Photographing this elegant wedding at Maravilla Gardens outside of Los Angeles was an amazing experience. Laura had discovered my work on Style Me Pretty and decided that I would be the best wedding photographer for their wedding day because she wanted a natural candid style of wedding photography.
Laura & Ryan’s wedding at Maravilla Gardens was a beautiful and elegant affair, a mix of sophistication and relaxed fun.
I loved photographing the soft colors of the wedding, white and blush tones with a little bit of lavender; peonies, hydrangeas and pale pink roses;
an overall shabby chic theme, definitely more on the chic side.
I had a wonderful time with this couple, starting with their wedding engagement session in Santa Ynez (which I have yet to post…)!
One of my favorite details from the reception was their idea for guest favors. As shown below, instead of opting for traditional party favors,
they decided to make donations to charities that were meaningful to them in the name of their guests. Loved it!
Thank you to Laura & Ryan for sharing this magical day with me, and to all of the vendors who made this a gorgeous wedding to capture! Click here to view the extended post with additional photographs from this wedding.
