These portraits were taken at the beautiful Greystone Mansion. I didn’t realize just how close this amazing location is to the bustle of the city, just a few minutes away and seriously the loveliest place for portraits. It’s like someone air-lifted a pretty European chateau and dropped it perfectly in Beverly Hills :) I could shoot here everyday and I’d be happy girl!

Sheri’s ethereal dress fit the gardens perfectly and I loved wandering around with them that afternoon!

{ Jasmin + Huy | Greystone Mansion Wedding }

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Jasmin & Huy booked me for their July wedding through email, and though we hadn’t met at the time, I had an inkling that they would be amazing to work with. My Jasmin-and-Huy-must-be-awesome theory was supported by the fact that:

(a) they live in Portland, one of my favorite hip/lovely/artsy cities,
(b) they were getting married at the historic Greystone Mansion, &
(c) we were hooked up by planner extraordinaire Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings.

When we finally did meet over coffee on one of their visits to LA, I was so excited to see my theory proven wildly true – they were all kinds of warm, laidback & fun and their wedding plans, which they shared with me excitedly, sounded phenomenal.

And how perfect it all was! The day was intimate and filled to the brim with love – shared between Jasmin & Huy, and between all the guests there celebrating… an intermingling, blending of families, hugs-all-around type of love. The wedding had a simple vintage French theme that fit in perfectly with the venue, with bright summery accents of color. Love that the bridesmaids all wore different dresses & shoes.. added so much brightness to every photo! And while we’re on the topic of dresses, is Jasmin’s not the most wonderful whimsical beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped completely to the floor when I waltzed in that morning and saw it hanging all flowy & ethereal-like by the window.

But on with the photos – enjoy this peek into their day!

I generally take an inordinate number of shoe shots, but I may have gone especially overboard in this case… so dreamy!

I always love first looks, and this one was one of the most sweet & tender ones I’ve witnessed…

I love this moment.. before Jasmin had been handed her bouquet we snapped just a few and on cue, they all held hands. So sweet!

After wedding party portraits, Jasmin waited in the shade for the ceremony to begin & I couldn’t resist snapping a few (bajillion) shots… love the pastel tones in these!

A quick hairstyle change {complete with the perfect pink rose} before the reception…

And the details! Lush & elegant arrangements, gold vases, a dainty cake topper…

Jasmin & Huy’s perfectly choreographed first dance was amazing! They spun & trotted all the way around the fountain…

And if that wasn’t enough, Huy’s nephew followed it up with a fantastic rendition of Train’s “Hey Soul Sister”. He knew ALL THE WORDS!
