A luxury Athenaeum Wedding | Pasadena, California
This luxury Athenaeum, Pasadena soiree embodies everything a fairytale wedding should be, including an incredibly romantic surprise from the groom to his bride.
Just after the ceremony, surrounded by congratulatory cheers and swirling rose petals, emotions on high, is when the bride first glanced the beautifully adorned horse and carriage waiting to take them away! A magical moment she will never forget.
When looking for the perfect venue Rick and Flora knew they wanted a place with beautiful architecture and privacy. A place where they could get ready before the ceremony and also relax in to the night with their guests. They found exactly what they were looking for at The Athenaeum, a private social club on the California Institute of Technology campus. This gorgeous venue had us from the moment we walked in to the pre planning meeting. As visual artists we’re always looking for settings that will enhance the story but we also consider logistics. Keeping the couple’s experience fun carefree is a priority for us, and this amazing location has it all.
What a night! Rick and Flora’s love for each other was so contagious, that not a person in attendance could deny the joy and happiness that filled the room! Everyone was up and about, dancing the night away!

Romantic Summer Wedding | Saddle Peak Lodge
A romantic summer wedding story with soft gold accents and a beautiful wedding cake that shimmered in the sunlight! An overall soft feminine style that looked especially beautiful in contrast to the authentic rustic setting of Saddle Peak Lodge.
Ryan and Julia adore being in nature. When they saw the lodge they fell in love with the rustic charm and breathtaking mountain views. Their decision was made. Equally important to them was creating an event that was elegantly simple, they wanted to look back on their wedding day memories as fun and carefree. With Shannon from Affairs of The Heart to guide them, this is just how the day unfolded. So lovely.
Standing before a frame worthy view of the Santa Monica Mountains, the couple exchanged their wedding vows.

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.

Follow a winding road through forest, apple orchards and small town generosity. Here’s where you’ll find Serendipity Gardens.
Marnee and Dillon’s wedding tells a charming story of the bride’s Scotch-Irish heritage and the couple’s shared love of homemade pie, dinosaurs, and Star Wars!
Marnee and Dillon’s good friend brought his vintage Pontiac, and we knew we wanted to include it in the story. The charming farms in the area made the classic car look right at home in its era. An apple orchard on the edge of a pine forest was the perfect backdrop for the couple’s first look. Marnee and Dillon, said “I Do” on a deck. perched on a hillside with breathtaking views of the valley. The cocktail hour was outdoors, shimmering chandeliers hung from the tree limbs above. Dinner and dancing was under a tent on top of the hill with beautiful views.
The highlight of the evening was a surprise performance by the couple for their guests – a well planned lightsaber duel that Marnee and Dillon pulled off with perfection! An authentic battle of force that was impressive and so much fun to watch! The skit ends with non-other than Darth Vader’s himself, threatening the couple. Marnee and Dillon drop their weapons and reach out for one another as the power of love conquers Darth and he falls to the ground. The crowd went absolutely wild with cheer and applause.
Between dancing guests gathered around the open fire pit enjoying s’mores. The celebration ended with a joyful, sparkler send-off. It was definitely a night to remember!
Hats off to the creative team that helped to bring the couple’s vision to life:
