Beatriz + David

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

It was a gorgeous day filled with lavish details, incredibly touching moments, and tons of fun for their guests. The love that Beatriz and David share with each other and with their families was so evident, I feel so blessed to have been a part of their big day. A big thank you goes out to Katie of Bella Destinee and her team for coordinating such an incredibly gorgeous event and another huge thank you goes out to Ming and my dear husband Jeff for shooting with me that day!

We started off at the Delfina Sheraton in Santa Monica where I fell in love with Beatriz’s fuschia Manolo Blahnik’s.

How stunning are Beatriz and David’s rings? Be still my heart….

Loved Beatriz’s gorgeous Amsale gown and how it coordinated perfectly with her Manolo’s!

Feminine and whimsical and light as air with all those soft layers.

The lace on her drop veil was to die for!

Kerim Albanes of My Wedding Blooms did such an amazing job with the florals and reception decor!

Beatriz’s twin sister helping with the finishing touches.

The guys’ getting ready as captured by Ming. Awesome.

When the girls were all dolled up we headed downstairs for some portraits.

Love the light and the texture of the background in this next shot!

Just a reminder to everyone out there. Don’t kiss the bride and mess up her makeup on her wedding day!

Then we set off to St. Martin of Tours Church for the ceremony.

David walking his Mother and Sister down the aisle. Love the look between David and his Mother! How sweet is that?

I think I am in love with these two little boys! They’re so cute and so sweet and so stylin’!

David holding it together as he sees his bride for the first time.

Beatriz and her Father walking down the aisle to meet David.

The new Mr. and Mrs! I absolutely love capturing the bride and groom as they make their way back up the aisle!

Boys will be boys. Another hilarious shot captured by Ming

As a surprise for his new wife, David rented a 1960’s Rolls Royce for them to ride around town in for portraits and to their reception!

Then we were off to take portraits!

It’s all in the details.

Luna Party Rentals did an amazing job with the draping and decor! I didn’t even recognize the ballroom once they finished doing what they do best!

In leiu of favors, the couple made a generous donation to the Cancer Research Foundation UK.

David and Beatriz’s sweetheart table.

Beatriz and David danced a sweet little choreographed number for their first dance.

A tender moment as they listened to toasts made in their honor.

They had tradional Korean fan and drum dancers to entertain their guests and even partook in the Korean Pye-Bek ceremony.

Someone is thrilled to have caught the bouquet! I have to admit, that this sequence of shots made me smile!

They had the most amazing band to play at their wedding as well. Seriously, the best band ever!

And they lived happily ever after!
