Shutters on the Beach Wedding Photography, Santa Monica

The forecast called for rain but luckily the storms stopped at around 3:00 and the sun came out. The sky was brilliant and moody. Skylana & Andy tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica.  Lovely Skylana wore an amazing light pink dress and stood with her two daughter's as everyone watched the new family come together. At the altar, Andy gave the two little girls rings before giving one to Skylana.
Pretty vintage mason jars from a local flee market made sweet centerpieces.. The couple brought their blue vintage bikes to the cocktail hour where the guests wrote wishes on cards and tied them to the handlebars

Beverly Hills Courthouse Wedding

Last spring I photographed a lovely courthouse wedding at the Beverly Hills Municipal Courthouse.
Julia and Carlos were married in an intimate ceremony attended by a few close friends. There is something very special about being part of such a small, informal wedding.  Julia made her bouquet out of daisies and wove a daisy chain for her hair. They both wore all white. Afterward, we walked around the corner and took portraits in a beautiful secluded garden area at the courthouse. The neighborhood is rich with pretty landscaped areas and the Beverly Hills public library makes a picturesque backdrop.
When Julia came to pick up the photos she brought me a huge piece of homemade coconut cake!
