Jaymee & Mike at Dove Canyon Country Club

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!Venue (ceremony): St. Kilian Catholic ChurchVenue (reception): Dove Canyon Golf ClubWedding Planning: Ciao Bella Wedding Planning & EventsFloral Design: Cargo CreativeVideography: Sparkle FilmsClassic Car: Classy Chassis RentalsLighting & Drapery: Illuminated EventsLive Music: West Coast Music Beverly HillsHair & Makeup: OC Hair & Makeup

Fire Garden Wedding Photos, Adara and Tom

Adara and Tom wanted to model their wedding after the relaxed good-times feeling they typically enjoy at music festivals, so it was no surprise they picked an offbeat ranch-style estate as their venue, ordered wild-looking arrangements from their florist, used a food truck for their dinner, and a live band for their guests' entertainment. Attendees were also treated to an open bar, a massive and delicious wedding cake designed by a friend (complete with sweet marzipan mushrooms), and of course our Open-Air Photobooth with nerdy props nodding to Tom's love for Doctor Who and comic books. Last October it was pretty hot almost all month, so I was concerned it might be an uncomfortable day so far from the beach air---however the weather turned out amazing! Mild temperature, beautiful sunlight filtering through the trees for their ceremony and photo sessions, and a cool breeze at night to level off guests as they got down on the dance floor! Looks like Adara and Tom ordered up the most fabulous wedding day possible!Venue: The Fire Garden, Bonsall, CACoordination: Neon Carrot EventsFloral Design: Third BloomCaterer: Miho GastroTruckCake: Kim CraneLive Music: Leroy & the Bad Bad BrownsBride's dress: Amy MichelsonBride's jewelry "sandals": Jewelry by Sedra

The Center Club Costa Mesa Wedding - Lori and Nick

I love how down-to-earth and mellow Lori and Nick are! I think Matt and I somehow attract all the coolest couples who don't sweat it when their wedding schedule gets a little crazy and the weather gets a little hot and humid. Humidity adds a nice cheery glow to the cheeks, right? Right?Venue (Ceremony): Forty Martyrs Armenian AposVenue (Reception): Center ClubFloral Design: Designs By TriciaCoordination: To Love & Cherish, Inc.Video: One Plus One CinemaCake: Cinderella Cakes

In Honor of Steve

Last month Matt and I were truly saddened to hear that Steve, the father of our May 30th client Wendy, passed suddenly during a motorbiking expedition in his native South Africa. Shortly thereafter, Wendy designated her favorite picture of the two of them together (which we created at her wedding) as her new profile picture on Facebook in his memory.We only met Steve on Wendy's wedding day, but he was a bright spark of a personality, full of mischievous grins, funny suggestions for photos, and visibly beaming with love, joy, and pride for his daughter that day.  Matt and I glad to have met him, and are so, so honored that our images of him with his family on Wendy and Sean's wedding day are treasured by Wendy and her family.  This is among those times where it's hard to express the value of moments captured like this one, and how rewarding it is for us as photographers to have been able to give Wendy and Sean something that is so important to them, especially now.Rest in peace, Steve!
