Park Plaza Los Angeles Wedding: Renee + Steven

I’m so excited to share Renee and Steven’s wedding day images with you taken by the talented Los Angeles Photographer Rob Greer!

I started planning Renee & Steven’s Park Plaza wedding about 11 months out and enjoyed every planning second…and I must admit I miss my meetings and emails with Renee, amazing bride and all around amazing person!!.

All along Renee knew she wanted to have an elegant wedding with a color palette of champagne, black, cream and touches of gold.   She also wanted to showcase personal touches that represented her and Steven, which were their love for photographs a the ‘The Notebook’.     Their wedding day reflected the vision perfectly.

Renee and Steven’s wedding was the first time I had the pleasure of working with the AMAZING Los Angeles Photographer Rob Greer.   Rob is a genius at what he does, and it was  joy to see him work to get those perfect shots for Renee and Steven..including literally laying on the floor on his back!!  Enjoy….

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this antique brooch bouquet Lotus and Lily Floral & Event Design by Jackie Combs made.  LOVE.

Gorgeous bride!  Did I mention Renee used to be a model?!  She now owns a successful modeling agency, Off The Ricter Models!  Flawless hair and make-up done by Yana of Yana Beauty Studio.

Handsome Steven moments before he sees Renee for their First Look

The entrance to the aisle had chairs adorned with a picture of Renee and Steven when their were kids.  Renee was able to find a picture of her dressed up as a bride, so perfect!

Gorgeous gowns that have pockets, yes please!

Each table number had a picture of the bride and groom taken at the age of the table number!

‘The Notebook’ quotes written on the wedding cake

Again, I’m in LOVE with this brooch bouquet.  Gorgeous.

Trump Golf Club & Wayfarers Chapel Wedding: Allison + Matt

The post of this beautiful couple and their wedding is looong over due!  When I say over due that’s an understatement, since Allison and Matt’s chic Winter wedding at Trump National Golf Club, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them at THREE of their friends weddings…most recently last month in which I was SO excited to see they were expecting their first child!  So yes, long over due, but so worth the wait.

Allison and Matt I LOVED  planning your wedding, you two are such a sweet couple.  Congratulations on expecting your little one!  Allison just like you were a beautiful glowing bride, you are a beautiful glowing mommy to be.  Loved seeing you both last month!
