        This has been one of my favorite weddings! A garden wedding you guys. It was sunny but so freaking beautiful. Birds chirped during the ceremony. I fell in love with Erica’s wedding dress.

        Wedding Details

        I spent most of my creative energy photographing the bride because I was second-shooting and was able to focus on whatever I wanted (SO MUCH FREEDOM TO PLAY and learn). After this wedding, I began implementing what I practiced onto my own brides. Erica wore her mama’s wedding dress. Her mom’s mom wore the dress too! I love bride portraits, you gotta know that. These felt extra special because of the meaning of the dress.

        I second shot this beautiful wedding for my friend Jenny Collen.

        Different Locations

        The Garden Wedding first took place in the South Coast Botanic Garden Amphitheater where the ceremony was held. Then, we went to the desert garden to take some portraits. We headed to Elk’s Lodge for the reception.

        And if you like gardens, check out a this other garden wedding in the Arlington Arboretum in Pasadena, click here! That wedding’s ceremony also took place in the nature-filled area while the reception took place elsewhere, in a Los Angeles backyard.
