The Date Estate Wedding

One thing that I knew for a fact leading up to this day was that it was going to be  FUN. It is an actual impossibility to NOT have fun around Rosh and Karissa. So when they told me about their wedding plans, I was so excited. These two have been close for years but were strictly in the “Friend-zone” for many of them. In Karissa’s words she said “It’s almost as if my heart knew before my head did”, because she loved hanging out with him so much. Their relationship was built on friendship and it shows. So much so that Rosh addressed Karissa as “Homie” in his wedding gift to her, which makes me love them even more. Take a look into their rainy, amazing day…filled with HUGE but AMAZING bridal parties, hilarious entrances into the reception, and one heck of a dance party.

Elise and James

Festive, Colorful, Frida Kahlo-inspired O’Donnell House Wedding

AH! I am so excited to be writing about these two!! James and Elise have the perfect love story. They started out as friends and not just your run of the mill friends, but BEST friends, for years. It was a love that finally was finally sparked after years over pizza and painting. A familiar love, but one with roots. My brother was best friends with these two in high school, so I’ve known them since I was a little 11 year old following my brother and his friends around, trying to be cool. The fact that these two got together makes so much SENSE. So much so that you think to yourself, how did that not happen sooner? They finally found their way to each other and not only was their wedding full of so much love and friendship, but it “got the band back together”… and it ended with one of the most epic dance parties that I’ve ever been a part of! Take a look at their day that Elise described as ” a festive, colorful, Frida Kahlo-inspired celebration that honored our favorite artists, poets and musicians.” It was perfect.

La Valencia Wedding
Kelli and Anthony

La Valencia Hotel Wedding

Kelli and Anthony live in Seattle and it just so happened that right after booking their wedding, I was in town photographing another couple’s engagement session. As soon as we met, I KNEW we would get along! They were not the only two that I met with, they also brought their ADORABLE dog Sherman! So obviously, I knew it was a match made in heaven. (If only our dog, Mazie wasn’t a 75 pound crazy animal, then we would take her EVERYWHERE.) Anyways, these two adorable humans (and dog) got married at the beautiful La Valencia hotel. These two (and their bridal parties) even braved the La Jolla bluffs in heels… which made for some awesome photos. Take a look a little peek into their wedding below!
