Bailey + Andy Wedding | Queen Mary, Long Beach

Another epic wedding with Wai Reyes photography! Bailey and Andy live in New York; Bailey a ballerina and Andy a musician for the U.S. marines. They wanted to have a destination wedding…something vintage. What better venue than the Queen Mary?! I adore this couple and this wedding so much!

Oh, and by the way, their wedding was on 12/29/12! Definitely a fantastic way to end 2012.

Her dress, her cape that was hand made by her aunt, her jewelry…she was breathtaking. kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_02 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_03 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_04 These two are so beautiful together. Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but so sweet and caring on the inside. I am so lucky to always work with incredible people. kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_11 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_10 It had rained earlier that morning and was quite chilly and gloomy. However, when it was time for the first look, the sun peeked through the clouds and cast such a beautiful golden light on the wedding day! kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_09 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_08 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_07 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_06 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_05 The talented Halleigh of Moment Privé put together this beautiful wedding.kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_18 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_17 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_16 kkcs_bailey_andy_queen_mary_wedding_15 Golden light…I’m telling ya.

Lori + Todd | Wedding {Palos Verdes}

Ok, so I’m extremely behind on my blogging duties. It’s already the end of the year and I’m just blogging about my summer weddings. EEK!!

Let’s get started straight away with a South Bay wedding at a beautiful church with a fantastic reception location to match! I want to say “Thank you” to Garrett Davis for having me second shoot this wedding! I had an amazing time working with Garrett and the beautiful bride and handsome groom.

The beautiful Catholic ceremony took place at St. Lawrence Martyr Catholic Church. At the church Todd received a gorgeous Seiko watch from his new in-laws. The watch was made special because they had his wedding date engraved on it. I also loved how Todd rocked his crocodile skin boots that matched his suit perfectly! Such great style!

The wedding colors were so vibrant and matched the season perfectly. What color combination would scream wedding other than turquoise and bright yellow and orange? Lori did such a fantastic job planning the wedding.La Venta Inn in Palos Verde Estates was the only place Lori and Todd would consider having their wedding reception because the establishment was once owned by Lori’s grandparents. You heard right! Lori grew up running around the grounds of La Venta Inn. It was and still remains a special place in her heart.
Lori and Todd have went through many trials and health problems. I’m just so ecstatic that they are now healthy and have the opportunity to spend the rest of their lives together. Congratulations!!
