Warm Winter Wedding

Palos Verdes, California
Cicely and Robert had a lovely intimate ceremony on the beach at the Portuguese Bend Beach Club on the last Saturday of December. The bride was simply radiant, and super sweet, too. The happy couple couldn't stop smiling all day.

Cicely and Robert said their vows in a heart made by rocks.

The First Kiss

And off they walk into the sunset...

Which of these two photos do you like better? Classic Photo

or Classic Photo with Grunge Overlay?

The newlyweds held their reception at Cicely's mom's house down the road from the ceremony.

And for those of you that think you need months to plan a wedding, this couple planned theirs in only 2 weeks!!!  I honestly don't know how they did it, that's a lot of work!

I love the little boy's face in this photo.

Four generations of women.

Congratulations Cicely & Robert! Wishing you much happiness!!!

A Perfect Match

Palos Verdes, California
Rob and Michelle were married on the anniversary of their first date, which fell on a weekday. The following Saturday they held their wedding reception at the beautiful Palos Verdes Country Club. I love all the red.

Every corner of the room had an interesting detail, including Michelle's parents' certificate of marriage from Vietnam.

The place cards gracefully adorned three sets of vases holding branches.

Michelle's signature purse, she has several in different colors.

After everyone was seated, the couple played a slideshow of photos from their wedding ceremony.

As a surprise to all the guests, Michelle and Rob changed into traditional Vietnamese wedding attire, also called Áo dài.

Some of Michelle's family traveled from overseas for their wedding and they were very excited to see the happy couple.

After greeting every table, the newlyweds changed back to their formal attire for their first dance.

Their guests loved the photo booth. Even the bride got in on the action making silly faces into the camera.

These two boys were so adorable!

All that dancing makes for hungry guests. No worries, there were two delicious cakes to satisfy every appetite.

Thank you again to the sweetest Michelle and Rob!
