Liz and Chris’ Wedding, St. Bernadine Catholic Church and the Woodland Hills Country Club

Sweethearts Liz and Chris got married on a beautiful fall day at St. Bernadine of Sienna Catholic Church in Woodland Hills and then headed over to the quaint and historic Leonis Adobe Museum for their photos.  I loved shooting at the Leonis Adobe for it’s rustic vintage charm.  Afterwards, the couple and all of their guests headed to the Woodland Hills Country Club where guests partied the evening away.  City of Commerce Flowers provided the pretty pink flowers, Hills Beauty Club did an amazing job on the bride’s hair and make-up, and Manna Bakery made the scrumptious cake.

Carrie and Andrew’s Wedding, Firestone Winery, Santa Ynez

This is a wedding that I did a little while ago, but I always love the relaxed elegance of weddings up in the Santa Ynez wine country, so I wanted to make sure this wedding made it onto my blog.  The ceremony took place at the Old Mission Santa Ines and the reception was held at the Firestone Crossroads Estate.  The coordination was done by Joy of Joy de Vivre and the catering was by Pure Joy Catering (one of my all-time favorite catering companies).

Anna and Ryan’s Wedding, Rincon Beach Club

When I met Anna and Ryan, I felt an immediate connection with them – probably because we share a spirit of travel and adventure (for they’re honeymoon, they opted to go travel around the world for a year and I also travel as frequently as I’m able).  I loved how their wedding at the Rincon Beach Club also reflected their casual elegance (barefoot beach wedding) and love of travel (they named their tables after their future honeymoon destinations). The lovely cake and flowers were by Christine Dahl Pastries and Rincon Floral, respectively.
