Vintage Hollywood Style Wedding | The Carondelet House
A high-on-style vintage, Hollywood inspired wedding. Glamorous and all around gorgeous! The bride’s beauty style by Melissa & Krystal and designer Hartnell gown are perfection! It’s tricky to pull off the style of this classic era with authenticity but this glamorous event was flawless. The white cane chairs with the striking red wool aisle runner with a classic vintage rose motif was lovely. Its easy to imagine the ambience of The Carondelet House as a chic underground speak easy, guests wined and dined at the most exclusive supper club in town.
Here’s to the A-list talent that created the magic behind the scenes:

Ebell Long Beach Wedding | Megan & Jin
An elegant and fun wedding at the gorgeous Ebell of Long Beach. The couple included their sweet pup as the ring boy.
“The minute I saw this Ebell of Long Beach wedding I was in love. I keep going back to that exquisite three quarter sleeve length gown complete with a sweetheart neckline. Silver Charm Events planned a timeless celebration full of elegance and the prettiest details. The floral design by Inessa Nichols Design, is just the dreamiest. With pops of color throughout there are some serious stare worthy blooms in this wedding.” – Reverie Gallery

Black Tie Wedding Long Beach Cal
The Ebell of Long Beach is an extraordinary venue and the perfect setting for celebrating Tim and Courtney’s love story.
The open archways and natural daylight spaces are a photographers dream.
The bride’s dress by Pronovias is a personal favorite. The beauty of the lace over the blush colored, luxurious silk slip had me at first sight.
Before the ceremony the couple met in the natural light foyer to share a first look and to greet their sweet pup, Winston.
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. The floral arbor designed by Bottles and Blooms looked stunning above the mosaic tile floors and the lush greenery set along the aisle.
The couple chose long dark trestle tables for their reception with pale blue and gold accents. Soft hued, luscious blooms and garland, gold sequin runners and hundreds of twinkling candles were displayed down the center of the tables. The head table where the bride and groom dined with the wedding party was framed on either end by tall green trees adorned with hanging baubles of light. The look was magical against the dark wood walls and high vaulted ceiling.
The father of the bride, maid of honor, and best man gave speeches after dinner. Then Courtney and Tim cut the cake before dancing began.

First Congregational Church Los Angeles Wedding & Vow Renewal
Michiko and Jean were college students when they fell in love and married in a civil ceremony. They made a promise to one another that one day, when they could afford it, they would have a wedding with their families and all of the trimmings. On their tenth wedding anniversary they fulfilled that promise and this beautifully planned wedding became a reality.
The morning began at Mr. C’s Hotel in Beverly Hills with the preparations and first-look. The couple enjoyed a ride to the church in a vintage limousine. The ceremony was held at the historic First Congregational Church of LA an architectural wonder, modeled after the great cathedrals of France and England. After the ceremony guests were treated to an elegant soiree at the Carondelet House, originally built as a private residence in 1928. During the cocktail hour the couple treated their guests to an impressive display of their favorite fine cheeses and caviar served with authentic french baguette. Fine wine was served during the cocktail hour and bottles were also gifted as favors. The rustic dining room tables were set with vintage lace runners and opulent silver chargers. Sprigs of rosemary and blush pink and cream florals added lushness to the design. An elegant dinner was served and champagne toasts were given. Then the live music began and everyone was out of their seats! On the patio a barista took orders for strong coffee drinks as fresh Cuban cigars were being rolled. And if things couldn’t get any better, later in the evening, the bride changed in to a shorter dress and the couple danced a jaw-dropping, sure footed, salsa number that had the crowd cheering!
Congratulations, Michiko and Jean! Well done! A very special event worth the wait!

A Gorgeous Jewish Wedding Ceremony
A celebration so full with love and passionate people. It was also the groom’s 30th birthday!
As guests arrived at The Carondelet House they were greeted at the door with a glass of champagne. During this time a private, family ceremony was taking place upstairs with the traditional Jewish Ketubah signing, the bride and groom’s intimate marriage contract. A beautiful moment of reverence. We observed many small gestures between the couple and their family that showed to us, their deep bonds and support for one another. All the while, the soft chatter of delighted guests wafted up the stairs adding an excited giddiness and anticipation to the mood in the room.
As the Ketubah ceremony was ending, guests took their seats for the larger ceremony. The couple chose not to have a bridal party of friends but instead asked their parents to walk with each of them down the aisle and to remain with them under the Huppah together. The mother’s and grandmother held a single rose as they walked down the aisle, in honor of a loved one. A close family friend led the ceremony. Included was the traditional blessings over wine, a sip taken by the bride and groom and ended with the glass breaking, Ali and Spencer took on the task together with one swift stomp in unison. The breaking glass, an emotional kiss and guests cheering was also an official signal to shout, “Mazel Tov!” and start partying! And a great party it was!
We had the best time photographing this truly happy and heartfelt story.
Thank you & congratulations, Ali & Spencer!
