Wayfarers Chapel Wedding Photography

Many of our couples ask us what is a “Sneak Peak” or sometimes referred to as a “First Glance”.  This is an opportunity to capture one of the most important key moments of the wedding day when the bride and groom see each other for the first time.  More and more couples are deciding to incorporate this intimate moment before the wedding as it will probably be the only time they will have some one on one time together

The bride has decided that she does not want the groom to turn around and see her so she grabs his hand and we capture the surprise look on his face!

She kisses his hand and in that moment, everything is perfect.  They are now ready to get married.

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!

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.
