{ crystal + marc | beverly hills courthouse wedding }

One of the most wonderful things about a wedding? It can be whatever you want it to be. It’s of course fun when weddings are big loud occasions, full of extended family & friends, bustling cocktail hours, boisterous receptions, packed dance floors.

But I’ve found that this here? This type of wedding speaks just as loudly as it’s bigger counterparts. It is filled with just as much joy. It resonates with just as much emotion. It shouts just as proudly from the rooftops that today, today we celebrate our love.

Crystal and Marc were married in an intimate courthouse ceremony, with just close family in attendance. I’ve known Crystal for a couple years now, and it was a true honor to be able to be there to capture these sweet moments & witness the joy and immediate connection between their two families. Afterwards, we stepped across the street to do some portraits on a sunny strip of park that lines Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills. I loved the whole relaxed and intimate feel of the day and am so so happy for this amazing couple!

As Crystal said herself, this is my ideal wedding. And that’s undoubtedly the best kind of wedding to have :)

I love that Crystal & Marc’s grandmothers were BFFs by the end of the afternoon! :)

Isn’t Crystal gorgeous? I always thought she looked like Scarlett Johansson :) {her hair and make-up were done by the wonderful Susie Chhuor!}
