I’ve been going through images lately and reliving many fun moments from this wedding season. When I do, it’s always fun to find images of me working. Sometimes my assistant catches me and sometimes I catch myself. I love this large mirror in one of the ballrooms at the Monterey Plaza Hotel. The light and the view that flood this room during the day are spectacular. Congratulations Thayne & Sarah!

I love Cocoanut Grove weddings! It’s a 5 minute commute from my studio (unless it’s a holiday weekend!) and couples who get married there seem to be fun loving and family oriented like Travis & Kim pictured below.

The glass ceiling above is retractable so there is always fresh air in the sunroom. It’s also nice to see the stars twinkling at night.

I was recently in the Sierras for a bridal show at Paradise Springs, a wedding venue near Oakhurst, CA.  I took my assistant Elisabeth with me and we teamed up with makeup artist Mickie with M by Mickie, for a portrait session in Yosemite National Park. What a perfect day!

They really tied the knot! I’ve never had a couple do this before.

What a personality!

Their intimate ceremony and reception were held at Lulu Carpenter’s cafe in downtown Santa Cruz, CA. Being New York natives, the newlyweds insisted on a Jamaican style wedding feast from Spicy Roy’s in San Jose.  Lezlie Johnson created the bouquets and centerpieces. The Buttery provided the wedding cake. Hair & makeup by Lorene Stewart.

Wedding at the Wind & Sea Estate in Big Sur.

What could be more romantic than crossing the pond, renting a convertible Mustang and eloping in Big Sur with your closest friends and family? I love the sense of adventure couples who elope seem to possess. Neil & Kirsty did just that when they planned their destination wedding in Big Sur.

It’s always great working with Zee with Lyssabeth’s Wedding Officiants.

A kilt is always a welcome sight at a wedding!

Besties!!
