Lulu & Gavin’s vision for their wedding day was one of romance and soft beauty; Alexandra Kolendrianos and Mindy Rice brought their vision to life. It was a creative dream to escape briefly to another iconic location, Dos Pueblos Ranch, and capture a beautiful private photo shoot with Elizabeth Messina.
Looking back on Laura & Jon’s wedding, the grace and elegance of the entire evening was beautiful. With the sharing of their personal vows and the exchange of communion, and followed by an evening celebration with family and close friends; you would have never known that the whole day was almost altered by the rain.
Amanda & Will’s wedding was held at a private estate in Shady Canyon where Tuscany met Old California charm. Featuring succulents, hay bales, olive oil, and wine from the family vineyard; their wedding was rich in flavor and vivid details.
One of my favorite things to see is when something modern and glamorous is captured on a classic medium like 16mm film. The combination of all those elements makes for a beautiful presentation. It’s always so much fun to see what film can bring to any event; be it a formal black tie soiree, tropical celebration, or natural mountaintop affair. Film captures a distinct feeling that often eludes the naked eye; Erin and Scott had just such an event. Their wedding had a relaxed glamour that complimented the beautiful setting of the Montage Laguna Beach perfectly. The groomsmen’s causal attire and flowing bridesmaid’s gowns, along with just a touch of glamour in the bride’s jewelry made it all come together so well. I couldn’t help but to tie it all together with a track by the french duo Air.
Petra and Josh, who both live in New York, had a classic Southern California wedding at the beautiful Adamson House in Malibu. Situated right on the coast, the Adamson House was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and reception. I was such a fan of the eclectic and rustic elements used throughout their decor, they were so much fun on film. One of my favorite moments to capture was Petra as she sat on a couch outside with her mother, sister, and grandmother; all four generations were filmed enjoying the amazing California weather. Petra & Josh were in love with our 16mm wedding films and knew right away that film was the perfect fit to capture their seaside wedding because it offered just the right amount of vintage flare.
Chelsea and Eric treated family and friends to an island getaway and invited their guests to the Ganesvoort Turks and Caicos for a wedding weekend filled with amazing food, drinks, and laughs. It was a perfectly planned weekend, filled to the brim with the most wonderful activities. The bride and groom sailed the turquoise waters with their guests and enjoyed a tasty lunch of the island’s most popular fare at the local Conch Shack. The groom and his friends enjoyed a golf tournament while the ladies were pampered at the spa and took a Core Fusion class with his bride.
An amazing rehearsal dinner was set for the couple on the powdery white beaches of the Ganesvoort in which the guests arrived barefoot and ready to celebrate with the happy couple. Chelsea and Eric said, “I do” amongst rain drops and gentle winds, surrounded by their cherished family and friends. The Turks and Caicos proved a perfect location for Chelsea and Eric’s wedding and 16mm film was the perfect medium to capture the beautiful couple and guests enjoying every moment.
Across the pond in the rolling countryside of Hampshire, England, we met up with an amazing couple, Alicia and Jun. We had the pleasure of spending a couple of days with them enjoying English tea, taking a scenic barge trip to the local pub, and capturing their breathtaking wedding ceremony in the gardens of the Four Seasons, Hampshire, a former estate of Henry VIII. The weekend was perfect and their super 8 film offers just a small taste of the beautiful anthology that we’re creating for them.
Jacqui and Amir had a glamourous wedding filled with beautiful traditions and intimate moments; like the washing of eachother’s hands and the sweet symbol of sharing honey. It was an amazing day and we were thrilled to share with them in the joy of their wedding.
Ashley & Christian’s wedding was a day full of little surprises and amazing details. From a baby zebra born just weeks prior, with al fresco dining on Persian rugs and beautiful couches, to even some brief summer showers and inquisitive horses; I was constantly seeing new details that inspired and left me feeling awestruck. I am so pleased to share their amazing day.
It’s not often that we get invited to capture a wedding that is created solely for a couple, who also serve as the only guests. This was a one of a kind experience with the bride and groom alone, under a beautiful canopy on a hillside. The only way I can describe their day is breathtaking and stunning.
