Kate and Jon stumbled across this wedding site a little accidentally–it overlooks a cove where Jon surfs. The springtime “superbloom” and the view of the cove close to sunset make for some spectacular scenery, so this spot is one of my new favorite ceremony sites! Bonus: Can you peek Kate’s adorable baby bump?


This wedding was drrrrrrrripping with beautiful golden sunlight. I love this venue! Bride and groom Jessica and Ryan also ensured their event was the perfect balance of Star Wars geekdom and classic elegance, with a custom Star Wars cake topper and lightsaber First Dance as well as statuesque floral centerpieces and “little black dress” bridesmaid attire.

If you’ve worked at enough weddings you’ve probably seen a groom (or best man, or groomsman) jokingly pretend to have lost the rings when the time comes during the ceremony to present them for exchange. Well, the look of shock on Robert’s face was the realio-dealio because when he felt around in his pocket he couldn’t locate the rings, at first. Fortunately they were there (just hiding!), bride Courtney was completely unfazed, and the rest of the ceremony continued smoothly against the backdrop of Laguna Beach’s beautiful coast.

I have been meaning to blog this sweet session for a while now! As his mama told me, Everest was so named because “I had to climb Everest to have him.” His beautifully decorated nursery had some pristine window-light, so it was definitely not a mountainous struggle to get some splendid newborn photos of him!

One thing Jaymee and Mike pull off easily is looking effortlessly glam, with a lengthy veil, lace-sleeved dress, and classic Rolls Royce. Glam is actually a pretty good way to describe the whole wedding, in fact!

It’s not every weekend we get to photograph a tea ceremony with the most fun-loving couple in Los Angeles. Polaroid snapshot requirements for the seating chart, photobooth with silly props, Jenga, beloved pooches in the wedding party, and a reception beer challenge…no guest was spared from this Randi and Terry’s sense of fun and mischief!
