Jenn + Jon’s Big Bear wedding was the definition of radness! We submit our support for that statement as follows:

1) Jenn + Jon’s wedding was like being on a see-saw of hilarity and sentimentality. It was like every second of the day was filled with laughter or happy tears. We suspect that their wedding was like that because [see #2]
2)  Jenn + Jon are great people. They are funny, sweet, laid back, and fun. Hanging out with them on their wedding day felt a lot like hanging out with old friends.
3) Jenn + Jon’s wedding was a super intimate gathering of close friends and family (and us) in an awesome cabin in Big Bear. Don’t get us wrong, we love big weddings with huge parties. But, small weddings tend to really pull at our heart strings in a unique way.
4) We got to shoot a Big Bear wedding! Joe actually lived in Big Bear for a few years growing up, but he hadn’t been back for years and we have never been up there together. So, it was great to get an excuse to head up there the day before Jenn + Jon’s wedding so we could scout for locations to shoot and walk around The Village to see how the town has changed over the years.
5) Their dog wore a tuxedo for their wedding. As dog lovers ourselves, we felt that this merited its own line on the list of awesomeness.
6) Jon played the saxophone for Jenn at their reception! She had never heard him play before and he was really good! :)
7) Instead of wedding cake, they had pies from the Pie Hole in LA. They may have sent us home with an earl grey pie. The rest of that story is shamefully delicious, so we will stop there.
8) And last, but certainly not least, our final pieces of evidence:

As wedding photographers, we hear a lot of quotes and sayings relating to relationships and marriage. One of our favorites is “there is someone perfect for everyone.” One thing that really struck us from the moment we met Abby and Avi is that they are absolutely perfect for one another! Like peanut butter and jelly, or ice cream and diddy riese cookies. :)

As is always the case with weddings at Maravilla Gardens, we had a great time shooting with Abby and Avi! Enjoy! :)

Sasha and Jason’s wedding at The Fig House Los Angeles was so full of win. We don’t really know how to even articulate how awesome these two are. Really. HOW?! If we tried to write it all out in narrative, it would take pages. So, we are breaking this wedding down into fun size bites of awesomeness:

  • They got married at a killer new venue: The Fig House Los Angeles.
  • Sasha walked out to “Somebody to Love” by Queen. Rockin’ it like a boss.
  • THEY ARE SO IN LOVE THAT I HAVE TO TYPE IT IN ALL CAPS! MOAR EXCLAMATIONS!!!!!!!!
  • They had donuts and a taco truck at the wedding. Yes. Donuts AND a taco truck.
  • You might notice a lot of teary eyed photos below. They anticipated this and their hashtag was #sobfest2014.
  • Sasha specifically requested some crazy awesome party photos of the reception dancing and a sparkler light painting.
  • The story of how they met is scientific proof they are soul-mates (it includes a slightly intoxicated Sasha, an acting class, liquor store coconut water run, and internet dating… in that order)
  • They are so damn Foxy (in two ways..they are literally Mr. and Mrs. Fox).
  • Some of their friends sang to them and Sasha sang to Jason at the reception.
  • We could keep going and going and going… Instead, just look at the photos.
