Glamorous Beverly Hills Wedding - Tara + Sergio - Los Angeles

  I got to be a part of Tara and Sergio's most glamorous love affair. Mixing Old Hollywood charm and their own modern aesthetic, the day had the perfect mix of iconic nostalgia.

The bride and groom spent the morning separately, leisurely getting ready at the Montage, Beverly Hills with family and friends.

Tara and Sergio's comfort and ease with each other was beautiful. It was like seeing two people coming home. They were all smiles and sweet kisses before their ceremony.

The cutest flower girls donned their flower crowns with their sparkly, lace white dresses.

The architecture of Grey Stone Mansion and the Bride's sleek dress was perfect.

In a special personal touch, the bride's brother ordained the ceremony adding lots of laughs and sweetness.

Sweet Anaheim Hills Wedding - Korryne + Keller - Orange County

I am so excited to share with you some highlights from Korryne and Keller's wedding! Marine and southern stud met Socal beauty Korryne, a no fess, laid back, say it like you mean it woman...Keller was hooked and how do they say it?--the rest was history! These two know how to have a good time and their wedding reflected just that. Priorities were made for this day and it was all kinds of fun, filled with dancing, laughter, and heartfelt tears. This is what love looks like!

 

Blessed by southern California rain in the weeks prior, the beautiful canyon where their ceremony took place was lush and green.

 

 

 

 

Chandeliers sparkled above their heads as they smiled, laughed, and shed a few tears.   

The kiss.

Enjoying a few intimate moments together after becoming husband and wife.

Love capturing those in between moments like this. 

Driven away in chic red falcon...

First dance goals.

Mother of the bride's tears matched her daughters as the father-daughter dance took place. 

Bride and groom were surprised with these Mr. and Mrs. cups when they took their seats.

Grandma on the bride's side, shared with me she wore this same dress to her wedding and wanted to wear it here for good luck to the young couple! 

A little selfie action on the dance floor.

Romantic San Juan Capistrano Wedding - Mikaylah + Evan - Orange County

This was one of those weddings were I went home and I was so happy with what I do. I am a firm believer that photography should be one of the biggest investments in your life. It might be from the many many times my family would look through the giant albums my mom made, but photographs have always been a big part of my life. I love looking back and being able to recall a memory because of a photograph or asking about an image that goes beyond me and learning something about my family history. When I began photographing weddings, I felt like a part of history. These are the images tell a family's real story.

Mikaylah and Evan's wedding was by far a favorite of mine. There was so much family, so much love throughout the day. The baby of all her sisters, Mikaylah was surrounded by her best friends for life. As the evening progressed the bride and groom danced surrounded by all their nieces and nephews. It was truly a sweet, sweet affair that will be remembered fondly from all different perspectives, all different generations.

Below are some highlights...

Alta Vista Country Club Wedding - Katie + Brandon - Orange County

It was all smiles and laughter, as Katie and Brandon prepared for their nuptials at Alta Vista Country Club in Orange County, California. There is not a better word I can think than to describe their day but-- perfectly happy! The bride, Katie lounges between makeup and finishing hair.

 

What a gorgeous ring! Here it sits atop pearl covered converse sneakers that the bride wore allowing her to dance the night in style and comfort.

Mama, sis, and maid of honor help the bride into her dress.

I love the effort couples put in. It's the little details that really make it yours. Check out the cute hanger.

Katie, you made such a stunning bride!

The bridesmaids wore navy mismatched dresses.

Flower girl sweetness!

In traditional fashion, the bride and groom waited for the ceremony to see each other.

The groom, Brandon eagerly awaiting.

Smiles right before walking down the aisle.

The flower girl was also their daughter and stayed close to Mama's side throughout the ceremony.

Alta Vista Country Club's spacious green golf course was such a beautiful backdrop to showcase the couples portraits.

 

The cake was navy with gold to go with the rest of the wedding design.

The couple sneaked out for a few moments to themselves.
