Crop top wedding gown, a shave ice bar, a bouncy house- what else do you need to start a marriage? Whatever your answer, these two had it. Congratulations, Alex and Paulette. What a kickoff.
Hungarian traditions (egg in the trousers- what?!), family bonds, and a bazillion laughs.
The drizzling rain couldn't stop this celebration.

A million and two thanks to Heather of JMFoto for second shooting this one with me. Your vision astounds and angers me, simultaneously, and it was a joy to have you by my side.
Megan and Steve are actual aerospace engineers. Like, real life rocket scientists. So it was a no-brainer (get it? Cause they're geniuses.) to hold their wedding at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. Instead of the boring old table numbers, their guests were seated at tables named after one of their favorite books. On each table was a description of the book, and what it meant to them. Around the library, photos and books were displayed according to different chapters in their lives. Escort cards were library cards, of course. Notes of love typed on an antique typwriter. Every last detail was special and significant to them. Beyond the details, the most significant thing about their day was how many friends and family traveled from near and far to be with them. They were surrounded, enveloped by people who support and encourage them. It was an honor just to be a witness. Love you two.
An epic ceremony-stopping musical surprise. Rubber chickens. Inside jokes for vows. Party of the century.
What a kickoff to a lifetime with your best friend.
Venue: Loft on Pine
A post-Christmas dance party by the sea.
Congratulations Megan and Patrick- may your life together be as fun as your wedding day!
Thanks as always to my second set of eyes, Kym Vitar Photography
