Santa Monica Wedding // Gloria & Brian

Here is what I love about Gloria & Brian’s wedding.  It was so truly THEM.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  Although these two are total brainiacs (they met through a mutual friend while visiting Duke and ended up going to business school there together), they are FULL of personality (and hilarious btw) and put every ounce of  themselves into their wedding!  Some of my fav’s:  the “heritage” table,  the wine glasses made out of mason jars that came from Brian’s family’s home in Michigan, and of course… their amazing first dance which they choreographed themselves.  Yes.  this is one talented couple!!  Even the VENUE was chosen to match their style… vintage, yet modern.  It was a super amazing day.  Fun from the beginning to end!

Now these two are off on yet another adventure (they love to travel).  Gloria & Brian are moving to Indonesia for work.  So exciting! So now they can take a weekend trip to Bali whenever they want.  How many people can say that?? :)  Enjoy their Same Day Edit!

Destination Wedding England // Louise & Jona

I absolutely adore this couple.  I feel like we bonded before we even met them.  Two of the most genuine people I know!

Louise & Jona are Scottish (if you couldn’t tell by their accents) but now reside in Abu Dhabi because of Jona’s work.  They wanted to have a destination wedding for all their friends and family so they picked the south west coast of England in order to have the best chance for good weather (plus it’s kinda gorgeous there).  They also wanted to avoid a “cookie cutter” wedding, so they (ok mainly Louise LOL) ended up planning a very unique, relaxed, yet elegant day for all of their guests.

The funny part is that the weather in the UK this spring was literally cloudy, rainy, and cold for something like 90 days straight.  It was like this when we arrived there.  But on the wedding day, the clouds broke and we had a gorgeous day of weather and light.  It was a dream.

The wedding day itself had a really cool and different schedule.  The ceremony took place in the early afternoon, and then guests enjoyed cocktails and lawn games before the reception.  The reception was a sit down dinner inside Polhawn Fort with some of the best toasts I’ve ever heard in my life (Seriously… people from the UK know how to give a toast.  I should know because I’m married to one and our best man was Alex’s best friend from his childhood.  He gave a great toast at our wedding.)

After dinner, it was outside for more cocktails and lawn games while the room was re-set for the party.  The dancing, eating, and drinking continued until late into the evening.  It was a total blast to work with this couple and I know we will be friends for a long time.  It was also great fun to travel with and work alongside our good friend Victor Sizemore.  We shared a lot of great food and of course pints plus a lot of great laughs along the way!

Ohio Statehouse Wedding // Lindsay & Kurt

Who knew that Columbus, Ohio was such a charming city?? Although we were only there a couple days, I can honestly say I wouldn’t mind going back.  We had perfect weather too which was a major bonus!!

Lindsay and Kurt were basically hand picked to be a perfect match for each other by Lindsay’s friend Carrie.  The funny part about their first meeting is that it ended up being coincidental!  Kurt just happened to be at the same bar that Carrie and Lindsay were also enjoying happy hour.  This was totally unplanned but let’s just say that once they were in the same place at the same time, sparks started flying.

Lindsay owns a bridal boutique in Columbus called La Jeune Mariee.  I actually received two inquiries for her wedding… one from Lindsay, and one from her sister Stacy who is also a fan!!  Both of them are seriously amazing and so are their families!  We had a FANTASTIC time shooting this wedding… everything about it was just gorgeous and so genuine!  And a big highlight for me was working with Kacey from Bliss Event Co.  I have been dying to work with her for awhile and she did an outstanding job!

Enjoy their Same Day Edit!

Private Estate Wedding // Alicia & Joel

Isn’t this couple stunning??  Alicia and Joel are crazy about each other which made shooting their wedding so much fun.  Alicia was not one of those brides who said, “I’m not sure what my style is…”  oh no.  This girl had every single detail planned out perfectly from the look of the event down to the whisky bar at the reception.  And it happened to take place at a family member’s almond orchard in Bakersfield – in a tent that became a totally romantic room.  Yes… when you watch this film you’ll see how amazing it all turned out.  It also helps that Alicia is a pro wedding planner with Details Details so no stone was left unturned.  Only a pro could turn an ordinary orchard into an elegant and gorgeous evening for everyone.  Oh and did I mention that it was a crazy fun night?  I heard people were still dancing at 3am!!  Congrats Alicia & Joel!!

The list!!
