Caitlin and Alex’s Wedding, Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, Long Beach

Most people who know me know that I’m passionate about travel, so I love when I have clients like Caitlin and Alex who share my passion.  Caitlin worked in Cambodia for the Peace Corps and Alex is from England (who came to this country to become a helicopter pilot).  I thought the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden (CSULB) was the perfect venue for guests coming from both near and far to celebrate their union- it’s such a lush, tropical and romantic location for a wedding!  It also happened to be the perfect location to represent the bride’s Japanese heritage (along with many other details, like the origami paper details, chopstick favors, and Taiko drummers during the reception). Thank you Caitlin and Alex for letting me be part of your day!

Here are some of the other wonderful vendors that contributed to their wedding:

Wedding Coordinator: Wendy Rhodes Events

Wedding Gown: Mary Me Bridal

Hair: Sunset Boulevard Salon

Florist: Devynn’s Garden

Emilie and Tyler’s Wedding, Huron Substation, Downtown Los Angeles

A lot has already been said about Emilie and Tyler’s fantastic wedding at the Huron Substation in downtown Los Angeles.  This wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty, but I wanted to post my own blog entry since there were so many quirky and original details that this couple chose for their wedding (coordinated by wedding planner extraordinaire, Amanda Ma, of Pasadena-based Fresh Events Company).  I really loved capturing the vibrant colors, as well as the artsy and engaging personalities at Emilie and Tyler’s wedding!

Katie and Peter’s Wedding, Lakeside Golf Club, Burbank

There were influences both near and far for Katie and Peter’s wedding at the Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank.  The bride’s parents were also married by the same minister and have been longtime members at the Lakeside Golf Club and the groom and many of his family and friends flew in from Australia.  Wedding planners Laura and Garry of A Diamond Affair did an amazing job merging the two for a day that was both spontaneous and spunky, while West Coast Music kept guests dancing late into the evening.  I love working with couples that are so affectionate, to say nothing of the beautiful bride and gorgeous light on their wedding day!
