a common experience? Yeah… we wouldn’t know anything about that either…Luckily we love shooting at new places either way!

Anywho! Alanna + David’s Palos Verdes Golf Club wedding was pretty great. We got to do a lot of our favorite things: hang out with an awesomely sweet couple and their friends and families (obviously!), do a night photo with Alanna + David and a rad vintage Rolls Royce, find and photograph Alanna + David in beautiful area at the venue that we had never seen anyone else shoot before, see a beautiful ceremony and toasts filled with tears and laughter, and so much more! It was an all-around great day. Check it out!
