Now forgive me if I gush a little bit but this wedding was uniquely special to me. You see, T and J got married at the Palm Event Center (at Mitchel Katz Winery). Almost three years ago, I got married at the exact same location. I just love it. It's a beautiful location to get married and a photographers dream with its massive palm trees lining the entrance and its grand scale. I've wanted to shoot a wedding there ever since my wedding. A few weeks ago, that dream came true. OK, Gush Over. =)
The ceremony was held inside "The Barrel Room" which is essentially a wine cellar lined with oak barrels lit by beautiful chandeliers and dozens of candles. Very elegant and very romantic. Beautiful. Brought back so many great memories of my own wedding. I felt very fortunate to be able to share their day with them and hopefully make it even more special by capturing all the beautiful moments they shared throughout the day.
The reception had a decidedly vintage feel with lots of blacks and dark reds. The tables were named for old movie and TV stars with names like Grace Kelly, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and more. They also had something you don't always see at weddings...live music! I really dig that.
Below are some highlights and favorites from the day. Feel free to check out some of their engagement photos which were also used for a custom photo guest book I made for them. If you were at the wedding, you probably signed it! =)
