Mick and Anthony met at work. Although, their work is a bit more intense than most. They are both cops. So naturally, Mick, wore a gorgeous gown, beautiful jewelry, cathedral length veil and had a tiny little gun strapped to her ankle. She was given away by her mother who cried and said the most touching speech, while he was given given away by his two sons.
Their wedding was short and sweet yet full of love and laughter.
After we met their sweet pups down on the beach behind the Dana Point Ocean Institute for some family photos and some gorgeous bridals! The wind was crazy but, these two were like super models out there on the rocks.
They had an intimate reception in their backyard, dinned on bbq and laughed the night away.

Dana and Amy flew from San Fran to San Diego just to get eloped. San Diego city hall is of the only only ones that has an outdoor area to get married at. Unfortunately, it was raining... The sun can out right before they were about to start their ceremony and despite begging and pleading to use the outdoor space, they wouldn't let us. They still had a heartfelt and romantic ceremony in city hall. After, we walked around downtown and headed to the train station for some fun, vintage photos. Amy's bouquet was made entirely of antique broaches, pins and earrings, she wore her mothers slip from the 60's and white searsucker dress with pearl buttons. Dana had a custom made suit that was something that Don Drapper would be envious of, along with a boutonniere made of vintage pins, and custom embroidered argyle socks with their wedding day on them.
The whole felt like an episode of Mad Men and was absolutely perfect.

Catherine and Duff wed in a tiny ceremony in the courtyard of their private villa at the iconic Parker Hotel in Palm Springs. They had their 3 dogs, their very best friends, and their friends dog in attendance. Catherine was wearing the cutest tea length dress with stunning heals and had a bouquet full of succulents. Their cake was a blackberry syrah cake made from their favorite bakery up in Santa Barbra. A huge storm was rolling in to Palm Springs and it was a very gloomy day but their love shined as bright as the sun. As their officiant, Charlotte (who I love and have worked with a couple times in the Palm Springs/Joshua Tree area), was talking about how they are each others shelter from storms, the clouds opened up and started sprinkling on them. It was really beautiful. As they had their first kiss as husband and wife, their friends huge dog ran up to get in on the love sesh.
The beautiful Bates wedding was held at the Galvin Estate in Palm Springs. The whole wedding had a vintage Hollywood glam feel and the bride looked like a silver screen Hollywood siren. They married under the stars in the shortest and sweetest ceremony that I have ever seen, officiated by a close friend. After, a mariachi band entertained the guests as they dined by candle light.. The movie Psycho played on a projector screen and the guest were all given popcorn to enjoy while watching. <3
The wedding of Christian and Stephanie took place at sunset upon the Athena Yacht in Newport Harbor. The color red, which means happiness and luck in Chinese culture, was everywhere and they had a traditional tea ceremony to signify Stephanie joining his family and Christian joining her family.
After dinner tequila was flowing and the gambling tables opened up. They cruised Newport Harbor under the stars and danced the night away.
After meeting online 12 years ago and being engaged for 5 years, Curt and Darlene finally tied the knot in a romantic candle lit wedding at The Village Garden in Redondo Beach. They dined on tacos and mini pies while mingling with their closest friends and family.
The wedding of Jillian and Uziel was full of forest fun! They rented out the whole YMCA Round Meadow camp in Angleus Oaks. Their wedding weekend was filled with zip lining, hiking and enjoying nature.
This adorable couple met while Jillian was going to college in Wisconsin where Uziel is from. Even though they didn't like each other too much when they first met, they soon fell madly in love. They now live in Wisconsin together with their 1 year old son.
Most of the wedding was d.i,y, from the bouquets to the bridal party doing their own hair and makeup. The food was catered by the YMCA staff and it was insanely good!
The couple and their guests danced the night away under the beautiful starry sky while drinking a Wisconsin craft brew beer and enjoyed a smores buffet around the camp fire.
