It was a perfect sunny summer day in Palos Verdes. On a cliff overlooking the sea, Christine & Michael exchanged wedding vows of love and hope, of always knowing the other was out there for them, of the joy of finally finding one another. The day had a wonderful relaxed feel and so perfectly reflected their personalities – with fragrant bouquets of lavender scattered throughout and lots of odes to the Beatles. It was also the first wedding I photographed with an all-vegan menu, which included pasta, tacos and burgers, all of which looked delicious!
A huge thank you to my dear friend Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings for introducing me to this amazing couple and perfectly coordinating this amazing day!

What makes for a day this perfect? How about a so-in-love couple, who has been together for an amazing 17 years? How about a lovely little ranch house adorned with the sweetest handcrafted vintage details? How about personal touches galore – Erin’s bouquet wrapped in the sleeve from her mother’s wedding dress, guests sipping on beer brewed by the groom and his friends, the ceremony officiated by a reverend who has known the family for 3 generations, a dessert bar made with contributions solely baked by family and friends. This wedding was the perfect picture of relaxed elegance and thoughtful details, but also so much FUN!! I loved how Erin and her dad danced down the aisle, followed by a high five with Brandon as he handed off the beautiful bride. The entire day was filled with feelings of warmth & love, and I can’t express how honored I was to be there to document it!
A special thank you goes out to Jennifer Yamauchi for orchestrating every last piece of it – always love working with her & her tirelessly amazing team!

Could you tell I was just a little obsessed with Silvia’s perfect flowy dress? I feel like college campuses always make such great backdrops for sessions (so many options in one place, not too crowded) and Cal Tech in Pasadena was no exception. I especially loved the dreamy staircase we found which complimented the romantic feel of it all perfectly! Can’t wait for their wedding this summer!
