The Villa Wedding ~ Dorothy and Paul

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

I was recently asked by a groom, in jest (I think) if he was my “favorite.” Like a child, I would NEVER pick a favorite, but I will absolutely say that Dorothy and Paul are ONE of my favorites (phew). It is one of the most flattering things in the world to be totally trusted with one of the most important days in someones life-and they trusted us completely. Their requests were minimal, they gave us free reign over everything, trusted our advice…event went out of their way to try and get us one of the full Chinese banquets they were serving…and we got cookies, too! Paul’s mom makes some of the best cookies I have ever had; I could’ve made an entire meal out of just her chocolate chip ones alone. I told them the day of the wedding that I decided that they had to be friends with us. LOL! :-) A million thank yous to you both for having us at your wedding, and entrusting your gorgeous wedding to us.

Ceremony and Reception: The Villa

I love these two photos from their first look!

I have a warm spot in my heart for any bride that goes barefoot:

Marina Del Rey Wedding

A recent comment from a bride reminded me that once again, we fell a bit behind on our blogging (but, check out and LIKE our Facebook page for the most recent events, weddings, and portraits) so I wanted to start up again with one of my favorite weddings of the year so far. For various reasons related to their professions, I do have to leave out the details about this wedding at their request, but the bride was nice enough to allow us to share some of our favorite images from the day:
