Sheraton Delfina Wedding Photography | Natalie and Greg

Natalie and Greg had a deliciously colorful wedding at one of our favorite spots in Santa Monica, The Delfina. The room decor was out of this world! But, before the guests headed over, they witnessed a beautiful ceremony at the Westwood Presbyterian Church. I’ve seen The USC band at dozens of weddings, but I can’t remember seeing the UCLA cheerleaders and the mascots all joined together for a big ole surprise!!

Every now and again, I might post a TY note from the bride and groom (which Natalie so beautifully wrote us!) but in this case, I wanted to share a very touching email that the bride’s mother sent us about a week before the big day. I hope we fulfilled all of your wishes!!

“Natalie selected you and Next Exit Photography for your creative talents, kind hearts and fun and relaxed spirits which you both reflected so genuinely the day we interviewed you (not to mention your adorable daughter who made our appointment so fun too).  I know you will continue this spirit throughout the BIG day!  We all, Natalie, Greg, my husband and I, want you to genuinely feel you are true family members on this most important, fun day…so please be sure to dance and celebrate with us…OK?…We’ll all be smiling in the photos…J”

  • Emily @ Southern Weddings - Gorgeous! Love everything about this wedding, especially the bright bouquets against the black dresses!

  • Natalie - OMG… I’m in love with my own wedding all over again. The small pictures on the gallery site don’t do an ounce of justice to the pictures. Adi… you rock! Thank you so much for capturing all the important moments of our incredible day. & thank you for the sweet comment about the ceremony picture, that means a lot to me. Forgetting to put my veil down & not having my bouquet or my vows made for some unforgettable moments LOL. My cheeks are hurting now from smiling and from pure joy over our pictures. N.E.P. is wonderful!
