Wedding Photography: Mark & Paul

Mark and Paul met at a dance party in Palm Springs on New Year's Eve Y2K. Not nothing if the world would end that evening, the two danced the night away, and into a seventeen-year relationship. With gay marriage finally deemed legal, the two set out to plan their dream wedding: an intimate backyard soiree, with gorgeous glam details. The wedding took place at the home of their family friend in North Hills, California.  Blue Door Creative used black, white, and gold to create the sophisticated look. Mixed with bright and masculine florals, the look was backyard glam all the way.  The ceremony included personal vows, and touched on what a meaningful day it was that they could legally be married and celebrate their love. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. The reception featured a delicious pasta buffet, a bevy of hilarious toasts, a GIF photo booth, and some rockin' dancing. Paul, a former professional dancer, and Mark choreographed their first dance to the amusement and enjoyment of their guest. Everyone danced the night away as they ate mini pie shooters for dessert.

Engagement Photography: Ashley & Byron

Ashley and Byron's rustic engagement session took place in a private pasture in Claremont, California. Big animal lovers, the couple wanted to featured their white Arabian horse Lace, along with their sweet pup. There's nothing more we love than a beautiful nature location, and animals willing to work it in front of the camera.

Wedding Photography: Fran & Mike

Fran and Mike had a beautiful 1920s, vintage inspired ceremony at Callaway Vinyard and Winery.  The reception took place in the incredible barrel room and the decorations made you feel like Gatsby would walk around the corner at any minute.  They incorporated a unique wine blending during their ceremony to represent the blending of their two lives, that created a wine for them to save and drink on their anniversary.  Congratulations Fran and Mike!
