Shooting a wedding at the magical Wayfarer’s Chapel in Palos Verdes, California, has been a goal of mine ever since I heard about it. It’s a dreamy glass chapel, perched on a cliff, overlooking the ocean and surrounded by lush foresty greens. It is straight out of a fairytale! In fact, it has been the venue for several television and movie weddings, including Revenge, The O.C., and 90210.
I got the opportunity to shoot David and Celeste’s dreamy nuptials here, a couple of weeks back and it did not disappoint! You may recognize the gorgeous bride as Celeste, the hair and makeup artist from my Fantasy Series. As a long time friend and someone I have worked alongside on many projects, it was so amazing to get to photographer HER, on her own special day!
The two said “I do” during an intimate weekday ceremony, surrounded by their closest loved ones. It was the perfect overcast day (you probably know by now, that I love me some overcast skies). It even briefly showered during the ceremony, which was so cool to have raindrops falling down on the glass rooftop! Following the ceremony, we headed to Mar’Sel at the Terranea, for a cozy patio dinner filled with toasts and celebration. And with that, they began their Happily Ever After!
