Blush pinks, touches of gold, flowery archways, charming details – this day was seriously pretty in so many ways! Sherry & Tim were married at the Westlake Village Inn and it was the perfect spot for their whimsical & romantic affair. Be sure to scroll down for the escort card table – seriously one of the most gorgeous displays {of not just escort cards, of anything!!} I’ve ever seen! Sherry has amazing style and coupled with the coordination & design magic of Jennifer Yamauchi, not a detail was left overlooked.

It was such an honor to be there to capture this beautiful day!

There is something about the getting ready photos that makes them some of my favorites from the day. The excitement, the anticipation of course – but I also love that it’s my first glimpse into the rest of the day, a happy hint at what the next 8 or 9 hours may bring. Upon stepping into Jenny’s room, I was greeted firstly by her ethereal dress hanging softly in the corner, her fantastic shoes glittering by the bed. By the prettiest light (can all hotel rooms be this suite at The Standard??) By bridesmaids laughing & practicing a dance number to come during the reception, or helping with some last minute plans. And of course by a sweet and radiant bride, who hugged me with the biggest brightest smile, who was head over heels to jump into the rest of the day.

And just as this initial peek suggested, the rest of this wedding unfolded into moments that were just as perfect – a tearful first look, THE cutest doggy ringbearer (seriously please take a look at that guy, it will make your entire week), some of the most eloquent and touching toasts I’ve heard, and dancing under golden lanterns and city lights. Cafe Pinot, as always, was the perfect backdrop for their day – I seriously never get tired of shooting there! – and this whole wedding was just a dream to photograph…

A wedding on a calm Thursday during the week. With 15 of the bride and groom’s closest family and friends, along with their two beautiful children. A small quiet garden tucked in the corner of LA’s prettiest nature. Colorful arrangements of blooms DIY-ed by the bride. A ceremony officiated by a friend. Refreshments of lemonade, champagne, and delicious little sandwiches.

I so so loved photographing this wedding. Because it is not about the fanciness and frills – because all kinds of weddings are beautiful, when it is about the love :)
