Black Tie Wedding The Ebell Long Beach Cal


 Black Tie Wedding Long Beach Cal





Where classic meets modern whimsy. The style, sophisticated and elegant. 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 was a personal favorite. The beauty of the lace over the tulle and the appliqués to highlight the sheer effects of the illusion neckline and 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 precious pup, Winston.

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. The lush floral arbor designed by Bottles and Blooms looked stunning above the mosaic tile floors and greenery alongside the aisle. 

The couple chose long dark trestle tables for their reception –they channeled sophistication with pale blue and gold accents. Soft hued, luscious blooms, garland, gold sequin runners and hundreds of twinkling candles, were displayed down the tables center. 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.

Castle Green Wedding Pasadena Wedding Photographers

Castle Green Wedding

Pasadena California

It was such a pleasure for us to work with this couple, from our initial Skype interview, to meeting in person at the venue and then again, a week before the wedding for the bride’s makeup trial, and of course, throughout the wedding day itself.

Mina & Ryan live in Washington D.C. and planned their  Southern California wedding long distance. It was important to them to find a location with history and beautiful architecture, with the help of their wedding planner they found the perfect backdrop for their soiree. Listed on the registrar of historic landmarks, Castle Green is a stately manor that takes you back in time to an elegant era. Mina wore her late father’s watch on her wrist, a thoughtful and loving gesture. A successful trip to India resulted in finding the gorgeous sari’s that the bridal party is wearing. Combined with the elegant tuxedos, white roses and this amazing venue, the event was incredible and the love — contagious.

Congratulations, Mina & Ryan!
