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.

The Neighborhood Church/Aquarium of the Pacific Wedding by Weintraub Photography

We selected this couple as the first of this blog series as this is the same location we got married at.  We were so excited to photograph this wedding at the Neighborhood Church as that is where it all started for us. I’ll never forget the day that my husband, Jim came home after photographing a wedding there and told me that he found the place where we would some day get married. He was so excited!  That day came shortly thereafter and the rest is history. We are approaching our 29th wedding anniversary and still going strong. So anytime we get the privilege to photograph this beautiful location, it brings back fond memories. This wonderful couple, Kyle and Chelsea, had the most perfect day. It was a beautiful from the moment it started at the Neighborhood Church to Averil Park where we improvised some of the same shots Kyle’s parents had in their wedding album over 20 years ago. Then it was off to the Aquarium of the Pacific for a night of music, magic and wedding bliss!
