Tamar and Gary were married on the famous helicopter pad at the Marina Del Rey Marriott. We love the Marina hotels because of their beachy feel and salty air. And, it doesn’t hurt that we live about 8 miles away.
This wedding was weather perfect and the photos at Mother’s Beach are so lovely. The reception was a great success with the help of Susan Du Bois’s, Masta Band.
Two of our all time favorite Next Exit couples were at the wedding getting their groove on (Sandy and Lev, married at Calamigos Ranch back in 2004) and (Elena and Jeff, married at Saddlerock Ranch in 2009)!

Lotso love to the new happy couple!

Shooting Danelle’s wedding was like shooting for my own family. I’ve known the Fishers for over 20 years! I adore each and every one of them and I couldn’t be more happy and excited for the wedding couple.
The wedding was a beautiful and traditional lunchtime event at the Bel Air Luxe Hotel, seamlessly coordinated by Judith Feldman and Sarah Leibsohn.

The Chateau Le Dome is an amazingly intimate place to have a wedding. Located on the stunning Saddlerock Ranch property in Malibu, Chateau Le Dome is the smallest venue and can only hold a little more than 100 people. From it’s beautiful rustic house, to its lush adjoining vineyards, Chateau Le Dome weddings are a stunning affair and a pleasure for us to photograph.
Amanda and David, had just such a wedding.  With the help and love of Angel Swanson, coordinator magnifique, they transformed the already magnificent wedding venue into a fairytale.
From the custom printed everything, to the candles in green peas, from the cake table to the crazy cookie station, and don’t forget the “guestbook” wine bottles. Everything was planned with love.
Top it off with a gorgeously sweet couple, and it’s a perfect day. We love Amanda and David!

Speaking of a perfect day, do I even need to mentioned that it rained during their photos and ceremony??? Nobody stressed and it just added to the excitement. Yes, Rain. In Los Angeles. In July It went from 90 degrees to rain back to 90 degrees. During the ceremony everyone took their beautifully designed hand fans and re-purposed them for a few minutes as umbrellas and in five minutes when the rain stopped, they were transformed back into fans. Nobody skipped a beat.
