Night wedding by Elegant Catering and Banquets by South End

Here’s a “sneak peak” of a wedding we did this past weekend with really fun couple.  The bride’s dream was to look like a Disney princess for her groom so she even purposely lost her shoe during the recessional so her prince could put it back on.  They had a blast and so did we!

Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific Wedding

50 Shades of Love is a series of blog posts sharing the love, diversity and magic of today’s weddings captured through the eyes of our camera. This week we are featuring the Long Beach Aquarium.  This lovely couple celebrated a family wedding with their 3 children at the beautiful Aquarium of the Pacific. It was a dream come true after delivering their 3rd child just several weeks prior.  She looked amazing!

The location is a public aquarium by day and transforms into your own underwater wonderland at night.   The ceremony is held in front of a spectacular, 3 story high Blue Cavern aquarium!  Its truly a magical place to have a wedding if you love the ocean and marine life.  Enjoy!

This week I decided to feature a baptismal at the Wayfarers Chapel for a couple whose wedding we photographed a few years ago.  It’s always such a delight to see our clients start a family and have the opportunity to be a part of those milestones in their children’s lives.  This adorable blue eyed bumpkin is truly a blessing and a gift of joy.  Jim and I had so much fun photographing these moments!

This week’s wedding features a wedding on the beach in Redondo Beach. Our couple flew in from Elmhurst, Illinois for an intimate beach wedding followed by a romantic dinner for two.  We had so much fun with them as they cried with laughter celebrating their love.  It was very spontaneous as they walked on the beach, picked their spot and got married. I love the picture of the sunbathers who witnessed the whole event and cheered them on.  Enjoy!

This week’s wedding features a wedding at dusk at the Wayfarers Chapel. Our couple from Oklahoma planned an intimate destination wedding where guests could enjoy the stunning views of the California coastline and dance the night away at the Doubletree Hilton in San Pedro conveniently located minutes from the chapel. These two locations pair extremely well for local and destination weddings.

This week’s wedding features the newly remodeled St. John Fisher Catholic Church in Palos Verdes and the beautiful Palos Verdes Golf Club.  I tried to select photos that captured how much fun our bride and groom, Stephanie and Trevor, had at their wedding.  It seemed like they laughed all day!  It’s such a privilege to be the ones who get to capture so much joy and memories that will last a lifetime!

Another beautiful wedding at one of our favorite places, The Neighborhood Church in Palos Verdes.  This place is magical…truly a photographers playground!  This unique location has an incredible story behind it too. Here’s a brief summary.

J. J. Haggarty built this mansion in 1927 as his summer residence. This wealthy merchant owned stores and elaborate homes in Los Angeles and New York. His Italian architect designed it in the fashion of villas along the Mediterranean. When the Haggarty business fell upon hard times, the mansion passed through several owners and was finally bought by Harry Wheeler, a mid-west financier who purchased the estate to house his art collection. When he died, his family wanted neither the estate nor his collection and the villa became something of a white elephant on the real estate market in 1949. The asking price then was $250,000 and subsequently was reduced again and again. Executors of the Wheeler estate accepted a bid from the congregation for $60,000 and the Church had a home

I chose to share this wedding in Playa del Carmen, Cancun, as it features the destination wedding of our very good friends and newlyweds Greg and Elisa.  Nothing could’ve prepared us for this very unique wedding we did on April 5, 2014 this year.  We started out with a first glance on the bridge at the beautiful grounds of the Riu Yucatan where we were staying. We then headed for a very windy beach for a late afternoon of more photos capturing some gorgeous ocean backgrounds.  Then it was off to Alux Restaurant and Lounge for an evening ceremony and intimate reception.  Alux Restaurant and Lounge literally emerges within the depths of a naturally formed cavern aka cave formed thousands of years ago.  It was a challenge because it was dark, hot and very low lighting and because there were crevices everywhere and uneven ceilings, our flash was bouncing all over the place.  Nonetheless, once we got accustomed to what we were dealing with we got some beautiful pictures.  We’re so grateful to have had this opportunity and hope to do more destination weddings in the future. Enjoy!

The Wayfarers Chapel is great for a smaller wedding such as this one where two families joined together as one.  I love the way the couple had their children participate in the sand ceremony.  The “Trumps Room” at Trump National Golf Club was the perfect intimate setting for the reception.  The room is enamored with gold embellishments and attention to detail.  An elegant atmosphere and excellent food is sure to leave an impression with your guests.  We captured a stunning California sunset on the bluff at dusk.  Who could ask for a better night!

It was the perfect sunset at The Wayfarers Chapel for Charlotte and Murat couple. The reception was held at a private facility in Venice where guests could mingle in an intimate setting. We couldn’t have asked for a better night.
