0168_Sally_Ryan_Wedding_0922This was such a fun day!! We were looking forward to Sally and Ryan’s wedding from the moment they booked us. Not only was this a day full of joy, love, and the celebration of two really (really) sweet individuals- it was downright beautiful!! Tiato is such a lovely space! Everywhere you look, there are unique little details and the courtyard full of twinkle lights was pretty dang magical :)

Sally and Ryan- your wedding is one we will always hold close to our hearts. We feel so fortunate to have met you both and just know you two have the brightest future ahead of you!

0715_Madeline_Nick_Wedding_3924I can’t believe we’re just blogging Nick and Madeline’s stunner of a wedding!! These lovebirds were married over the summer and this day was definitely a PARTY! Even though Nick and Madeline used to live in LA, this was a destination wedding for them and their family and friends, so they really wanted to make sure it had a Hollywood vibe…  Siren Studios was the perfect location for that with it’s sprawling rooftop views of Los Angeles (seriously- the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory were the backdrop to their ceremony:)) We loved the black and white color palette with pops of coral all designed beautifully by the team at Poppy and Plum. Most of all, though, we just really loved this couple. Nick and Madeline are two peas in a pod! They are easy going, love to have a good time, are crazy about each other, and were truly such a joy to work with.

Now onto all the photos!! There are quite a few of them so sit down with a cup of coffee (or whiskey if you want to feel like you were at the party) and enjoy!

0535_Tara_Andrew_Wedding_2627

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- one of our favorite ways to meet to new clients is through a referral! Tara and Andrew were introduced to us through mutual friends (one of them being a past client of ours!) and I have to say, this was one of our favorite events of the year! These two are smart, quick to laugh, definitely know how to have a good time, and love each other with every fiber of their beings- so our job was made pretty easy :)

This wedding was full of personal touches. Tara’s friend, Melissa of Madmade Designs, did the most amazing job putting this whole evening together and her Maid of Honor, Mia with Oceanus Jewelry, made Tara’s wedding band along with all the beautiful one of kind necklaces she gifted to each of her bridesmaids. They even did the flowers themselves!! We were completely blown away with all of the beauty and talent and love that went into making this one heck of a celebration!

Tara and Andrew- thank you so much for inviting us along to capture such a FUN day. This truly was a celebration of love and friendship and we feel so incredibly grateful to have met you both!!

Myra_April_Wedding_2938I am not sure I can properly convey how very special this day was… Our job is pretty dang incredible. We get to be around people who are madly in love and document the celebration surrounding them! But when Myra came to us to ask if we would at all be interested in capturing her and April’s wedding, my heart swelled with joy :)I’ve known Myra for the better part of my life and she might as well be family, so seeing her as happy as she is with April is seriously the most amazing thing!

Their wedding took place at one of the most gorgeous properties we’ve seen on a perfect, warm fall morning… Surrounded by trees and all their loved ones, April and Myra exchanged some of the most heartfelt and beautiful vows we have ever heard. The rest of the morning was full of laughter and TONS of hugs- and DOUGHNUTS!! You could literally feel the excitement in the air and to say we were honored to be there to capture all the love would be the understatement of the year :)

Myra and April- We are beyond thrilled for you guys and absolutely cannot wait to see all the adventure that life has in store for you!! Love you beauties with all our hearts xoMyra_April_Wedding_Blog_51_94Myra_April_Wedding_Blog_84_374Myra_April_Wedding_0008Myra_April_Wedding_Blog_22_487Myra handmade her bouquet, flower crown, and all the boutonnieres!!

1118_Christiana_Jonathan_Wedding_6953Well, now. This day was a total dream :)  From the moment we met with Christiana and Jonathan, they mentioned they wanted their wedding to feel like an escape to Italy! Christiana has spent quite a bit of time out there and has so many wonderful memories and really wanted their wedding to represent such a special place to her!! Between the gorgeous architecture of Westminster Presbytarian and stunning grounds of Villa del Sol d’Oro, we were overwhelmed with all the beauty surrounding us (and took about a zillion pictures!).

One of the best parts about our job are the people we meet along the way. Christiana and Jonathan are two of the kindest, most genuine people we’ve ever had the privilege of working with. And with an incredibly talented group of vendors behind them, they had one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve ever seen! Lush florals, yummy italian food, a beautiful dress with an equally impressive train:), bocce ball, and a killer dance party… We couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces the entire day!

During Christiana’s father’s speech, he said something that I think every bride and groom need to hear. He asked them to stop. To look around them. And to take it all in. This seems simple enough, but really resonated with us. Weddings can take so much time to plan, they can be expensive, hours (and hours and hours) can be spent on pinterest and other wedding inspiration blogs… but at the end of the day, you are surrounded by all the people you love most in the world. A wedding is a true celebration of love and commitment and that in itself is really incredible.

We can’t thank Christiana, Jonathan, and their families enough for welcoming us as though we’ve been friends for years!. And most importantly, thank you for being a reminder of why we love our job so very much… Now on to the million photos:)

Jonathan had to use the restroom before their first look and the only way to get there from the groom’s room was to walk through the room where Christiana was getting dressed!  I love her face
