Napa Valley is known around the world and the more I visit this remarkable place the more it hurts to have to leave. Jasmine & Gregory invited a close group of family and friends, from the other side of the globe, to come join them and celebrate their wedding in this beautiful place. Beaulieu Garden’s set the stage for this intimate wedding and reception and the event design was handled by Lisa Vorce.
San Ysidro Ranch has to be one of the most iconic and beautiful places to get married at in Santa Barbara and it’s always a thrill for us to shoot there. Sarah & Ian’s wedding was full of colors that reflected the season as well as their own personal style. The design was rich and vibrant and totaling fitting for this fall wedding.
London is a remarkable city and Dilyara & Marc chose to have their wedding in what is probably the most beautiful part of the city, Hyde Park. Set next to the Queen’s Garden, the Mandarin Oriental is perfectly located to take in the beauty of the park and the hustle and bustle of the town. It was a joy to be a part of this beautifully classic wedding and to watch these two families come together, in a melding of culture, to form new ties.
Alexandra & James held their wedding at the sprawling Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. Alexandra had a remarkable vision for her wedding, with elements of the French countryside coming in at every turn. Their wedding ceremony was held under a beautifully ornate tree with wooden pews for their guests, all the while a thunder storm loomed overhead. Luckily, there was no rain and the warm sunlight streamed through as they invited guests to dine and celebrate the evening away.
Sun, beach, waves, and just a little bit of rain, all made for a remarkable wedding celebration for Marina & Gregory. It was a beautiful destination wedding held at the Fairmont Mayakoba and we had a blast working with Fer Juaristi and Ed Peers who captured the photos – check out the feature on JuneBugWeddings.
Few places leave you speechless, like the Swiss Alps. Laura and Mark chose to host their wedding celebration in the beautiful town of Arosa, Switzerland. Arosa boasts 360 degree views of amazing snow-capped mountains, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. With a tremendous love for the outdoors and fun, Laura and Mark invited their close family and friends to enjoy a weekend of skiing and sledging; along with Swiss Fondu and an al fresco lunch on the slopes. Their wedding day was adorned with tradition; including a horse drawn sleigh, vintage carousel rides for their guests, and Swiss longhorns announcing the couple’s arrival for drinks reception. Their wedding celebration concluded with an evening of live music and dancing until the early morning.
Helen & Jason’s wedding was full of soft and romantic personal touches, culminating in their wedding ceremony and reception overlooking the Deep Water Bay in Hong Kong. It was such an honor to produce their wedding film at the stunning Hong Kong Country Club.
Sarah & Brad had the wonderful idea to welcome their guests and start off their wedding with a croquet themed dinner party. Close friends and family were greeted with drinks and a signature pair of shoes, along with private lessons on a proper game of croquet. It was an evening full of fun and laughs and was the perfect start to the weekend.
Set in what has to be one of the most idyllic Southern Californian locations, Kirsten & Tim’s Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse Wedding took place atop the rolling hills of Santa Ynez Valley wine country; their wedding was full of classic rustic, elements and personal touches like a six layer cheese cake. Santa Ynez has some of the most beautiful locations and I’m always so blessed to shoot in such beautiful scenery.
On a recent trip to Hong Kong, we met up with Charo & Shaaz, and had the opportunity to spend sometime time with them as they explored Hong Kong by land and sea; from the antique markets, to an abandoned fort, to the peak overlooking the city of Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor, and all this was followed by the breathtaking views of the Hong Kong skyline, as only can be seen from a boat. It was a remarkable adventure and I cannot wait to make it back to that amazing city.
