Vineyard Wedding at Catalina View Gardens

It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding at Catalina View Gardens in Palos Verdes. With views of the vineyard and the Pacific Ocean to Catalina Island, it truly is a breathtaking venue. Located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is where you can find this absolutely amazing 94-acre property. Catalina View Gardens is a magnificent place to hold any special event.

Let’s start with Nicki and Matt’s first look in the garden. This intimate location under the trees was absolutely perfect for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time. Matt was speechless when Nicki snuck up behind him in her stunning all lace wedding gown. After catching their first look in action, we made our way to the ceremony overlooking the ocean. Following the lovely ceremony, we explored the property with the newlyweds. We could spend all day walking the garden pathways to the beautiful hillside vineyard, but it was time to celebrate!

Wedding Reception in the Garden

The Event Garden at Catalina View Gardens is a truly elegant location with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. The reception was decorated with harvest tables and lace runners. Let’s not forget the gorgeous rose centerpieces with mixtures of white, pink and purple. We were loving the rustic elegance of the decor. Nicki and Matt made their entrance and continued with traditions like their first dance, toasts, parent dances and of course the cake cutting. Also, a delicious spread of desserts that the guests just couldn’t resist.

The new Mr. and Mrs. danced the night away under the stars with their friends and family celebrating the best day ever. They even had a photo booth to add a little extra fun to this party. It sure was a night no one would forget. Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Engagement Shoot at Malaga Cove Library & Palos Verdes Beach

It was a beautiful day in Palos Verdes, California, especially for a wedding engagement shoot. We absolutely love shooting in Palos Verdes, but not as much as we loved capturing these special moments between Nicki and Matt. As you can see, they made it easy.

Let’s talk about the scenery because the photo opportunities are endless. Nicki and Matt walked the cobblestone walkways while staring into each other’s eyes, thinking about the big day to come. Discovering the gardens nearby and making their way to the Palos Verdes trails. Of course, making a pit stop at Malaga Cove Library and then finally wandering along the beach.

Visiting Palos Verdes Beach is the most ideal location for an engagement shoot. Walking along the water holding hands, discovering a private nook on a lifeguard tower and letting the sand get in your toes.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

The Historic Muckenthaler Mansion is located in Fullerton, California. With intimate gardens and exquisite Italian architecture, it sure is the perfect setting for your wedding day!

Let’s start out with Michelle and Dan’s first look. Michelle looked absolutely stunning in her billowing ballgown detailed with floral lace and a beaded belt. Not to mention, her accessories.. sparkling strappy heels and a gorgeous headpiece. Dan patiently awaiting his soon to be bride, closed his eyes and suddenly he felt a tap on his shoulder. As he tried to catch his breath, he twirled Michelle around to take a look. This is a moment they will never forget.

Intimate Garden Ceremony at Muckenthaler Mansion

The moment everyone had been waiting for had arrived, but first a tear-jerking first look between Michelle and her dad. He squeezed his little girl tight preparing to walk her down the aisle. They both couldn’t stop smiling and neither could the guests. Surrounded by swaying palm trees in the Italian Garden, the lovely couple recited their vows and finally became husband and wife! Family and friends rise for cheers and blow bubbles for their exit making for a great photo op.

As guests made their way to cocktail hour, Michelle and Dan head to the stone pathways to take a stroll together. Muckenthaler Mansion has so many beautiful surroundings and backdrops for memorable photos. However, it was time to celebrate the reception on the Adella Lawn.
